i strive to laugh atleast 5 times a day, continuously learn new things about the world, and not live a life of fear or regrets.
I have recently settled down, gotten married, and become a teacher after many years of traveling around Canada and the world. I traveled to 26 countries in my first 26 years, but have slowed down recently. I love meeting new people, learning new languages..and of course trying the local food wherever I visit.
Travel! Live! Smile!
What goes around, comes around. So be good!
