Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

This is my personal blog and a space that I try to make sense of my wandering life. Depending on the day it could be a helpful resource for the country I'm in, or a self-help guide. We'll just have to see ;)

Travel

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”

– Marcel Proust

Argentina

5 month study abroad in Buenos Aires. Chorripan. Polo ponies. Long bus rides and longer nights in the city that never sleeps.

Chile

Round 1: Spontaneous adventure with a stranger, bus rides to ghost towns, sand dunes and discovering the Pisco Sour (in all its glory). Round 2: Fulfilling the dream of discovering Patagonia. 5 months of teaching little chilenos. In a sheep shed. In the Future Patagonia National Park. Surrounded by wild llamas.

Guyana

Teaching video production with an old friend, making new friends with funny accents, and taking  dip in the “black waters” of the Amazon.

Mexico

Round 1: Family vacation to Puerto Vallarta. Iguanas, couples massages with mi hermana, corn rows and fishing for tuna the size of cars. Round 2 and 3: Crossing the border to Naco. Working at an orphanage and drug re-hab alongside some incredible people, for incredible people. Cow tongue tacos, horchata and tie-die craft time.

USA

7 states called “home” and a military family. Southern casseroles and horse races, pahking the cah in Hahvahd yahd, and island living on the West Coast.

Canada

Whistler Blackcomb ski bliss. Victoria’s punch bowls & bellinis. High tea at the empress and hours of flowers at Butchart Gardens.

England

Action-packed, culture-filled winter tour of the city. Museums, art and reuniting with a friend. Escape to the country; Robin Hood, castles, fox hunt, gourmet cheeses and more.

France

Red wine, famous sights, catching up with an old friend. Bullet train and the discovery of the best soda ever made…Orangina.

Jamaica

Friends, rum, and forced “yah mahn” accents from dreaded men. Waterfall climbing and tubing with Rambo, cruise food and festivities.

Dominican Republic

Trip leader for a great cause and in charge of a great group. Culture clash with Caribbean, Spanish and Haitian. Massacre river crossing and eye-opening border market. ESL classes with flirty little boys and girls with dance moves.

Costa Rica

Round 1: Spanish class at the UCR, followed by family time and WWOOF across the countries organic farms and some surfing to top it all off. Round 2: Balancing a 9-5 and travel time with life in the jungle.
