  • Description

    I am Ruben, 26 years old and about three years ago I fell in love with traveling. My plan was to finish my studies before traveling the world for an undetermined amount of time. Then Covid happened which made traveling a little more complicated. To satisfy my need to get away, I traveled to France for 2 months using workaway at the start of this year, but this left me eager for more. Now I have decided that, in spite of everything, I will make my dream come true and travel the world.
