  • Description

    Five years ago, I was working in a multinational company and finishing my Mechanical Engineering career. I made a trip alone, on vacation ... and everything changed.
    Now, i have traveled more than 100.000 kms Hitchhiking and by sea; recently fulfilled a dream, crossing the North Atlantic Ocean on a sailboat working as a crew.
    I have written a book with some of my experiences and dedicate myself to share stories, learnings and visions in networks, media, communities and in schools.
    And off course, to travel. But i do not feel it is a trip, it is my life )
    My objective?
    To spread the word about what i experienced; in the world there are many more good than bad people, everywhere, waiting you with a smile.
    Spread that if you dare to follow your dreams, they will come true.
