  • Description

    I was born and raised in Bogota, Colombia. However, I lived a good portion of my life in USA. About 4 year ago I quitted my "successful job" and started my traveling and reinventing journey.
    I used to work in an office doing finances, it was a very solid job, but I was losing my mind and it was killing my body. Leaving behind the stability of my job was a scary decision but I will never change that stability for the rollercoaster of adventures, the multiple learning experiences, and smiley faces on my traveling path.
    Now I'm just learning from the nomad life and from the many beautiful people that I encounter everyday on the road. The journey continues...
    I am very interested in learning photography, cooking, and in opening a small hotel or B&B one day. I just want to do something that I’m passionate for.
    The first step that I took to start my life again is to travel, I had visited about 39 countries so far, I think that traveling is giving me the opportunity of learning and getting so much good energy and knowledge. however, now I'm kind of feeling ready to stay in one place for a while and learn a new language.
    My goal is to meet good people that can serve as inspiration, people that stick to their dreams. I will like to pick up some positive vibes to continue my journey.
    I am very organized and I will treat you and your place with care and respect. Please let me know if you have any question.
    Please take a look at my profiles in workaway (host), couchsurfing, and AirB&B for references, reviews, and feedback.
