I'm Diego and I'm originally from Bolivia, South America. I lived in Bolivia until I was 19 years old, and then moved to the United States to study Industrial Engineering. After 7 years studying, I graduated university :) Instead of moving back to Bolivia or staying in the US to work, I decided to start a new adventure... and I decided to hit the road and travel to Europe!
My mother is Bolivian. My father is German. I'm a mix of the two, and I have both nationalities :)
I really enjoy and have a passion for:
- Literature (I am really into Latin American literature). I know deep inside that one day I would like to write a book.
- The arts (I like art in general, but my interest tends to gravitate towards painting).
- Interesting conversations about any topic. Friendly and educated discussions are very entertaining.
Lately, I developed an interest for water sports (sailing, kitesurfing, windsurfing). I believe that people that practice these sports experience a great feeling of freedom while practicing them.

I could read a couple history and sociology books and try to learn about different countries and cultures while sitting on a sofa and drinking coffee... but I'm not looking for such a passive experience! There is no better way to learn about a certain country or culture than by actually INTERACTING with the locals and being ACTIVE!
During all my life, I've made amazing friends from all over the world, and I still keep in touch with most of them!! I hope my experiences with WorkAway will allow me to create long lasting friendships too :)
