When someone asks me "Where are you from?" I don't really know what to answer. I'm an Argentinean by blood, and because of my accent, and my culture. That's where my family's from, but still, I don't feel home when I'm there, never have.
I was born in Miami and grew up in Dominican Republic. I spent most of my life living between Chile and Argentina.
When I finished school I spent a year living in New Zealand on a Working Holiday Visa, and even though I was 19 and it was my first time there, this was the first place I could feel related too.
Even though, if I had to choose one place in this world that makes me feel home, it would be Alaska. So.. I don't know.. I guess I am, as many here, from nowhere, and everywhere.
I studied many careers I never finished, before studying photography. And even though this is what I studied, I've never worked on it.
I've had many jobs all around, but generally, and what I like the most, is related to hospitality and tourism.
There isn't really one thing I see myself doing for the rest of my life(besides traveling), I'm actually really lost since I have memory about what I wanna do for a living. I do know that I can't stand being at the same place, doing the same thing day after day. I get bored really easily.
Even though I'm 30, I'm still trying to figure out what I wanna do... And it's hard!
My first passion, besides the travels, has always been Astronomy(as in the stars and the universe, not Gastronomy and cooking, as everyone always look at me as if I misspelled and was trying to say something else) I was six years old and was already reading about it, taking courses. It just fascinates me! I also LOVE dancing, like a lot! and reading, and writing, and eating so much!!
But my great love, as you can see, is traveling. I thought only until a few years ago, I was gonna just travel forever. And maybe I will, who knows? But there are other things to think about when you get older, and fall in love! :)
And here I am now, trying to make both things work together, my biggest dream of traveling the world, and being with the person I love. It's been hard, I have to say, but we're making it work, and right now, the two of us are traveling around the world, for a year or so!
So this is a blog made by a Solo traveler, that fell in love and doesn't travel solo anymore, and I'm loving it so far!
I can't say there is one day I woke up and said: "Hey! Lets travel the world!" I think I didn't even know how to read or write when I was already talking about it. I've found between my things itineraries I've been doing since I was a kid. Well, whoever knows me can say this is the one thing I have always talked about.
So here I am.. I always liked writing and taking pictures. And have always thought of having a blog but never actually made it happen. I think this big trip was the moment: Now or Never.
So even thought I've been traveling for months already, I finally made myself to do it!
Not only I wanna have memories of all this in the years to come, and share it with my friends and family all around. But if there's any chance I get to help at least ONE traveler, in the way so many others have helped me with their blogs and their stories, well, I'm more than happy then!
Thanks for passing by and taking your time to read me! This is just starting, and I'm learning on the way how to make it work, but hopefully something nice will come out of this!
Hope you enjoy following my trip, and welcome to my world! (or our world seen through my eyes!)
