Birthday Goals?

So, today’s a weird / crazy / awesome day… . . . Today is my birthday, and I don’t know how to feel because I try to do this thing every year; I try to spend my birthday in a new country every year, so I can remember that birthday, and that country. But, for…

Lost @ home

“Traveling – It gives you home in thousand strange places, then leaves you a stranger in your own land.” . . . You see, feeling homesick in another country, brings back the memories about things missed from home. But, feeling homesick at home, is confusing because you’re home, so you think you should feel fine….

Hello Fall?…

…So…when I normally think about Fall, I think about: – Leaves falling -Sweater weather -Time to get ready for snow…and Christmas… Well, that’s not the case for me this Fall because it’s Fall right now in Chile, and I can’t think about any of those things. Instead, I’m thinking about: going swimming, maybe getting ice…

Oceans…

My Own Material

Where I write…

Place, setting, object, method, etc. . . . Many bloggers have specific settings where they write and what they use (laptop, tablet, phone, notepad, etc.). They have an ideal place they go to write about a specific subject using their ideal method of choice. . . . I applaud those bloggers because I am not…

Strange, yet Fascinating! 

Wow! That went by quick! 2 weeks to living in Chile-in the books! I can’t believe it’s already, and only, been two weeks. It doesn’t feel like it’s been that long, but yet, it also feels like I’ve done so much. . . . This year (2018) has already been a crazy year, all about…

Street dogs everywhere! 

So, I’ve only been in Chile for a few days now, but one thing I’ve notice since I got here are all the street dogs. . . . Now, I didn’t say ‘stray dogs’ because they are not strays. They get fed, but when they grow up and are not puppies anymore people don’t want…

Coffee Shops…

No right or wrong…

There’s no right or wrong in the world, just different! . . . What you know in your country is, & will always be, different than what someone else knows in their country!  We all need to learn this and accept this truth because it will never change!  All cultures will remain different forever and…

Don’t be too quick to judge…

Yes..you are correct..that title was click bait… I really mean don’t judge a country by what you see in the media (just like: don’t judge a book by it’s cover or a person from the first time you meet them). The media is trying to convince you on which countries you should visit and which…
