Now, what?

Now, we learn to become a missionary!


We learn to turn those sacrifices into choices.

We stop feeling lonely & start making friends.

We replace fatigue with excitement.

We let go of anxiety & find peace.

We don’t feel defeated, just courage to win.

We stop doubting & learn to trust.


We always know everything will work out fine!


Thanks for reading! I hope this post inspired you to make the best of every situation by turning negative experiences into positive results.

10 year challenge…

So much has happened in the last 10 years that it would literally take me a 300-400 page book to tell you all about it.
So, instead of making you read all that, here’s a poem I wrote to sum up the last decade of my life:


9 countries
4 Schools
5 jobs
Over 100 flights
More than 100 adventures
Lots of lessons learned
Millions of new friends
So many new experiences

9 security checkpoints
4 graduation ceremonies
5 new-employee forms
Over 100 foreign languages heard
More than 100 pictures taken
Lots of languages learned
Millions of hellos & goodbyes
So many different realities

900 international flights
4 diplomas & certificates
5 million interviews
Over 100 new faces seen
More than I could ever remember
Lots of new skills acquired
Millions of doors opened & closed
So many amazing opportunities


This decade has truly been amazing, life-changing, & full of growth for me. And, I can’t wait to see what’s next!
I hope you’ll stick with me through it on this blog because I still plan on posting on here!
This blog is one of the most amazing things that I started in the past decade, and I don’t plan on stopping now!


Thanks for reading my random thoughts these past years.
I have so many new adventures coming in 2020, and I can’t wait to share them with you!

P.S. This is also the decade when I created all of my current social medias!!!
It feels crazy to me that I have had Instagram, Twitter and YouTube for exactly 10 years.
And, that I have had this blog for 3 & a half years now!

Here’s to continuing to:

My Own Material

For today’s post, I was challenged to look through my old Facebook, Instagram or Twitter posts and pick something that stood out to me and write what I think about it now.

. . .

So, I chose to look through my Instagram feed and, while scrolling through, my very first Instagram post stood out to me.

Here it is:

The comment under it, just said: “Smile”.

. . .

While thinking about how I feel about it now, I could only say: “I’m so glad this was my first Instagram post because it reminds me to always remember to smile, no matter what’s happening around me. Smiling is so much easier (and much more worth it) than being angry or upset at the world all the time.” And, just like the comment says, it’s simple; just Smile (one powerful word).

Just a simple smile can turn your whole day around!

. . .

And, also, while scrolling through my Instagram feed, I noticed how much it changed and evolved throughout the years.

From: Just random pictures I would find on the internet that seemed interesting.

To: Pictures I take on my own adventures.

It changed from, a random Instagram account, to, more of a traveling account.

It was very interesting to look back and see my own journey because it helped me see that I’ve come very far. And, it gives me hope that I will still keep going far.

. . .

So, now I challenge you to go through one of your social media feeds and find something that sticks out to you, OR, just look at your journey and notice how much your posts have changed over time. (Comment below with what you discovered).

Thanks for reading! I hope this inspired you to remember where and how you started, and to have faith and hope in your future.

Learning…

day7-tweet5

For the record: I don’t know the person that posted the previous tweet, but I very much agree with it.
Here’s why:

. . .

As a high school and college graduate, I do think education is important to start your life by learning the basics.
But, as a traveler, I know that I still have a lot to learn. And, the more I travel, the more this reveals itself to me more and more every day.

You see, I’ve realized that once you start to travel to different countries in the world, you will truly realize that all those things you learned in school were average knowledge to get you started with your life.

. . .

This is why I started to travel and write in this blog; because I wanted to encourage people to travel and always keep exploring and learning, no matter how smart they think they are. There’s always something out there in the world that you can learn (it’s big enough, you’ll find something).

. . .

Now, I’m not saying that you should quit school and just travel (don’t do that).
What I’m saying is: Don’t think that just because you have the best diploma out there means you know everything.
Think about it this way: “If you can’t speak every language in the world, you still have a lot to learn.” (that’s a little exaggerated, but you get the point).

I hope this post made you think, & inspired you to keep exploring & learning!

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 doing strange & fascinating things (and it’s still only January)

. . .

From: 
Listening to people speak so fast in Spanish.
To:
Living in another country (alone).
Not a thing about this year has been normal (compared to all the past year’s of my life). 

. . .

Seriously, though, listening to people speak another language has become so fascinating to me because they do it with such ease (obviously I know it’s their native language), yet for me to follow along, takes a lot (and I mean an extra amount) of effort. 

And, every time I listen to people speak Spanish, it’s so fascinating to think that that’s how I sound to them when I speak English. 

. . .

And, as if listening wasn’t hard enough, when I think I know what they’re talking about, I’m usually wrong because I missed an important word or part of the conversation. 

. . .

Living here in Chile is like being a kid all over again and needing to start over at 0 & learn how to speak all over again & train my ears to listen to a foreign language as if it’s normal. 

But, I’ve asked myself this question multiple times since living here:

“Exactly, how, do you learn & become fluent in a completely new language as an adult?” 

And, if you came here for answers, I’m sorry but I’m still figuring out the answer myself, but I can say: 

Part of it is because our brain isn’t as fresh as it was when we were babies, so it’s harder for you to soak up and retain things & catch on to the tones in peoples voices.

So, you end up having a slight accent when you speak because that’s what you grew up hearing and that’s what your brain thinks words should sound like. And because you have an accent, you feel subconscious about speaking, in fear of being made fun of. And because of that fear, you just don’t speak, and you never practice, and you never learn.

So, what I’m trying to say is, that if you are trying to learn a new language:

Don’t be afraid to speak it because that’s truly the only way you will even come close to fluency in that language. 

But, let me warn you, it will take a long time. 

But, it will definitely be worth it! 

Thanks for reading! 
Now get out there and go learn a new language & don’t give up on it!

First Post of 2018!

I can’t believe it’s 2018!
That’s crazy!

It’s also so crazy that I spent my New Years’ in
a new continent and a new country
for the first time!

. . .

So, if you haven’t been following my previous posts, I am currently in Chile (since December 27, 2017), and I will be living here for the next 3 months (until March 26, 2018).

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 them living in their house. So, they end up living on the streets and people just feed them when they come to their door. 

Now, unlike popular stereotypes, this doesn’t mean that people don’t care about the dogs; people actually care a lot about the dogs, but their houses are not very big to take in a big dog when it grows up. They can’t take them in their small houses, and they don’t have a huge backyard for the dogs either, so they figure that it’s better if they roam free. 

And, on the bright side, this way the dog never gets forgotten, and gets fed and loved by multiple people. 
Thanks for reading my first thoughts about chilean culture! (more to come soon)

Santiago, Chile – Day 1 

So, I’ve officially boarded the plane to Chile. And, all I want to do right now is sleep because it’s currently 01:00 (please consider this when reading the following post)

For those of you interested, I’m flying in a Boeing 777-300ER. And, it’s a completely full flight. But, even though I will be squished in this plane for 10 hours, I am absolutely pumped to land in Chile. Right now, I’m really tired, but I know that once I land, I will catch a second wind of energy. 

3 hours later…

I just woke up to the sound of my ear buds playing Spanish music and the smell of breakfast coming. These sounds and smells made me even more excited, (but also a little nervous) for the adventure ahead. I’m excited (and nervous) to see if I learned enough Spanish, and to see what it’s like to live in another country. 

2 hours later… (landed)

Well. I’m here, standing on the porch of my hostal room. And, can I just say that as soon as I landed, culture shock (& the heat) hit me like a brick. 

I mean, I’ve been preparing for this trip for a while, but still, nothing could have prepared me for this surprise for the following reasoms:

1- I’m coming from winter weather (-10) to Mediterranean summer weather (+30).

2- My brain didn’t realize how fast people actually speak Spanish. They understand me and then think I’m fluent, so they speak faster which makes all my conversations lasts maximum 5 minutes. 

. . . 

So, it’s 22:00 on my first day (technically half day) here in Chile. (Landed at 13:00 & didn’t get to my hostal until 14:30). And, since then, I’ve just been walking around discovering everything I can, until I crash for the night. 

Seriously though, I am SO tired (12 hours of flying later). I was ready to go to bed at 20:00, but I’m trying to get over jetlag as quickly as possible because I have a busy and exciting 3 months ahead of me. 

And, even though all I did today was walk around and visit the local grocery store, I feel like I already learned a lot about the culture.

. . . 

Well, that’s my journey here and my first thoughts during my first day in Santiago, Chile.  I’m going to sleep now, so tomorrow can be an even better day. 

¡Buenos Noches!

P.S. I don’t know if I’ll actually continue writing these everyday day with day 1, day 2 and so on; but for now, let’s say so. 

Thanks for reading!

Always use a compass! (or a map)

It doesn’t matter if you’re traveling in a new country or exploring & discovering yourself; you should always use some sort of compass (or map)!

. . .

Your moral compass is one of the best compasses you can have because it will always lead you in the right direction on a trip, or in the voyage of life!

In the nature VS nurture debate, one of the main arguments is about morals and where they come from, and why people do the things they do.Well, I believe it’s really just both.
Depending on how much peer pressure you can handle: How reliable is your moral compass? Do you have integrity? Are your morals strong enough that you will follow them no matter what, or will you give into peer pressure.

. . .

  • Nature means that you are easily affected by peer pressure because you grew up with a weaker moral compass that you didn’t use much.
  • Nurture means that your morals are strong and nothing will pressure you into doing something that you feel is wrong because you grew up using your moral compass a lot and you know how to use it.

So, even if you believe that one is stronger than the other, you should always make sure you know how to use your moral compass & that it is strong enough to lead you through the peer pressure trips of life.

~A compass always leads you through one amazing adventure to the next great trip!~


Thanks for reading! I hope this post inspires you to keep traveling through your own life and to always:

Dear millennials,

 

older-computer
Do you remember this computer? If yes, then the following letter is for you!

. . .

Disclaimer: For you non-millennials out there, a millennial is defined as:
someone born between 1980-1990, and reaching adulthood in the early 21st century.
Let me reassure you that even if you are not a millennial, you will want to read the following letter.

. . .

Dear millennials,

     WAKE UP!!! THIS IS, YOUR WAKE UP CALL! Calling you back to reality!

millennials
The internet is costing you, your life!

Yes! We know, you grew up with internet access at all hours of the day, but that doesn’t mean your life needs to depend on it. Trust me, You can turn it off for a few hours; and you won’t die.

~LET’S STOP THE LABELS!~

You can turn off the Wi-Fi and read a book, or write a letter to a friend (yes, those are still a thing that people do), especially if your friend lives far away or you haven’t seen or talked to them in a while (letters are better than just texting: “hey, sup?”. It means much more). I hope you agree. 

And, if it’s too difficult for you to turn off your internet at home, go somewhere far away where you won’t have internet access at all, for at least a few hours.

I recommend, going to another country, so you aren’t tempted to turn it back on, and where you can get outside and explore a new culture and have an amazing adventure, off the internet.

The reason I’m writing this letter and trying to wake you up is because, while researching what the media says about millennials for this post; I realized that most of the things they say are not very positive. The media thinks you rely on the internet for everything and that, if the internet disappeared, you would be completely lost (for some people that’s definitely true); Some of you millennials are taking this thing too far, you are using the media as an excuse to be on the internet all the time.

But, What if, the internet really did disappear for a day (or longer)? What would you do then?

I know what the media would do. They would rub it in your face and tell you “I told you so!”.
And, when that day comes you won’t be able to use it as an excuse anymore because they will be right and your life will actually become exactly what the media predicted.

Do you really want that to happen? Do you really want the media to control your life? Do you want the media to be right?

I hope you answered “no!” to those questions because you need to start taking charge of your life and ignoring the labels the media places on you. The media only places labels on you because they know you will agree and go along with everything they say.

~So, I say: “Let’s start ignoring the media and take charge of our own lives.
Let’s set ourselves and our futures up for success!”~

Whether you’re a millennial or not; If you’re with me on this, get off the internet for a few hours a day and go enjoy the world around you. It’s truly a beautiful world & you can learn a lot more than you can on the internet!

LET’S PROVE SOCIETY/THE MEDIA WRONG!
Let’s prove to them that we don’t need the internet for everything!
(because deep down we know they are actually wrong and we know that we actually can survive without internet for at least a few hours a day)

Sincerely,

A Fellow Millennial that doesn’t agree with the labels society has placed on us (they’re not all 100% accurate, but some definitely are) & I think we need to change that.

. . .

Thanks for reading!
If you agree with anything stated above, share this post (if you want)!

Coffee Shops…

I wrote a post earlier (last month) about Grocery Stores and how much you can learn about a culture by visiting a grocery store.
So, I recommend that before you read any further, you should go read that post.
Here’s the link: The Grocery Store

So, I’m sitting here, in this very diverse coffee shop.
I come to this place every morning to get coffee before going to work, and I sit down for a bit and I find myself looking around at the people walking in and out.
And, I realize that we are all here for the same reason.
However…
Although, we are all here for the same reason this morning, we are all very different.
We are all ordering something different, going to different jobs, we all come from different backgrounds, we all have different views of the world, etc.
But…
Even through all those differences, we are all living in the same city, taking a bus/tax to get our morning coffee before going to work.

The previous scenario is relevant for wherever you are in the world because when you sit down in a local coffee shop in a new country and watch people walk in and out; you can learn a lot about the culture.
Watching the type of people walk in and out of a local coffee shop can teach you a lot about the diversity of that culture because you will start to notice that even though we are a diverse world we aren’t all that different (e.g. we all want our morning coffee/breakfast).

That is why I love to visit local coffee shops in a new country because it’s a great way to learn about the culture of a country.

The menu in a local coffee always has some similar things that I can recognize (like, coffee or tea), but there’s always a specific item that’s popular in that country.
And, that specific item can usually tell you a lot about a culture.

For example, in coffee shops in North America, there might an item that is sold in every coffee shop (like, donuts) because donuts are said to go with coffee in the morning in North America.
However, other countries might have another item that they sell in every coffee shop (like, croissants/baguettes in Europe that are sold everywhere).
Croissants/Baguettes in Europe are like donuts in North America.

Every country has one item they sell everywhere that represents that countries’ culture!

So, next time you are in a new country; Visit a local coffee shop and order the most popular item. Chances are that item will be something unconventional to you, which means that it will teach you a lot about the country and the culture.

Thanks for reading! I hope this inspired you to travel and try new things to learn more about different cultures!

The Unknown… 

I’m tired of feeling stuck! I want to travel & experience new & different things!

. . .

I’m tired of living in this bubble of what I know about the world. I am starting to get tired of my comfort zone (I think this is a sign that I need to change something). I want to travel & explore the world because I want to learn more about the unknown.
The bubble that I live was a great place to grow up in, but, now I am ready to grow/change outside of my comfort zone.

. . .

After the few trips abroad that I’ve taken, I now realize that everyone should try & grow outside of their comfort zone because it’s the only way to truly learn who you are, while also learning that the safe bubble you currently live in is not an accurate representation of yourself and the world.
There’s a whole world out there waiting for you to discover it & learn the truth about yourself and the world you live in!

. . .

Sometimes we need to let go & move on; away from what we know because there’s so much that we still don’t know.
We must travel & see new things to keep growing!

. . .

Some people will say that they grow during different seasons of their life, but I know (from experience), that it’s a different type of growth.
You see, growing inside your comfort zone during a different period in your life is vastly different than growing outside your comfort during different periods in your life.

When you grow outside of your comfort zone, in the unknown, you are not only growing during a different period in your life, you are learning, growing, exploring and realizing that you are different than you thought.

You are growing during a different period in your life in a completely new environment.

If you’re scared to step out into the unknown, you need to realize that being scared means that you’re too comfortable where you are and should really consider stepping out.
And, if you’re scared because you don’t know what will happen, that’s perfect!
That’s why it’s called “the unknown”, you shouldn’t know what’s going to happen next.
That’s what makes stepping out into the next chapter of your life so exciting; you are completely oblivious to what will happen next (just like traveling; you can plan a trip as much a you want, but when you arrive at your destination your plans could change drastically, & there’s nothing you can do about it, it will inevitably happen). But, that’s what makes traveling so exciting (at least, for me), going with the flow & living in the moment.

. . .

Anyways, all this to say:
Please don’t be afraid of the unknown! I know it can be scary at first, but who knows what can happen if you just take that step you’ve always been scared to take! The only way to find out is to:

Step out into the unknown!

 

Thank for reading! I hope this post encouraged you in some way! Now, get out there and:

Where’s the love? 

You know, I think everyone in the world should listen to that song…
It speaks the truth, and it’s so relevant for the current state of the world right now.

. . .

There’s so much terrible things happening in the world right now; we all just need to look past it and start to love each other! Because…

Love is the only thing that will prevail ’til the end! 

Love always wins!

Why is it so hard for us to just love our neighbours? Why do we always have to be at war with each other? Why do we seek to make enemies with other people? 

We are all just human beings anyways, why do we treat one another SO differently?

Seriously though, we might be different but we are still all human beings, and we should start treating each other like we want to be treated.
The world would become such a better place if we all treated each other with love & respect! 

Think about this:

People are drowning in the water that you drink everyday or People in another country are paying for you to go to school for free! 

What if, instead of going to school, YOU spent all your days working/slaving just so someone on the other side of the world could go to school for free to get a much better job/income than you? 

How would you feel if that was your life?
In other words: How would you feel if you were looked down on because of where you live in the world?

We need to stop discriminating between race and cultures because we are all human beings here on earth to live our own lives.

Yes, it’s true that life looks different in each country, but that doesn’t mean WE (humans) are that different! We’re actually quite similar, we just have different views of the world from our own perspective, and we have different ways of seeing/doing everyday tasks.

So, next time you take a trip abroad, take a look at the people around you (locals) and what they are doing. It’s probably something similar to what you would do back home; It only looks different because they do it a little bit differently than you! 

Love is the key!
Love is the answer!
Love is the solution! 

-Verse taken from this song: Where’s The Love?

They (the media/society) don’t want us to love because if we all loved each other, they wouldn’t have anything to talk about anymore! 

Do we really want to let them win or Do we want to live in a safe and happy world? 

It’s OUR choice! We decide what type of world we create and want to live in! Let’s make it one that we’re proud of; that future generations will thank us for! 

. . .

The world is broken, and the only way to fix something that’s broken is with glue!

Love is like glue for the world! Once we start loving one another, we will be glued together by love & understanding for one another! Love (glue) will bring us closer!

And, if you don’t understand how you could possibly love someone on the other side of the world; I suggest you take a trip abroad because it will really open your eyes; because

That’s what the world needs right now: OPEN EYES & HEARTS!

&

                  MORE ACCEPTANCE & LOVE! 

 

Thanks for reading! Remember to always choose love and positivity! They are truly the secrets to life! Let’s remove hate from the world and turn this world upside down!

Share this post (or the song) with someone you care about.
Let’s start spreading love now!


Also… if you read this post ’til the end, I (sincerely) thank you, it means a lot!

The Grocery Store

The most interesting & culturally diverse place in the world! 

. . .

Seriously though, grocery stores really are the most interesting and culturally diverse places in the world! 

See it for yourself, next time you are in a new country.

Just go visit the local grocery store because you can learn a lot about a culture just by visiting a local grocery store.

. . .

Grocery stores are quite different in every country for multiple reasons. 

Here are a few differences that I’ve noticed:

1- Currency!

Visiting a local grocery store is an easy way to learn the worth of the currency; The different currency means that the prices look different (this helps you better understand the exchange rate).

2- Set up!

Each country has a different view of which foods go where; Based on popularity of that item in the country, and the size of the store area. This also differs between outside markets & inside stores because some countries only sell fruits and vegetables in outside markets while the other items are inside a general store, and vice versa.

3- Items!

Visiting a local grocery store is a great way to learn the popular local food items. It also shows you new and/or different items that you might not find in your home country because grocery stores around the world carry different items that others wouldn’t have, based on; item availability in the country.

Those are just 3 of the main reasons why I love to visit local grocery stores in new countries because you can learn so much!

Grocery stores are kinda like free museums; except better because you actually get to experience the culture, while being completely submerged in it.

And, you get to see new things that you wouldn’t normally see in a normal grocery store (one that you’re accustomed to)

What you know is not all there is in the world!

There’s so much out there to learn about & explore! 

So, next time you visit a new country, visit a local grocery store and take a closer look at those 3 things because I promise, you will already feel like you know a lot about the culture of the country. 

Thanks for reading! I hope this post inspired & encouraged your wanderlust!

P.S. If you notice another cultural difference in grocery stores; Please comment below, I would love to learn more!

Country-Island-City kid…

You’re such a city kid! You belong on the island! You seem like a country person! 

. . .

If you’ve never been told any of these sentences, then you’re doing a great job at blending in with your surroundings! Congratulations! 

However, if people tell you those things, it doesn’t mean that you’re not still great at adapting to your surroundings; it just shows that sometimes people see your last destination in you because you’re still learning to adapt to your current surroundings!
And, that’s totally fine! It just means that you’re taking your time to learn about your new surroundings (the new culture), so, when you do adapt, people think you fit in well! 

. . .

Never be afraid to take your time adapting while in a new place! 

Learning about a new culture takes time (as it should) because in order to truly fit in you must, first, learn about the ins & outs about the culture from your new surroundings!

In order to truly fit in, you must stand out, while learning to fit in! 

 

Thanks for reading! I hope this post inspires you to continue to learn about different cultures around the world!

Wander Always… 

I have major wanderlust! I am always homesick for places I’ve never been! I always want to be elsewhere and my wanderlust grows stronger the more I Travel!
Every time I travel, I’ve found that the best way to truly wander is to just get lost and immerse yourself completely in the moment and the culture!
You must get out of your comfort zone and go somewhere completely new & different where no one knows your name->That’s what true traveling and wandering is! 

. . .

If you related to any of those statements above, then you will definitely relate to the following post.

Traveling is a way of life! It’s a life long adventure that never ends! And, the only way to make it even better is to explore the world!

There’s so much to see out there that I can hardly sit still (just thinking about it and writing this post; I need to see it all, it’s all so fascinating & exciting)!

I want traveling to become my life because it’s so exciting to me to just explore new and different countries and their cultures. 

Every time I go on an adventure, it becomes more than a simple trip because I live for new adventures & new experiences!

. . .

Some people say that they dislike traveling and everything that goes with it. I don’t and will never understand this because for me it’s what I live for; Traveling is what keeps me waking up every morning.

Everyone has that one (small or big) thing that gets them out of bed in the morning; whether it’s: family, school, work, the sun, the rain, going for a run, etc. Something that gets you excited for the day ahead.

Well, for me, that reason is: Traveling!

. . .

Here are five reasons why (I think) you should travel to a new country (at least once):

1- Get out of your comfort zone!
Get away from what you know and what you are accustomed to; Life’s not meant to be lived in one place.

2- Learn something new!
True learning can only happen when you leave your comfort zone because there’s so much you don’t know until you travel and explore a different country & culture.

3- See the world and the people in it!
We are all different, but we’re also so similar. The only way to truly understand what that means is to travel because the world seems big now, but once you travel you will realize that it’s even bigger than you thought.  You need to see and experience more than just your little bubble (comfort zone).

4- Become humbled by your experience abroad!
Traveling really does humble you because you realize how little you actually know about anything. And, sometimes, when you can’t speak a language, you get frustrated because you feel dumb, but that’s why we travel: to learn, be humbled and open our eyes to more.

5- Stop surviving and start living!
Life’s not meant for you to just work and pay bills; start Living your life to the fullest. Stop being stressed, scared or anxious, let go of every worry and doubt & take a trip.

Two extra reasons (that I just thought of while writing this post):

1- No one I’ve ever met has said that they regret traveling; so what do you really have to loose (I promise you have more to gain than you will ever loose by traveling)!

2- Traveling makes your life exciting because it gives you more real and interesting stories to tell (you can teach people what you learned while traveling, and encourage them)!
