I love the wordpress blogging community! When I started this blog, I wasn’t sure what I was getting into. But now, I love writing, and I love the community that comes with it. I also didn’t realize people would actually read my blog, let alone like it enough to nominate me for awards (I know…

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….

I have a question…

I said that phrase SO MANY (more like TOO MANY) times when I was living in Chile. Or, at least, that’s what I told myself because I thought I was getting annoying, but, turns out people didn’t mind answering my questions; and I learned so much by asking all those questions during those 3 months….

Coco!

So, I just had a “weird” experience. . . . I just went to the movie theatre here in Chile and watched a Spanish movie (w/o subtitles). . . . It might not seem like such a weird thing, but that’s the best word I could think of to describe it. It made me feel…

Stranger danger!

So, “stranger danger” can’t really be in my vocabulary anymore. . . . Remember when you were young, and your parents told you not to talk to strangers? Well, that comes with a lot of terms and conditions, the biggest one being: Traveling. P.S. I’m not talking about those creepy strangers in white vans (you…

Put in the work!

You can’t just put in work when you feel like it. Success won’t come overnight. Your dreams won’t accomplish themselves. Whatever it is that you want to accomplish; YOU have to put in the work EVERYDAY! Results come with consistency and patience! . . . I’ve been living in Chile for 2 months and I…

“Slang” palabras en español…

So, I’ve thought about writing a post in Spanish, but to be honest, I don’t know if my level of Spanish is ready to write a full post in Spanish (but I will soon, hopefully). So, I thought, instead, I’ll just write a few new Chilean slang words I’ve learned (because Chileans use a lot…

A cup of coffee…

A different type of post that I haven’t done yet on this blog, but I wanted to try it out. Let me know what you think in the comments (when you finish reading). . . . I’m just going to write what-ever and how-ever I would, as if we are best friends just casually meeting…

Learning…

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…

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…

A rollercoaster year!

Hold up! Wait! Before I even start to talk about this past year, I just have to say that in the beginning of this year I would have never imagined being here in Chile for New Year’s. That’s just crazy! . . . I’ll admit, this year has had it’s down/low moments, but in general,…

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…

Why I love learning new languages?

Hello – Bonjour – Hola – 你 好 . . . I’ve always been so fascinated with languages (I don’t know if that’s because I grew up speaking 2 already or because I just really like learning about different languages and cultures)! . . . Anyways.. It’s all just so fascinating to me… …That people…
