I called it my “who knows how long of a trip” since I had no idea how long it was going to last. I had a laptop with me to be able to do some work along the way.Continue reading “Summary of my “who knows how long of a trip””

A lot of travelers miss out of Uruguay due to logistic reasons since it is super easy to cross the border between Argentina and Brazil at the Iguazu Falls.

When I was about 12 years old, I told my parents that I wanted to become a dolphin trainer and move to Spain when I grew up. Combining the two things I loved, travels and animals. Only a few months later it was time to choose a third language to study in school. No surprise there, I chose Spanish. I have always had a tough time with languages though, I guess I was more of a math smart kid. Learning languages has never come easy for me, but I was determined to learn Spanish.
