Travel Blogs

My travel blogs are written from my experiences traveling around the world, and they contain all the stories, tips, and awkward situations that I have gotten myself in.

Trapped in-between cultures: Who am I?

First let me tell you a little about my history:  I was born in a South American country and grew up in a part American/part Latin culture.  My first language was Spanish but I also speak English, Italian, and conversational French and Portuguese.  I by no means look Spanish with pale white skin and green […]

The Blue Lagoon is one of Iceland’s most popular attractions drawing the attention of hundreds of thousands of tourists every year.  The lagoon is actually a geothermal spa fed by water from a nearby geothermal plant.  The water originates near a lava flow from 6,000 feet at its deepest level (2,000 meters).  The actual lagoon […]

What I’m most excited about living in South America

Parliament hill in Ottawa, things to do in ottawa, ottawa sightseeing, parliament hill

There is quite a bit of history in the city and […]
