About Me

I was born in Honduras, a relatively small country located in Central America, which caters visitors with uncrowded and magnificent beaches, tropical natural parks and vestiges of the Mayan culture. Curious? Check this travel guide! I studied in Grenoble, France and after graduating, spent a few years in Brisbane Australia. For reasons that I am yet to determine, I then decided to trade the sun for the gloom by moving to Tartu, Estonia. Where next?
