Half my life was lived outside my home country, pursuing my passion and exploring new cultures as I go along.
Not being married gave me the freedom to be where I want to be when I want to be. But I always try to return home to reconnect with my family.
My wanderlust lifestyle is in pursuit of a career that brings me to places that allows me to give and receive something in return. Places that allows me to meet people, visit places and experience life and cultures that changes me every day.

I mostly work overseas, and on the side, I do travel to escape, to get away from a highly stressful job. A job that requires from me to give your one hundred and ten percent every time. My escapades give me the chance to renew and recharge and the perspective I need to keep on going and give again more than what is expected of me.
Being mobile all the time is not always peaches and cream, it can get lonely too. I lost touch with some friends because of distance, and my absence means that I missed out on many of my family and friends happenings – weddings, birthdays, Christmas, new years, etc.
I held on to the lifelong friends I have when growing up and gained a handful of friends I continue to communicate working overseas. Others just fade away from me or I from them … you lost touch, you forget but those that remain, you cherish them.
That is one reason I write this blog – a way to reach out, to tell my thoughts and share my stories. Writing is cathartic. It makes your thoughts, feelings, emotions real. It is said the way I want it said, in a way, friends or family from long distance will understand. It is a way for me to tell my story, share my opinion, relive the stories of the past, thoughts of the future and of what is now, at present.
As I put more stories on this blog, you will know me more, and I hope you stick around and keep me company!
