Hasta luego!

24 de Junio, 2019, Ciudad de Oaxaca

Today I finally conclude writing my beautiful Central America chapter. Over the last 8 months, I traveled through four amazing countries, discovering new places, cultures as well as new parts of me. ✨

I learned to (somewhat) speak Spanish, I hiked over 10 volcanoes, I was hired as a mountain assistant guide, I watched countless sunrises and sunsets, I volunteered with a lovely Honduran NGO, I trekked 100km in the jungle in search of Mayan ruins, all, while meeting many, many beautiful souls along the way. The cherry on top of my latino sundae was the privilege I had to travel with two of my childhood friends as well as my parents. Merci, je me compte tellement chanceuse de vous avoir dans ma vie. 💙 Thank you to everyone that was part of my journey. You know who you are. Thank you for the friendship, the laughs and the memories we created. I’ll see you again, sometimes, somewhere around this beautiful planet. It’s a long life and a small world. 🌎

This trip was fruitful and enriching in many ways. I did not find my future husband, neither my life purpose nor my next job. Instead, I come back home with more drive and confidence than ever, new skills and knowledge, and of course, a longer list of places to travel.. 😅 I’m not exactly sure what’s ahead of me for now, but I know I am on the right path. Things will fall into places eventually. I trust life. And myself. 😊

My dear Latin America, you stole my heart with your warm people, your colourful culture, your stunning sceneries and por supuesto tus guapos hombres. I don’t think it will be long before I come back for more. But until then, time to go home and unpack that backpack. Hasta luego! ✌🏻
