6 months, 7 Cities, 6 Countries and 3 Continents, Doing What I Love

“It does not matter how long you are spending on the earth, how much money you have gathered or how much attention you have received. It is the amount of positive vibration you have radiated in life that matters,”
-Amit Ray-

 

I literally started 2017 ON FIRE! My Journey began receiving NYE at Granada, Nicaragua.; 1st of January I was initiated by fire at the mouth of the Masaya Volcano and the month finalized on the amazing Guatemala City. I went to Guatemala to get my Indian Visa, yes! you read correctly, India.

From America to Asia, I moved to India on February this year, and on the way New York awaited for me with it’s lights and never-ending nights! And so the adventure continued, from the West to the  East, the tropical and warm days came and that’s how Hyderabad opened its doors for us (My partner in adventures and I), and as its weather, the city and the people has been warm and surprising with us. The nostalgia of what once was the Nizam’s Kingdom, haunted by amazing remains of luxurious palaces and impetuous forts.

April never disappoints me, it blessed us diving on the amazing waters of the Indian Ocean with the best diving buddy @jseelartist, mesmerized by the sand and the unbelievable Bali beaches! Unforgettable water temples, sunsets, rice fields, food, Balinese coffee (not Luwak coffee to be clear) and unique architecture.

After coming back for a few days in India after our Bali adventure, love and Europe called our souls. The love for my sister got us in plane, and so we were on our way to France!

 

Paris, in the city of lights, love, fashion, art, perfume, onion soup, croissants, baguettes and endless nights, we had countless stories filled with love and laughter. Walking along the Seine River, observing the city from the Arch of Triumph, going through time at the Louvre, cheering at the top of the Eiffel Tower, visiting Marie Antoinette and Luis XVI at Le Chateau de Versailles having long chats, laughs and Rosé wine at le Jardins.

From Europe back to Asia, the Arabian Sea awaited for me. Along came June and so my soul’s calling to the West Coast of India, Goa.  A former Portuguese province, with a quite interesting contrast. The ruins of what once was a fort, the remains of the Portuguese architecture, combined with golden sandy beaches and an impressive wavy ocean.

Here’s July and so am I. Completely thankful and blessed, a new school year has started, and as I’m embracing every moment with arms wide open, I keep realizing that if you do what you love, the Universe will never stop surprising you.

 

Not all that glitters it’s gold, life is constant learning, Through this journey I’ve faced many challenges, but overcoming them and learning from them, and knowing that they are shaping me into my best version, brings countless blessings.

 

How do I do it? I do what I love everywhere I go, I teach online and I’m also currently  a Middle School Teacher and part of an unbelievable rocking Team of Educators in Hyderabad, India; Inspiring and making a positive difference in children’s lives.

Just believe in yourself, work with you and share you talents with others, not for what you get, but for what you give.
