The week I almost gave it all up

There is a very funny story that turned my world upside down in only one week in 2020. I have no idea how I managed to keep myself so calm (I didn’t, but one year later I can finally come clean about how I was freaking out inside) because, back then, there was no wayContinue reading “The week I almost gave it all up”

It might feel a little too convenient to be writing about it during the holiday season, but it wasn’t on purpose. That also doesn’t mean that the holiday season won’t make it worse than it already is for those who aren’t close to family and friends. And guess what! We have an extra little somethingContinue reading “Pro Tips for when you’re feeling Homesick – Why I know what I am talking about and 5 things to make it go away faster”

When the words go blank

As you have probably noticed already, I am a very communicative person. I have no trouble sharing my thoughts on almost anything, and I actually like to do so. Building dialogues is something I always loved to do because I truly believe it’s the best way to bond with people you share your days with.Continue reading “When the words go blank”

Prayers of insistent anxiety

written on January 12, 2017; reissued in December 2020, with a wonderful sense of self-knowledge and self-love. I found myself attached to religion that week, and at that time it had been a long time since I had shaken my spiritual bias. I took advantage of the opportunity and also dusted off my esotericism. ThereContinue reading “Prayers of insistent anxiety”

Please, get yourself some eye candy and check out his work at 500px or his Instagram page.

I know, planning a trip is too exciting and you can barely wait until it’s time to finally pack and leave. You do checklists, you plan your days ahead (or you don’t, YOLO – does anybody still say that?), and all that routine before hitting the road. When you come back, you tell everyone allContinue reading “Here is a good advice before hitting the road”

The journey is the purpose

In 2018, Brazil experienced a peculiar situation regarding its inhabitants. With a negative migratory flow, it was possible to verify that the number of Brazilians who left their homeland definitively to venture abroad was greater than the number of “gringos” who entered our private paradise. More than 250 thousand Brazilians left for more than aContinue reading “The journey is the purpose”

Traveling isn’t going to change your life

I am sure that you’ve heard this story before. Someone you knew (or you, but that’s your decision) is always complaining of how much rough things are for them. Everything is always falling apart, they have no optimism in life, it’s all just a huge mess. All of a sudden, they book a trip for,Continue reading “Traveling isn’t going to change your life”

What does living abroad means to a 30+

Nearly three years ago, I decided to pack my bags and leave my country for a while. The main goal was to study abroad and then, make my great comeback to the warm and welcoming arms of friends and family.
