Do you know where you come from?

Many people think that you cannot know where you are going until you know where you've been. I believe there is a certain degree of truth in that statement. My parents & their parents were born in Chile; my dad in the north and my mom in Santiago, its capital. From my mother's side, we … Continue reading Do you know where you come from?

Trust your intuition – it is always right!

10 cities I absolutely love! Here’s #10

Traveling is a big passion for me. I love to visit new cities and walk around, see the buildings, and absorb as much as I can from each one.

The meaning of Life, according to me…

You are the architect of your life: you get to choose what you experience. So give power to your dreams, not to your fears. Live passionately, take chances, even if it means, sometimes, getting your heart broken in a million pieces. Don't live by default. Be bold. Learn. Smile. Expand. Love. This is the secret of … Continue reading The meaning of Life, according to me…

When a quote moves mountains (or inspires you to cross an ocean, moving away from the mountains*)

I am a big fan of inspirational quotes. Back in early 2012, as I was making preparations to move to Sydney yet harboring a few small doubts (variations of "Am I doing the right thing?" mostly), a friend sent me this one (which has been usually attributed to Goethe). It was one of the coolest, … Continue reading When a quote moves mountains (or inspires you to cross an ocean, moving away from the mountains*)

“Choices” (did I hear anyone ask for some poetry?)

I believe in the power of choices. Who we are, and what we become, is a result of those choices, small and big. I believe in intuition. If you dare to look really hard into your own soul, you will find the answers you seek. I believe in dreams. If you are brave enough, your … Continue reading “Choices” (did I hear anyone ask for some poetry?)

Twilight sailing is over but winter series is almost here!

Sailing is such a fantastic sport. I am still deeply grateful for having found this hobby.; it brings me great joy. I got my first clue that it would be so about 11 years ago in Vancouver. My dad and I got inadvertently invited to sail with Bruce Winfield, currently CEO of Defiance Silver, out of the West Vancouver … Continue reading Twilight sailing is over but winter series is almost here!
