The origin of this blog are my dreams.
When I was younger, lots of years ago, I wanted to become a writer. And I wanted to travel. I always loved reading since it was a way of traveling from home. I wanted to have adventures, in real life and inside my imagination. I wanted to create fiction stories and meet imaginary characters.
I grow up and chose a different path, but I always kept dreaming about different places and cultures. When I was sixteen I spent one month in Ireland to learn English. That experience opened me the door to the world. The year after I went to England and one year later I went back to Ireland. By that time, I was sure I wanted to live abroad for a while. That wish came true and I obtained a scholarship to finish my studies in Sweden.
I spent two years in Sweden and then I went to France for eight years. I traveled every time I could during my holidays, but I never did a trip which was longer than two weeks. Finally, after ten years living abroad, I felt it was time to start the biggest adventure of my life: to travel around the world for one year. The trip started in November 2014 and it is still ongoing.
Colibrist is a blog created to share my travelling experiences from a personal point of view. I am convinced that the world is not as dangerous as we usually think, and that apart from the cultural differences, deep inside, we are all not so different, and we can all learn from each other.
I hope you will enjoy it!
