One summer at camp two years ago, I met a strange charismatic vagabond who gave me a huge green backpack under the condition that I would have to travel the world with it. However, instead of traveling the world with me, it has been sitting and stinking up a cabinet in my garage. Today I opened the cabinet, pulled the olive green heap off the top shelf, and gave that old backpack a chance to discover the world. The backpack holds all the travels I want to take, the stories I want to tell, the everyday world that I want to discover. This blog is where I can open up that old stinky backpack and take it on a journey.

      Hey Camila! Nice to see you again in the blog world. I seemed to have fallen off the blogging 101 classes once the busyness of the new year started rolling in. Thanks for the nomination! What’s a blog chain? It probably would be good for me to stay connected to the blog world if it involves that!

        A blog chain is that kind of thing that someone post something, tags people and now you have to tag other people. I probably must have made up the term from portuguese or something. It was kind of fun answering the questions. Take a look at the post i tagged you. Feel free to not do it, btw.
        And it’s a shame you didn’t keep track of the blogging 101 thing. There were some really interesting topics there. I have to say that i have a lot more traffic after it.
