What's the most amazing thing you've seen while traveling?
I had the opportunity to backpack through Latin America for 10 months, visiting 18 countries. During my trip, I was able to stay with a family that lived in the Amantani Island in Lake Titicaca, Peru. Their house had no electricity, no running water, and they had very little to eat, but even in those deplorable conditions, every member of the family had the biggest hearts. The most amazing thing that I’ve experienced is the generosity and kind hearts of the people that I’ve met throughout Latin America.
