My name is Ezra and I currently live in Vancouver, Canada. Previously, my life has included living in Northern California, and Shanghai as well. I love to travel and explore new places and cultures, and I can’t wait to start this journey! I’m really looking forward to practicing my Spanish. Hopefully I’ll be much closer to fluency by the end of this trip. It’ll be really interesting to see how we handle this new Spanish-reliant environment. I see many confused expressions and Spanish-English Phrasebook consultations in my future.

I enjoy spending time in the outdoors snowboarding, hiking, kayaking, or just hanging out at the beach with friends and family. My dog Hazel is my favourite adventure partner 🙂 I have done quite a lot of camping here in British Columbia, but it’s been a while and I’m excited to get out into the backcountry and experience these foreign and incredible landscapes (maybe I’ll have figured out how to use my camera by then). Since Grade 10, I’ve been hoping to take a gap year so I’m happy to be “gapping” and checking Machu Picchu off the bucket list too! I can’t wait to go on this crazy adventure with you all.

Buen viaje!
