A bit of a late intro

Hi y’all! I’m Isabella, but you can call me Bella. I’m from Colorado Springs, Colorado in the U.S. Although I did spend a lot of my adolescence living in multiple states in the Southeast (which is why I say y’all). I’m definitely a food tourist and I’m extremely exited to be able to try any foods I can get my hands on. I think it’s one of the quickest ways to literally ‘consume’ a culture. Speaking of culture, I’m technically half Colombian. I’ve never been able to connect with anything similar to my culture in the states so I can’t wait to immerse myself in Peru and Bolivia, and the perk of learning Spanish while on the trip is an awesome plus (I’ve never been more than maybe 1st grade level proficient with the language).

Some other things about me;

  • I have a dream to build a completely sustainable house in the Canadian wilderness
  • I want to be completely off-grid one day
  • I love minimalism
