Introduction Post

Hey everyone, my name is Dimitri and I’m from Hanover. Hanover is a very small town in the middle of New Hampshire and seeing the world has always been an interest of mine. I’m an alumni of HMI Semester 36, and am thrilled to be back in a small community in the mountains. I love hiking in the mountains, backpacking, climbing, but I’m most passionate about skiing. 2 years ago I backpacked the Camino de Santiago in northern Spain, but my Spanish is still a little rusty and I want to improve my foreign language skills. I’m an adventurous person who loves taking on challenges. I’m excited meet all of you!

P.S. If you haven’t seen Mountain on Netflix I highly recommend it.
