Our 2015 year was one of the most challenging ever so far. It started in Paraguay and ended in Ecuador. During this year we managed somehow to live in 4 different countries: Paraguay, Bolivia, Colombia and Ecuador. Like always we had planed another road-map. This was actually plan-B because plan-A failed. You may know what FAIL stands for? First Attempt In Learning! When you make a plan and with guarantee the output will be different than what was initially planned. That is called life I believe. Read more
