  • This morning while I was commuting to downtown, I saw a couple of cute girls that looked a bit disoriented. I approach them to offered my help and that's how I ended up meeting my new friends: Nieneke and Leticia who where visiting the US from the Netherlands. Before our conversation started I was a bit hesitating to approach them, but luckily I decided to use my Tourist Attitude to break the ice by introducing myself on a non very conventional way. At the end of the subway ride, we exchanged emails and a day later we hanged out for a long period of time. Actually, we discussed the possibility of traveling together to the Caribbean.

    My mom used to tell me: "Please talk to strangers!" because as an only child, that was a good way for me to don't get bored, and thanks to that skill, I've been able to meet fantastic random people all around the world such as Nieneke and Leticia who definitely made my day.
