About me: Hello, I am Ferdinand and it is a pleasure to meet you and to travel with you! I made my way traveling around Latin America for 8 months and I love to explore more places. I can excite myself for many destinations and types of things to do! If it is to explore nature with a hike through the mountains, learning about the culture by going to a museum or exploring the local cuisine, or if it's just resting at a nice place or going out to party. I am flexible and down for everything, according to what is the common mood of the group! I am sure we are going to have a great adventure.

Accommodation: I am looking to find accommodation to the TripMates' liking. Ideally an apartment with private rooms for each and a shared kitchen and shared bathrooms. The location will be selected for comfort and location, as to be in a safe area and to have a good connection to the center with public transport, so you may be able to go out until late and be able to come back with no problems. I am looking forward to exploring with you! Feel free to ask your questions in the Q&A!
