What brings me to make this trip?
It's a question I asked myself several times in recent months. Maybe it's not just an answer, but several that apply to a need: "Reborn"
I'm Gonzalo, Civil Engineer and Website Designer. For several years I was in a relationship which without waiting for it was terminated without even having an opinion about it. Just accept it and continue.
It was not easy, the reality is that if it were not for the activities I do in my community, my story would be different.
I have decided to tell it because I think you deserve to know why I need this change in my life. And if you continue reading, I promise you will understand my need to travel.
For 17 years I remained happy next to a woman I loved deeply. We were in the good and the bad, however, in the end, he decided that I was not his best option to continue his way and opted to leave. I did not stop her, because at the end of the day I'm just looking for her happiness and if that happiness is not in me ... Well, I just have to give her my blessing and hope she finds it on her own.
God prepared me for this hard time of my life since I have been involved in several activities that support the community for 5 years. Among them, by non-profit associations such as Proani (association that protects animals in the locality), Amor Gatuno (Love to Cats) that focuses on helping felines on the street. And in a partnership that supports low-income children through sports (PMVDAC).
Besides that in my community I participate in the support in the parish to which I belong. How? For what it takes, such as in the community dining room, collecting groceries or supporting needy migrants who arrive in the city, all under the charge of the parish priest of the church.
It has been gratifying for me to be able to help so many people without expecting anything in return. I have had the joy of receiving unmerited smiles and thanks for my actions and has made me great friends.
However, I went deeper into this world of help, which I have been leaving to myself, my plans, my projects and my future.
Therefore, thanks to the conversation I had with some friends, they made me see that I needed a radical change in my life, "A rebirth"
This is how God has allowed me to understand that a trip would help me a lot to find myself.
My goal is to travel to Ensenada Baja California, because I have met through talks with a beautiful woman who has made in my growth the desire to rediscover love.
And I say it's a gift from God because his signs are very obvious to me. In the area that I want to visit and possibly settle, there are communities in need with which I could continue participating in helping the needy.
Also, thanks to my work that only requires a laptop and internet, I will be able to continue with my current work on websites.
I know I've arrived here because that's where I should be. I know that through your help I can achieve my goal of traveling, possibly finding love again and continue helping others.
Know new traditions and cultures and grow as a person. Leave behind a past that I do not complain about because it had good things and bad things. But I know, that while I'm still in my city, the memory will not let me move forward.
That's why I ask for your support. In my current state, as I said, I lost everything, I've been working to rebuild my office, my home and my life.
I want to have a space for myself, without worries, to return with all the attitude and be the man I deserve to be for myself and for others.
I promise the people that support me, add them to my facebook and instagram so that together with me, we can travel that path and we can share it. Because in the end the important thing is that we grow together in this experience and I will be happy to share my happiness.

  • Leaving Everything Ready

    Leaving everything ready
    A part that I consider important to start my trip, is to leave everything that is left behind ready to receive me upon my return.
    This trip will give me the opportunity to bring new ideas and encouragement for projects that have been left in the shelter of a past that is fraudulent.
    However, I know that you have to keep an order and the first thing is to put in order what will be happened to be able to return with a new present destined for a better future.
    This is my office, which once meant an important part of my life and that through life situations became a constant reminder of my mistakes.
    Today I share with you this decisive step to turn a dream into a goal. Today I begin the preparations to leave an office ready on my return to conquer my dreams and new goals.
    Thank you for being part of this change. God bless you.
