to my site! In
celebrating my 40th birthday, I took a year off work to fulfill some dreams.
This website documents my experience during the year. It includes what
I encountered in this journey as well as my reflections of the first 40
years of my life - how I got here, where I am heading, and so on.
few years ago, I came to the realization that my life has been quite a
blessing and that I would like to share this blessing with those who are
less fortunate. Hence, the idea of a sabbatical was born and here I am,
giving myself the best birthday gift that I can imagine. There was no
specific day-to-day plan as to how the year will be spent, lest it would
feel too much like work. Basically, I spent approximately half of the
time working with charitable organizations in Latin America - mainly Costa
Rica - while the rest of the time I spent in traveling and learning things
that have always interested me. Along the way, I hoped to acquire a higher
level of fluency with the Spanish language, to foster some new friendship
and to gain a better understanding of the Latino culture.
