I was born in a place you would never guess, grew up in a place many wish they could go to, and lived in and been to many places people could only dream of. I love places. I love traveling. I love (and hate) change. I love new things. I love food. I am a nomad. I am a permanent foreigner. Words are important. My family is important. And those who I have the privilege of calling friends are important. The name is Mariaa, Don't forget that last "a".
