Traveler Bio

Hello, everyone! My name is Maurice, and I'm very excited to share everything about Spain with you all! I arrived here less than two months ago and learned so much about Spain's history, culture, and language. 

I live on the island of Hawai'i but was initially born in the Philippines. Growing up in two different countries with diverse backgrounds allowed me to open my perspectives and continue discovering more cultures. 

By sharing these special experiences with you, I hope to encourage you all to study abroad wherever you find yourself. I look forward to you joining me as I explore Spain!
