About Me

IMG_5579Hi Everyone! My name is Jordan Gurkin and I am 25 years old. I grew up in Virginia and went to college at Wake Forest University in North Carolina. I spent the past 3 years working in sales for PepsiCo and I had the chance to live in Dallas, New Orleans, and Philadelphia. My passion has always been traveling and while in college I had the chance to live in Venice, Italy for 4 months and Madrid, Spain for 3 months. Some of my favorite countries (of the ones I’ve visited) are Ireland, Peru, Thailand, and Switzerland. I decided to start this blog because I recently moved to Mendoza, Argentina and found a job here as an ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher. After my semester teaching, I hope to spend several months backpacking around South America. I will be posting about my experience here in South America as well as recommendations for other places I have traveled to already.
