Hi guys! I’m Beatriz, or Bia. I’m a Paulista from Brazil currently based in New York studying journalism at Hofstra University. I consider myself to have a pilgrim’s spirit – I can’t really stay in one place for too long. My next adventure will be held in Barcelona, Spain! I promise to keep you updated on my amazing discoveries through Europe ;D
