After our trip to San Sebastian I came back with a clearer idea of the extent of the damage the hurricane had caused in Puerto Rico.

This blog, my story and my photography is my version of leaving a mark in the world for others to see and appreciate. A life is worth living always, yet sharing it, thats the real beauty!
