My name is Autumn Standing and believe it or not, I’m an earthling too. Despite my extreme double-jointedness I am a rather normal human being who loves swimming, licking brownie batter from the spoon (much to my mother’s chagrin), and has recently discovered a passion for unconventional traveling.
I am a lost junior Global Tourism and Spanish major with a minor in Business pretending to study at Colorado State University with a new and exciting career choice every other week. Last year, I finally decided to let loose those crazy hairs I’ve been attempting to tame since my 10-year-old dreams were substantially about getting kidnapped or running away from home to some totally new and exotic place. Having gained 10 years on that person I chose to start out a little more responsibly with a study abroad program in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It was (is) my first time outside of my cozy 48 and wow did that blow (is blowing?) my mind.
A dulce de leche lover at heart, I found something here in Argentina that makes me feel at home. I have been diligent in keeping my promise (thus far) to my Statian (US) friends not to fall in love with a burly latin model with a sexy accent, but I have instead unexpectedly lost my heart to the city and culture of Buenos Aires. Follow the adventures of the clumsiest, spunkiest, and most flavorful yankee I know in Buenos Aires and I promise to try not to bore you!
