Canada

Butchart Gardens Victoria Wall

I first went to Canada when I was about 11 or 12 years old. I went to the Niagara Falls. From what I remember, the falls were amazing. However, and I regret to say this, I made this trip way before I appreciated the privilege of traveling, so I didn't take pictures or tried to maximize my experience there.

The second time I went to Canada was the summer of 2010 when I was 18 years old. I went to Victoria and absolutely fell in love with it. The city, which is located in British Columbia, is rather modern and yet it is very green.

The one place I recommend going to is the Butchart Gardens. They are a beautiful set of gardens that are simply overwhelming. I'm not necessarily a flower fan, but I left the place with a whole new love for flowers.

Mexico

Mexico is my homeland; I was born in the outskirts of Mexico City on April 20, 1991. I lived there with all my family until I was 11.

As unfortunate as this sounds, I really don't know Mexico all that well. I know the general area where I live, but while I lived in Mexico, I didn't have the luxury to travel and visit the other provinces. However, I visit my family in the city every year, and even though I haven't lived there for almost 10 years, it will always feel like home to me.

United States

UF Stadium Sign Century Tower at the University of Florida

I currently live in Gainesville, Fla., so I could say I am well acquainted with the United States.
I've only been living in Florida since 2009, when I started studying at the University of Florida. I also lived in Virginia from 2002 to 2003. However, I think I can identify myself better with Florida as I have been living here the longest and I'm spending a significant part of my life here.
