The Campsite


It is a pleasure to announce that I will be the new Editorial Assistant for The Campsite! I will be working with Meghan J. Ward, a writer based in Banff, Alberta, the power behind the site.

I spent the last two or three years thinking about what I wanted to do next in life, without realizing that what I wanted was the one thing I did my whole life: writing. So, here I am with this challenge ahead of me – a great challenge by the way.

This also reminds me of my moving to Canada, in 2005, when I left a life that I loved to a new country, new language, and all the difficulties inherent to it. I kept telling Ricardo that I wanted my life back. Well, there you go. Almost nine years later, I am closer than ever to get there.

I started injecting more posts into my blog, to practice in my new language and to flex my writing muscles. I also decided, since we moved to Canada, to read just in English – something that was impossible just a few years ago became like second nature. TV and radio also helped a lot and, apart from the fact that my 6 year-old corrects me when I speak English, I think I can say I ‘sound’ much better in writing.

I will meet you at!
