A blog of Adrian's adventures! (Formerly a Peace Corps Blog) "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." – Mark Twain


Just arrived home in the USA!! Ya llegue a EEUU!! (Mira abajo para Español)

Two years with the Peace Corps in Paraguay is officially done! Made it back home. Can’t believe I’m back, two years goes by so fast when you love what are you doing. What a journey!

Words can’t even describe what an amazing and rewarding experience it is to serve as a Peace Corps Volunteer and finish. It has changed my life in so many ways, and the wonderful part too is that I know I was able to change the lives for the better for a few incredible Paraguayan brothers and sisters, and that is much more than enough.

I have learned many things, among many, in giving we find happiness and that giving and charity is a lifestyle we do each day, not just on Christmas or one day, and that changes our lives and of those around us, and even the world. Love is what is most important, God, family, and friends, not materials things or the “rat race to the bottom” we all so often fall into the trap of in the US. Matieral wealth is good but we must always remember those with out around the world, do what we can, and that love is the most important.

Thank you sooo much to God, family, my parents, my close friends, Peace Corps and the best staff, Volunteers and G42, Paraguay and the USA for the support and love through it all, in the highs and lows.

I am now definitely going through a reverse cultural shock unconfusing my Spanglish/Guarani to just English, all the development here, the fast busy pace instead the easy calm country time, delicious American food, and on and on.

In any event, Peace Corps was an amazing experience and can’t wait till the next adventure!!! Mission. Accomplished. Back. Home.
