Cristal - The Tofu Traveler
Born in the Caribbean, I currently call Brisbane, Australia home. I've been travelling since 2004, where I spent a year in South America, volunteering, learning to dive and speak Spanish and generally finding my travel feet.
Ever since then, I've taken short breaks of 6 - 8 weeks travelling around Latin America mostly. I generally travel on my own but have sometimes dragged along some curious friends or family.
I'm a vegetarian and have found some great places to eat (Mexico - rice, beans and tortillas) and some pretty challenging places (Corn Islands - where all they seem to eat is fish). I do love my meal times and have a bad habit of not taking advantage of my hostel kitchen and heading out to taste test the smorgasbord that is street food.
I am fond of sharing my travel experiences and what I've learnt on my journeys with other people. I like seeking out adventurous new places as well as relaxing in the big cities. I believe that travel can be accessible for most people and hope to inspire others to follow their own travel passions!
