What's the origin behind the name Travelling Chingrita?
During my life changing trip to Ecuador in Jan 2015, a random person coined the nickname "Chingrita" which I thought sounded pretty cute! Blending the Spanish words 'china', 'gringa' and 'seniorita' together and it stuck. Tada!

What's behind "live. love. surf"?
live: we should live to eat; enjoy your culinary experiences and not eat to live
love: spread positive vibes while you're at home or on the road; #showsumlove
surf: the foundation for all my personal travel destinations

What is your non-profit trying to achieve?

To inspire travellers from around the world to apply a similar model to a cause they feel passionately about. Wouldn't it be cool to be a proxy for your personal network to spread kindness to communities in need?
