About Me

Long hair and smiles.

I always find that writing the “About Me” portion of a profile is a tedious process. That’s why I like to start with a picture so you can have an image of the person behind the words. If a picture is worth 1000 words like they say, then I am off to a good start 🙂

On April 1st 2013, I embarked on a journey to the wonderful country of Guatemala. I didn’t know much about this country but I was eager to discover the culture and add new experiences to my life. So I packed up everything, hopelessly tried to recall the Spanish class I had taken in 6th grade, and moved on to my new life.

It’s amazing to see how you can change and adjust to a completely different style of life. While some things seem similar, I tried to look at everything through the eyes of a new-born – unbiased and without assumptions. I cherish all the stories and experiences I have gained over the past year, and that is what I wish to share with you wonderful people. (With plenty of pictures, of course!)

 ¿Qué más?

My name is Trent Greschke, but my friends call me Trentles or Grits (There are stories behind the names, feel free to ask!). I’m 30 years old and plan on establishing my life here in Guatemala.

I am passionate about a lot of things, including: Music, Piano, Bass, Guitar, Drums, Photography, Writing, Helping People, Improving the Human Condition, Languages (I am currently learning Spanish and Portuguese, but know English and German), Meeting New People, Drawing, Travel, Bartending, and the list goes on.

To sum things up, I enjoy Life – Love – Happiness. Endless adventure is always waiting in this world, and the world is my playground!

If there is anything you would like to know, please feel free to ask! Thanks for stopping by and remember:

If you are worried about the future, don’t fret! It hasn’t happened yet.
