I now live in Denver, Colorado which stands at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. I was raised in New Jersey, just across the river from Manhattan, New York, but I eventually moved to Denver after university because of my love for snowboarding and exploring the outdoors.
In my free time, I enjoy photography and traveling. You can see photos on instagram @jmtibay or flickr @judetibay
I love traveling to cold places, and so far I have been to New Zealand, Tasmania, Patagonia, Iceland, Greenland and Scandinavia.
When I'm not traveling, I love all types of food. My favorites are Ethiopian, Indian, Korean and Cuban food.
I am a simple and independent traveler that likes to meet local people and understand a day in their life. I do not/cannot drink alcohol and am not much of a party person.
