“Whatever your age is, if you have a latin mom and a passion for adventure, you will have to find a way to tell her that you are fine. This is my,” he says on Instagram.
The message has so far made its way right across Europe and Central America - it can be seen skydiving in Mexico, scuba-diving in the Caribbean, dancing on a street in Havana, eating pizza in Italy and even while Quinonez was being ‘“roughed up” by the Colombian army.
