Hello. I am Maria. I come from Finland, but ended up in Barcelona. How did that happen?
A few years ago, an afternoon in August, I called a friend and asked her if we could talk. A couple of weeks earlier we had been on a trip together, a trip that had awakened an unbearable restlessness.
We set the table for a candle-lit evening together: candles, olives, jamón, a good spanish wine, manchego cheese… Isn’t that a coincidence. We listened to Jason Mraz and my friend listened to me.
I told her about my unbearable longing to go somewhere, see something new, learn something different. I wanted to decide all by MYSELF, experience everything by MYSELF, make it on my own. And come home when I was done.
4 years later I am still not done. But I am so much happier.
