I always talk about where I travel or where I am or what I do in a specific moment in time. But never about what traveling means to me.
“Travel” is the answer to most of the questions you can ask me.
What makes me happy? Traveling
What I would always do? Travel
What I miss the most? Traveling
Which is the one thing I would never give up? Traveling
And so on and so forth. Some say cooking. Well, I know for a fact I am a disaster, the only questions that I could reply to with “cooking” is “what you never see yourself doing?”
So back to traveling. It’s actually because of the travels I’ve done that I am the person you see today. And thanks to traveling I realized what I want to do, what makes me happy, whom I wanna be surrounded with and how I wanna live my life. Ok I still envy my friends Eduardo and Andrea cause in Buenos Aires it’s always hot when I am there. Now I am currently writing this article from -1 degrees Celsius…. But I still love them… they spoil me with dulce de leche when I visit them so I can’t resist that.
I haven’t yet visited my number one on the travel list, which is Rio, Brazil. So now you know what you have to do in order to surprise me. Joking. I do wanna visit it. But thruth be told, I realized what makes a travel perfect is actually the people you are surrounded by. Besides the fact that each place is unique, it offers me a second home. And a third one and so on. You may think it’s a cliché when I say I live out of a suitcase. But I do. And that is the best feeling ever. Not belonging to one place. Being able to find home thousands of miles away.
Traveling brings out the best in me. Freezing in London or having Margaritas in Punta Del Este? Getting lost in Dubai and then have an espresso in Milan? Or a glass of wine on Champs Elysees?
That is what I signed up for. That is what keeps that big smile on my face.
I was never scared of giving up modeling. I was scared of not traveling. So scared I didn’t even realize I could travel even more.
So that is what makes me happy. Why I told you all this? Cause I want to know what makes you happy. What is that one thing that makes you wanna jump out of bed and not hit snooze on your alarm? The one thing you don’t need coffee in order to face it? And the one thing that brings out the best in you?
