Oh darling, let’s run wild together

A few years ago I was living in Kenya. Then I moved to Spain, followed by Mexico and some travel writing adventures after that as I started backpacking. Five months ago I left Italy for Greece to continue with my current job as a rep. I have been moving my strong long legs continuously around this globe over the last 9 years, but I never thought I would actually find someone to run with.

It feels good to be lost in the right direction.”

Then some months ago I met you – an extremely loveable Swedish viking. It happened on a summer night that we could not stop looking into each other’s eyes and the curiosity kept on hitting me. I wanted to get to know you, see where you had been to and what your passion is, but more importantly, I wanted to get to know your way of thinking. It all intrigued me and our strong attraction made us fall in love. I even tried to stop it in the beginning, because I thought I might not be able to do this. Oh foolish me… but luckily I soon realized what had actually happened. In front of me stood one person who’s adorable, loving, funny, smart, caring… and handsome. You even love to travel. I hit my Jackpot!

I did realize that it was likely to be impossible for me to deal with the fact that you were using Snuz; some tobacco thing from Sweden people use instead of cigarettes. The words I used were pretty much “Me or the Snuz baby!”, and that, very fortunately, was a very easy choice. Pfew!

I’m in love. Who would’ve thought.”

It’s amazing how life can change in such a short time. However, I guess you know how it goes. You try to make some plans for the future, think of some plan B’s and C’s, just in case A brakes a promise, and you finally end up getting an entirely new alphabet because someone interrupts the previous plans. Now we’re sharing a new alphabet. No, not a Greek one. Not a Dutch nor a Swedish one. We’ll have an international one and it feels pretty damn good.

Ever since I left my home country I felt at home at any other place I went to. I enjoy getting to know more cultures by talking to strangers and hearing their philosophy about life. Speaking with gestures when you can not find a shared language, finding places only the locals go to and learn about their customs and values. Hanging out with local people makes me happy. The experience of every new place is a step out of your comfort zone where I like to wander around until it feels like a second home.
