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.
