My travels…

 That is one of the tough decisions in your life, depending on the reason.

Families being broke apart for financial reasons, the crisis  affecting a big part of the humanity.

When that happen you never know what to expect! what will happen?how you will react? so many questions that will be in your mind, in your thoughts, in your sleep, in your own words even when you talking with someone. But everyone has different reasons. Maybe, because I had so many questions, that was the reason why I decided to embark in this journey. I wanted the answers. That could be a reason:)….

My self I decided to embark in that journey to found more about me and the world. 

I grow up by the beach where I would spend most of my time, thinking, dreaming and most important away from the society. How they would think, how they would talk to you, the behaviours, attitudes and the opinions. By the beach would be just me, the sky, the waves, the ocean and that interior peace. That ocean was the most safe friend that I ever founded, many tears we share, many words, many ideas, many happy and unhappy moments. Sometimes I would get mad because I couldn’t found my answer to my questions, but the silence was the reason why that place become the most important place for me. I share that place with some people that touch my heart, like I would share with my friends. nunomcs
