  • July, 2011. I travelled alone to Stockholm trying to find some peace of mind.
    At that point of my life, I was feeling stressed, lost, sad, depressed, void and I had a broken heart.
    After a few days wandering the city, just the day before I was flying back to Spain, I went onboard a boat for a three hours cruise.
    That morning, on that ship, feeling the cool morning breeze on my face, with a cup of tea on my hands, looking at the islands, the houses, the trees and the sea, it just happened. I realized and it took me by surprise.
    I looked around and I thought: "Right now, this very moment, I don't need anything else and I don't want to be in another place. I am just happy to be alive and to be here. I am free".
    The peace of mind that I needed so badly, came to me and I felt it.
    To me, happiness is made of beautiful little moments like that.
