Saying good-bye


Goodbyes are always difficult, especially when you have to say it to your family and close friends. But in life is better to focus on the good instead of the bad.

So focusing on the good:  I was so lucky to spend 8 months back in Ecuador. There were amazing months filled with family, friends, beautiful sunsets and great waves. I got to feel like I was living back in the country where I was born again; I got to see my friends, not just for a quick visit, but we actually did things together, like going away on weekends or going swimming to the pool. I got to live with my parents again, see them in their everyday lives, eat together and share lots of special moments.  So for all of that I’m thankful.

Thanks for all the good times, thanks to my family for understanding our desire to travel and adventure and for always being behind us, although they might be a bit fearful of where we are going or how we are travelling. Thank you to my friends for being always there for me, although it’s been already 9 years that we’ve lived apart from each other. Thank you for always making me feel welcome and part of your lives. Richard Bach says it better in this quote “Don’t be dismayed at goodbyes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetime, is certain for those who are friends”.

We’re certain we’ll see you again and in the meantime we have you in our hearts.
