Utah 2019

I’m so nervous. Lauren and Hannah, literal angels that the universe has placed in my airplane row on the flight to Salt Lake City, patient as ever, describe how it might go, what I can do. Lauren says “How exciting is it to meet the love of your life for the first time” and as I shake my head at her, I can see

No title just yet.

The move has literally uprooted me a little bit. This town often changes in my mind, it morphs from something restricting me to a safe haven that I can return to. At first, after having moved back, it was nice, being in a place that is so deeply familiar that I feel like I could navigate it blindfolded. But after a while the restlessness

Definition of home

What is home? I remember seeing my home as the house I lived in until I was three years old, one that is now blurred from the memories of the following years. That was home. As we moved to another town, into the house I have been living in ever since, I got confused. Was that now supposed to be home? But the confusion did not

A Birthday in Dublin

For my 18th birthday in March I decide to travel to Dublin again, with my whole family. Ireland was in 2009 the first country or more like a place where I thought about the future, so I think it is a good place to be when adulthood starts for me. We arrive on Friday night, the day before my birthday. We spend Saturday with

Back to Barranquilla

We only spend three days in Barranquilla before we leave for Cartagena. These days are filled with visiting the school that everyone of us who has lived here has been to, visiting the museo de carnaval – an exciting museum about the colombian traditions of carnaval – as well as driving through the city in a bus and going shopping in the buena vista – a

Cornwall pt. 1

My soul is itching to get on the road again. Living in a foreign country doesn’t seem to count as that, because life still catches up to you in a day to day way. I book my first solo trip since arriving here, to St. Agnes, Cornwall. The drive down is long and exhausting, but I enjoy singing my heart out and listening to
