On Monday January 16, 2012 I took a flight at 11 am from Spain, Barcelona El Prat airport, arrived in JFK, New York on the same day in the afternoon for a vacation of 2 months. First time in New York, first time in the US. So excited to explore this crazy city, to surf in the US, even to reach to the Central America. Then, what? A job offer, out of the blue..Why not to experience the work & life in NYC? This was 3 years ago today and still here. Never took my return flight back to Barcelona..
New York was never a dream place for me, I was never aiming for an American dream either, I just found myself in the middle of it, embracing it, living it and making it real. If you give it a chance and know how to create your own opportunities, life is unpredictable and full of surprises. But at the end of the day it is your choice to follow the same, usual paths or take as much as you can out of the play called “life”.
Ah, also you need to have loved ones to crush on their couch 🙂 This post is dedicated to my beloved cousin and his amazing wife who let me crush on their couch forever! Thank you Sina & Olga. I love you guys!
