Caminante, no hay camino.
Se hace camino al andar.
Antonio Machado, Campos de Castilla (1912)
Traveler, there is no road;
you make your own path as you walk.
A few months ago, a woman on a Spanish radio station spoke about her daughter’s wonderful experience as a member of the European Solidarity Corps. After some research online, I decided that I wanted to pursue membership as well.
And, here I am, In a different country, time zone and environment than my beloved country, communicating in a language in which I lack expertise.
But, that’s life: to face up to your fears, beat them; close chapters and write new ones. Blank pages need to be filled out and I believe I am doing just that.
My aventures start here. Would you like to share it with me?
