Spain & Portugal
(Madrid, Sevilla, Almeria, Barcelona, Azores Islands)
Spain was and is the country in which I lost and found myself - but it is also the country in which I understood and gave myself new meaning behind the word "traveller". Spain counts a divers mixicity of people from all over the world who have come in search of either better economic stability, or for a taste of the "spanish lifestyle" they read about in books. It seems that the concept of "time" and "home" are a lot in people's minds here - perhaps because Spain is the home of many, but also because time is lived differently and at a much slower pace. I met most people here in the various hostels I volunteered in, at El Campo de la Cebada, at parties, and in the streets.
