It was pretty much one year ago that I moved to Barcelona from Dubai, where I also spent a year of my life or so. The transfer back to Europe must have been the best choice I've ever made in my entire life. I exchanged the soulless, artificial lifestyle back to European culture and soul. What a drastic difference - to the better - it made for my life, heart and soul.
Started the summer of 2009 in Barcelona with a trip to Ibiza. Good friends. Good vibes.
Followed by Sonar parties and friends in town.
Was in London for shopping. Expensive shopping was a major part of my everyday happiness those days. Diamonds and pearls. Golden watches, first class flights to luxurious resorts and 2000$ shoes. I guess it wasn't very easy (nor cheap) to satisfy me in this period of my life (at least not if you were a man).
...fell in love with the nature..
And spent some beautiful nights on an astonishing roof terrace in Paris.
I also went home to Sweden to see my old friends.
And the yearly secret island party outside of Gothenburg.
My dear friend Alex visited me in Barcelona a couple of times.
When I suddenly met the man of my dreams. (I mean seriously. Is he really for real, I ask myself at times. How can a man be so fucking beautiful, genuine, normal, intelligent, caring, honest, straight forward, ambitious, down to earth, spiritual, strong, insane, inspiring and blessed with such sex appeal - all at the same time? Jackpot.)
We went to Milan to celebrate life and that we finally found each other.
Came back and had a crazy, wonderful new year eve's celebration with friends.
Would say that's probably one of the best things I ever done. Back to the basics. Steady on the ground. Away from the materialistic world I both loved and hated. Obviously, I do miss my huge walk in closet at times and all the convenience you might have when living spaciously, but the boat life gives me so much more harmony and peace that it wins in the long run. Well thank God for that as we've planned to stay on it for at least two long years. I now look forward to fill the upcoming year with even more traveling and crazy experiences and you're all very welcome to follow the journey!
