I live in a country that is composed of more than 7,100 islands. Pristine waters, white sands beaches, beautiful sunsets and the warm embrace of the sun were part of my normal life. Aside from the beauty of its beaches, the sea fed us. Local fishermen deliver fresh seafood to our locality. Life was never complicated.

At the age of 18, I left home and went to the city. There I had a different life. I enjoyed it more than the years I stayed at home. I met new friends who introduced me to a life I never thought I would experience. I got hooked on the internet and social media. For years I didn’t look back.

After more than 10 years of stress at work, complicated relationships, traffic, and partying, the hangover of my city life got me. I booked a flight and decided to relive my past.

The beach, the pristine waters of the sea and the warm embrace of the sun welcomed me like a parent waiting for her child. I realized that no matter how far I go, this place will always be where I want to be… home.
