So, finally I'm able to tell you all about the big change that happened in the last few days. I'm now in London. And why is this so different from any other trip I did before? Because this time it means that I am changing Portugal for the United Kingdom as my "address". I'm now another Portuguese migrant trying to have a better life than was possible back there.
I just arrived yesterday and have been taking care of all the bureaucracies that my change imply. It's no easy but at least I have a lot of support from my family - in Portugal and here - and from my friends. So, I'm optimistic about the days to come.
And for this blog I guess it means that some of posts will be a lot about London and the experience here, but let's face it it will be interesting and more diversified, after all London is a world!
So, keep reading and I'll be posting!

There's a place in Sintra that the best scones you can eat. But the Saudade Cafe is much more than scones. It's magic in the middle of the hills. It's a flavor of Portugal in that familiar place, an environment that has history in it and where you can always spend a great time.

When parents aren't feeling well or are even sick, it's time for the descendants to take control of the situation and impersonate their role as the ones who know what it's needed to do, especially when it concerns going to the doctor. At least with my parents that's a hard thing to do and also for them to agree that they really aren't ok. And they can be more stubborn than me...

It's never easy to deal with one. But the first one is the worst. The most horrible pain that we can possible think of. We believe we'll never go through it. We stop believing in love. We can't see a future with someone else. We have the solid idea that we are better alone than having the slight possibility to feel that pain again. And we truely believe that that is true. Till our heart heals. And we are ready to feel it all over again. But until that day comes, no matter what everyone says we don't care. We don't see the open door. Not even a window... And what to say when that first heart break happens in your 30's?
That was the picture I saw today. It was like seing my own first heart break. I knew that no matter what I said it wouldn't make a difference. And it didn't. My friend kept saying that he's better alone. That he doesn't want to find anyone else. Ever. It's sad. But the sadest thing is that it was the first time he liked someone and that girl felt the same about him. And he was happy. And know I see that for him it has been more difficult to deal with it because only happened now for the first time. With no backgrounds, no similar experiences. And if it's hard for younger people to go through that kind of experience, I see that for older people it's even harder.
Could another love be the answer? Even him being so apart from people now?

These past few months I was working close with a small group of ladies who ended up to taught me a lot and made me see Life from a different side. The most important lesson: Life goes so fast that we shouldn't loose time with people who don't deserve or with fear of doing something we know we want. Life is to be lived and to be enjoyed at it most!
Today we said goodbye. It wasn't easy but at this point I know nothing is forever and every change is a way to go forward and to achieve more to keep growing inside. I'll never forget my beautiful ladies... Now it's time to prepare my next adventure. More news about it in a couple of weeks. Keep reading!
