About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Our mission is to discover how to live our lives in a better way and find our place! ♥

ABOUT ME

Everything begun in june 2011 when Flor had the crazy idea: WHAT ABOUT LEAVING EVERYTHING AND GO TO EUROPE TO LIVE THERE FOR A WHOLE YEAR? First it was a crazy idea, impossible to do, no money at all, everything "to loose" (our "relative" good jobs, bla bla...)... but then it became real! We decided that if we would do it, we would do it right! ja ja!! So we took the full package! We got married (we have been toghether for a life! 12 years and counting... yes, a very exotic thing nowdays, but we are very normal! ja ja!), we made a modest weeding to celebrate with those we love and then we flew right to Italy, where, finally, everything begun to come true! We got married and two months later our trip began on the 17th of September 2012 and finished on September 2013!

Our objective is to find a better way to live our lives, we are from a big city, Buenos Aires, and we had been living a very stressfull life, until now!! We want to know people, see how they live and learn a lot of them!
By the time we have been in Italy, we decided one thing for sure: to have our own orchard or "orto" in italian, when we return home!

Now we are back at home, trying to understand something of this amazing year, but just trying!! Don´t push us! ha ha!! :)

PHILOSOPHY

"Life is not about finding yourself, is about creating yourself".
"Change is the only constant".
"No es aventurado esperarlo todo".
"El hombre es lo que hace con lo que hicieron de el" (J.P.Sartre)
"Don´t dream your life, live your dreams." (and that´s what we are doing right now!!je je!)
