1. Live in England

Ok, so.. I like to read, like A LOT. When I was 7, a cold day of may, my grandpa died. One of the things he left us, his granchildren (we're 11 cousins) were his beloved 129 books. I had never have a real novel in my hands, I was a child after all. Looking at all those books pilled in little hills, I was blowed away but I didn't know which one to chose, I had never actually read a real book, other than the typical children stories. Than, a book catched my atention, it had a big wardrobe on the cover, with 4 kids around it. And, between all the letter I couldn't read (I had myopia and had no idea), I could see the word "Narnia".

And that's kind of how it started. My love for England. The same year I discovered, no by choise but a big coincidence, J.K. Rowling and The Beatles. And little by little, I was falling more in love with the country where all this magic seemed to come from.

Have you ever dreamed about something for so much time, with so much strength, that you were afraid to actually live it? That's kind of what it happens to me. My whole life, one of my biggest dreams has been knowing England, but I don't want just to go there in some holiday. I'm afraid I would be to blown away by the known places, the tourist, the lights. I'm applying to go studying abroad there next year. I want to be there, get to know its people, get to know its not-so-well-known places. I want to drink coffee in some shop, while it's raining outside. I want to live everything there. So I can live up my dream or end up disappointed.

But at least, I'll have my answer. I'll have one more experience in my life.

I don't even dream of a big city. But I live in Chile's north. It never rains. I once went to Brazil and I could swear the sky was different somehow. I want to see how's there...
