I suppose that after 8 years of blogging life, many still have not realized that the one who writes behind these lines is still considered purely emotional, far from any rationality, absolute believer that any monument, destination or place is only endowed with meaning when that moment is reached when time stops and whose I remember not keeping the memory, but purely the heart (the one that never forgets)
It's 2.35 in the morning, and my eyes are wide. The Jet Lag takes its toll, but also the post-trip shock. I still remember that precious one sunset in Puerto Vallarta, the sound of the burner that warmed the air in the balloon that made us blow on San Miguel de Allendeor the adrenaline of the Quads or the beautiful colors of the backdrop of the houses of Guanajuato. But above all of them, I remember the night of DAY 16, when perhaps due to the misunderstanding of my travel companions, I just watched his work almost for the last time, finally with my computer turned off, and a cold Crown in my hands (or 2 or 3).
I strongly believe in the need transmit a destination, but I believe much more in the ability that bloggers have to get it making the reader feel part of the moment, wanting to place himself in that photo of that viewpoint whose group selfie rauda emotions, or view of "bird", where a GoPro with 8 bloggers with some degree of madness, loss of "key", take photos on a basket floating in a soap bubble. I also believe that professionalism is not at odds with dozens of different profiles in this world, although many are determined to "monitor" and decide the "journalistic" parameters in which we have to move. And I think the community behind us already supports it.
It is also true that the day of return of a trip (already in A Coruña), with more than 12 hours of flight, an almost lost scale, and some dark circles up to the chin, has only one thing to tell ... the big hug in which we merged for a farewell, which I almost appreciated was fleeting, as it was the day before with two canaries who settle at this time in their hotel collecting their own "little piece" back to the world while preparing new destinations.
The power of emotion ...
Respect to the one who uses the other part of the mass that carries our head, the left hemisphere, the rational brain, that of logic, that of numbers, that of analysis and that of abstraction to transmit or draw conclusions from any aspect of life. In fact I consider it necessary for objectivity. He will love to extract data from this first campaign table ...
Nevertheless it's empathy, the ability to resonate one's emotions in others or vice versa, which gives us that ability to feel with the rest and even through these lines with the reader. That same one that has achieved that in a demanding blogtrip a perfect fit between a group of people of different profiles whose lace has made my hair stand on end.
Javi is a hyperactive creator. That kind of person who will always appear in your photos because while you are preparing the camera he has already seen all the perspectives. Pusher, always positive, has been a true engine of the group in the moments of most fatigue ... and also an artist of the visual.
Mauxi is the eternal missing. Group photo? Where is Mauxi? ... although we must admit that for a good cause, and that is where one sees, mmm, a source ?, she already has an exciting task of documentation prepared for the return on some aspect of it than the rest we have not seen. I am looking forward to reading your "turquoiseness"
With Adri I've been working side by side for several months, and yet there is something that has surprised me, and that is working capacity hooking day after day without sleep for being able to meet their goals, and I would dare to say dreams. Where some put talk, he puts a lot of reality and a path of inspiration
The young lady Eider is an earthquake and my personal bet for the most recent blogs. He has a long way to go but has a very different approach that gives fresh air to any travel group. And the best, I think I had not seen someone so prepared for a long time, with careers and how many languages? I think I got lost in English, French, German, Chinese?
My dear "gaveaways", Marcos and Yoli, are those kind of people who take love after seeing them. They are going around the world more "original" (do we leave it there?) That I have seen so far, but above all, they are that pair of people who empathize and generate good weather wherever they go, always willing to take you out A smile until the most complicated days ... and today a smile is the most valuable thing that people have.
Vero possibly has been my great discovery. It is in the terminal phase but recoverable (as a half group, haha), being one of the most productive people I have seen in time. He is able to solve problems even dreaming, and is always thinking about how to optimize anything that comes before him. I just hope, and so she knows, that within that onion of rationality, leave room at least for rum (just kidding).
To all of them and to all who read us throughout these years, I am going to leave you a small video for you to see when you are discouraged or just want to remember everything behind the snapshots we leave in newspapers like this. And is that Chavetas was born for that, to be able to read with 70 years sitting on a sofa in front of a fireplace on a cold winter afternoon, and remember a life of travel.
Dozens or even hundreds of people pass by us every day, many of which are worth discovering. However, we are becoming less aware of our surroundings. Look, observe, interact ... and that behind those blogs we love, above SEO, plugins and servers, there is a much more important thing to convey ... THE POWER OF EMOTION! !! Forever #AllMexicoTrip !!
