I need the sea nearby to be happy.
Of course, I was able to live many years far away from it, but I always had the feeling to miss something. I love mountains too with their lakes, but if the sea is not there, they lose a little bit of their attraction for me.
I enjoy the typical salty smell and taste of the sea, the rhythm of the waves, the shells and starfish on the beach, and the fishing boats, especially the traditional jábegas of Phoenician origin. I enjoy looking at the sea everyday, day and night. It offers me peace - and room for dreams.
