After spending some beautiful days and finally getting to know my goddaughter (uber-gorgeous) a few months ago, I took a train and left to Holland for a great time. No matter where and how long I had been travelling, the printout I talked about during my previous post, was most of the time with me. It is no identification or ticket, but a personal link to the XXIX. Summer Olympic Games in London – more information to come.
Talking about Summer Olympics reminds me of the time between the closing ceremony of the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens and the day a dream would come true in Summer 2008. Four years might seem like a long long period of time to prepare for my dream to be part of Summer Olympics, even as a spectator. Alas, it was not.

I felt like crying. The printout in my hands told me exactly what the screen was showing the past five minutes I had been staring at it. It was a dream come true, almost. Alas it had not come true, yet. Furthermore, at that moment I was not even sure how I would be able to handle it. The only thing I knew was, I had to do it. You know, there are times when a man has to do what a man has to do.
For all of you who don’t know me yet, my name is Andrés and I am running this blog. This is my story about a dream I have dared dreaming: Being part of the Summer Olympics once in my lifetime.
You might remember the line about travelling over one hundred countries and filling that passport of yours with stamps and visas which I had mentioned in my previous entry, but have you ever considered the possibility of doing that yourself? Could you imagine what it would mean in terms of cultural and life experiences to travel that many countries in a lifetime?

Well well. I have shared with you some of the stories that have contributed to create ol’ freaky me and you have had the possibility (regardless whether you did or not) to find out a bit about my life, as it is these days.
Now that you are aware of the influences of my past and the path I’m taking today there’s still one part I’ve kept hidden from you: my future. Don’t get me wrong. Neither do I believe in fortune telling nor too much in fate or destiny. I’d rather believe that we’re building our future with every step we make, with every decision we take instead of being puppets in a show: I do think we are all able to change our stars.
