I often find myself feeling lonely when I move somewhere new. The feeling of not having your close friends around you, or your friends that you’ve met while traveling, can be a bit disheartening. The older I get, the more I long to have stable relationships with people who lives in the same place as me. But then I got a message today from someone that’s literally oceans away from me ( ) and from my beloved friends in Sweden, Israel, Romania, Brazil, Germany, Sri Lanka, etc... and realized how connected I feel to them, even if we are so far apart from each other. Just a simple text from someone you hold dear can make your day so much better. I realized: I’m not lonely at all! and my adventures in Lisbon with my newfound friends will also always be with me, thanks to technology. Crazy how a phone can connect you to so many people!
