How do Dark Fairy adventures come into this world. Out of a need for change and excitement, as it creates possibilities for something different. Something potentially better. After a decade of London life, an experience at the African Med, entering the path of graduate life an itch was building up. I might carry the City of Cities in my heart, but that doesn´t necessarily mean that she carries me in hers. After too much whining about the weather, somehow failing to apply my fabulous skills in a lucrative employment engagement and a general there´s- gotta-be-something-better-than-this feeling, it kind of hit me. And that hit resulted in a single airfare to a new adventure. One in which I can use my language geekiness in funky settings earning me decent money too. An adventure in which I can indulge in a Mediterranean lifestyle without having to adjust my sense of fashion*. An adventure taking me to a place where I can walk to work passing along a water front with stunning views and luxurious yachts. An adventure that got me infatuated by a pirate with a cute accent, a brain like Einstein, stories like Sheherazade and highly advanced kissing skills, which make me come back for more. An adventure to a place where all nationalities mix with locals of all walks of life. An adventure that seamlessly fits with my current wishes, dreams and desires.
I made a Malta Move. I still feel brand new. My London cool & savviness is of no use at this end of the Med as I don´t know my way around and my local social network has the size of a Brixtonian house share. Yet, It´s a new day of a new life. The sun is out and guess what, it sure feels good.
