Home is not a place, it’s a story

In telling ours we find a place to belong.

Searching for the right words is a lifelong adventure. It begins the moment you choose to set foot on the storyteller’s path. Those who follow it, discover the magic of ordinary moments, the power of shared experience and the company of others chasing stories of their own.

Exploring life, one story at a time

We can all be Storytellers

Bedtime stories, mealtime conversations, even office chatter… The stories we share speak of who we are.

It doesn’t need to involve big complex narratives. It’s more about connexion, relatability and being heard.

Stories shape our understanding of the world and help us find our place in it.

So don’t be afraid to share a good story.

Because even though not all stories change the world, they help us feel less alone in it.

The magic of ordinary moments

Life needn’t always be thrilling to be memorable. The retelling of a conversation can be just as meaningful as the sharing of your craziest adventure.

Small details from a daily occurance can supply the magic if you take the time to notice and share.

What moment from today or this week could become your next story?

The power of shared experience

The best stories aren’t the most epic ones. It’s the ones we relate to we love the most.

Knowing someone else understands what we’ve been through, what we’re feeling.

We laugh together, cry together and share the complexities of the human experience.

“Everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.”

— Sylvia Plath

Every story needs a setting

There are places that capture your imagination and views that take your breath away. There are lands, languages and people that captivate your heart forever.

This is one such place.

Sevilla, Andalucía, Spain

This bright city in the south of the country has almost every stereotype you can think of: flamenco, tapas, a bull ring and sunshine, but there is so much more than this, if you know where to look.

Stories find you where you are

“I would sooner be a foreigner in Spain than in most countries. How easy it is to make friends in Spain!”

— George Orwell

You find stories where you go

“Travelling leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller”

— Ibn Battuta
