This is not a book for those seeking profound words or thought-out phrases and dialogues. No, it is mainly a story, my story with its many sad, happy, humorous moments, from a short and specific part of my life. A life somehow different to most others, for I was born at a certain time in Chile, South America, where things happened, political events which uprooted me and made me go elsewhere in search of a safer and better life. Instead, I found adventure, friends, lovers and all kinds of interesting people and places. Life itself did not get any better or worse, but fuller, richer and more interesting.

I chose to write about those specific seven years of my life, for I believe that in that short period of time, I lived life in full, from riches to rags and again from rags to riches. From a cattle rancher's life in South America, to a top international male model's life in Europe, from a jet setter, to a prisoner in Carabanchel, Spain.

Travelling, living and working, in a never ending search for happiness. Always finding an excuse to keep on moving, the country, the work, the people. Different circumstances deciding for me, urging me on, to look elsewhere, in search of that perfect place, the right person, my longed for "Querencia." A home.
