: wandering Spainards :

My ancestors, from my father's side, derive from the Southern areas of Spain. The story goes that my great-great-grandfather told his family that he was going out to buy cigars. He never returned.

He settled in Uruguay, South America. Yes, nomadism is in my blood.

  2. love it.

    It reminds me of the story of my three great (Irish) aunts who said they were going to church one Sunday, and went and boarded a boat to New Zealand, never to return. There are a number of these sorts of stories in my family. Nomadism is in my blood too.
