“Belen, tell us about the feeling the sea evokes in you”
"It might sound cliche, but when I’m close to the sea I feel the happiest. Love that early daylight, the morning runs followed by a dip in the sea and of course friends dinners at a close by terrace. For me the sea comes hand in hand with that summer feeling and sunsets which are the best part of every single day regardless of the season. Could sit to watch the sunset, admire the change of colours, for me it’s a really magical moment."
“Sea smells like…”
"Summer it’s a mix of smells I would say, if I close my eyes I can smell the sea breeze, the salty water, I can also smell my dad’s paella and my mum’s gazpacho, and I love the smell of my moisturiser after a cold shower in the afternoon after spending the day at the beach, BEST FEELING EVER."
“Summer tastes like…”
"Summer fruits for sure. Everyone who knows me knows I am a fruit lover, but I just can't get enough especially during the season, you will always see me carrying a watermelon, peaches, cherries or some kind of fruit/ homemade smoothie, they refresh me so much. And I must add, it also smells like frozen strawberry daiquiri haha."
“The place I’m dreaming of returning to is…”
"My forever favorite Hawaii or Colombia, I can’t wait to be back, reunite with friends and also visit different islands."
