Today, I realised a dream I have had since I was three years old. Today, I saw snow for the first time.
Sounds crazy, right? Thing is, growing up in the Mediterranean, we never had any snow. Ever. We had hailstorms, yes, with hail so violent it hurt your head as it fell, but never snow. And despite my having travelled a fair amount in my life, I had never seen snow settle before today. I’ve seen snow fall a couple of times, but only a dusting, and never enough for me to grab a handful of it.
And then this morning, when I woke up and looked out of my window, everything was covered in a beautiful blanket of white snow. So what did I do? Why, I ventured outside, of course! In ill-advised footwear! To do some grocery shopping and take pictures of everything!
