A Friendship of Nine Nationalities

  • Francesca Moore

We crossed paths in Amsterdam, in a Hotel called Jansen. Arrivals from all over the globe, closely bonded together in a communal student-like kitchen. For months, we kept each other cheerful and continued to make long-lasting memories - exploring all that was possible under Covid 19 restriction. Once barriers opened and the sunlight beans gave hope of a ‘New Beginning’, we ventured to Portugal for a summer celebration. It was on a boat in Portugal that we realised we were nine friends of nine different nationalities.
