This is a love story in places.
In September 2017, I set off to travel the length of Africa with my sister. An ambitious trip, long delayed; it promised to be full of adventure and new situations. This journey took a sharp left turn when I fell in love with an Italian girl, just a few stops in.
A month after meeting her, I was leaving Africa on a plane to Europe. In the words of Robin Williams from Good Will Hunting, I had to go see about a girl.
This is that story, from start to finish.
How You Can Support
This was a performance; a piece of art. Now, same as a street performer or a subway musician, I’m holding out my hat, and saying: if you could support monetarily, that would be great. I’d appreciate you a whole lot.
This type of work takes a lot of time and effort to produce, and it earns no money whatsoever. $1 is nice. €5 would be better, £20 would be best. But pay what you can — and if that’s $0, I won’t be offended.
You can donate directly via PayPal or Venmo at the username: @thisisyouth.
Either of those actions goes a long way towards keeping me able to give you thoughtful projects like this.
