Driving through the province of Cantabria in Spain, you'll know why they call it Cantabria Verde (Green Cantabria). Even though most of my drives have been in fall/winter, the green landscape doesn't disappoint.

Who wouldn't want to wake up in the morning to a view like this? Well, its the view that most people who live in Potes see everyday. Potes is a small village in the region of Cantabria, and is on one of the prettiest. The village is in the centre of the historic Liébana region, an area that is surrounded by spectacular mountains, with running streams and rivers. Its old quarter has the Property of Cultural Interest designation. Its the first stop on our road trip through Spain, in the series SN2S 12/7Read More

In college, my friend and I used to always talk about success and what defines it - was it money, or the accumulation of assets, or power - we had a lot of theories, but eventually it came down to freedom. Freedom to not have to work, or not have to adhere to any set schedule or routine. After we started working fulltime jobs, this philosophy only got more reaffirmed in our heads. So then the theory was solidified - in very simplistic/laymans/exact terms, success for us is defined as the freedom to go for a long drive in a nice car on a tuesday afternoon at 2pm, and have a beer - any tuesday. Silly? Maybe. Awesome? Absolutely.
So I immediately thought about this when I saw this scene set up for me. I couldn't have set it up better. It was tuesday, around 2pm-ish, and they were sitting there - chilling - and having a beer. Ok, so maybe there were tourists like me, but maybe not. They looked way too familiar to be tourists, but anyway - my college concept was realized in front of me. All I have to do now is to strive for it :)
