    The idea of traveling normally leads us to a desired change, to pleasant moments, based on a desire or impulse. It is often a lifelong dream that we hope to realize someday. Nowadays this idea seems far from the thoughts of those who depart from Portugal in order to survive a period, some say they thought that emigration was a part of the past.

    Last year dozens of thousands of Portuguese left Portugal with the hope to find a solution that is denied to them by the country that apparently is not enough for everyone. This trip requires a separation, a break that involves a change of direction. The family is left behind, there are children whom you don’t see growing up, marriages that are cancelled or which happened in a hurry, abandoned projects, shattered expectations. Since the 60′s that so many people didn’t leave the country.

    For many it will be a trip without return.
