Spending nearly a month on Paros has been an unforgettable time in my life. I came on this trip not only for the experience of a lifetime but also for an enlightening, soul-searching endeavor. I don’t know what it is, but there is something about Paros that is just going to stick with me. All the memories I’ve made, the people I’ve met, the new friendships I’ve created, and the idea that I am making films on the opposite side of the world and helping people to tell their stories have all just coagulated into this thought that I am on the right path in my life, both career-wise and personally.
There are a lot of things I love about Paros, and I could probably write a book describing all of them, but the beautiful sunshine, I think, might top the list. Feeling the warmth from the sun and the light ocean breeze combines into this absolute feeling of bliss, and I feel like it could be my Xanadu. Paros is a place I will once again visit someday, whether it be on my own, with a friend, or with a lover, I know in my heart I will be back here to bask in the sunshine.
