Victimized by Thoughts: A Getaway from London

Feeling victimized by the thoughts of society, where even your mere existence is subject to opinions of others — including your own, you decide it’s time for a getaway from London. A Spanish sea-town, Begur, where nobody knows you, should work for the best. While their official language is Spanish, you are confident some people must speak English over there, you decide on their behalf — for your travel care-free. Preparing for your first solo trip abroad, you dub yourself lucky in a patriarchal world — as everyone around you appreciates a woman travelling on her own.
