In December 1997, I lived one of those life changing moment when a decision you take will certainly change (un peu, beaucoup, passionément) your life. Packed my bag and my hopes, landed in London Heathrow and took a coach to Oxford.

Then came along this song and it hit me. It became the soundtrack of this trip that taught me so much. Whenever I listen to it, I feel like my old 20 years self.
Hopes and dreams, fears and excitement fill me in.
