Welcome to Special Stories!
This website is about wonderful places and, first of all, about simple, usual people that truly followed their dream. Who built it piece by piece. Who put their whole soul and energy to make it come true, in their native countries or anywhere else in the world. Who have something to say. People who you can identify with. Who can inspire you. Those people whose stories can make you think about your life. And, if you realize that something is wrong, to do something about it, to change it.
