Dogs and the sea

In the future, I want to “be independent“.


We asked, you answered.

How would you describe yourself?

32 years old, white, female, I like the sea, I do sports activities in the mountains, born in Tenerife, I am a graphic designer.

Imagine you are 72, 80 or even 99 years old: How and with whom do you live together?

Alone with my dogs living quietly

Who are the most important people in your life and how do you spend time with them?

My friends and I go to the beach and take my time with them. I draw in the afternoons

What is your sex and love life like in the future?


How do you manage to stay mentally and physically fit?

Going to the sea

How do you afford everyday life in the future?

With a pension and savings

In the future, what do you get up for in the morning?

Exercising and staying active

If you had to tell a young friend about all the things you’ve done right while ageing and would thus recommend to them… What would they be?

Be calm and at peace doing what you like without depending on anyone.
