  1. Hello,

    I am Marina, a erasmus friend of Daniel from Spain.

    This might be a bit late, but I have just been in Moher Cliffs and I have been told how much Daniel loved this place.

    I just wanted to tell Daniels’ family how special his son was (even if they are already more than sure about that).

    Daniel made our experience in Bordeaux better than what it would have been without him for sure. I am sure that his past experiences made him enjoy every little moment more that the rest of us, and even if we did not know about his past, he helped us see what a special and amazing moment we were living everyday.

    I will always remember him with a big smile and with a polite and friendly attitude towarda everyone (and probably with a beer cheering).

    He for sure loved his family more than anything. I remember him buying you all christmas presents and talking about what each of you would like most. He was just the sweetest.

    Even if it is probably the hardest thing to understand in life, I hope that religion has helped you through this process.

    Lots of love
