Bilbon Bizkaia Magazine Nº1 (spring 2022)
The key to happiness
“Look at your partner with the eyes of a lover and at your city with the eyes of a traveller; that is the secret of happiness”. We share this maxim coined in 1867 by Irish philosopher Joseph Quincejam. A hopeless romantic traveller and an boundless lover.
That is our mission: to bring happiness to the people who visit Bilbao and Biscay. To discover what is not always obvious in this marvellous land inhabited by charming people. We will give a voice to many of these, so that their words will reveal their secrets: places, landscapes, taverns, products, concert halls, exhibition halls, waves…
We are certain that, this way, we will ensure those of us living here will also contemplate our own streets and mountains with the eyes of a traveller.
If we reach our goal, many people will stay a little longer than they planned beforehand. Maybe an hour. Maybe half a day. Maybe a night. They will surely be happier. Those who provide services to them as well.
We would like to highlight that those of us who have boarded on bilbON are grateful for the trusting companies and institutions for their engagement with this project as well as their confidence in the future of Bilbao and Bizkaia, and in Joseph Quincejam’s key to happiness.
