The boy who prepared my coffee

“A meaningful life is not being rich, being popular, being highly educated or being perfect…It is about being real, being humble, being able to share ourselves and touch the lives of others. It is only then that we could have a full, happy and contended life”

I have learnt.
I have been taught lessons that  they can’t ever be learnt in books.
I have travelled and I have watched, observed and seen.
 I have witnessed beauty with the shape of endless smiles and deep humbleness that will not allow me to go back to life as I knew it.

The people that inspire us

There are so many beautiful people in the world, try challenging yourself and search for beautiful souls

It takes years, experiences and endless conversations to realise that the journey is made, transformed and tailored by the people you crossed paths as you walk.
Some people will pass by you and leave nothing for you to reflect on; they will entertain you, make you laugh, cry or even suffer. They may even love you briefly and provide you with moments of pleasure but they will not be ones to inspire you.
And then, there are them.

PART 1: Be careful what you ask for. I asked for adventures and I got these!!

If you ever asked a backpacker why he/she travels, I’m sure you got a vast array of responses depending on the person; many will say that they travel to widen their horizons and many others will say because they want to see the world.

Both are indeed exceptional reasons and to be honest, if you get any of those answers, then I would say that enough said. However there is a common wish among all the backpackers in the world that remains unsaid; we travel the world to discover it but we want to discover it through adventures and who does not want them? Adventures they force you to live moments with  intensity and passion, no adventure remains untold.

Why should you climb a mountain instead of buying a dress?

"Is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves"

Don’t get me wrong, I love buying a dress or as a matter of fact, just pretty much anything as much as the next woman out there and for many years, I have done just that.

Though we travel the world only to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not (Ralph Waldo Emerson)

 Clearly I am not be the first person to write that the world is far too fascinating not to go and see it but there are unique things for each of us that happen only when we travel; experiences that we cannot relate to anything else, feelings that are far too intense and complicated to put them on paper, smells and flavours that stick in our memory like scars in the skin, the beauty of the landscape, the smile of innocence, the eyes that look at you and are as curious about you as you are about them; it is pure beauty, the beauty of the feelings that only the unknown mustn't let fear to stop you discovering the world because tomorrow when you feel to weak or too tired, you mustn't look back and wonder how beautiful the world is..
