Diving & Komodo

This photo and underwater photos by Laura F. When I travel I divide my journey into legs in my head. They usually relate to time spent in a certain place or with a certain person. This one I spent on the edge of Komodo National Park in a little resort only accessible by boat. Had […]

Lembongan’s Unlikely Events

Sorry about the terrible layout and possible typos, writing this on the iPad. Asia. It’s the warm air that engulfed me upon stepping outside of the airport and that unmistakable smell whcih tell me I’ve returned.

16.000 km is mildly problematic

When people hear ‘our’ story they sometimes spin a fairytale out of it. “You’ve only met for one day and are together now?

Once Upon a Time… literally

… and figuratively as well. They both go hand in hand, and as one might guess it’s about the prose section on this blog. Originally I had not intended to include it for various reasons, but then again for various reasons, now I feel that I should. I used to write a lot when I was younger […]

Folded

Sheets of paper, sheets of linen. Sheets of comfort, calm, of passion, of fear. Who are you, why are you here? When have you grown? This is my home. Leave the sheets. Stay in the creases. I dont care for your despair. I am not the one who pleases. I belong here, make you see. […]

Travelfriends

Traveling might be my favorite thing to do, and it is for many people. The reasons for it are numerous: the sights, the tastes, the adventure, the variety, the personal growth and the people you meet – those unshowered, harem pants hippie back packers who are determined to give you the time of your life.
