There are times when I’m really on top of life. Not that I have everything together, just that I’m happy, content, satisfied with where I am, what I’m doing, who I’m surrounded by and most importantly, me. Like I’m harnessing the power of life, it’s a rush but it’s also peace. It’s like I’m riding […]
16.000km and 365 days
“When people ask me whether you’re my boyfriend, I can’t say yes, because that would be a lie, but when I say no, it doesn’t feel like I’m telling the truth either.” – me, May 5th 2016 Are anniversaries a big deal to you? They’re a big deal to me right now. Yesterday marked Tod’s […]
16.000km full circle
It’s been roughly a year since I asked Tod whether he would like to travel with me. It’s been roughly a year since we began talking everyday. It’s been roughly a year since we started counting down the eight months we had to wait until we could meet again. I’m thinking about this now, in […]
16.000 km is not a distance
“Each time we say “IRL,” “face-to-face,” or “in person” to mean connection without screens, we frame what is “real” or who is a person in terms of their geographic proximity rather than other aspects of closeness — variables like attention, empathy, affect, erotics, all of which can be experienced at a distance. We should not […]
Sometimes I get ideas and usually they range from moderately crazy to impossible from the get-go. When you have an idea like that, no matter which kind, because it comes to you while riding your bike or desperately trying to sleep, you need to do everything in your might to make it possible. So when […]
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 […]
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. […]
It’s the year 2016, and I am not going to get very poetic about what that means, although there are quite a few cool movies coming out this year. No, the interesting thing about 2016 is that it’s three years away from 2013. Between those years a lot of change has taken place in my […]
Where have I been?
Photo Credit to Lena S. That is a good question indeed. It has been too long since I last visited this place. Honestly, after Thailand nothing felt worth sharing or writing about. It is silly to let the greatness of one event take away from the good of ordinary things. I shouldn’t have let that […]
Food, glorious food.
At the moment I am in a total food crave. Why? Well, it is very possible I would sit on my bed browsing mouth watering Indian recipes either way, but I am currently on a diet. It’s a little to now carb and no sugar diet and it fluctuates between making me feel amazing and close […]
