“Now I know a disease that these doctors can’t treat. You contract it the day you accept all you see is a mirror, and a mirror is all it can be.
A reflection of something we’re missing.
And language just happened. It was never planned. And it’s inadequate to describe where I am, in the room of my house where the light has never been. Waiting for this day to end, and these clocks keep unwinding. And completely ignore everything that we hate, or adore. Once the page of a calendar is turned, it’s no more. So tell me, then, what was it for?
Oh, tell me, what was it for?”—Bright Eyes - A Scale, A Mirror, And Those Indifferent Clocks
I started following you here recently and tonight I finally got a chance to really take a look at your blog. It's truly great. I love traveling too, but haven't made it out of the country yet. What got you started on going everywhere that you have?
I was born in Hong Kong, so the aspect of knowing how different every part of the world is has been embedded in me since a young age. For a while there I was working four jobs, when I decided I’d had enough of the city I used to live in, and fucked off to Europe solo. Since then the travel bug has never left. I never want that feeling of escapism, mystery and wonder to leave. Traveling opens up your mind, your soul, your heart. The people you meet, the places you experience, and the stories that unfold are what makes it all as magical as it is. Good luck with your travels. Keep that mind of yours open.
Your Blog is amazing, your words are so inspirational. The way you use your emotions to write is the best. I recently read your bucket list (which is a lot like mine) and loved it, also your unsent letters, if you don't mind me asking, what happened on the night you wrote about the person who caused you a lot of pain? I appologise if it's to personal to answer. :-)
I felt free again. A heavy weight was lifted off my shoulders. I could see with clarity again, my eyes were no longer wet with memories and that which I cannot change.
Your words are amazing! Please never stop. You bring me hope. I have shown your blog to a few friends and family members and it is so hard to getthemto turn away from that computer once they have began reading. Your words are mesmerising! Please never ever ever stop. Your blog, your words and your mind are amazing. Sometimes your posts are the thing that helps me get on with my day! <3 love, a very greatful follower :)
Aren’t you just a big ray of sunshine!! Isn’t it funny, just when we begin to give up on our passion, someone like you comes along. Don’t change. Thank you.
