You know nothing, absolutely nothing… Until you travel

I once met a man when I was 14. He was drunk on homemade spirits at a clandestine rooftop get together in a country where alcohol is and was illegal. Everyone else was chatting away and he was sitting close to the edge by himself enjoying the night enshrouded city view before us. He was quiet for the longest time and I stood nearby half in fear … Continue reading You know nothing, absolutely nothing… Until you travel

Pushing the boundaries of comfort zones

The beauty of long layovers and being stuck in an airport you get the time to think and ponder on life, where you have been and how far you’ve come.  Watching my fellow travelers pass me by I got to thinking about Comfort Zones… So often we live as we are taught, we follow what we are told about how we look, how to dress, … Continue reading Pushing the boundaries of comfort zones
