Viva La Dolce Vita

"Viva La Dolce Vita."

I'd much rather be here, with the sweet silence.
A state of complete serenity.
With my own steady heartbeat and thoughts.
Nil disturbance, everything I desire already lies within me.

Questa è la dolce vita.
No sudden outburst of redundant emotions, volatile temper.
A mind free of irrelevant opinions, vehemence, and insecurity.
Unlimited and unscrutinized.

To live my life both under the sun and into the night.
Dance through the rain, drink up the bittersweetness of life.
Having my own will yet going with the flow.
Embrace the warmth of the day, welcome the dusky evenings.
Touched by the glorious birth of mother earth.
Graciously accept that all thing must come to end.

Anıtkabir, Ankara




I often reminisce over my times spent traveling. whether it being me mindlessly flipping through countless photographs and videos I took while on the road or the sheer memory of my body sensing the vibrations of the foreign land which I stand upon. The cloudless sky of Ankara on an early March morning and the Turkish people's patriotism and love for their country I felt when visiting the Ataturk Mausoleum. The emerald water of the Bosphorus Strait that is full of jellyfish and other quirky marine creatures, or the unmistakably iconic view of Hagia Sophia in Istanbul.







Those memories are so beautifully personal to me that no words could ever their justice and accurately describe the emotions that come up when I look back on my travels. A life beyond language barriers, beyond country borders and beyond rules and stipulations is a life beyond limits and imaginations, it is a life I yearn to live, I aspire to pursue. Creating my own path and telling stories as I explore...

  28. Seems like you really had a lot of fun during your visit to Pattaya. I spent 5 days in Bangkok and the one day I went to Pattaya I only went to Coral Island because reast of the places were filled with families.

  30. I feel like being transported into that era, the editing is remarkable. Love the coconut bowl at the end of it. And yes, I like the 60's, 70's and 80's music. I feel like an old soul too.
