Belles rencontres vs. beaux paysages
Tu as raison @alexvizeo (lien en commentaire), on a trop tendance à privilégier les belles photos likables ou instagrammables. Mais les photos de belles rencontres sont aussi belles car nous sommes tous beaux 😍
Je poste régulièrement des photos de mes belles rencontres et parfois elles atteignent autant de 💟 que les photos du lever de soleil le plus badass, 😎 mais n’ont pas encore dépassé la photo de Chichen Itzá 😒
Va comprendre ... Un voyage c’est avant tout une rencontre, des gens, des moments qu’on vit avec eux, malgré la barrière de la langue et le choc culturel 😅
Voici mes plus belles rencontres des dernières semaines : Jenny 🏴 et Angelica 🇬🇹 💜 -
A tous ceux qui se demandent ce que je fais 🤗🤪
Cela fait un mois que je suis en mission de volontariat à l’hôtel La Casa Rosada, en plein cœur de Livingston, petit village du Guatemala, coincé entre les frontières bélizéenne et hondurienne, niché à la croisée des cultures garifuna et quetchi.
Et cette photo reflète bien mon état d’esprit 🥰
Savoring a quiet moment sitting in suspended animation with the sunlight streaming in through the window and glistening on vast river flowing and a skylined city with 8.5 million and counting . Savoring the moment and this photo.
Perhaps one day 20 something years from now, I'll find this photo, crinkled and yellowed in a tattered dusty box, flashes of nostalgia glancing at me with intuitive eyes. Passing other photos from generation to generation of family and friends, present and with me in spirit. I dont want to forget moments and experiences, made memories. I want to be the memory keeper.
Staring at this photo with wonder and curiosity , yet proud of my lines of wisdom, life experience, life lessons and knowledge learned. Some say as they get older they feel more and more invisible, I'd like inspire change in this view. Beauty comes in many different forms, we need to embrace our inner beauty and out the the core.
When I was fourteen, a friend of mine taught me that " Beauty is only skin deep, but character had real depth." Truth.
When I was a kid I went to the flea market almost every Sunday with my dad. We’d leave before sunrise so we could stop for an egg sandwich on a hard roll at a tiny deli in the middle of nowhere before we got to the giant dewy field that would soon be transformed into a wonderland of oddities and tchotchkes, and in our case, jewelry. I’d help him set up the tables and polish the silver and hang the feather earrings on the wooden racks he made and we’d spend the day selling them to leather clad biker chicks (that I was in awe of) and teenagers and everyone in between. At the end of the day, covered in a gentle film of dust, drowsy with sun, Dad would roll the windows down in our cream colored Subaru wagon and I’d put my feet up on the dash while he popped this cassette into the deck. No album has ever brought with it greater joy. -
This vinyl copy, it’s original cellophane mostly intact, arrived on my doorstep today from my brother-in-law and his partner @rivlarwriter and to say that I was touched would be a fairly dramatic understatement. ❤️ #solobutnotalone
Can’t beat this breakfast view! This is one of the spectacular locations @ski_souls will be going to this coming ski season. If you haven’t checked them out yet give them a follow to see what it’s all about! We’ve had the privilege of photographing for this fantastic ski travel company and highly recommend! 📸@fairview_bar#skisouls#solobutnotalone

Solo but not alone like another girl said. Whike travelling on my own I open up more to meet new people. Elvis first asked me to take photo of him and then we just started chatting, walked around Comino island talking about life, soaked in wonderful blue lagoon and keep in touch:) #solobutnotalone#solotravelling#cominoislandmalta

Six mois sur la route 🎒 🗺
Je me sens vivante 💁♀️ -
Ça vaut la peine de se lever aux aurores !
Malheureusement, après 40 minutes de marche démarrée à 5:00 et à 3600m, devant nous emmener sur le sommet d’Acatenango, nous avons décidé de redescendre au camp car le vent était trop fort et la montée dangereuse.
Mais nous ne regrettons rien. Surtout pas le spectacle du lever de soleil sur les autres volcans.
Je vous présente el volcán de Agua & el volcán Pataya à différents moments de la journée 😍 -
The idea of traveling alone terrified me until a few weeks ago. But what does the word alone mean anyway?
One can be in a crowded room with known faces and feel alone or
One can be seated at a crowded cafe alone, by choice.
I always dismissed any situation or opportunity that would mean I’d have to be alone, because being alone meant being lonely to me.
Until a few weeks ago.
When I travelled to Bali for a work assignment. The only person I was familiar with, was myself. I’d never had so much #MeTime in years. Initially I did dread it. But I took off with only excitement in my heart.
From strolling unfamiliar streets, without GPS (yes my battery died) to making small talk with strangers.
Feasting on food that I had never seen or heard of to getting lost and not even knowing that I was lost.
Maximising every second of the day and finding comfort in an empty hotel room. From unapologetic smiles at strangers to inquisitive strolls at midnight.
Going from a hesitant Hi to not wanting to bid goodbye. I did myself proud this time.
In retrospective, 2018 now feels like a year of prep to me. One that prepped me to be 100% comfortable with myself. Over those 5 days in Bali, I lived every little bit of the other side of being alone.
Today being alone means everything but loneliness to me.
These people 💖✨what a special few days celebrating Christmas 🎄🎅🏼 in Siargao with these wonderful, hilarious, crazy animals 😘 So lucky to have met you all and thank you all for making Christmas away from home a little more bearable ❤️💚 .
