About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Finish the BRIC tour, before it finishes me

ABOUT ME

I like to travel, read books, go hiking/camping, and play football(soccer). Experience over things.. Quality over quantity, etc. I have been traveling pretty consistently since 2011. I hope to keep going for the indefinite future. I'm a vegetarian (usually).

PHILOSOPHY

"Be kind whenever possible, its always possible."

"Do not trouble yourself much to get new things, whether clothes or friends; Sell your clothes and keep your thoughts"

"The world is permeated with roses of happiness all the time, but none of us know it."

"Busyness serves as a kind of existential reassurance, a hedge against emptiness"

“If cameras didn’t exist, a lot of people wouldn’t be able to relive the lives they never lived.”

"The problem with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent full of doubt"

"And you are here for some twirls around the sun, then you'll join the dead for untold eons after. So why not have a friendly look around now, while you have the opportunity?"

"Your genuine action will explain itself, and will explain your other genuine actions. Your conformity explains nothing. "

"you have exactly one life to do everything you've ever wanted. Act accordingly."
