About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Live as if you were to die tomorrow and learn as if you were to live forever!

ABOUT ME

"And for just a moment I had reached the point of ecstasy that I always wanted to reach, which was the complete step across chronological time into timeless shadows, and wonderment in the bleakness of the mortal realm, and the sensation of death kicking at my heels to move on, with a phantom dogging its own heels..." (Jack Kerouac, On the road)

PHILOSOPHY

You should never take more than you give.

Life is an adventurous journey!

Life is like a bicycle - one has to keep moving to stay in balance!

"Happiness is only real when shared!" (Into the Wild)

A day without music is a lost day.

A good traveller has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving.

You can only regret things you haven't done.

"Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose." (Janis Joplin)

"...nothing so liberalizes a man and expands the kindly instincts that nature put in him as travel and contact with many kinds of people." (Mark Twain)

"Home is not where you live but where they understand you." (Christian Morgenstern)
