relaxed chat/drink/smoke with some travelers


OK, I hate that. I just throw in some adjectives: open-minded, easy-going, curious, hospitable, travelitious, ambitious, organized (that's cultural I guess), stubborn.


disfruta la vida


good movies, good music, cooking, traveling, diving

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I don't know why but the first thing that comes to my mind was a wild camping trip more than 20 years ago: Brushing my teeth while looking at lake Geneva below, the Mt. Blanc in front and sparkling Geneva to the right thinking how lucky I am.
Seeing tree branches bend of the weight from zillions of butterflies in Mexican mountains and two days later looking into a humpback whale's eye wandering if the butterflies in those trees weighted more.
Seeing the sunset from Kitt Peak in Arizona or from Taquile Island in lake Titicaca and having difficulties to grasp the emptiness in front of me.
Diving for the first time realizing how unnatural it is to breath underwater.
Seeing animals until the horizon in the Serengeti unable to count them.
Ziplining soaking wet through a cloud above the Costa Rica rain forest not seeing either end of the zip line.
Standing in Notre Dame church at night only lit with candles feeling set back centuries.
