My Not So Secret Place



Going to different places gives me the opportunity to explore and discover hidden places. It gives me the privilege to be in the moment, to appreciate life and to wander more. If I had all the money back I’ve spent on things I didn’t care about, I would definitely be rich enough to travel for a year without working. Easily. Money for drinks at bars I didn’t want to go to. Money for gyms I talked myself into going to even though I strongly dislike gyms. Money on food and wine that were at best mediocre.

At the moment, I have the luxury of traveling alone, meaning I run into less instances where I feel like my true nature is compromised when it comes to how I choose to live. I’ve also discovered a handful of “secret places” that I won’t be revealing here in this blog post. I like my secret places to be peaceful and calm, even my friends didn’t know about these places. Coz these places are my quick escape, where I want to be alone and just appreciate life.



Travel forced me to grow up and I wouldn’t trade this journey for anything. Actually, I don’t plan on doing it in the long-run. People are always quick to judge those who pack up and leave home for the unexpected. Since coming back, I’ve been called “crazy”, “brave”, “inspiring” and “reckless” by my friends and family and these are all adjectives I’ve come to embrace. Even the last one. There’s nothing wrong with being “reckless” if it means I’m still growing.

So I say to you: Travel how you want to travel. And by extension, live how you want to live. Stop spending money in places where your heart isn’t and never let anyone tell you you’re “not doing it right.”

  1. I guess I'm on the contrary. I think I would have saved a lot now if I was not into travelling before. But I totally agree, travelling alone is fun and sort of peaceful at the same time. Makes you brave and wiser.

    P.S. The white shirt looks good on the denim. Classic!
