VII/ All I Can

“When you add in a song track and you put on that song in the background when you are reading, it makes you think. I just applied for a traineeship to work at the European Commission, I really hope they select me so I can start working there.
But then I read your blog and I’m like: screw it. SCREW IT ALL. I’m selling everything and I’m using all my money to get myself a ticket to Latin America and just start travelling. Because I want to and because I feel I should. Because I can.”

This one is just for you bro!!

Go you dude, ‘sail away’..! Couldn’t give you any better tip my friend!!
“I always wonder why birds choose to stay in the same place when they can fly anywhere on the earth, then I ask myself the same question.” Remember?? I’m pretty sure that you’re the one who made me discover that saying.

“They didn’t know it was impossible, so they did it.” Mark Twain.
And as I start surprising myself talking about Europe when I mean home, I nevertheless have learned something lately: “Real freedom isn’t easy to handle”.
We’re all constantly fighting for being freer, having more spare time and having no one to tell us what to do. But once one reaches the ultimate freedom, then one finds oneself in an awkward position, not being prepared to face such change…
Whether we like it or not we’re all pretty much used to follow rules and customs, things that are surprisingly not that easy to get rid of in the end.

Whenever you feel down, homesick or whatever, always keep in mind that “tomorrow is another day”, just go to bed and “everything will be better tomorrow”.
There will always be new encounters on your way. Keep on walking, trust the future. Life’s definitely full of surprises if your heart is open enough to seize them.
“If you make friends with yourself you will never be alone”. This all make sense now my dear Maxwell Maltz.
“The past is dead. And now I see nothing really that proves me that it actually happened” told me a travel mate once,
Just answered : ‘No one hates you more than your reflexions.’
To be meditated.

“And I shambled after as usual as I’ve been doing all my life after people that interest me, because the only people that interest me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones that never yawn or say a commonplace thing but burn, burn, burn like roman candles across the night.” On The Road.

Happiness is to know how to surround yourself.
“It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” Shoot-out to Oli, that dude from London I met once in Melbourne, currently traveling the world year after year.
He told me that one story of a friend of his who went abroad for a year studying or so, and who came back home afterwards, and took over his exact same life he was leading before to leave.
“Fuck me man, have you not learnt anything?!?” Sir Oli.

To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.
And I’m telling you my friends, life is definitely so much more intense when you’re abroad;
When buying a one-way flight ticket rhymes with pressing the fast forward button.

Hold on your dreams, no matter what.
“Entropy. This is why you can’t get the toothpaste back in the tube.” R.

And I leave you there, right after one of the most meaningful quote ever, with still a thank gift for reading, my brand-new ‘Song of the week’:

Today is Australia Day and I got my very first Saturday off in 2 months, time to celebrate bitches!!

PS: Tonight I got a date with Dub Fx @ Sydney..! ❤
