it's currently about 9:15 am, i can hear the birds chirping as i'm sitting next to the river, breathing in the fresh air and writing in my notebook. i'm in the most peaceful spot, one i didn't even know existed until a couple of weeks ago. it's just me, my thoughts, and nature.

i discovered this place when i went on a walk with my friend jess, simply because we took a path i've never really taken before. and it's not just this spot that's pretty damn beautiful, it's the entire walk. through fields, under trees, along the river.

isn't it funny that i've been living in this village for the past eighteen years of my life yet still haven't seen everything there is to see?

i used to think that discovering new places means travelling, which is partly true and something i hope i'll be able to do a lot of in my life, but you don't always have to go far to explore, you'll just have to take a different path than the one you usually take. 

if we're willing to look, we'll find beauty everywhere around us.

  1. I agreed on the fact that you don't have to travel far to have an adventures. Most of mines consist of just exploring new places in my city. There are so many things that I discover every time me and my case workers have one of our adventure days. The photo is beautiful! it looks like someplace I use to go ( a forest near where I lived in my host home) to have photo shoots and just walk around.
    here's to more adventures!
    I wish you all the best,
