This is what you shall do; Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body.

Not I, nor anyone else can travel that road for you.
You must travel it by yourself.
It is not far. It is within reach.
Perhaps you have been on it since you were born, and did not know.
Perhaps it is everywhere—on water and land.

Do I contradict myself? Very well, then, I contradict myself; I am large—I contain multitudes.

― Walt Whitman

I love October, when there’s no sun outside but everything is cute colors and it’s cold enough that I can see my breath.

Parc des Buttes-Chaumont

Yesterday I went to this magical looking park in Paris, it was so beautiful ! I fell in love with this place. It was freezing, around 11 degrees Celsius (51 Fahrenheit) so I only went for a short stroll, and shot the pictures below using my iPhone 6s.

I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list.

My Instagram Stories

I started using the new Instagram “Stories” feature some week ago, and although I got some bad vibes in the beginning because it’s a total (& blatant) rip-off of Snapchat, I decided to post content there too anyway. The reason why is because my Snapchat is for more personal updates about my life, like what I do or am into, and an overshare of selfies – especially using their awesome filters. Whereas on my IG Stories you’ll find more professional things, as I mostly share travel photos and BTS (behind the scenes).
