Okay: go to Paris

check into a nice hotel, and my plan is I’m going to eat some fucking cheese and I’m gonna get drunk. ― Anthony Bourdain

Or in my case, check into a nice Airbnb, and my plan is I’m going to take some fucking good photos and I’m gonna get drunk 😉

My departure to Paris is approaching and I’m not ready yet. I haven’t yet researched where and when Fashion Week is going on. I hope to be lucky and catch something on the street. So this will be my last post before I leave for Paris. A lot of research and planning awaits me in the coming days.

Travel changes you

As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life and travel leave marks on you. ― Anthony Bourdain

For me…

a place unvisited is like unrequited love. A dull ache that—try as you might think it away, convince yourself that she wasn’t the right country for you—just won’t leave you in peace. — Eric Weiner

Traveling

it gives you home in thousand strange places, then leaves you a stranger in your own land. — Ibn Battuta

Travel isn’t always pretty.

It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind. — Anthony Bourdain

Learn to detach

Don’t cling to things, because everything is impermanent . . . But detachment doesn’t mean you don’t let the experience penetrate you. On the contrary, you let it penetrate fully. — Mitch Albom
