MIND: Vagabonding

Thus, the question of how and when to start vagabonding is not really a question at all. Vagabonding starts now. Even if the practical reality of travel is still months or years away, vagabonding begins the moment you stop making excuses, start saving money, and begin to look at maps with the narcotic tingle of possibility. From here, the reality of vagabonding comes into sharper focus as you adjust your worldview and begin to embrace the exhilarating uncertainty that true travel promises.

MIND: Reformed

The civilized man is a more experienced and wiser savage.

Walden // Henry David Thoreau

MIND: Pathways

The best way to travel, after all, is to feel,
to feel everything in every way,
to feel everything excessively,
because all things are, in truth, excessive
and all reality is an excess,
a violence, an extraordinarily vivid hallucination.

// Fernando Pessoa

MIND: Resilience

Understand, people will constantly attack you in life.
One of their main weapons will be to instill in you doubts about yourself –
your worth, your abilities, your potential.
They will often disguise this as their objective opinion,
but invariably it has a political purpose – they want to keep you down.
