Surroundings… (Weekend Coffee Share)

Have you ever just sat somewhere and just observed your surroundings? . . . Ya, me neither. …Until a few hours ago… And, that’s what I’m gonna talk about in this weekend’s coffee share because a few days ago I saw this one-word prompt idea, and the word was surroundings. So, during that day, I…

Learning how to chill…

So, stress is not fun at all. And, learning that the hard way makes it even more stressful. . . . While I was living in Chile, I learned that stressing about things is never a good response. I learned to just go with the flow; to not always stress when things don’t happen on…

Perspective… / A Day in Valparaiso, Chile!

“Perspective changes everything!” . . . So, recently I took a trip to Valparaiso, Chile & I had the best day there, just wandering the city! Here’s an “itinerary” of that trip: 1- I took the bus (1 hour) to Valparaiso alone, and didn’t get lost once! 2- I explored and wandered the beautiful city…

It’s a big world out there!

“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.” — Astronomer Carl Sagan . . . So, I found this quote and wanted to share it because it makes me want to get up and travel somewhere, exploring the unknown parts of the world. There’s a place out there in the world that has something incredible…

An hour into my day!

The following post is just one hour into my day (through 15 minute intervals), today-January 28, 2018. . . . I’m going to start with the hour during & after lunch. 15:30 – Lunch time (by the way, I’m currently living in Chile & that is a normal lunch time). Today for lunch, I ate:…

Seeing…

Seeing something with your own eyes is always better! . . . I came across this image earlier today, and I just had to share it because it’s so great. If you’re even remotely considering traveling abroad, just go. Don’t ask people for their opinion, unless they’ve been to that country and they love traveling,…

A cup of coffee…

A different type of post that I haven’t done yet on this blog, but I wanted to try it out. Let me know what you think in the comments (when you finish reading). . . . I’m just going to write what-ever and how-ever I would, as if we are best friends just casually meeting…

The world around me…

So, for today’s post, I decided to observe the most popular place of the town where I’m currently living. . . . So, I’m just sitting here in the middle of “La Plaza de Armas” in Quillota, Chile, eating manjar ice cream in 30 degree Celsius weather, in the middle of January. . . ….

Learning…

For the record: I don’t know the person that posted the previous tweet, but I very much agree with it. Here’s why: . . . As a high school and college graduate, I do think education is important to start your life by learning the basics. But, as a traveler, I know that I still…

Where I write…

Place, setting, object, method, etc. . . . Many bloggers have specific settings where they write and what they use (laptop, tablet, phone, notepad, etc.). They have an ideal place they go to write about a specific subject using their ideal method of choice. . . . I applaud those bloggers because I am not…

The Train Station

For today’s post, I was given an image to form a thought about, and write whatever came to mind. So, my thought when seeing the picture above was: “Life is like a train station!”. . . . A train station: A place where people just get off one train to get on another train to…

Dear younger me,

          Hey you! I know you think that your life’s not going super great right now, and I wish I could tell you all the mistakes I’ve made, all the mistakes you will make, all the pain you will feel and just everything to help you have a perfect life & be one step ahead….

The Unknown… 

I’m tired of feeling stuck! I want to travel & experience new & different things! . . . I’m tired of living in this bubble of what I know about the world. I am starting to get tired of my comfort zone (I think this is a sign that I need to change something). I…
