Very quiet … almost untouched…

About me

This blog is all about the countries I’ve been to and those I have yet to explore, clothes I can’t seem to find in any boutiques, jewelleries I’ll never wear, crafts I'll never make, art I’ll never own, and food I’ll never be able to cook.

Some are my personal writings .. I live .. I ignore warning labels. I revel in the pressure, the adrenaline.. that feeling of being on the edge and the fast pace that characterizes life.. I smoke brain, go high on life and fools around with my imagination! I'm on life crack and I like it... welcome to my world!
