There are many things in life that take my breath away. Some things just discovered, like a beach I am seeing for the first time; and some things familiar that never cease to make me smile, like my favourite coffee from the café two blocks down. It is these things both mundane and unreal that remind me everyday that life is a beautiful thing full of wonderful surprises in every turn, if only we knew where to look and to look close enough, long enough.

I am filling this blog with everything I want to share with everyone. Experiences I want to tell everyone about, little islands I want the world to see, all the food I think we all should try, and timeless books worth reading again and again.

This is dedicated to you, you beautiful soul. It is a glimpse into the world, and may it inspire you to seize each day and hold it tight with both your hands.
