“I woke up as the sun was reddening; and that was the one distinct time in my life, the strangest moment of all, when I didn't know who I was - I was far away from home, haunted and tired with travel, in a cheap hotel room I'd never seen, hearing the hiss of steam outside, and the creak of the old wood of the hotel, and footsteps upstairs, and all the sad sounds, and I looked at the cracked high ceiling and really didn't know who I was for about fifteen strange seconds. I wasn't scared; I was just somebody else, some stranger, and my whole life was a haunted life, the life of a ghost.” 
― Jack KerouacOn the Road

For me, traveling is something personal, something i will do with my trusted friend, with someone i know.  Why? Because i love the strange feelings i had when i'm on travel.  When i saw strange person in the eye and found some little piece of myself in their eyes.  Like somehow i know in a distance, far far away i know i will keep finding something familiar in the most strange things. 

At that moment i love how people have something in common : sharing.  To share love, to someone that we think have less than us, to share happines with things, to someone that we think dont have things like us, or life like us.  But going in this journey makes me realize something, its not me that giving something, its them.  Its them that keep living, not giving up in the darkness of the light, to keep having hope, keep going out even at the situation that we cant possibly think we can make it through. 

Its us, having a lesson.  To feeling gratitude and be the best version of ourself, to keep on trying even the hard path are laughing off our face, to keep praying and trusting God about the way we will live on.  To keep going.  So, thank you.
