I just had a breakthrough today.
Once upon a time I was a caged bird longing to fly into the wide open fields, dive the sea and touch the blue blue sky. A friend once told me that people choose to be nomads because they're still searching for something they haven't found yet. What exactly was I searching for? It troubled me for a while that I still didn't know the answer to that question.
For a long time I was not ready to return home. Then it suddenly struck me today, like a lightning bolt. I'm overwhelmed by a realisation that suddenly made so much sense.
The thought of home is like a mother's loving embrace through the eyes of a lost child. The thought of home is shining sweetly in the distance, welcoming, warm and smiling at me. At long last my journey ends after 1.5 years of travel. I can hardly wait!

"NOW" is a gift, that's why they call it "THE PRESENT"
Travel life has the essence of a dream.
It is something outside the normal,
yet you are in it.
It is peopled with characters you have never seen before
and in all probability will never see again.
It brings occasional homesickness, and loneliness,
and pangs of longings...
But you are like the vikings who have gone into a world of adventure,
and home is not home until you return.
But home is where the heart is.
So where is home?
Dance like no one is watching
Love like you've never been hurt
Sing like no one's listening
Live like it's heaven on earth
Chocolate flows in deep dark, sweet waves, a river to ignite the mind and alert the senses...
Unexpected events in our daily lives are like different flavors that lie waiting beneath each chocolate cover.
Just like Forrest Gump explained:
"Life is like a box of chocolate, coz you never know what you're gonna get"
