Thoughts...

Before I give my final thoughts on my trip to Switzerland I been thinking that I am a happy guy and that i do appreciate more and more what i have and what and who makes part of my life. These thoughts came to mind a few minutes ago while i was listening/headbanging to Motorhead's Victory or Die.

I am now 34 years old and for the last few years, i been feeling something changing in me. Sometimes feels i am 15 again. Trying to exercise regularly, going to the streets as often as i can, being creative, learning new things, trying to get to know new people and getting together with good friends. And obvioulsy searching for new places to go.

In the opposite side, i am much more patient although i have not a lot of patience. I think that focusing more and more on landscape photography taught me how to be more patient. It was hard to do a good landscape photography when i was stressed out and running around. Over time i learned how to plan, analyze and wait for the right conditions, something i did not do in the beginning.

As of today, i visited 14 countries and hopefully, i will be visiting the 15th this year. I came back a few days ago from two weeks away and i can't stop thinking about where i am going next. Cuba? Japan? Indonesia? New Zeeland? Vietnam? India? Nepal? When i started traveling i never thought i would ever be in the places i have been and i want to go farther and farther away. And wanting to capture the iconic photos of those places helps to go even more.

I am not trying to paint a picture of an amazing life. Far from it. I am not in a relationship, i don't have a stable job (although while running i thought i would never be happy being in one), i don't have a lot of friends and most of my days are spent at home in a corner working on my computer and taking photos. It may seem i complain from the same things over and over again. Maybe i do because these are things i would like to change. From time to time things do change and i do make the most of it. As i said at the beginning, i am much more appreciative of what i have instead of getting paranoid about what i don't.

 Welcome to my "favorite" corner of the world where the magic happens.

With all of that said here is one of the first final edits from my trip to Zermatt. And yes, I am a Happy Guy :)
