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.
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 :)
