For the last 5 years I’ve dreamed of leaving England to go travelling and this year I finally left. Starting in Brazil for Carnival, I imagined travelling alone through Argentina, Chile, Peru, etc, but instead met a girl, spent over 4 months on the coast of Brazil, and now find myself in the heart of Mexico with a rough plan to travel south through central america. For me the best element of travelling is the way your plans can change at any moment. That you wake up each day with complete freedom to go or do whatever you want.
A few weeks ago looking through the photos I’ve taken I decided it time to create a home for them, and whilst reading a book by Henry Miller, came across a quote that began with ‘the nine reasons for reincarnation’. I don’t believe in reincarnation, or any sort of afterlife for that matter, but felt there were places I’d seen that were so incredible it would be reason enough to live a life on earth again in order to experience them. So began this blog, which is mainly photos right now, documenting my journey.
‘Features’ are places I’ve been that really stand out as unique from the rest while the ‘reasons’ section will be an infinite scroll of my favourite photographs.
