The Art of Travel?

The other day I watched The Art of Travel and after watching it I had so many things in my head that I didn't know how to write them or where to start.

First of all, after watching the movie I have mixed feelings. I liked the movie, you should watch it. Mixed feelings I said? From one hand I would like to start travelling again and get lost somewhere away from everything and everybody I know. But on the other hand I'm still very much in love with the idea of settling somewhere and staying for a while.

"the only thing that matters in life is the people that you love, the hugs, the kisses (...), the actions we don't think about". Absolutely right! The best things in life are the simple things, the things we take for granted. I always cared about the people I love, sometimes in my own way but I cared, I still care. But it took me sometime to cared ONLY about them. There is no one or anything more important than them. 

"the art of travel is to deviate from one's plan". I always traveled without a plan so I had nothing to deviate from. But what happens when you do have a plan you don't want to deviate from, a plan that won't happen? 

I don't remember who introduced me to the band Vodka Juniors, it's a great band. One of their songs goes like this "like shadows in the sunshine, chasing the sun". Will I ever catch my sun?

I wanted to write more and I still have so many things inside my little head but I don't know how to put them "on paper", so I'll finish with this quote:

"if she's amazing, she won't be easy.
if she's easy, she's not amazing.
if she's worth it, you won't give up.
if you give up, you're not worthy.
truth is that everybody is going to hurt you, you just gotta find the ones worth suffering for."

- Bob Marley

Is life trying to teach something right now or is it a coincidence?

The best thing I could say now is the quote of Sylvia Plath:

"If neurotic is wanting two mutually exclusive things at one and the same time, then I'm neurotic as hell. I'll be flying back and forth between one mutually exclusive thing and another for the rest of my days."
