Getting started on traveling

For the longest time I had dreamed of seeing, sipping and savoring the world, after many years I have finally started this great adventure.

I left Home to look for other homes all over driven by my intention of giving, I am taking at least one year to volunteer wherever I can be needed and hope to collaborate with many people that are making a change in the world.

And even though the adventure has just begun I am already reflecting upon what I’ve learned so far:

1. What Jamaica taught me: People are great and the joy to live and love is free. 

The fact you don’t understand a culture doesn’t give you a say on who they are, I feel a lot of people have an opinion about Jamaica and their people, their ways of being, but what I see is they are amazing and have everything to offer the world #respect #goodvibes #yamon

2. What Cambridge taught me: It’s funny how the mind works, it’s set to get used to things and repeat patterns so as much as you research and plan ahead the right option is always the one your intuition points to. Even if you are a super thorough planner, reality has it’s own twists and turns so always listen to your common sense and intuition e.g. If you see an ATM from your bank and think “I might need some cash” then get it, otherwise you will be trying to get it when you don’t have the time or when you’re not in the place and it will just cost you a lot more and remember pounds are not euros and euros are not usd so check your math.

Electrical Storm

There is a storm watch over Cancun, for a few hours the climate was very hot, suddenly heavy dark clouds started winning over the blue sky, a few drops or rain came down.

Then the horizon became bleak and the feeling of the power of a lightning very close by struck (and actually it burned my modem) but all I could think of is to wait for another one and see how the electrical storm would develop.

Here are the pictures:

 

The beginning of the storm, the heavy clouds gaining on the horizon while the sun was going down

The climate became very windy, a cool strong wind that made the palm trees seem like rubber bands

The sunset was fighting the heavy clouds and they formed a circle up in the sky which turned pink and purple

Waiting for the next lightning to strike

I got lucky and caught a little bit of one

I always look at the sky and the clouds and this was a very special show, to watch them turn into a Nebula, so similar to the insides of a Star

Just a little bit of clear sky left in bright blue

SUNSET: a colored gift

After a few moments of rain and a potential thunderstorm, nature gave us:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nubes

I love to photograph clouds, they are always different, sometimes they move, sometimes they appear to be drawn, sometimes they seem to be the background of a videogame, they shine, they reflect colors, they give way to your imagination to see anything that you want with their shape.

I like to photograph clouds in all the forms that I can percieve, here are some of my pictures.
