It’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey.
Mine is one of discovery, and adventure. One that takes me to different corners of the world to wake up in places that are yet unknown to me.
I see people live, laugh and love and I live with them, I laugh with them and I love them - the colours of their clothes, their houses, the soil they stand upon, the smell of their food, the markets, the flowers that greet them at dawn, and the sounds of their drums, their steps, the rivers they dance along.
You showed me beauty, joy and happiness, without you even knowing it. You extended my senses to experience the world, like I never did before. And do you want to know what it feels like?
COME WITH ME!
… to explore and embrace different ways of life, trying to live like the locals do - it can be difficult to make it right immediately, but then, try again! - Cook some rice in a bamboo stick. Attend a Mayan ceremony. Dance with your body and soul. Swim with cows. Meditate before sunrise. Get advice from a local shaman. Learn a language. Get lost. Challenge your tastebuds with new cuisines. Hug trees. Explore colourful markets. Listen to stories shared around campfires. Experience a street art treasure hunt. Make friends with hyenas, and what not.
At the end of the day, smiling is the universal language that all people speak...
As a traveller on the road of life, I am always learning when journeying. As much as I like to explore places, I also like to travel inwards to grow spiritually through reiki and meditation.
On a more serious note...
I am a writer, photographer, documentary filmmaker, researcher and reiki practitioner with a passion for people, travel, arts and culture, the art of healing and all things spiritual, food, and the ethical. I have had the chance to live in a couple of countries including Belgium, the UK, Indonesia and Rwanda, and travel extensively. When it comes to my educational background, I have studied Cultural Studies and Social Anthropology at the University of Kent, and graduated with an MPhil in Development Studies from the University of Cambridge. I have a filmmaker's diploma (diplôme du cinéaste) from Raindance Brussels.
Feel free to contact me for more information, opportunities to work together, to order prints, say hi and what not.
