Thoughts from - yet another - airport

Jesus, can you stay in one place for once?
-- @acidyo to @anomad, circa April 2019

Well, the name says it all, I'm not called @aSedentarySoul or @aStayInOnePlaceSoul so, every once in a while I feel the urge to be on the move, to keep going places and to continue exploring unknown paths.

Most of the times that I leave for a long term adventure, I try to go to Mexico City and visit my grandmas - you never know how much longer they'll be around -, family and most importantly, my dogs.

Yeah, I'm kidding, don't worry, I don't think it's more important to see my dogs than to see my family.

You know how there's people who value more their pets over another human life? Well I'm not one of those, not because I don't love my pets or because I think there's a special kind of worthless human beings - cause the are - , but because I like to think that a human life is priceless and it's not up to me to decide who lives and who dies.

But that's way too philosophical and controversial, let's take two steps back.

I'm heading to Mexico City, leaving the literal paradise behind against my will. I say it's against my will because if it was up to me, I would stay there and live in the area forever, but there's something inside me telling me to move, to leave.

There are two travel-related phrases that I really like, that actually inspire the adventure side of this nomadic man:

Somewhere, Something Incredibles is waiting to be Known.
-- Karl Sagan

My greatest adventure is yet to come
-- Inspired by Bilbo Baggins's writings

So that's the main thing. As much as I love living in the Caribbean, it holds no more adventures for me. I already lived there in 2011 and in 2016, both times for more than a couple months. I'm not trying to imply that I know every corner of the region and that I've done everything that's there to be done, and that I already explored all the places ready to be conquered, I'm just saying that my soul craves to explore territory hitherto undreamt to tackle the unknown, to write new pages on my adventure book.

By the way, I hope you got the Dr Strange reference in the previous paragraph.

Have you ever wondered what your life book will be about? Are you in peace with how your pages are being written? If your answer is yes, I'm sincerely happy for you; if your answer is No, then what are you waiting for?

Your greatest adventure is yet to come.

By the way, bonus points to whoever guesses in the comment section my next destination :D

Somewhere, Something Incredibles is waiting to be Known.

Totally agree on that one. We've been living in Budapest for 1,5 years now, and to be honest, it's getting itchy lol. I want more. I want to see more, and I want to explore more..

Your greatest adventure is yet to come

So true, I know it, I feel it, but I also know it's not the right time yet. So until then, I will stick to Budapest.. and enjoy being jealous when people (like you lol) throw all these great pictures at my feed, of places where I desperately want to go :)

Enjoy the family time! <3

Time out to see one's family is always the best... Oh, and when next you decide on another adventure let me tag along, heaven knows I need a vacation. Have fun

Have a safe flight and godspeed!

I'm also a nomad since childhood and the word is in my profile here and everywhere. I know it is time to leave when I get too comfortable. So far, 3 years in SE Asia has not been too much, and I am really enjoying it.

My favorite time in life is when I am somewhere and I have absolutely no idea what I am looking at. That feels like home to me.

No choice? hahaha...

I would stay there and live in the area forever, but there's something inside me telling me to move, to leave.

This must be a familiar feeling when you are @anomadsoul 😉

I really like the quotes you shared. Simple in the delivery, but great depth to the meaning.

Have a safe trip bro!

Have a safe travel

I have an especially busy few months, and I’ve been thinking about your great travel blogs when I’m stuck in planes and trains. Safe travels, man. Enjoy the path.

You are right family is important.
