Some Final Words

It has been exactly a month now since returning to the US. Life is busy and days are filled with hours of LSAT studies, visiting old friends, and spending time with the family. Am I happy to be home? Absolutely. But do I constantly find myself daydreaming and planning my next adventure? Of course. On that note, I'd just like to share with all of you a favorite quote of mine, as I feel like it describes this past year, as well as my insatiable curiosity for travel and getting to know this beautiful world. Thanks for joining me in what has been an amazing journey ....

Some people do not have to search, for they find their niche early in life and rest there seemingly contented and resigned. At times, I envy them, but usually I do not understand them…and seldom do they understand me. I am one of those searchers. There are, I believe, millions of us. We are not unhappy, but neither are we completely content. We continue to explore life, hoping to uncover its ultimate secret. We continue to explore ourselves, hoping to understand. We like to take walks along the beach; we are drawn by the ocean, taken by its power and unceasing motion, its mystery and unspeakable beauty. We like forests, mountains, deserts, hidden rivers, and lovely cities as well. Our sadness is as much a part of our lives as our laughter. To share our sadness with the ones we love is perhaps as great a joy as we know, unless it is to share our laughter. We searchers are ambitious only for life itself and for anything beautiful it can provide. Most of all, we want to love and be loved, to live in a relationship that will not impede our wanderings and prevent our search. We do not want to prove ourselves to others or compete for love. This passage is for wanderers, dreamers, and lovers who dare to ask of life everything which is good and beautiful.

Due to technical reasons, photos from travels to Turkey, Scotland, Paris, Germany, Vienna, Budapest, and Valencia cannot be uploaded. However, all of these travel adventures can be seen on my facebook page. Enjoy!
