TRAVEL MAN

We should admire nature’s wonders and do that today. Not tomorrow. Because tomorrow might already be too late. For them, but most of all for us. The only form of movement is the journey.

The moment I reinvented myself, these were the words that seemed to fit-Travel Man. To see and feel became more important than to have and use. And then I started my journey.Me and my camera. And what I discovered I shared with others, in my own words. And I like to think that because of my journey,someone somewhere discovered the world,walking on my path. And if that really happened, it is the greatest reward for the efforts and adventures of my travels. At the end of the road, the only thing you still carry with you on the Greatest Journey is just… your memories. To gather stuff, to buy houses, cars,refrigerators, to indulge yourself with an extra pair of shoes, beside the other 6 you already have, to get another bank loan, to build another pool…. Such human actions, simple, routine, normal. So earthbound. And so farther from the sky. Because, let’s be honest, how many of us, busy and head down tracing the worldly goods, remember to look up to the sky, watching in awe a murmuration of starlings, listening to the perfect whistle of the blackbird, how many of us still feel the thrill of a sea gull’s cry, how many still bow when admiring a colony of penguins hatching their eggs at -50 C? We cannot but bow before nature and, as small creatures that we ourselves are, learn from fellow creatures, feathered, furred, with claws or fangs. We should better stay afar and watch, we should not bend nature to fit our modest dimensions. We should better watch and learn and respect their space, we should admire nature’s wonders and do that today. Not tomorrow. Because tomorrow might already be too late. For them, but most of all for us. The only form of movement is the journey.

CALATORII FOARTE DRAGI MIE

De multe ori, destinatia conteaza mai putin. Drumul insa este cel care m-a chemat intotdeauna. Sa vezi si sa simti este secretul. Singura forma de miscare e calatoria…

DE CE SA CALATORESTI CAND POTI SA STAI?

Suntem obisnuiti si ni se spune inca din frageda pruncie ca „trebuie sa” si „asa se face”. Nu mai bine experimentezi cu mintea, cu simturile, cu vazul si auzul tau? Si ai atatea de vazut, simtit, gustat, auzit! Stai azi, stai maine, stai poimaine. Te hotarasti cu greu. Si timpul trece. Tic tac tic tac..

Amintirile sunt de nesters, masinile ruginesc

Pentru ca un frigider, o masina, niste termopane, chiar si o casa sunt infinit mai neimportante decat o planeta de umblat.

Cunoaste-te pe tine insuti!

Si cum altfel daca nu aruncandu-te intr-o mare aventura, cea mai colorata si frumoasa dintre toate: sa cunosti lumea in care traiesti si care te inconjoara! Si o sa-ti cunosti sigur limitele, unele dintre ele nici nu ai fi banuit ca le ai.

Intalnesti oameni minunati

Stand la un birou si facand aceleasi miscari zi de zi de zi de zi nu vei cunoaste foarte multe din viata asta si despre tine. Ca sa nu mai vorbim de cunostintele noi si prietenii pe care ti-i vei face.

Fa ceva cu viata ta

E timpul sa aduci putina miscare in rutina zilnica, nu crezi? Daca nu o faci azi, maine o sa intervina cine stie ce, poimaine ai intalnirea aia, saptamana viitoare nu se poate pentru ca etc etc. Si mai trece un an, doi, cinci. O viata. Do it now! Ia-o la pas si calatoreste.

LA O VORBA CU OAMENI INTALNITI IN CALE

Si poate arunci si o privire prin fotografiile calatoriilor trecute. Si chiar si prin filme, cadre surprinse care sa redea putin din sunetul locurilor. Si oamenii si mestesugurile lor minunate.
