Anıtkabir, Ankara

I often reminisce over my times spent traveling. whether it being me mindlessly flipping through countless photographs and videos I took while on the road or the sheer memory of my body sensing the vibrations of the foreign land which I stand upon. The cloudless sky of Ankara on an early March morning and the Turkish people's patriotism and love for their country I felt when visiting the Ataturk Mausoleum. The emerald water of the Bosphorus Strait that is full of jellyfish and other quirky marine creatures, or the unmistakably iconic view of Hagia Sophia in Istanbul.

Those memories are so beautifully personal to me that no words could ever their justice and accurately describe the emotions that come up when I look back on my travels. A life beyond language barriers, beyond country borders and beyond rules and stipulations is a life beyond limits and imaginations, it is a life I yearn to live, I aspire to pursue. Creating my own path and telling stories as I explore...
