That moment, that feeling, that beauty.

If the majority of the people in the world would travel

there’d be more understanding

more relationships

more connection to the environment,

because as you travel from A to B

you realize that we are all connected

that if you cut a tree here or there

it can be felt on the other side.

If the majority of the people in the world would travel

everyone would get along

because we would understand

that every person is unique

but not because you live here or there

you are better or less than anyone,

we are all the same.

The world can always surprise you,

but only if you allow it to

 because no matter how much you travel

you can always feel connected with someone

no matter the language, race, eye colour or religion;

and in that moment.. that exact moment

your own world changes,

everything changes

because you never thought

that you could connect with someone

so much

so far away from home

away from everything you know.

That’s the beauty of travelling..

the connections, the moments that make you feel,

that point when you want to hug our surroundings

but the feeling and the place is so overwhelming and big

that you start crying.

That’s the beauty.

Have you ever been to any of these places and felt that feeling?.. connected with someone? got mesmerized? Share your beautiful story..

For me it was when I saw the Big Ben for the first time. I’ve fantasized so much with this place. I remember that I was stepping out of the underground station that’s right in front of the Big Ben, and the moment I put my head up, I wasn’t expecting to see that, in that moment, so I got starstruck  by it. I literally couldn’t move for a few seconds and my eyes began to get all watery.. I had that feeling, that connection, that moment of wanted to hug the whole city of London, that overwhelming feeling.. Happiest moment ever..

Tattoos to go!

I love tattoos. When a person has one, especially a beautiful one, I can stare them for ages. Or if it is a really ugly one then I would just stare and ask in my mind; why the fuck did you get that permanently in your body?????!!

Either way, tattoos fascinate me. If a guy has a tattoo, it just makes him a 1000 times more attractive for me.

In case you are wondering, YES, I would love to have a tattoo but I’m looking for a really original design (I think I have it, finally).. so now all I need to do is collect money and get my ass kicked by my mom and dad 😀

Here are some of the most amazing travel tattoos I’ve seen on the internet

BTW if any of you have one, share it!!. A great tattoo is a piece of art that the world should see.

Only an open heart allows you to float freely across the universe

The world is divided into two kinds of people:  those who have tattoos, and those who are afraid of people with tattoos.

One of my favourites

She flies with her own wings

My body is a journal in a way.  It’s like what sailors used to do, where every tattoo meant something, a specific time in your life when you make a mark on yourself, whether you do it yourself with a knife or with a professional tattoo artist. 

~Johnny Depp~

When the designs are chosen with care, tattoos have a power and magic all their own.  They decorate the body but they also enhance the soul. 

~Michelle Delio~

Not one great country can be named, from the polar regions in the north to New Zealand in the south, in which the aborigines do not tattoo themselves. 

~Charles Darwin, The Descent of Man~

Your body is a temple, but how long can you live in the same house before you redecorate? 

~Author Unknown~

Beauty is skin deep.  A tattoo goes all the way to the bone. 

~Vince Hemingson~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This last two are my personal favourite. I’ll try to incorporate them both in a single tattoo

Eye of Horus; means protection and healing

You may lose your most valuable property through misfortune in various ways.  You may lose your house, your wife and other treasures.  But of your moko, you cannot be deprived except by death.  It will be your ornament and companion until your last day.  ~Netana Whakaari of Waimana~

King Tut, my love

Soon, in Panama, the King Tut (my deceased husband) exhibition its going to be here with some of his treasures. Its to commemorate the 90th anniversary of its discovery in 1922 by Howard Carter.

I’m so excited, King Tut has been my obsession since I was a little kid. I’m pretty sure I was his wife, might do a regression session to find this out, but I’m 78% sure :)

US

Instead of buying toys I would buy books about him or Egypt (my first country love). I still have that little thing about him and Egypt. Its my favourite part in museums, I can spend hours in the Egypt part, seriously.

When Howard Carter, famous English egyptologist discovered the tomb, many deaths have occurred, and after that there has been this mystery of the Pharaoh’s Curse. Which is pretty funny, my baby wouldn’t hurt a fly, he was so innocent.. (oh god I’m delusional)

Anyway, when the exhibition finally arrives in Panama I’m gonna take tons of pics and post them here.

But in the meantime, some pictures..

His “possible face”. He was wayyyy cuter though
