Hopeless optimist who wants to be happy no matter the world full of pessimists and schemers who attempt to diffuse the spirit. A bright-eyed believer, a faith-keeper, a lover of life. Absolute book bug who swears by the written word and worships its author. My kind of ideal life is one that of a fiercely independent, knowledge-hungry traveler - who digs the beach life, all kinds of local food, strangers, new cultures and books alike. I have made this blog to collect my thoughts in one place, so that they don't get lost somewhere as I go.
