Have you heard of wanderlust?
Oh, yes this insisting and intensive desire to travel to different places!
Oh my Gosh!
There are soooo many places around the globe, but so little time and money, lol.
What are your thoughts about travelling?
It`s a controversial issue, isn`t it?
There are two schools of thought. Those who believe in the power of wander and those who have the, wrong to my mind, perception that we the travellers are in a constant run away from something....
Is the 'escape of life' the case tho?
Does travel mean running away from our daily struggles? Does it show weakness? Aren`t we brave enough to confront life to its full extent?
My answer to this is that we the wanderers run towards everything;
towards the infinite world of experiences. We leave our settled mundane lives behind to run after what the mighty world has to offer us!
We want to see the unseen to our eyes, taste weird food, meet new people, satisfy every inch of our senses.
We want to have an insight into other cultures; cultures that are not better or worse than ours.
Cultures with which we not only differ but have so much in common as well since we all share one small part on this planet.
We do say that life is short and we only live once (yolo) but do we actually live our lives according to this?
Each and every single of you have the answer deep inside you. How deep tho?
I keep saying to myself that I want to look back and praise myself for all the crazy, spontaneous decisions, ideas, things I`ve made/done in my life and have no regrets for any good or bad choice I`ve made.
So, based on this way of thinking (what a nice excuse), I went and spent a fabulous weekend in Portsmouth. My camera captured amazing images that I want to share with you.

you will be more disappointed by the things you didn`t do than by the things you did do. So leave your comfort zone and by what you witness you`ll stand in awe!
Next time, I`ll post Portsmouth part 2.
