Back in September/October, from my apartment in Neukölln in Berlin, Germany, I shut down my old blog at this very domain. I did so because it had started to feel fake, and was reminiscent of a time during which there was a hell of a lot of stuff going on in my life that I didn’t quite like.
Part of me felt like I should have kept the blog running, creating a linear path of thoughts, emotions and growth for the world to see. Another, larger part of me, felt it was time to drop what I had been writing about and move on.
A clean slate and fresh start were what I wanted. After Germany, I spent a few months traveling to China, the UAE, Singapore, Indonesia, Hong Kong and now India. If you’re a follower of me on Twitter or Instagram, you’ll have been familiar with the updates. If you’re into art, photography and design, you might want to check out a portfolio I’ve created of some works.
It’s January 2013 and I’m 7 months into my travels, with 6 more to go until a return to the United States. I couldn’t think of a better time for a fresh start.
