When is the best moment to quit your job, get rid of all the things you gathered throughout the years and leave to travel the world? I really don’t know, but at some point I decided that the time is now!
I was curious about the world since a child and figured exploring it, in every possible way, would be the right thing to do, and so I did. After a career in art, culture and social related documentaries for television and radio for almost 10 years in my hometown Luxembourg, editorial work for a magazine that connects visual arts and sustainability, creative work for exhibitions and video installations, I decided to leave everything behind and started my personal journey around the globe.
My material life has vanished, in boxes, cellars, attics, at friends places, to a good cause, to the garbage can. I left Europe with my backpack on the 1st of february 2015 and am on the road ever since, mainly in South East Asia. While traveling in the most simple way possible, I realised that I can use everything I learned throughout the years to start collecting an telling stories of people I meet along the road.
Nothing in my life is planned anymore because I figured the best plan is having no plan and just let things happen. Having no deadlines and no tight agenda; that’s s how I keep ending up in the most unpredictable places meeting the most amazing people and recording what it is they have to share or say.
If you ask me today : “Where would you wanna be right now, if you could be anywhere? “ The answer would definitely be “here and now”. And as long as that’s my answer, I know that I am exactly where I should be and that makes me happy and content every single day.
Life is now, and that’s the only truth there is.
