Back when everything was new.  Crossing barbed wire was a right of passage. Going somewhere you weren't supposed to was exciting... Much of that is different now, but witnessing the sun breaking through a small gap in a storm still seems like divine intervention.

I'm not an influencer nor am I an ambassador. I have nothing to sell. Just like you, I work a real job with intense responsibility but travel to experience life as though I might die tomorrow.

2018 was an amazing year. When I reflect on my experiences, exploring the highlands of Iceland on a solo adventure is the absolute highlight.  Going days without speaking to another human was a unique experience for me.  I'm looking forward to 2019 which will begin with a trip back to Spain. 
I sincerely wish you all the best in your endeavors!  Happy New Year!

There are mysteries in life that can't be explained... Like, for example, why does string cheese taste better eaten as pulled strands?

There was this stormy day in Ireland that I spent climbing barbed wire fences in the driving rain trying to get to a sea arch while the ocean pounded into the cliffs.  Just as the sun began to set, the light came, and nothing else mattered.

On the extreme Western edge of Europe the ocean is met by steep, striated cliffs and rocky beaches often accessed by narrow trails or old stone stairs. Rather than big cities, hotels and condominiums there are miles of farmland perched above.

The Bible suggests that earth is about 6000 years old.  That means that you can watch erosion happen in real time.  Coincidentally that also means these spires have already disappeared since I photographed them a month ago.  That's great news, because it's one fewer place to consider for your bucket list.  I do need to thank @dustinlefevre for telling me about them before wind and water wiped them away.
