If you ever have the opportunity to travel, go for it. Even if it means travelling with a less than ideal companion. It’s always worth it to see new places and meet new people.
My journey started in Las Vegas. Thankfully I was not in Vegas for long. Vegas is not for me, at all. I hated almost every minute of it. I felt like I was in a poorly designed video game with cheap graphics giving the illusion of freedom. It’s just another over-priced, unimpressive, claustrophobic city with the same trashy girls you can find anywhere else in the world, wobbling around like new born chicks. I sound bitter but I’m glad I went. How else would I know never to go back?
Needless to say, I was happy to be on the road.
We went to: Canyonlands (Mesa Arch, False Kiva), Antelope Canyon (Upper and Lower), Bryce, Horseshoe Bend, Monument Valley, Zion (hiked The Narrows), and Valley of Fire.
There are still a few images missing, due to a memory card mix up and some improperly transferred files. What can you do, you win some and you lose some.
I used to sit at my computer desk watching every one else live their lives. Click after click, feeling worse and worse about myself. Feeling incapable of tearing myself away from the screen. Like a mouse enchanted by a cobra. Now I seize every opportunity I can to travel. Unfortunately, I found myself travelling with a less than ideal companion. I have however learnt a lot about myself in that time. I now know the type people who do not belong in my life. You probably know the ones I’m talking about. Those soul sucking, uninspired, self-obsessed individuals who believe their words are the be all and end all of any conversation. Only their opinions matter and only the sound of their own voice resonates. They come into your life and try to dominate and dictate the “correct” way of doing things, selfishly snubbing anything unconventional yet secretly coveting it for themselves. They intentionally and purposefully leach off of creative minds until it’s dry and brittle. I bit my tongue for too many days. Now I say a big “F U” to those individuals and vow never to let another one in. So long! The next adventure awaits.
