No Juan is an Island says —

In a time and world when and where most information is just a mouse click or “Google” away, it’s as if undergoing something personal is no longer necessary. The internet with all its provisions, and the concept of “existing second-hand through someone else’s know-how” seem to have deceptively become the universal sense of whatsoever.

At one point in my life, I assumed I have discerned all the nitty-gritty during my university stint… where almost everything of essence can be found within the four corners of an academic institution. But when I discovered the doors and windows of traveling – local and foreign – I have come to realize that the most valued teachings in life can certainly not be said in black and white. Instead, these lessons must be experienced. Cliché as it may sound, but “experience” is and will always be one of the greatest teachers. So, stop second-guessing your next move. Don’t just exist. Instead of being a spectator observing this beautiful realm of ours unreceptive, start living it. It would surely make you feel a little bit more connected to the world. And as I always, always say – “Go, somewhere. Do not be a wasted soul, be wanderlust!

This site primarily shares travel and food posts. So come join No Juan is an Island as he inspires you and makes you realize that there is more to life than just breathing.
