hello friends, *sweeps off dust from this page*
sorry i've been mia for quite some time. even though i say this almost every single time i write something new, lol. i guess me and consistent writing, we just don't get along very well. anyway, i traveled recently. i went to melbourne and visited a good of mine there. this trip was a pretty big deal for me. the previous semester has been quite a rough one, so i decided to just travel on a whim. it was my first time travelling solo, and for someone who could barely speak over the phone to the domino's operator- it's a pretty big deal for me. im very blessed to be given the opportunity to travel so often. im aware that not many people get that chance as much as i do, although so many people wish to. alhamdulillah, im forever grateful. travelling makes one more aware of their surroundings. you're exposed to so many new things, new experiences, new cultures, new people. unusual and alien environments that you would never even experience if you didn't step out of your comfort zone. travelling makes you realize how gigantic the world is, and how minuscule you are, in comparison to everything else. you learn that this world doesn't revolve around you, and there is so much more to learn it. so if you're given the opportunity to travel, travel. and make the most of it. explore what is around you, do the things you have never done, and admire the beauty in everything.
enough of the exaggerated-bombastic-words-you-would-get-from-a-camera-commercial, i put together a mini travel log from my recent trip in snapshot form, hope you enjoy the video :)
