Footprints and Wanderlust: A Journey Through Life and Travel

It’s Starting:

September 2019, my birthday, I can’t believe, I spent already 44 old year…
I thought I was about to embark on a journey from Switzerland to Thailand. But here I am, at the Bangkok airport, passport-less. It was confiscated by the customs officer who ordered me to sit and wait.
Another fellow Belgian, equally clueless about his presence there, joins me in this debacle.
After half an hour, an immigration staff member passes by us. I stop them and ask why we have to wait. Their response leaves us dumbfounded – there’s a 99.9% chance we’ll be deported. Surprised, I inquire further, but they provide no answer and disappear into the crowd… The wait feels endless. Questions swirl in our minds, and the fatigue from a 15-hour journey starts to take its toll…

Introduction :

Dear Reader,

Have you ever felt the insatiable urge to capture the essence of life’s most remarkable moments? To wander through the world, collecting memories like treasures and stories like secrets? That’s precisely why I find myself embarking on this extraordinary endeavor of writing this manuscript—a humble collection of my life and travel experiences, woven together in an intimate tapestry of words.

You see, I’ve always been captivated by the power of storytelling. The way it can transport us to distant lands, evoke emotions we never knew existed, and connect us on a profoundly human level. It’s through this manuscript that I hope to share with you the magic, the mishaps, and the marvels that have shaped my journey thus far.

In the following pages, I invite you to join me on an adventure filled with laughter, tears, serendipitous encounters, and unexpected detours. There won’t be a strict itinerary or a rigid guidebook to follow. Instead, imagine this as a heartfelt conversation between friends, where vulnerability and authenticity reign supreme.

Through the simplicity of a personal diary-style, I aim to bring you closer to the essence of my experiences—the moments that left me breathless, the friendships that warmed my soul, and the self-discoveries that forever altered my perspective. This manuscript is a glimpse into the captivating chaos and sheer beauty of a life fully lived.

So, let us embark on this literary journey together, where we’ll wander down winding paths, get lost in the labyrinth of memories, and uncover the hidden treasures that lie within the folds of my life. It won’t always be sunshine and rainbows, but I promise you a genuine, unfiltered account that will inspire, entertain, and maybe even make you question the boundaries of your own adventures.

Are you ready to dive into the depths of my experiences? Then turn the page and let the tales begin…

With wanderlust in my heart and a pen in hand,
