Looking at it, this has truly been an amazing 3 months for me… I think i just fed the travel monster that lives inside of me and all I wanna do now is see more. I’ve learned so much, I shared so many great moments with new people and not so interesting moments, I guess it’s the unpredictable nature of human behavior… While out and about yesterday I think I may have stumbled across my next venture, I woke up today a resuscitated me with so much drive, you’d swear I worked for über. “If you love me you will pray for me.” I live to create, I’m a man with multiple outlets and I exploit them all!!! I hope to make my mama proud and my papa rich! (If your goals don’t make you nervous, you’re dreaming too small) I just went all fake deep on you I’m sorry, but if you’ve continued reading this far; I thank you! #paris #france #summer #sad17 #travelnoire 📸 @valentindvr
