5 months between Australia and South East Asia as my first solo travel trip

Travelling alone has changed everything such as my vision of life essentially. Going out of my comfort zone has been the best thing I have ever done in my life so far. I can’t wait to do it again such it brings you so much for your personal evolution. Life is so beautiful and especially very well arranged.

From this travel, everything has changed…

At this time, I keep travelling alone with for only travel buddy my backpack and my camera to show and sensitize people about Earth’s beauty and life’s beauty because nothing happens by chance. Travelling alone has been a true revelation because from this first solo travel trip in 2013, everything has changed…
