Even disregarding the meaning “vagabond” strikes me as a very intriguing word… it has a nice sound to it!
The itinerant wanderer, surfing on the vague whims of the moment, not following any predestined path, holds a sort of wild mystical fascination. All the best stories and anecdotes seem to have their origins in some sort of voyage. Maybe these unforeseeable opportunities and experiences can only open up away from that stronghold of all the ideas that have become the norm, removed from the shackles of routine.
2012, for me, has already been quite the kaleidoscope of impressions. To date, this year I have been in Austria; in Spain to visit my dad; in Paris which was a spontaneous and rather random idea with the same friend as Spain; in Cyprus for a long due visit to one of the coolest people in this world; in Thailand with my family; and most recently in Poland at the EJC. The end of all of these took me back to Berlin, to the home base. Now I am about to embark upon a journey that will hopefully allow me to tumble freely across the US and Canada, blown this way and that by the winds of festival and adventure.
…I kind of hope that line wasn’t too pathetically cheesy… Bear with me!
Along my way I want to keep this blog updated with what I’m up to and share some of the impressions, moments and pictures that I encounter on my way.
I would be super happy to hear from people. Any feedback I get will keep me motivated to keep going. Even an “I was here” is enough. Take it as creating an illusion for me, in which I’m not just wasting my time here!
