 “I’m not afraid of dying. I’m afraid I haven’t been alive enough.” ⁣ —Mr. Nobody ⁣ ⁣ Beautiful weekends in #Medellín ⁣  @ismael_campo  “Leave the door open for the unknown, the door into the dark. That’s where the most important things come from, where you yourself came from, and where you will go.” ― Rebecca Solnit
 “Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.”⁣ ―Anais Nin⁣ ⁣ Following an ancient road to ruins, meditating in the river, talking about crystals… made my whole week to be part of this adventure trio.  @the.life.of.maga  “Anyone who isn't embarrassed of who they were last year probably isn't learning enough.”⁣ ― Alain de Botton⁣ ⁣ All geared up in the van headed to the start of mountain biking in Bolivia. Oreos stuffed in pockets for easy accessibility, rain gear, knee and elbow pads— lista por todo.
 “Cities were always like people, showing their varying personalities to the traveler. Depending on the city and on the traveler, there might begin a mutual love, or dislike, friendship, or enmity. Where one city will rise a certain individual to glory, it will destroy another who is not suited to its personality. Only through travel can we know where we belong or not, where we are loved and where we are rejected.”⁣ ― Roman Payne⁣ ⁣ Cerro adventures and healing knee injuries with @eliaspkfr #adventura #discoversouthamerica #medellin  “You're under no obligation to be who people think you are. Change, grow, rearrange yourself. Free and beautiful things always bloom and spark with no holding back.”⁣ ― Charlotte Eriksson⁣ ⁣ Laughing on the death road while riding hard and getting soaked in waterfalls and eating oreos and spending time with other amazing humans in the spectacular mountains in Bolivia, arriving at the end of the road completely covered in dust. We drank beers as the light faded and kittens played at our feet and I remembered something small but important— despite who we think we are and what we think we should be doing at any given moment adventure is out there— it’s always out there waiting to embrace us.
 “The only time I look back is if my ass is in the mirror.” —Rhianna  “For many years, I have been moved by the blue at the far edge of what can be seen, that color of horizons, of remote mountain ranges, of anything far away. The color of that distance is the color of an emotion, the color of solitude and of desire, the color of there seen from here, the color of where you are not. And the color of where you can never go.”⁣ ― Rebecca Solnit⁣ ⁣ The softest of blues rimming the mountains in the distance, the edges of dry earth crumbling at the ends of the canyon, the air dry and always, always, waiting.  @misadventures_of_sarah
 “Run to the fire, don’t hide from it.” —Meg Whitman  “Getting lost was not a matter of geography so much as identity, a passionate desire, even an urgent need, to become no one and anyone, to shake off the shackles that remind you who you are, who others think you are.”⁣ ― Rebecca Solnit⁣ ⁣ Canyon exploring. Dust all over the pants. Toothy grin all day long.  @long_rode_home
 “Movement is fundamental to the Universe.” ―Anupama Garg  “We're all building our world, right now, in real time. Let's build it better.”⁣ ―Lindy West⁣ ⁣ Venturing outside La Paz to explore the Valle de La Luna, and spotting some viscacha along the way— a chinchilla-type rodent native to South America.  @misadventures_of_sarah
 “The stars we are given. The constellations we make. That is to say, stars exist in the cosmos, but constellations are the imaginary lines we draw between them, the readings we give the sky, the stories we tell.”⁣ ― Rebecca Solnit⁣ ⁣ Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, and all the way back again. It took three days to get to this flight from the coast in Ecuador, crossing borders and cramming my luggage into tiny mototaxis, but seeing the lights of Lima spread below the moon heading home to Medellín made it all worth it.  “Create. Not for the money. Not for the fame. Not for the recognition. But for the pure joy of creating something and sharing it.” ⁣ ―Ernest Barbaric⁣ ⁣ The alapacas surrounded the hammocks, desperate for the tiny bowls of feed we carried down to the garden.  @misadventures_of_sarah
 “The key to being a warrior is not to be afraid of who you are.” ―Tom Spanbauer  “Nothing is lost. . .Everything is transformed.” ― Michael Ende
