“Possibility of a new route” picture accidentally taken by me during one of my many walk – here I was in New Zealand – April 2013 

One step ahead the other and you can walk through miles… every new route has to begin with just one step and every new happening is a new possibility! Who knows what’s next?!

Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.”  ― Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi.

“Beginning a new life” picture taken by me during my flight to New Zealand – April 2013

 

I took this picture during my flight to New Zealand. I bought “Shantaram” few weeks before the flight, some friends spoken me about this book and I was so curios to read it that I almost couldn’t resist. But I was determined to read it during my journey, so I finally started the book during my flight from Rome to Auckland…. I did had time ahead! But truth is… I’ve never read that much about it, and not because I didn’t like it, but just because I was so excited and focused on the present moment that I didn’t wanted to be taken away from it. So I leave the book in my backpack and I lived the moment, every moment, just focusing on what I felt, perceived and experienced.
Finally doing this trip, has been the achievement of bigger dream of my life. I did it after a very hard period of my life, full of changes, difficulties and a questioning deeply myself. This was my first solo travel and definitely a milestone in my personal growth and new life beginning.
So finally… that journey was the exact moment when my real life began!
