Okay, I’ll admit it! 2020 has not been our year yet. If you’re here, you most probably want to take a deep breath of fresh air during all the Covid19 noise, which does not seem to have an end in the near future.

I do believe there is a serious situation going on, and I’m not trying to minimize its severity. I simply need a pause from all the negativity that’s constantly invading my feed and my thoughts.
I decided to break the circle and share with you a couple of my go-to quotes when down and some of my favorite photos I took during my travels, let’s not forget how beautiful our planet is.
