#International: Viagem Vida — Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil is the first country that I’ve visited. And I’ve learnt so many things about their culture, seen so many beautiful places, tasted most of their local delicacies, and met few awesome people along the journey. I had so much traveling and wandering around Rio, I’d the chance to explore the streets and found some interesting things around.

I’m not really a photographer, I just love to take random photographs of things that interests me; and by doing this, I can express myself and at the same time capture the precious moments along the way.

I love traveling and wandering around. I think that we should go wander for some time and set aside all the stress with our work and/or with those negative things around us. Traveling let’s you experience life and culture of every destination you are going to. You’ll have the chance to have so much memories that you will treasure for the rest of your life. Step out of your comfort zone and try going out to places that you wan to go, even to those places that only few people have visited.

Life is an on-going adventure, and you don’t want to spend the rest of it to just sit around, live in a stressful environment. I think life is meant to live with, by living it I mean to explore it.

I still have so many things to learn, so many stuff to experience, so many places to visit, and so many awesome people to meet. From the day of writing this, I commit myself to live my life to an adventure that I’ll never regret in the future. Let’s all explore the world and see what God has in store for us.

These are some photos I’ve taken a long my journey and will add more to this soon…
