Arrows and candles

For some odd reason, I came to think of Nietzsche and his “arrows of longing for the other shore”. Each candle is made by a child growing in Umeå, reminding me of where I can never go.

But in terms of spatial rather than temporal journeys, 2018 has already come to an end. In total, I racked up just over 70k miles which is about ten thousand more than last year, taking me everywhere from Austin to Jerusalem. This year, I was able to add not only four new countries but a whole new continent to my travels. Among the new countries, Russia was perhaps the most overdue and, no matter how short the trip was, it will definitely stay with me.
