I know the year is not over yet but I can confidently say these past two days have been my best days of 2018. Lost in the middle of Myanmar, we did a 2 days boat tour around Inle Lake and got to witness the daily life of locals in many ways. An entire village built only on water: no streets, no cars, no supermarkets, no internet but a different yet beautiful reality to discover. Nature embraces you, people genuinely smile at you, the lake gives you inner peace and all of a sudden you disconnect with the world and reconnect with yourself. I felt incredibly grateful and lucky to be able to live this right moment - it may be silly but in the rushing of the daily life it is something that unfortunately I don't really stop to think about. I was fulfilled with emotions and caught by the unconventional beauty of this land. Traveling makes me want to speak out my emotions but as much as I try to find the words, as much as I try shooting the perfect picture, nothing comes closer to the feeling that places like this bring about.
This picture may mean nothing to you, however it represents most people's life from Inle lake village. Every single day, from 6:00am to 5:00pm men go out in the lake and spend their entire days alone, fishing, to earn some money. How far is this way of living from our way of living? #liveinthemoment#righthererightnow#grateful
