During my exchange semester i fell in love and i wanted to stay as long as possible in the us. I organised a trip to Nicaragua to exit the country to reenter again and get 90 more days of stay. Since I did not have enough cash to afford paying the rent, the plan was to move into my boyfriends place. One week before i had to move out of my house -we broke up.
When i am really down I sometimes need to do something extremely good to bring everything in balance again. Since a few years One of my favourite things in the world is getting myself on the road and hangout with strangers. So I crashed at friends places and couch surfed in Los Angeles and after Nicaragua I decided to drive alone from LA to Portland. With still 8 more weeks to survive, I never slept in a hotel. When I am travelling i am always finding the right people and a lot of weird stuff happens. With this in mind I started to film myself.
The art was to bring all those pieces together and create a storyline that makes sense because the most adventures are missing. At some point i simply stopped filming myself for a while. Which sucks.
But i don't care if it’s incomplete, always shaky and sometimes a little unsharp. I made this video to remind myself who i am, when i need it. I made this video for you as a inspiration and motivation to leave your comfort zone, discover the world, enjoy life, be more open and have shit lot’s of fun.
oh and yeah for my next trip i bring a small point and shoot with HD to record more. :)
