“Every second of the search is an encounter with God,” the boy told his heart. “When I have been truly searching for my treasure, every day has been luminous, because I’ve known that every hour was a part of the dream that I would find it. When I have been truly searching for my treasure, I’ve discovered things along the way that I never would have seen had I not had the courage to try things that seemed impossible for a shepherd to achieve.”
– From The Alchemist
The Road to Bromo
I wanted to go on exchange because I wanted to see the world. I wanted to touch deserts and see how it meets the open sky. Going to Indonesia wasn’t what I planned but it’s incredible because I dreamt of seeing this scene a million times over in my head and I can’t believe I actually saw it.
It was as if the place knew that I saw it a thousand times before and that it was just as excited to come face to face with me.
