Hi there!

A little story about myself, I’m a photographer by day who likes to travel, enjoy long hours on a train ride, find luxury in discovering hidden alleys, and shop way more books than clothes. At first, I started this photo blog when I was still in high school (that was around 6 years ago) as a virtual journal to combine my love of photography and to share stories with people.

As much as I breathe the mantra to always live in the present, there’s always a time when I like to recall a specific moment in my life and that is when this personal space plays a really huge part of what I’d like to call some sort of “sanctuary”. It’s where I can always return and feel at ease, by making sure my eyes and feet visit new places every now and then.

"What we find exotic abroad may be what we hunger for in vain at home." is my favorite line from Alain De Botton that I can relate whenever I go visit new places and also the inspiration behind this blog title: closer to home.

Some of the things that you can find on this blog are definitely my travelogue, work-in-progress, personal thoughts, and a space to help promote the value of community & people that I meet along the way (in this case, mostly sharing experiences of locals during my travel, and people/friends who inspire me with what they do).

If you happen to be a loyal reader (thank you!), I hope you like the new face of this blog. And for those of you who are new to this blog, I hope you get on board!
