Almost all places I visit are gems in their own right, but the real ones — they’re often the ones that I either had no idea about or had little to no expectations of.

A few are frequently observed and seen on a daily basis but not considered impressive — SSDD to many eyes; other gems begin initially as merely figments of my imagination when they were mentioned in a novel or in classical and contemporary literature — only to become a-sort-of-fiction-turned-reality type experience.

Curiosity, wanderlust, and the yearning to explore and discover.  To document what is not necessarily new to the world, but new to me.
