I started reading the second book since I’m travelling. Six months on the road and I just finished one book. I usually love reading books, but days are too short. Even here in Southamerica.

#day61 – my book of wisdom

Wise quotes are a thing, I’m extremely keen about. And I don’t keep it as a secret. I guess my friends are already a bit annoyed by all the wise words I have for nearly every situation in life. But when I’m convinced, I want to spread it. My all-time favorit quote is one of Pablo Picasso: […]
