As my undergrad career came to a close and I burrowed in academic research, the unique way that experiences translate in my mind began to make much more sense: I have a thing for nostalgia.
Everything I see and participate in somehow transforms into a massive chain of memories, thoughts, and sensory experiences that trace to various other experiences in my life, or imagined experiences that I would like to have.
When I travel, I obsess with the heart of place and people, spending my time unstructured, wandering, meeting, talking, discovering, observing, and feeling the pulse of the old soul buried under a modernized image.
I’ve grown obsessed with nostalgia, and hope to get you hooked, too.
Finally, I have my first publication, and on my favorite topic! It’s entitled “Nostalgia: A (post)modern journey through Europe.” EntreMares Magazine was absolutely wonderful to work with, and they have a great purpose and vision for their publications. All of their material is fantastic.
I invite you to read my essay and browse through the gallery of select photos of my travels to get a taste of how nostalgia drives my travel experiences. I welcome your comments.
