A BOHEMIAN TRAVELLER...

A Canadian named Kasel Yamashita.

He was a traveler. We met twice, in Thailand and then Malaysia.

He's back in Canada now. At the end of each phase of his adventure, he would send email to people. I would like to share the last paragraph of the email:

 

" so strange driving up the road towards terrace. i've been to remarkable places, i've met remarkable people, but coming down that road i was excited to see the mountains pulling themselves up on the horizon. the spectacular sunset to the west offering perfect lighting to the skeena river and it's surrounding mountains. nothing like the snowcapped summer peaks to really tell you you're back. but if i'm back, how can i feel this distant from where i am? obviously i don't really exist in this world."

 

I really enjoyed reading that email...

I know that each time I travel anywhere in the future, even for a fleeting moment, my mind would wander to Kasel Yamashita, a Canadian I met for such short time but I’m so certain I will never see again nor ever forget… Coz… Terima kasih…

Life goes on…
