As I sit outside the gate of my flight to Fiji I am confronted by the reality that the coming months of my life will all be new and challenging, which is both daunting and exciting. My journey started in LA over the past 10 days, but that stay felt as if it was a vacation from which I would return home, even though I knew that was not the reality. I had a great time getting to know the city and the people I was spending time with. Exploring the vast expanse of LA by bike gave me a good taste of the city as a whole while also making it evident how little of the city I actually saw. Over the course of my 10 days there, I saw beautiful architecture, art and music, had profound experiences with nature, and confronted the impact human existence has on the natural world, all of which I will try and reflect through my pictures. Here are some of my photos:
I was sad to leave LA, but now, as I am wrapping up this post from my bed in Christchurch, New Zealand, I find that I am even more excited about the times I have ahead of me. I’ll do my best to keep those who are reading this up to date through my journey.
