A native of Gary, Indiana, a working class community. Working long hours, attending various community meetings and a single father, it’s not uncommon that on my way hone, I contemplate what I want to stop and pickup at one of the fast food drive throughs. This is the basic way of life here.
My name is Kabin and this is my story. Strap in!
What happens when you look at the map?... you start realizing all the places you haven't been to, all the places you haven't seen, all the people you haven't met, all the pictures you haven't taken. Well that is exactly what I think anyways... Every time I take a look at a map or a globe my mind starts to wonder, it wonders what i would do in each place I set my eyes on, what kind of food they would have, what do their streets smell like??
BULGARIAN TOWN MEZDRA, A MOZAIC OF OLD AND NEW MEMORIES
What you are about to read may help you begin seeing the synchronicities that occur in your life on a daily basis.
Now. This is the moment of a big change in your life. You are just a teenager and you don't really pay much attention to the decision making. You barely even realise that once you're out - it will get harder and harder to come back...
Every time I step out to travel, I say to myself, "I don't want to stop, its too addicting”. It's a drug that can't be sold or made. If you're wondering how you can obtain it, you just have to live it. Nike and Mandy are doing just that. Exploring the balkans in a way that most would shy away from. Hitchhiking with random strangers to their next destination, sleeping on the couches of people they met on the internet or camping out in random spots they find in the cites.

I will start off by stating that the city sleeps eventually. There can be lights & sounds but the does sleep at some point. That being said there’s something for everyone at any time. Yeah, sure I said it eventually sleeps but most of the things to do become exclusive to those whom are associated with (friends & activities included).
This photo was taken on January 24th, 2020 in Ridgecrest, California. I used a measly 8mp camera and a pre-installed filter named 'Palma' to edit on a very cracked screen. My cheap prepaid phone is one of four phones I have had in the past three months. Let us just say material items and I have not been meshing very well.
Do you ever wake up a bit exhausted, even after a lengthy night’s sleep? You move over to the edge of the bed and sit there a while? Do you begin reliving the past days, months and years, accepting that surely today would be just like another day in the past few years. Why would it be any different? You’re not different, so what would make this day any different to all the other days. You haven’t done anything differently. You make the same choices each day, the poor ones. You always go for what is easier or quicker. Whatever brings you comfort, whatever makes you forget temporarily that this is your reality!!! Whatever will make you feel good, that’s where its all at. Except that it is momentary. Well maybe the challenge is to make it last longer… Should you even bother leaving the room today? Do you wish you had a copy of yourself, someone to go through the day for you? Why would today be any different? Why does today deserve your attention, your presence? What is today even?? Follow the story and you will see how I got here and how I got out…
