Three hundred kilometers of thoughts

One of the most amazing experiences of my humble life was my three hundred kilometers of thought, when I decided to run away riding a bike.
I was tired of people and parties and I needed to be alone for some time. So one of these days I woke up at 5am to cycle. I left my house toward the next state, without knowing where I was going. I just wanted to cycle.
I had just started down the mountain when I passed by a heavy fog. I didn’t get to see anything, but I couldn’t stop. The road had no space on the sides and I realized how vulnerable we are.
I have stopped a few times to eat, meet some people and talk about something without any importance, but with extreme relevance for my growth. Knowing how life is for that who live in front the highway made me think about how many different kinds of life there are in the world and how it’s rich for a development of the culture around the world.
It took me two days to complete this trip. When I was almost arriving I remembered I had started to cycle only 2 months ago and I had never traveled by bicycle. Now I was cycling 300 km by myself and that made me think about how much effort our body can stand when we really want something to achieve.
In a long trip like this, you have the opportunity to think about everything, but the only thing you can’t think is about desisting.

    300km pra se reencontrar,
    até que estava pertinho, né?
    rs (just kidding)

    Incrível a sua viagem!

    E penso que muito além da viagem em si, a riqueza está em tudo o que você encontrou pelo caminho.

    Poucas pessoas têm essa oportunidade.

    Parabéns xuxu, que essas trips, encontros e reencontros consigo mesmo sejam uma constante em sua vida.
