Year 4 | Steady My Heart

Hey you,

This has been the most steady you’ve been for years this travel blog existed. Every year, you’ve been telling yourself to go slow with travel, and focus on more settled. Because though travel feeds the passion that drives you to “live life” as what the outside world portrays, you have long realized that it has placed some of your non-travel dreams on hold, and somehow those dreams had started to hunt you.

I headed to Agora Bus Terminal and decided to get a few hours of sleep at WinMin Transient Inn.
