“Wandering is the activity of the child,
the passion of the genius;
it is the discovery of the self,
the discovery of the outside world,
and the learning of how the self is both "at one with" and "separate from" the outside world.
These discoveries are as fundamental to the soul as "learning to survive" is fundamental to the body.
These discoveries are essential to realizing what it means to be human.
To wander is to be alive.”

I spent this saturday with my dad on Brijuni island. When I was younger, I would spend all my weekends with him. He used to work in Italy, so he would only be home on fridays, and I was always looking forward to wake up on a saturday morning, 'cause I knew we're gonna go somewhere together. We would go for walks, by the beach, I was always decorating my room for that season, so we would collect leafs and pinecons, rocks, flowers.. Yup, I was (am) a nerd, and he was always sweet enough to join me in those weird ideas. :)
Now that I'm older, we rarely spend that much time together, so it was so nice to be somewhere by ourselves. We rode around for hours, stopped to see all the animals, ruins, took lots of photos (he's my kinda guy, I tell him to take a photo - he takes 15 :)), ate pizza and had coffee while we watched the sun set. It was a great day. :)
It just reminded me that he's not only a great father, but just a great human in general. He's so chill and joyful and so kindhearted, it makes me so proud that he's my dad.
He always has been, and always will be one of my best friends in life.
