DESCRIPTION

The Tokyo wanderlust journal is photojournalist amalgamation of my experiences in Tokyo in Shibuya, Shinjuku, Daikanyama and places I cant even pronounce properly. I travelled by foot, trains and buses, collecting papers, souvenirs and memories with every step I took. Some areas were lively and some boring, some beautiful, some spiritual and some plain generic, but all in all, a deep insight into the overlapping layers of memories and cultures of the city.

    The Wanderlust is the strong de-sire to explore. I have to admit, I have been bitten by the bug and have spent the past 12 months on an epic impulsive adventures in the South East Asian region.

    As I explored my wanderlust in Tokyo, my mind is flooded with all the lessons learned.

    I admit my journey was self-in-dulgent. It was designed by me, for me (although I got to share it with lots of cool and amazing peo-ple along the way). But that was the purpose. I wanted to stretch myself, I wanted to explore and I wanted to gain new perspectives that would have a real impact on

    both my personal and profes-sional life.

    Exploring Tokyos bohemian en-claves and historical quarters and discovering its fascinating subcultures, quirky shops, hip cafes and sublime night-life was a myriad of unadulterated fasci-nating experiences.

    I let my emotions guide my jour-ney, taking a left or a right in-stinctively as I wandered on, dis-covering roads, lanes, people and cultures.

    The elegance of the aimless wan-dering with its many firsts, are part of the golden age of explora-

    tory travel. I wouldnt trade my memories for anything - even those that are tragic or frighten-ing. For me, the love of discovery will always be a crucial part of who I am.

    It feels like its in my bones.

    This wanderlust journal is pho-tojournalist amalgamation of my experiences in Tokyo in Shibuya, Shinjuku, Daikanyama and places I cant even pronounce properly. I travelled by foot, trains and bus-es, collecting papers, souvenirs and memories with every step I took. Some areas were lively and some boring, some beautiful, some spiritual and some plain generic, but all in all, a deep in-sight into the overlapping layers of memories and cultures of the city.

    There are places youve never seen, people youve never met, foods youve never tasted, adven-tures youve never had and you wont be able to do it all, but if you start right now, you can make a dent. Explore new territories.

    Make new memories. Be a Wanderlust.

    On my last day I was headed down from Tokyo to a little town called Kanagawa to experience a quaint japanese town . On the way there, I noticed the sky was full of clouds & the sun was starting to lower in the sky.I went into sunset-chaser mode, and I made an impromptu detour and meandered through the city to a place where the town opens up to the Ocean. I was rewarded with a breathtaking sunset with bands of shimmering gold, orange & pink. I was mesmerized asI soaked in every moment until the sun slipped out of sight, dropping below the horizon.
