It is difficult to be able to describe your experiences and think that your thoughts are general and apply to all walks of life. I have been travelling the world for just over 15 years now, years in which I’ve seen many amazing and sad things. This blog is just an attempt to share what the world means to me and share my interests. All my posts are nothing more than my own opinion.
Let me introduce myself. My name is Wagner, but better know as Cabeça, an unfortunate childhood nickname that stuck. After 16 years in Europe, I returned to Brazil to teach secondary school, an old dream that I am finally realising!
I love meeting new people, increase my circle of friends. Always welcome the new, but keeping the old ones always around. From my own still brief life experience, there are two ways to make new friends: Travelling and food parties. Know how to travel, you will be able to share your experiences and learn a lot from others; know how to cook, everyone will want to try your food!
I do not travel with a purpose, to try to find myself, try to do one same thing in every place I go… I always found that travelling with a purpose constrained what I could do, as I never know what kind of experience my destinations will have to offer me. I have a Lagrangian approach to travel, I observe from where the place takes me.
Science plays a major role in my life, but I will mention it briefly. We live in a changing world, which makes it perhaps even more interesting. Climatologically speaking, economically speaking, culturally speaking, the world is ever evolving and the place you visit today will probably not be the same in 20 years, making travelling an infinite loop, a box full of surprises!
The name of my blog “The World is a Windmill” is the direct translation from a song by one of my favourite composers: Cartola. What this phrase means to me is that the world is constantly revolving around its axis, constantly changing everything from one form to the other… what we see now won’t be the same very soon, so experience the now before it changes!
