i met this parrot on the day before embarking on a 6-day boat ride down the napo river. i remember it was cursing a lot. i remember thinking what bad character he had. but soon i realised that a parrot only echoes what he hears. don’t we all? I thought then. bad behaviour spreads like infectionous disease. luckily beauty is highly contagious too. the parrot’s feathers resound the wild exhilarating colours of the amazon jungle. it’s language might be contaminated, but at least it’s still damn pretty in a picture.

Hey there, I'm Lau. Originally Dutch, travelling the world like a nomad. I try to be open and appreciative towards the splendour of the places that I see and the people that I meet, wherever I may find myself. Some think I'm slow. Compared to some other travellers, indeed I like to take my time. Also at home, I believe in a somewhat slower lifestyle. If you're into that, I invite you to armchair journey with me!
