Heidi From the Mountain

Hi! Welcome to my curated smattering of ramblings and photo dumps! I'm a 20-something Generation Y kid and this is where I like to throw photos, links, and words from time to time. Usually they're to do with upcoming or past adventures and travels. Sometimes I'll post what's inspiring me or cool things I'm learning. Enjoy and flip through these babies as well:

DOHA NIGHT SKYLINE by A-alkhaldi

Tonight was the last class of my (first) undergrad! I submitted my final paper and am now breaking up with eighteenth-century literature for an indefinite (read: lengthy) period of time.
The sunny freedom of August is looming and I think the message in my bottle cap is right: there are good times ahead!

The most memorable day of the few years of my childhood lived in the United States: spelling class interrupted to go to the common room and watch the news. I had no idea what the “twin towers”, the World Trade Centre, or the Pentagon were or meant and was too embarrassed to ask when all the kids around me knew. I also didn’t know what terrorism was. Three years later I was in London with my family the day of those bombings. It’s entirely surreal to 12.5 years after September 11, 2001 go through airport-style security to see this massive pool and the thousands of names it memorializes. I didn’t personally know anyone in any of the attacks but I’m still working to process the shock, confusion and sadness evoked by these childhood initiations to what belies the humanity I still would like to believe in.

Empire Hotel.

Concrete Jungle, can’t wait to meet you.

I don’t know if there is anywhere in the world more perfect for Instagram than Havana, Cuba.
