Don't travel as a form of escapism because whatever you're running away from is in you, and will follow you until you face it.

Patrick and I have become good friends. Very interesting conversations, good moments of silence, respect for the other's space. We ride together or meet up someplace along the way. I'm a solo traveller, but sometimes it feels very good to have company, and to visit this dazzling city during the night you're better off with a friend - especially if you're shooting and not paying much attention to where you go (not to mention not knowing how to go back to the place where you're staying...)
