“Exister, c’est être là, simplement”



Well..where to start. I was inspired to entitle my blog  <<L’Existense de Sarah>> from the French philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre. For my travels will be not only be my day to day life of existing, but a challange to myself to find more meaning in my existence. The idea that there is no meaning to be found in the world beyond what meaning we give to it, is a perfect example of Sartre. I want to be able to put more meaning to the world, by getting a better sense of who I am. I’ve always imagined stepping onto foreign soil will automatically change the way I think. It may sound very naive, but being in an unknown place, forces you to know yourself, because well, you don’t know anything else. Finding differences in people is the easiest way to know yourself more, because it’s usually little things you didn’t even think  of. Pulling apart the language, the culture, the scenery, the aroma of the air, all to the way the people carry themselves when they walk, are all differences I cannot wait to learn.
