Lover of photography, metropolitan cities, culture, foodie, but who never took a leap of faith to join the “sharing is caring” movement on the web. My motto:
Everything Big Starts Small.
Born and raised in Cameroon, precisely in the capital Yaounde, I left my country as soon as I was done with high school. I lived in Cyprus, where I studied my Bachelor in Hotel Management. I do currently reside in Germany, where I came to finalize my studies in Master in International Tourism Management.
I was pretty much focused on my studies before I came in Germany. Therefore, while in Cyprus, I did not fully explore the beautiful land and what it had to offer, first due to my “introvert-ish” attitude back then and other concerns. But living in Germany and, sharing a flat with only German mates the first years of my arrival, made me value the “You only live once” concept. My flat mates happened to be very lively, extrovert and, would drive me in their cars to visit neighboring cities; which I enjoyed and sometimes miss.
After a while, I moved out and went to live in Mainz, a city I fell in love with the moment I stepped in. But, it is the arrival of my cousin from the US for holidays back in 2014 and his solo traveler attitude, that made me to quickly want to adopt the mind of a tourist. I discovered a lot with him than when I was here by myself. With the mind of a tourist, you are challenged to getaway from your daily routine. You are curious and eager to discover. It makes you become more appreciative of where you are. I then understood that we oftentimes fail to realize how needless it is to plan for big trips abroad, once you understand that you are surrounded by interesting and beautiful things right where you are.
Plus, I always have a pen+a journal to write down ideas or thoughts. I also love to carry with me, my camera to record myself or to snap a picture.
Why not blogging then?
Here I am starting!
By definition, Untapped refers to any resources that is available but not used; and a blessing is considered to be a gift, a treasure.
Hence, I chose Untapped Blessings because for me, it represents the gift of shared experience and the perception that I get from exploring anything that this world has to offer to us, but that we tend to overlook or take for granted:
With this blog, I intend to transfer through my photography and my writing, the genuine feeling that I get from the places I visit. I believe that the first impression of a place is always worth capturing and remembering. I also wish to showcase the ideas of the places to be at, activities to do while there, and to inspire people such as:
Of course it all depends on one’s area of interest 🙂
As Lao Tzu once said:
“A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.”
I believe it only make sense once one starts:
I hope it does make sense to you! If yes, then stick around!
