Friendships are hard.

The lifestyle we created for ourselves is awesome, but it has it’s downsides too. One of those for me has been friendship. It’s amazing to travel the world with musicbylukas because he is my best friend. And hanging & talking with him is so much fun. But it’s just us…every day…for most of the year. As humans I think we need more human connection. I know I do, especially that of another girl. There are just some things Lukas can’t relate too. haha. And having a girlfriend you can talk to and hang out with [in person] is everything to me. ♥️ Having my friend Shannon come and visit me on my travels is a highlight every year. She first came last year to London, and this year she came to visit me in Amsterdam. It can be exhausting, of course, to host a friend in town, but it is also exhilarating! I love all the friends we’ve made on our travels of course, but it is different when you’ve been friends with someone since you were 6 years old. You have so much history and you know so much about each other. You’ve stayed up late on countless nights for years and years chatting about literally everything. They know you so well, and you can talk about anything and laugh and laugh. That is what it felt like for the time she was here. And it was so nice to have it in my life again, even if it’s just for a little while. While she was in town she celebrated her Birthday. I'm not a huge "gift-giver". I show my love through filming memories and creating lasting videos for the person. So my present to her was a mini-movie of her Birthday, where we rented a boat and cruised the canals plus played a special surprise DJ set for her! It was a great day.
