Nothing to Declare…
No custom offices, no biometrics.
No stamped identities, no bags.
Just walking the earth as it was meant to be.
Without luggage, tickets or tags.


My religion is to live and die without regret. My religion is to not wait for tomorrows. My religion is to plunge into change, move with it, and to live the experience. My religion is the moment.
