I’ve started collecting leaves almost every day and pressing them in the books I carry with me so I can one day write my number on them and give them to people I meet who I want to be friends with.


walked home with flowers and coffee in hand and thought ‘what a beautiful life i am allowed to live’

Never say 'no' to adventures. Always say 'yes', otherwise you’ll lead a very dull life.

Alexander von Humboldt (1769–1859), a Prussian explorer, traveled in Cuba, Mexico, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela. The illustrations of his books demonstrate a wide range of representational methods, with elements of scientific illustration often inserted into landscapes. Mount Chimborazo, in Ecuador, held particular interest for him. This image documents plants that occur at specific locations on the peak. It also includes information about the ascent of the mountain—such as “The travellers began to bleed from the eyes, the lips & gums”—and comparative information about the heights of other mountains. This fascinating image combines elements of a travel account with botanical and geological information, and is a fine example of Humboldt’s interest in the “unity of nature.”
