Alessandro Carpentiero  Travel & Architectural #Photographer ๐Ÿ“ท Traveling full-time๐ŸŒ Now in #Langkawi ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ ___ ๐Ÿ”ฅSingapore WORKSHOPS โคต

Peaceful sunset in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พโœจ
The last 2 weeks in KL really flew; this has been my 3rd time in the city, and I'm sure I'll be back again.
It doesn't have that much to offer for my kind of photography, but there's something I really like about it: it constantly evolves, aiming higher and higher.
__________________________________________
Highlights of my stay:
1) I witnessed the election days, where the opposition (finally) won after 60 years. The population was really happy about it and are looking forward to what's next ๐Ÿ’ช
2) I watched "@avengers Infinity War" (who else did? ๐Ÿ˜ญ) in a huge cinema with moving seats, something that we don't have in Italy.
3) I trained in a running track with locals of every age, from children to elders. It's amazing to see how sport brings everyone together๐Ÿšธ

This full-time traveler thing is making me experience so many little things, that together are creating a beautiful book of memories within myself.
Let's be grateful for the #littlethings of life โœจ

This day, 2 months ago, I left Italy with a one-way flight to South East Asia๐ŸŒ, officially turning "full-time traveler" ๐Ÿ‘ฆ.
It seemed scary at first, but after a few weeks of adjustments, I've started to experience a level of freedom that I never thought possible ๐Ÿ•Š.
All I have with me is a suitcase ๐Ÿ’ผ and a photography trolley ๐Ÿ“ท, but that's all I need to be happy and pursue my ultimate goal: traveling the world to capture its beauty โœจ

Peaceful morning in Istanbul, the only place where you can find a mosque with a unique shape, next to an ultramodern bridge ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ท๐ŸŒ‰ Check my previous post for an epic view of that bridge ๐Ÿ˜Š
.
P.S. That was also the view we had from the restaurant for the farewell dinner with all the old and new friends from @inflowsummits ๐Ÿ˜

Istanbul never ceases to amaze me ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ท
This was my 3rd time visiting the city, and I still could find new areas to explore and photograph ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
Not every city has so much to offer, so if you crave for experiencing a unique mix of cultures, food and landscapes, #Istanbul is for you๐Ÿ˜
Gratitude to @inflowsummits for taking me there all the way from South East Asia๐Ÿ™ and for all the amazing experiences (check my previous post for more) โœจ

Can you believe this was the view from our apartment? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

I'm back to Europe for the whole month of April, and I'm currently exploring Turkey ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ท check out my stories to see what happened during the last few days!
Spoiler alert: I flew on a helicopter, met @nusr_et, saw the biggest tulip "carpet" in the world and had breakfast with Istanbul mayor ๐Ÿ˜ฎ The most epic week!! ๐Ÿ”ฅAll possible thanks to the amazing organization of @inflowsummits ๐Ÿ™

This is what happens when Design & Architecture meet the Jungle. ๐ŸŒดโœจ
I couldn't get enough of my villa at @chapungsebali ๐Ÿ˜

One of my favorite things about #Bali is that there's a place for everyone, thanks to its incredible variety of landscapes: busy beaches, solitary volcanoes, relaxing rice fields, you name it. ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒ‹๐ŸŒพ
And then...there's the #Jungle, a constant reminder of nature's power.
Definitely the perfect location for @chapungsebali, which gently sits on this lush wilderness.

Can you imagine sitting in the middle of the rice fields, having dinner with your other half at a private table surrounded by candles and fireflies? ๐Ÿ˜
We had our anniversary just a few days ago, and this was the absolute perfect way to end the celebrations ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€โคโ€๐Ÿ‘จ
Thanks to @thechediclubtanahgajah for this incredible experience โœจ

Would you wake up to shoot the sunrise or would you rather indulge in your super-comfy bed in one of those villas? ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ˜ช
I faced this very same doubt while staying there at @thechediclubtanahgajah, but no matter how tired I was, there's simply no better feeling than start living a new day together with the sunโ˜€๐ŸŒด

A grain of rice is something so simple ๐ŸŒพ, so tiny that it passes unnoticed in our busy lives.
Still, it takes 6 months to develop and requires a lot of daily care (and water) by the farmers.
How many things do we give for granted in our lives, not knowing how much work and love there's behind them? ๐Ÿ™ˆ
Traveling can really teach us a lot, not just about different cultures, but about Life.
@thechediclubtanahgajah (a @ghmhotels) welcomed me and @absofashionlutely_ for some of our first days as full-time travelers, making us explore their infinite rice fields just behind the property.
Upon checkout we were gifted with a bag of rice, produced by those very same fields & farmers.๐Ÿ˜ฏ
This evening we had dinner with it, and I can tell you it tasted very special, as the special ingredient was Gratitude โœจ

We can choose to be free ๐Ÿ•Š๏ธ
โคต๏ธ
In 15 days I'll hop on a one-way flight, leaving everything behind (except for my gear๐Ÿ“ท, some clothes ๐Ÿ’ผ and my @absofashionlutely_๐Ÿ’‘) to start traveling full-time.
1st month in Bali๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฉ, 2nd month in Malaysia๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ, where to next? We still don't know ๐Ÿค“
Yes it's risky, unknown, scary and blablabla, BUT I've never felt more alive than now as there's nothing better than following your biggest dream โœจ
P.S. I know I've been neglecting Instagram, but I was (still am) trying to pack my life in a suitcase ๐Ÿ™ƒ
