Roswell and the Truth About Aliens

Roswell and the Truth About Aliens

“The coolest part about Roswell is the way in which almost the entire city has embraced its strange alien-reputation. Every shop, whether they sell electronics or hand-made soaps has found even the smallest way of incorporating the little green guys into their aesthetic and offerings.”

Road Map of a Broken Heart

“You lose things when you travel, no matter how tight your packing-game may be or how many times you’ve triple-checked the hotel room. I’ve lost a lot of things throughout this journey.
