You, for me were an ocean and I guess I'm okay with drowning.
Some of my most favorite moments in Scotland, were the days spent on the northern Scottish Island of Skye, one of my many solo trips while living in Scotland. Peppered with mountains and lochs(lakes) and blessed with capricious weather, it was easily the most tranquil and spectacular of places, with dramatic landscapes and eery atmosphere all around. Along with spectacular places, what kept company were the many tales, legends on many parts of the Highlands- a region steeped in history and legend and many friends that were made as a part of the tour group. .
This beach- Staffin beach, was super cold and as much I enjoyed spending those moments taking in the views and the feel, I regretted it later as my face felt completely frozen and numb. :D I left it in about twenty minutes, but in a way haven't left the place at all.
On a similar note, travelling to our memories-
I wish to travel today.
So, let me get my bag and clothes
Or let me sit here with memories
And travel all alone.

„If I‘m an advocate for anything, it’s to move. As far as you can, as much as you can. Across the ocean, or simply across the river. The extent to which you can walk in someone else’s shoes or at least eat their food, it’s a plus for everyone. Open your mind, get up off the couch, move.“ - Anthony Bourdain 💙🌏
