A few weeks ago I received a shocking email saying that the wedding Dan and I were supposed to attend in Las Vegas this summer was called off (loooong story). After talking about it for a while, and since we couldn’t get our money back if we cancelled our flight booking, we decided to enjoy the trip anyway and change our plane tickets to explore a new city in the US (we had been to Vegas twice already, so we didn’t necessarily want to go back again). First of all, we thought about flying to Seattle or Portland since we both have been dying to visit those cities for a long time now, but unfortunately the flights were too expensive. After considering our options, we finally decided to go to Miami – beach, palms, sun, relax time… sounded just perfect. Plus after living in California for almost a year, I was dying to see the ocean again!
The first thing we did after checking in at the hotel was to put our swimsuits on and go straight to the pool. For half of the day, we laid out, dipped in the pool and enjoyed the feeling of the sun warming our skin. A relaxing day of doing absolutely nothing but listen to music, enjoy food and conversations was exactly what we needed. After that peaceful moment, we went back to our room to change our clothes and head off to the beach at Fort Lauderdale to have a nice walk while watching the sunset set beautifully.
I’m pretty sure at this point that the beach is where I belong. When I am surrounded by water, feeling the sea breeze tingling my body and getting lost in my thoughts while staring at the thin blue line on the horizon, I have the overwhelming sensation that I found my place; where I am supposed to be. I can’t explain it with words, but to me there is something very special about the ocean that makes me feel incredibly happy, motivated and energized.
I wish you all a wonderful Thursday! 🙂
