The sea was crystal clear


I took a break and flew away from the rain.
My destination was a sunny place where crickets were noisy, the sun burned on your shoulders and flowers were blooming.
It's always an experience to travel, even though I didn't explore a new world this time. You always bring new ideas with you and once you're in a new environment, everything looks completely different...


It was a place were you felt you could meet the most fabulous people on the corner of the street. And even if you don't, the place radiates glamour, opportunities, and just the idea it is possible is exciting and thrilling.
It makes you feel that everything is possible, there are no limits and you are free to go your own way.
It's a lovely feeling.

I found little treasures everywhere. If you look closely, things are so much more as they seem at first sight.
For me, that is what life stands for: Everything is beautiful, everything can deceive you and most of all, everything can and should surprise you.
If you wonder about things that seem normal, they usually turn into something very special. It might seem childish, but I think this is a thing which kids should be praised for: their inquisitiveness and their innocent tendency to take nothing for normal, but accept everything as it is without prejudices.

The views of the horizon were great. The idea of the horizon going on forever and leading to new places where new adventures can be survived... it makes me realize I have seen so little of what there is to see and that I want to discover everything there is.
I want to understand, to see, to be a part of it instead of staying here dreaming of what there might be on the other side.
Our fate is to explore, to live and learn to love and be loved and if you never take the chance, you'll never know what there is to find...


I love the sea, for it makes me feel free and light as a feather when I feel the waves lifting me up and dropping me down. The salt drying on your skin, the hot sand beneath your feet, the sound of the wind... That's what makes me feel sunny too.
And the idea of swimming towards the horizon, to all these adventures, it's a dream.
But it surely is a lovely one.

Au revoir and with love,

When she was just a girl she expected the world
But it flew away from her reach
So she ran away in her sleep
And dreamed of para-para-paradise
Everytime she closed her eyes

Life goes on, it gets so heavy
The wheel breaks the butterfly
Every tear a waterfall
In the night, stormy night she closed her eyes
In the night the stormy night
Away she flied….
