The stories of my life on a little island in the middle of the Mediterranean sea ... and my occasional adventures beyond these shores.

Blissful Serenity

It’s August. It’s hot. And the humidity is reaching unbearable  levels. Escaping to the beach is the wisest thing to do. But it gets so crowded at this time of year, tourists and locals everywhere, and our beaches are so small.

There are days when peace and quiet are essential for my sanity. So that’s when it’s important to walk that extra mile, climb over those obstructing rocks, make that extra effort – to escape the noise and the chatter and to find a blissful pocket of serenity. Then to let the lapping water soothe the senses while drinking in the silence.

Such are the small pleasures of a Mediterranean summer. While some welcome the thronging crowds with open arms, I always choose to escape.  To calm the senses, recharge the batteries and revive the soul.
