So often when travelling, we find ourselves in a place or situation so unique and humbling that it feels impossible to capture it in a mere photograph or video. But we try nonetheless!
So, you’ve booked your holiday of a lifetime, there’s beautiful beaches, clear waters and perhaps even a reef – this is the perfect time to grab your snorkelling gear and go exploring! But you’ve never snorkelled before…
As the boat neared the mooring point, their relaxed state shifted to a state of excitement… The humans are coming!!! Enthusiastic little whiskered faces peered up towards the boat and one by one the sea lions shuffled themselves into the water.
Travelling has to be one of the most exciting and rewarding things you can do; exposure to new cultures, different climates and more often than not, the challenge of having to compete not only with a language barrier, but a cultural one too.
So here’s the thing, everyone tells you to go travelling but what nobody tells you is the bit after the ‘happily ever after’ – The blunt ending that struts in straight afterwards to castrate it all. All those perception-altering, mind-blowing experiences. The heart-achingly beautiful sense of natural freedom you had as you struggled through communication and cultural barriers. That feeling of our oneness as a human race that thrives in you as you tried desperately to break those barriers down. The realisation that, in many situations there are people who are genuinely ready to help you.
