LES PASSAGES AND THE PALAIS ROYAL, HEART OF PARIS

This Is It
Dull, wet and bleak. That’s what the outside world holds for me right now. It’s 5:45 AM, I’ve had 4 hours sleep, maximum, yet I’ve never felt so alive.

01:00 AM, and I’ve struggled to get to sleep for the past 3 hours. Tossing and turning, rolling round and round in my own pool of sweat. The heat of yesterday still lingering in the air, my bed now 1029384 degrees. The temperature is unbearable. Continue reading “Croatia: Beauty at My Fingertips”
Moisture in the air, windows cloudy, skin damp. The morning sun poking its way through droplet paths as they slide down. 5:30 AM never looked so appealing. Eyes stinging from the distortion of time. We wipe ourselves down and make a plan for the day ahead. The choices for today, Coast or Lake?
