Yourself

Was considering writing yesterday night when I got back, but I was very tired. Wanted to sleep on an actual bed. in a house with central heating, rather than an airbed in a tent. Was great to be behind brick walls again.

We had a fun time though, most fun I’ve had in a short while. Time away from my PC was just what I needed… even though I’m now glued to it again. Save me.

But then again, not much beats a short walk on the beach every night, the occasional swim in the water when it doesn’t freeze you to your bones. It was cold, windy and humid, but I liked it. The sun setting over the crimson sea that stretched out to the horizon as far as the eye could see was somewhat breath-taking. You get an entirely different feel than from Google images.

Tell you what is strange though; It’s strange to think that when you sit on the sand, staring out just above the ocean, you’re staring at another coastline that you can’t see. And it’s likely that someone on that coastline is glaring right back at you, perhaps even waving in the wind… and you’d never know about it.

Pull up a map, and the countries don’t look too far apart. So it’s kinda crazy to stare up from that map and see just how much of a difference the 1cm : 5km ratio makes.
