I do not know what it is about islands, but there is just something so calming about a piece of land completely surrounded by the ocean. I love the coastline and its salty air – the warm wind and lapping waves crashing against the shore, pulling sand back into it’s depths, and doing it all over again.
Although I do feel like a big city girl at heart, part of me feel so at peace when in tropical places like Puerto Rico. I love carrying sand with me everywhere, getting around in just a pair of flip-flops, and letting the sun dry my hair.
Part of me feels that my life is tied to Berlin – not in some negative against-my-will sort of way, but in a way that just tells me my time in Berlin is not going to be finished for a while. Still I really hope that I get the opportunity to spend some of my life in a place where the distant sound of the ocean replaces the distant sound cars driving by at all hours of the night.
