This Monday travel post is very belated, I know. But I have a very good excuse: I spent the weekend in Paris and today I was spending the day with two friends visiting me in Munich, my friend Cécile from Paris and my friend Maria from Cyprus. Whenever I unite with these girls I reminisce about our great and fun times together: we studied in Athens, Greece, and later Cécile and I traveled to Cyprus to visit Maria. Hence most of our common memories are related to the sea – the Mediterranean in our case. And whenever I am spending time with them I remember how much I love to travel to the sea.
During September and October I traveled to the Pacific Northwest and Northern California and I couldn’t get enough of the boundless views of the Pacific Ocean. At the seaside my thoughts and worries, plans and concerns, pondering and decisions seem to disperse into the eternity of the sea. They seem to scatter into numberless pieces and fly over the captivating blue and grey hues, to the horizon and beyond.
Traveling to the sea has a cleansing effect on me. Which is why I have to do it a few times per year. To reboot and refresh my mind, to clear my brain’s cache if you want so. I’ve compiled a few of my favorite sea shots from my last trip to the USA and hope they have a similarly calming and cleansing effect on you, too.
Moreover, I’ve decided to immortalize one of my favorite shots as a canvas and hang it above my bed since my bed nook has a sort of nautical theme. I’ve used the new MyPhotos app by Allposters.de which allows you to turn any iPhone snapshot into an instant piece of art for your home. It’s quick and the quality is really good – so it’s a great way to turn your favorite shots into art or perfect Xmas presents! The MyPhotos app is available on the iTunes store.
