“I CAN HARNESS POWER FROM THE OCEAN TO HELP ME FACE WHAT’S TO COME”
“I’ve been planning this trip for half a year.
I wanted to celebrate my 30th birthday hiking the south-west coast of Portugal and no virus could stop me. We went ahead with it against all warnings and I found myself and my friend, mostly just the two of us and mostly in the middle of nowhere.
We’re self-isolating but in a different context. Reading the news every morning and every night, what’s happening in the world seems unreal compared to how life runs its course here. Everything seems to be fair away while on trail and the villages are unbothered. I’m experiencing everything as fully as I can because I know reality will hit me soon and it might be a hard blow.
Thankfully I can harness power from the ocean to help me face what’s to come.”
