A Different HoneyMoon Trip

It was supposed to be our honey moon trip. Exhausted after wedding parties, all we dreamed about was a peaceful, quiet land full of nature. Cass wanted to go to the wild forest with animals and mushrooms, whereas I longed to sleep on the beach with no trace of humans and their footprints. To see sunrise and sunset, swim at the sea and enjoy pure nature. We choose Moving Dunes at Slowinski National Park by the Polish Baltic coast.

Desert – for some it’s just a huge land of sand, for others home. I have always associated desert with nomad, travelling on their camels from one oasis to another in search for food and water. Brave Bedouins always ready to go for a new and unknown, armed with their belief and hope. They could be a perfect role model for all these who are afraid to take risk and start their life journeys and achieve what they need and desire. Since the Greek Civilization, western society has always admired great warriors, leaders, travellers, painters and writers. All these archetypical heroes who dares to transgress and cross the boarder of either physical or mental or artistic cognition. Society usually forgets about all the rest who remains at their homes and silently struggles to survive. Continue reading India Desert Life
