[Travel snippets – TS – a series of reflections on past travels and adventures]
Sometimes there is no other purpose to travel than to relax, rejuvenate, and remind yourself, “Life is good”. To “stop and smell the roses”. To reconnect with all that is good in the world. Sun, sea, and sights. Family, food, and friends.
Instead of running around to the most impressive historical sights, you are taking in the scenic sights. After slow morning starts, heading to the beach for swimming, jet skiing, parasailing, glass-bottom boats, and of course, pool-side food and beverage service – I think you know what I mean by “beverage”.
For those that have the ability to put down the cell phone, forget about the obsession du jour, and focus in on thinking nothing, being in the moment, and going with the flow, a sun and sand travel destination can be a beautiful and critical activity.
