These photos were taken in December, last Christmas, back in Portugal with the usual girl gang. Memorable holidays, marvellous surroundings, inspiring atmosphere. Going back home always feels like a brand new experience, as I absorb the essence of some places differently every single time. I escape reality by entering this realm of beauty, nature, tranquility and rediscovery. Those locations seem so distant now, yet so familiar. I want to carry the Atlantic and the shells and the soothing sound of waves with me forever. This reminds me of how much I need to start exploring the Irish West Coast, to make up for the absence of what I used to take for granted once upon a time in that country that brings sensorial memories of the smell of grilled swordfish on charcoal, warm wine after forgetting the bottle in the backseat of a car, fresh garlic being washed off my hands with blue and white soap.
Note: These photos were taken in Sagres » Praia do Beliche » Praia do Amado » Praia da Amoreira.
