THE SEA, THERAPY FOR THE MIND, BODY AND SOUL!

Nature, Travel

When I try to think back to when I actually discovered my deep love for the sea, I can’t think of a specific aha moment. That may be due to the fact that this connection, which I could almost describe as a dependency, was always there. For as long as I can remember I have been fascinated by the sea. Our vacations when I was little were all by the sea, which makes me think my parents must have felt the same way. Nothing else was an option for them, and so I later kept this family tradition with my family and passed this passion on to my children.

The water, the sand, the sun, for many people the sea is the place of longing. It almost magically attracts us. No other landscape is able to awaken this feeling of freedom in us, to dream away and forget everyday life. It is a wonderful feeling to feel the wind on your skin and taste the salt in the air. But where does that actually come from? Why do most people around the world feel the same, even though some of them come from completely different regions?

What connects everyone? It is the feeling of infinite vastness and distance that is so fascinating. After all, about two-thirds of the earth’s surface consists of water. It is not for nothing that our celestial body is called the Blue Planet.
