With most of the world currently under lockdown, borders closed and flights grounded, travelling is not something that will happen for most of us anytime soon. These past few weeks truly reminded us what a privilege it is to be able to get on a plane and discover the world.
I always imagined this experience to be one where I submerge into clear blue waters, felt the calmness of the ocean, overwhelmed with emotion while swimming next to one of these magnificent animals. I imagined taking in the moment as I floated next to one of the biggest creatures in the world. Unfortunately, this was not the case at all.
They say the older you get, the faster time goes and as the years pass me by, I can relate to this more and more.

He had no idea that his brother and I would be coming down and he had no idea that his wife hijacked his birthday weekend plans with friends by organising a massive get together in Paternoster.
