A Travellerspoint blog

The calm before the stom

overcast 25 °C

It's been a bit hard to write a blog update lately due to constant rush of house music and the allure of the beach. This is an island that truely never sleeps and the tourists here are all amazing people who've been travelling anywhere from a few days to 6 month escapades across India, Australlia and the Maldives! Crazy stories have been heard.

Last night was the first time I was able to truely get a sense of peace and just become lost in the openess. They say a picture is worth a thousand words but sometimes even that isn't enough. Staring at the open waters under a nighttime sky is something that cannot be taken a picture of, it would just look ugly or plain, especially without all the jazz of a DSLR. But instead of posting a picture of the amazingness I'll sort of recreate the emotion, a very zindigi na milegi dobara moment (great movie for those of you haven't seen it!).

Sitting on the edge of a beach deck, hundreds of people behind you partying with house music blasting in the background, dark midnight sky with the roar of the full moon in the background illuminating an entire ocean of water, hillsides in the background creating a serene landscape , filtering out all the yelling and just relating the beats of the music to the waves of the water, crazy cool breeze cooling everything down to a standstill.

No talking needed, people often came up to me and asked hey! why are you just sitting down! It's truely a surreal moment that I can enjoy for hours and hours on end, getting lost in the water, losing my thoughts, getting some new found focus, a real inspiration.

Time to get ready to tackle our second last night on the island, sorry for the terrible grammer, it's sort of one of those posts. I hope you all have a chance to experience a moment like that, my words do no justice, you gotta see it to believe it.
