There is no need to reintroduce my deep love for rooftops. If there are two things I always look forward to when traveling, it is a very local rooftop or an isolated long beach, both inaccessible for tourists. Both, in different ways, make me feel free and peaceful. The rooftop overlooks the city, all the busy people running on the streets, working in their offices, meeting, kissing, falling in love, talking on their phones, saying Goodbye for the last time… The beach overlooks the sea, the ocean, so quiet and enormous compared to the size of one human being; with its own life, a big part of it still unknown to us; so quiet and loud, so peaceful and angry, the sea can be many things, the beginning of life or end of it. Looking at the sea is like looking at the sky at night, it seems so close, but is so infinite and full of mystery and beauty, foreign to us beauty.
And what place do you like the most? Where can you spend hours on your own without getting bored, what makes you feel peaceful?
