A photo has a thousand faces.
A person has a million personalities.
And a journey has infinte possibilities.
Today began a journey with so many uncertainties, it can only be described as a leap to the unknown. Not an enormous leap -- I am only making my way to yet another western type society, but with Covid era affecting travel -- it is a leap nonetheless.
So here I am, moments before landing in my beloved land of Portugal.
The last time I was in this neck of the woods - it was a month or so BEFORE I had heard about the corona virus and shortly after, the world was never the same. I’ve been longing to be back to Portugal since. But with shut downs, lockdown and restricted travels - it was just not in the cards. Some will argue that it is still shouldn't be in the cards nowadays, but a journey to the unknown requires courage and willingness to take risks. And I am willing, VACCINATED, and ready. I don’t want my life to wait for an end of an era that may never arrive. Growing up in a conflict zone I learned then that anything can happen ALWAYS, safety is never guaranteed no matter how much the illusion persists, and if there is something I want to do - I ought to DO IT TODAY. Tomorrow? Tomorrow never comes.
So there. Journey - it's you, me and a lot of unknowns.
