My soul country, the moment I step onto Namibian soil I relax and feel at one with the earth. Maybe it’s the desert, or perhaps it’s the starkness of the land, but it’s a place that has a piece of my heart.
This is the week of the letter “L”. The light in the photo below is right across from my family apartment in Lisbon. It must’ve originally been powered by gas (a couple of hundred years ago), lit each evening by the gas-lighters. Eventually electrified, not sure when, it’s a beacon of Home for me.
Sam’s Giardino desert lodge in Swakopmund is gorgeous and serves a great breakfast.
The lighthouse at Cabo S. Vicente close to Sagres in Portugal is the most southern point of the European continent. Ahead is the Atlantic Ocean until you hit the North American continent. Another beacon, this time alerting ships’ captains of danger.
A lemon from our tree.
A welcome sprig of lavender in my room at the Pat Busch Mountain Reserve.
