Your Travel Guide

It was time. Arriving, he found himself floating on the wind, unable to take it all in, breathing like he never smelled the air before. Dancing. Living. Being. These were the hallmarks of Amirandes Grecotel, on the island of Crete, and he was fearful it might be more than he deserved. He tightened his belly as he moved forward. There was a new freedom possessing his soul, and he stepped gingerly as not to jar the moment. What would they say about him back home? Was he behaving irrationally? Or was he moving a step closer to finding his bliss? Something commandeered his teeth, not a clench nor a chatter, but a tap of determination. He set his mind to conquer his hesitation. He knew he needed to enter the dawn of tomorrow and the cusp of evermore. Crete was so very new to him. He found himself hypnotized by the horizon, basking in the sun while soaking in the sea. The softness of the breeze invited him, and he walked near the shore smelling the freshness of life. This was more than he had ever imagined or anticipated. He needed to remember how to relax and relinquish. This trip would topple all other trips, a journey for the mind and the spirit. He was here moving to the rhythm of the adventure, waiting for the music and mystique to take him over and bring him where he had never dared venture before. The waves rhythmically crashed on the shore. The gods smiled. This was magic.
