Dreaming is Free

June 3rd, 2008

There are places that I wish I could still visit in my lifetime. Most of these are islands, or places along beach fronts. I am not much of a beach bum, in fact, there is a little loathing in me about seas and other bodies of water. I have friends whose lives were taken away by these bodies of water. But there is a certain aura about beach fronts that give me a natural high. Its the breeze, the changing hues of the horizon, the palm trees, the sound of water splashing and hissing, the sunrise and sunset and the calm, simply uplifts my spirit.

There are many of these spots in the place where I came from in Mindanao. But a grand vacation comes to mind when I’m fancying an island life or a beach escape. An island life without the threat of being kidnapped by the Abu Sayyaf. A beach escape in a pristine and not a tourist infested beach.

My day dreaming takes me to the Marquesas Islands in French Polynesia. There I would bask in the sun, walk barefoot on its sandy beaches, climb its mountains and pay a visit to the graves of Paul Gauguin and Jacques Brell. Mexico offers good spots too, and I have read that Cabo San Lucas is one of the best destinations. Being a tourist spot, it offers good Cabo San Lucas accomodations likeĀ  Cabo San Lucas Villas or forĀ  Cabo San Lucas Vacation rentals. Thailand also has good beaches and islands if you plan of following Di Caprio’s movie, The Beach. And lastly, but once again, the islands in the South Seas, where the late Marlon Brando hoped to build his paradise.

Call me old fashioned, but perhaps the movie South Pacific, the original one, had made such a great impact on me.
