As usual, I was travelling around South America with my girlfriend. During our research about Peru, we read a lot about the Miraflores neighbourhood in Lima and decided to stay there for a few days before leaving for Cusco and Machu Picchu. On the way there, we drove us along this beautiful road by the sea called La Costa Verde – the Green Coast.

To many, the Maldives, with its islands scattered in a swirl of diamonds, is a heaven on earth. Its language, culture, history and its peaceful way of life are unique to the island-nation. Picture the scene: You’re sitting on the slowly cooling sands, watching as the sun’s last rays of the day paint the sky with a beautiful range of colours and tones. The waves of the Indian Ocean gently lap at your feet and a soft breeze blows.

This ‘micro island’ is the Ilha da Saudade, found close to the village of Morro de São Paulo on the east coast of Brazil. It is technically only an island at high tide as the waters rise to cover the land bridge that joins it to the Second Beach of Tinharé Island. The island’s name is usually translated as “homesickness island” (although ‘saudade’ does not translate into English easily).

The place evoked a deep feeling of peace and calmness, a sensation which is natural in this kind of landscape. The breeze, gentle as it was, along with the calm sea and the deep, vibrant blues that collided with each other out to the horizon, reminds me of nothing but the pleasure of being in such pristine surroundings, and our profound connection to nature as human beings.
