In 2017th I realised that there’s not much time left to make my dreams come true. The real dreams, which I had for years. We all have them and somehow we push them away, because we still have so much time for all of these. Well, I don’t. I am way closer to 40 than 30 and in a few years I’ll be in a school obligation circle, which means… you know what it means, I pretend I don’t :).
My list is not so long, as I have the same ones for years. One of them was to live somewhere in a hut far away from civilisation with an ocean view. I realised, that living in front of the ocean does not mean, that I have to move my life somewhere else. I can go there just for some time. We sat in front of the computer and started to look. Somehow it was obvious, that it will be Portugal, as I love this country. I also fell in love with the northern part of the country, so my search became easier and easier. At some point, totally by accident, I found a Luis’ house. I saw the first picture, which showed the front of the house and the distance from the ocean and that was it! Why? Because the beach was the garden. I was just crossing my fingers for a reasonable kitchen and it definitely was.
We came around midnight, it was raining like crazy, the wind was hitting the windows and I could not be happier. This is what I used to imagine – us sitting next to a fireplace, while the storm gets wild behind windows. It may be a strange vision, but had you ever experienced it? Wow! It looks amazing!
The next morning we woke up to the most amazing view behind our window and that was the moment when I felt pure happiness. That was it. I am living next to the ocean, I can look at it while I brush my teeth and while I eat a sandwich.
The weather did not spoil us, it’s raining a lot, but… after a rain rainbow comes. Or at least the sun. Whenever it stops, we get wild. I don’t think I ever spent so much time on a beach. We go for walks in a morning, we search for stones, or sticks, or monsters or we just try to stop Mia from running into the water.
Here is what I learned from my dream coming true:
– it was way easier than I expected,
– it was way cheaper than I expected,
– I was waiting too long,
– I love the ocean and I know that I can live far away land (away from people and big city),
– I love waking up to an ocean view,
– my kid is way braver than I am, as she puts on her bikini with 8*C outside and runs on a beach,
– it is truly beautiful to wake up and fall asleep to the sound of the ocean,
– it’s never boring,
– after two weeks I am even more shocked with a beauty of the ocean,
– I think I got addicted to the ocean,
If you feel like having a break, this is the most perfect place for you. Luis’ house is an extraordinary place.
