As I walked back to my apartment on the shores of Perast, I noticed all the couples walking hand in hand. I often feel the pangs of loneliness when traveling. I haven’t had a lasting boyfriend in a long time and rarely go on dates. Sometimes I feel a wave of invisibility when walking by men.
There are moments I have when traveling where I suddenly am aware of life and the present. Things become more vivid, my mind becomes quiet and my surroundings and I become connected in deeper way. Life becomes more real than usual and in the process seems to be unreal. Yesterday was one of those days filled with moments that make life precious.
