First you are in a desert. The hot sand stings your eyes as it is pushed around by the raging wind. The blazing sun burns your skin, turning it a bright red. All you can see for miles around is dry, barren land.
Now you are swept into a lush forest. The green leaves from the tall trees make shadows that dance across the grass. You can hear the trickling of water from a crystal clear stream nearby.
You suddenly find yourself in a palace. The intimidating walls are trimmed with gold, and the grand floors have intricate designs carved delicately into them. Small tables hold vases of the prettiest flowers in all the land. People dance gracefully for hours.
You’re delighted to see that you have come across an ocean. The salty waves spray on you and wet your clothes, and you climb along the rocks that jut up from the water. The seagulls above you sing loudly but gracefully as they glide over the beach.
Sometimes the places we visit don’t have to be real. The adventures you take in your imagination make them all the more worth it.
