Believe in Adventure

There are days we replay in our minds countless times, dwelling on the joy and laughter they contained.  The discovery of a new place, a sandy beach on the shores of the Barents Sea.   Hunting for shells, polished sea glass… a message in a bottle.  On a magical day last August, our beach combing lead us to an unexpected gift from an unknown stranger:

“Believe in…adventure, yourself, love, honesty, people, the earth, nature, the Tooth Fairy, Santa Claus, the King”

Yes!  Let’s live our days, recapturing our childlike wonder at the world around us.  Let’s dare to dream, seek out adventure, believe in the impossible.  Let’s love, laugh, dance and skip. Let’s look for and appreciate the beauty in one another.  There are treasures waiting to be discovered.

    Beautiful pictures and words.

  2. What a wonderful message. Seize the day. The scenes are so exceptional – i will google the location. It looks so magically remote, the edge of the world.

      It is a spectacular region. I fell in love with it and want to go back. The landscape between Berlevåg and Kongsfjord is very unique. Definitely feels like the edge of the world.
