Think about how we all dream about places we want to go to, how we search for inspiration or just randomly find pictures of crystal clear water or high mountains. And how planning and longing for a trip is sometimes half the pleasure. When away, our lives are nothing like our everyday lives, and when back at home we have our memories. I mean, the reminiscence of a warm beach on a rainy Monday in November…

We dream, we need to dream, and we do it every day. Sometimes that’s enough. And sometimes you just want the name of the best bar on Manhattan where you can dance like there’s no tomorrow. It’s all some kind of escapism.
