This was the 15th post (Day 15) of an entire year-long series, which I named ‘Project 365′. The idea was simple enough: travel for a full year and document every day of it, in the form of a daily picture and poem. I am still working on a book of this year-long travel, but till then, enjoy all the posts here. You can check out the daily posts in the details below or jump to the final day of the project by clicking here.
16th July 2014 – Efate, Vanuatu
When the cards are full, and the tripod has sand. Like a reflection of the 7 days that has passed, so fast. You know that the bags are ready to be packed And that sometimes, goodbyes are what actually last.
I can’t believe that it has been 7 days since I’ve been to Port Vila. They say time slows down when you travel. I dont know what on earth THEY were smoking, because my time has literally done an Usain Bolt here in this idyllic city. I have nearly 2000 pics on my camera, and although I did not see the other smaller islands of Vanuatu, I am a content man. I will always have fond memories of this place, and maybe someday, come back in some April to see those crazy dudes land-diving at Pentecost.
I stepped out early in the morning today so that I could pack my bags in the evening. I wanted to click a girl that I have been seeing for the last few days, just 20 minutes from the city centre. Over the last few days, I took innumerable pictures of her – always smiling, always playing around.
Today, her face was overcast. And for one of those fleeting moments, I think I saw my own reflection in her.
