The funny thing with myths is that there is usually some element of truth to them. But mostly they take us down that dangerous hole of comparison. It has been a process for me to realize that there were things I was aspiring to that simply weren’t real to begin with. Allow me to outline some of the myths I got sucked into believing (and what I’ve decided to do instead!)

Last night when Paul and I took our late-afternoon bike ride with Maya here on Fakarava, we played a game exchanging our favourite memories from our trip so far. We had no shortage of snapshots to share, from moments that made our hearts soar to inside jokes that still make us laugh out loud. It was a good way to counter our recent frustrations – a soothing remedy for feeling a bit cursed on this trip.
Because sometimes it feels like we’re being punished for ever dreaming it up in the first place.
