salude per aqua

March 31st, 2018

 

Fringed by the steep, jagged mountains on one side and thrashing, untamed waters on the other, I was treated to a spiritual experience. Navigating through the (often) slippery, unending expansiveness, can be challenging, but surrendering to the gleaming mountains and bold forms of water is sure to cast a spell. I never imagined an onslaught of aqua feasting—from sprays of azure to lapping limpid teal—could lead me to a state of bliss.

 

 

The fetchingly dishevelled landscape of the Italian Riviera encouraged me to inhale the Mediterranean smells—an indescribable concoction of sea spray, olives, and blossoms—to relish and restore.  As I weaved through the modest-looking villages of Cinque Terre, the sensual experiences continued. Perched on terraced hills, dotted with buildings in fuchsia, citrus, and persimmon, sprinkled with fragrant orange orchards, and garlanded with emerald crashing waves, these vibrant villages along with their engaging inhabitants and the endlessly tossing luminous waters create an unexplainable serenity that nourishes and heals the soul.

It didn’t come as a surprise to later learn that S.P.A means healing through water—Salude Per Aqua.

Heera
