A summer vacation- the sea, the juice, and me.
“Do you remember when you were last happiest?”
My friend asked me this during a recent chat.
Let me think for a moment. Well … Maybe when I was drinking an excellent coffee?
Or when I was watching my favorite drama? Or how I felt slender after I finished working out?
That’s not enough. I should find a happier time in my life.
Ah, I am recalling memory from my last summer vacation in Danang, Vietnam.
The fact that the happiest time of in my most recent life was one year ago made me a little gloomy.
At that time, I was laying on the old sun bed, watching the empty, bright blue-sea. The turquoise sea washed against the shore, and a fresh breeze cooled off the beach in the hot sun. I was listening to some music, but I took off my earphones and then listened the wind howl.
I felt that as if there was only the sea, the sand, the wind, some watermelon juice and me. The day was a perfect day for a sea bath.
Do you remember when you were last happiest?
Two weeks from now I’m going on a vacation from April 30th to May 4th.
I will enjoy plenty of free time without a long to-do list. I might write an article that I’ve been putting off.
Before I leave for my vacation, I should study hard for my midterm exam at CUFS and address my translation tasks.
I look forward to my trip, imagining I will be walking around the beach or watching a beautiful sunset with a glass of mango juice in hand.
