A 3 day trip to Istria, 50 hours to get closer to an ancient land closed between the mountains and the sea. Apparently unfriendly.
By repeating Saramago's famous remark: The journey is never over. Only travellers come to an end. But even then they can prolong their voyage in their memories, in recollections, in stories. When the traveller sat in the sand and declared: “there’s nothing more to see” he knew it wasn’t true.
