Sunset at Casa Del Papa
Sunset at Casa Del Papa

It has always been my dream to have a house by the ocean. I imagine that sitting by the ocean and hearing the crashing waves, will allow inspiration flow and I will finally write my books… I imagine walking with my husband, kids and dog on the beach front. I see us having barbecues and eating outside on the patio the wind in our hair and the taste of salt water on our lips- carried through the breeze! I imagine white sands, seashells and star fish… I see the endless ocean and stand in awe!

But you know that every dream has its time. I cannot afford a house by the ocean yet, so you know what? I go to Casa Del Papa, a little beach resort in Ouidah, Benin Republic. It is lovely, the service is great and it is right by the ocean. In the 5 to 10 days I stay there in a year- I “act as if”  and enjoy being there as though I truly own my house by the ocean… Enjoy the pictures with me and then share, which of your dreams are you “acting” into existence and how?

Aqua massage bed! 16 taps in what seems like an assault initially. It soon got very relaxing and I fell asleep under the torrents of water!
