So I decide to make my way between the rocks and the few shrubs to reach and skirt them where the sea breaks its waves on the rocks. Trekking… Read More

Suddenly my eyes are drawn to a strange detail on the ground. A square with a number inside, a large one, 6765. Pausing to look the shape, I notice another a little… Read More
