Imagine yourself in land of mountain wilderness, interspersed with glacial glens and lochs.
You are standing on the peak, high above the ground, looking down on a valley of purple mist.
Feel the breeze as the wind carries the scent of lavender towards you.
Following this sweet and smokey fragrance, you descend into the navel of this island.
It feels good to finally be here.
You are alone.
Extract from 'The Ultimate Journey', by Alicia Tsigarides.
