|The nature around me|
Our hike in Cova Tallada started off with a slightly less amazing pathway, but as we got to the edge, it was worth it, there was a beautiful view to the ocean. Then it was time for breakfast: tuna sandwiches and chips with some water; nothing fancy, but definitely satisfying. All while taking in sound of the waves. Soothing.
Once everyone was done, we made our way to start the hike. The difficulty of the trail would change constantly, keeping us on our toes. The goal: to reach the sea. We finally reached the steps to get closer to the shore.

We couldn't get right to the shore due to the cliffs and strong waves, but the views were amazing. We stayed there for a few minutes to take in the sea breeze. I could have stayed there all day.

Then the hard part came: back up the hill. Once we reached the top, the field allowed us to enjoy the flowers and fog that was just rolling in. It looked like a scene out of a suspense movie. After another 15-20 minute walk, we were greeted with a beautiful view of the city, it was incredible.
