Somewhere along the road we found it. We didn’t seek it out or hunt it down, but at some point or another it graced each and every one of us. That’s the thing about traveling; you find things you weren’t looking for. For us, it was youth. This trip was a reminder that though we’re older and hairier, we’re still groms willing to skate parking lots and surf shitty waves. It felt good to tap into that esoteric state, and it felt better to know it hasn’t vanished. That’s why we went, we didn’t know it at the time, but that’s what we came home with.
Truth be told, we don’t want to grow up, so we’re not.
