Of course, there’s nothing wrong with feeling a connection with big, picturesque and iconic landscapes. Living near so many beautiful beaches and locations these places do play a part in our lives – somewhere we’re able to escape to.

It could be a hidden little alleyway you used to use to practice roller skating in when you were little, or a park you now escape to from work on your lunch break – the same park which, in a previous life, you were taken to play in by your parents and later, drank cider and hung around in with your mates on a summer’s evening. You know it so well you stop noticing the mundane and it starts to become magical. A place full of memories.
