He doesn't speak, his movements are quiet, he makes no eye contact with bewildered spectators, in fact sometimes you don't even notice he's there if your eyes aren't laser-focused on what he's doing. Once you see him you're transfixed, and you simply cannot move until you see what he's going to come up with next.  I'm not even sure what his name is, I just decided to call him the Sand King of Cascais... this beachside town in Portugal is one of my favorite places in the world, that I've been visiting since childhood but I've only noticed him recently.

Perhaps he was on another beach before, making incredible things for people to marvel at and leaving each day knowing he put smiles on hundreds of peoples' faces. It's one of those moments in travel where you see someone exactly where they must be meant to be, doing what they so evidently love, and not seeming to have a care in the world, and you then realize that you too are in fact exactly where you are supposed to be at that moment as well.  Sometimes we rush to see everything there is to see in a place, and we miss the things that perhaps are the most beautiful and special. This is the difference between a trip and an immersive journey... come and see the world through a different perspective. We look so forward to helping you plan your next journey- who knows what you'll discover.
