What can I say – Socotra has touched me like few places on Earth – I’m spellbound!

On this island you’ll experience diversity and uniqueness on so many levels! When driving, trekking, sitting, on your back gazing upon the Milkyway, swimming in the crystal clear ocean, or in a stream seeping out from the countless caves. Every turn, every breath of air is something fresh and unique – like another planet altogether.

This view from the highest point of Socotra – Skant – is so amazing, and it was hard concentrating on photography as the vista was ever changing – colors, sounds, scents – all physical senses. But the centre of my being was touched more than all of those.

I wonder what it is with me and Socotra.
