Growing up I wanted to seek out everything new: new cities, new people, new experiences; hated the idea of seeing the same film, eating at the same restaurant or traveling to the same place, twice. Life is too short for repeats.
Until recently, I started to understand that in fact it takes more will, more courage and self awareness to revisit the known, to find breadth as well as depth, to pause, to commit.
This year I’ll be going back – this time for research – to the same island I was at 2 years ago at the same time, where I saw whale sharks for the first time and met researchers from MWSRP, and which 2 years later, is inspiring and powering my ambition for conservation activism.
See you in a month, Maldives.
