Beautiful, young people in tropical, pristine locations with melodic, laid-back music. I felt a deep, rooted vibe from this video. The slow moving images triggered strong feelings of nostalgia for the carefree days in my 20’s. Oh, to be back to those days again. It almost hurts to think about…A knot settles in my throat.
