    MADEIRA: TREKKING ALONG THE PONTA DE SÃO LOURENÇO PENINSULA.

    We have decided to go on this trekking after spending a few days in woods and mountains in the middle of the island. We figured a change of location would be a nice contrast to a foggy and windy heights. If this sounded as a complain over past few days, it was not! Far from it. If you know me at all, you know how much I love woods and I would probably choose foggy woods over a beach 9 times out of 10. Ponta de São Lourenço is situated on the very east point of the island. It’s a barren peninsula with cliffs, and the only way to see it…

    THOUGHTS ON 3 YEARS OF BLOGGING

    Wow it’s been a while . I haven’t written a blog post for over a month and that wasn’t the plan. But these things happen to bloggers, right? Wait, am I allowed to call myself a blogger already? WordPress has reminded and congradulated (haha) me for my 3rd blog anniversary! Holy shit, time flies! I have posted 81 blog posts, including this one (God knows I have written quite a few more, but never published them). I can say I am not the most consistent hobby blogger in the World, but hey, I am trying. The most important question is whether I still enjoy writing, sharing my thoughts, photos and…

    WHAT TRAVEL HAS TAUGHT ME SO FAR? (PART 2)

    I know this post should be up much sooner, but for the past few weeks I’ve been struggling to do everything before leaving on our next trip. And yet I haven’t been as efficient as I would like, because here I am, half a day before leaving and still working on a few things, instead of packing. Plus I still somehow found time to write this post haha. Continuing the “first part” here is the second part of the things I’ve learned during my years of traveling. Enjoy! 13. One, for me very important is – try to make the best of the situation. If something unexpected happens, be resourcefull…

    HIKE TO NANOS HILL (AND PREPARING FOR A TRIP)

    This hike was another very spontaneous decision. After a busy week we were lying in our bed on Friday night, just before falling asleep, when it occured to us – if we sleep in tomorrow, there won’t be much from that day. “Do you want to go somewhere tomorrow?” “You mean, on a trip?” “Sure.” “Well, I am kind of running out of the ideas. I don’t want to go the seaside again, because it gets too crowded on weekends” “Actually, I had something different in mind. Maybe something more active. Want to go for a hike, I was thinking about Nanos?” “Great, Nanos it is!” That’s exactly how we…

    FLORIDA: EVERGLADES WILDLIFE

    This was my second time visiting the majestic Everglades National Park. When visiting for the first time with my boyfriend, we took an air boat ride through the swamp. It was one of those small private boats for max 7 people and we had a really great private tour, which turned out to be a much more authentic experience than booking a tour on one of those huge “mass tourism” air boats. We saw quite a few alligators during our ride. It is scary to think that just a few metres away there are deadly alligators, who would tear apart anything that is potential food in just a few seconds.…
