    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…

    PORTO

    Just as I dropped the case of eagerly searching for photos from our last stop in Portugal and kind of accepted the fact that it’s gone, I found my other SD card and there it was – the lost footage from Porto. That was my Christmas miracle of 2017 haha! I know blog posts should be a bit more winter themed right now but hey, it’s my blog so I can post whatever I like am I right? Furthermore some of my favourite photos from the entire trip are from Porto, so I thought I would share them with you anyway. As I said before, Porto was our last longer…

    HIDDEN GEMS OF SINTRA

    After spending a whole week at the seaside, it was time to say goodbye to the beachlife. I must admit we weren’t too thrilled about it and I had second thoughts about leaving the beach life behind. I said to myself “We should have extended our stay at the seaside instead of  visiting Sintra”. But it soon cleared up I was wrong. Arriving to Sintra  can be a stressful experience, no matter what form of transportation you use. Sintra is a small town in the middle of woods and mountains. All streets are narrow, steep and many of them are one-way streets. Also keep in mind Sintra is one of the top tourist…

    BEACHES OF PORTUGAL AND HOW QUICKLY CAN THINGS GO WRONG

    One word for all of the beaches in Portugal we’ve visited – AMAZING! I loved them, every single one of them. Beaches were one of my favourite things about our trip to Portugal. As soon as we left Lisbon behind we drove way down to the South and spent a few days on a touristy Southern coast. The following days consisted of : sleeping in, eating good food, driving around in search of some beautiful beaches and enjoying each other’s company. When travelling, we always try to squeeze  in a few “rest” days, between those “go-go-go” days. Spending a few days in Albufeira deffinitely gave us that much needed rest. …

    VIEWS OF LISBON

    If there was something I really loved about Lisbon, it were views over the city.  The first specatular view over Lisbon was through the plane window as we were landing. It was really special , just as the city would like to welcome us.   There are so many beautiful viewing points in Lisbon, it’s hard to overlook them. Practically every top of a hill gives you an incredible view over a certain part of a city. We haven’t been looking for them at all, but found them by chance as a result of wandering the streets amilessly.   ž   The only one we didn’t find by chance was visiting…
