Do you remeber that last year we spontaneously decided to go to Bruges and it turned out one of the most charming trips we’ve ever made? Well, it looks like May is our unexpected-destinations-and-travels month! As you read this we will be flying to the South of Portugal!!!
Some years ago we used to go every Summer to a music festival in Alentejo (clic) but we’ve never visited Algarve before and we are absolutely excited about it. To be honest, it wasn’t one of our top destinations but it just happened and we are going to make the most of it! Those beaches! Sigh! We’re planning on reading by the swimmingpool, taking long walks on the beach and eating tons of fish and fresh fruits.
We only hope that the cloud that followed us to Mallorca and Paris decides to stay in Germany this time. We’ll see…

North Sea everywhere.
Today it rains and I’m wearing a sweater… Fall is here way too soon. Fine by me! I love Fall, but it seems incredible that just two weeks ago we had the most amazing time with our friends in the south of Spain. We rented a house in a very charming little village and we spent the most relaxing and funny weekend. I thought we could share with you.
This lovely beach is placed in a tiny Portuguese village called Zambujeira do Mar. We used to go there every Summer to spend a few days during the Sudoeste Festival. It was a great Festival: not too famous, not too crowded and not too far from the beach. We spent the mornings lying in the beach and the afternoons and nights dancing and listening to our favourite bands. I remember Beck singing a cool version of Beyonce’s Crazy in love, a spectacular Moloko’s concert, an unexpectedly funny Morcheeba’s show, the best Jamiroquai’s concert ever and much much more… Oh, and I got so angry at The Cure’s concert!!! I was so excited before and so disappointed afterwards…
It was great… I even liked camping then. Well, what can I say? I was young and inexperienced! So, if you like camping under pine trees (beware of the fire!), long Summer nights with your favourite music and Sagres beer, you should give it a try! This year the festival takes place from 1st to 5th August and it’s featuring lots of great artists: from Ben Harper to David Guetta. There is music for every taste. Here you have the link:
And don’t forget the amazing Portuguese beaches!

Last Summer we made a little road trip which involved fantastic beaches, lovely weather, amazing food and gorgeous landscapes. We visited Saint Jean de Luz, Biarritz, Zarautz and Getaria.
Last weekend we went to the beach. That’s one sentence I never thought I’d say in Germany!
Mykonos is just wonderful. We spent six days going from beach to beach, no make up, no heels, no rush, no clock… it was all about great food, wonderful landscapes and kind people. Since it was already October the island was almost deserted: perfection.
Amazing beach clubs where you get everything you need without leaving your sunbed
Wonderful places to relax…
We love life! (in Greece)
PS: A post of our Greek adventures comming soon!!!
Spiekeroog is one of the East Frisian Islands, in North Sea. One of the things that makes this island so special is that it’s free of cars, and that makes the stay even more relaxing.
Travemünde is a small seaside village in the north of Germany. We spent just an afternoon there. It was a windy day in late August, It wasn’t warm, but it was nice enough to take a stroll along the beach with our friends.
