I write you from my sofa, totally sick and exhausted. Cold weather arrived suddenly and knocked me down. And I’m afraid P. is following my steps… Stressed with tons of work to do and feeling under the weather, we’ve been dreaming (again) with warmer temperatures and lovely places to escape from this hard week/weather/country. We’ve discovered this amazing hotel, surrounded by the breathtaking landscape of the Tramuntana Mountains in Mallorca. Silence, nature, relax… This wonderful placed is called Castell Son Claret.
Finally, here you have our Portuguese photo diary!!! I warn you: this post is all about sun, food, sea and good massages. It doesn’t get deeper than that!
This is the first time in our lives that we were on vacation and we didn’t want to leave the hotel. We just couldn’t. Everything was so beautiful, calm and inviting that wahtever was outside its doors simply didn’t matter.
Placed in one of the most popular tourist destinations in Algarve, Belavista Hotel & Spa, is without any doubt the best hotel in the region. The hotel overlooks Praia da Rocha, one of the most impressive beaches of the Algarve. Everything here invites to relax and feel happy and pampered without any care in the world. After a terrible Winter and a rainy Spring, we needed sun, cocktails and massages. And that’s what we had!
We keep on dreaming about sun, warm weather and endless walks by the sea. I guess that’s the consequence of the endless German Winter. We have thought that it’s about time we stop daydreaming and start organizing a little getaway to one of the best places in the world to get over Winter: a Mediterranean island. We are thinking about Mallorca… And look at the hotel that we have discovered, it’s a dream!
This week has been quite hard: problems at work, horrible weather and a really awful “there is no chocolate” situation at home. Fortunately, Friday is here! It seems that the sun is visiting us on Saturday, I’ve bought a couple chocolate bars and we are attending a friend’s brithday party, so chances are that we will finish the week with a smile.
What are you up to this weekend?
Yesterday I was daydreaming about Greece and found this incredible hotel, the Katikies, a hidden jewel in Santorini. That’s exactly what I need. In my head I’m already there… It looks like the perfect place to relax, watch time go by and don’t think at all, just enjoy life and sunsets.
Yesterday I went to the Spa to get my back massaged. It was a present that I got on my birthday and that’s the only reason I went for it. I know massages are supposed to be relaxing but I find them very stressful.
I just feel uncomfortable, shy and really nervous. And what do I do when I get nervous? Talk. So there I am: lying seminaked, with my face stuck in some sort of hole, almost suffocated by a towel and talking talking talking. I always wonder how people relax in that situations! Do you? Don’t you feel like you have to say something or create a bond with the person who is touching you? I mean, that gets intimate sometimes! Once a friend of mine gave me a full body scrub massage in a very fancy Spa and although it was supposed to be an incredible experience, really exclusive and luxurious, I had a terrible time because I didn’t know what to do while the lady was scrubbing my… well, everything!!! I almost run out of topics to talk about!
