LIFE IS BETTER IN A BIKINI

If you know me, you know how much I love summer – being outside, meeting friends and going to the beach. What’s not to love? I still refuse to accept the fact that summer is over. My tan lines start to fade and no good summer fruit is to be found in the store anymore. But what I’ve got is all those amazing summer memories, those moments that I will keep coming back to. Today I take you to a Greek village I love returning to whenever I get a chance. It’s one of the places that for me feel like home. The name is Afytos and it is located in Chalkidiki, in the north of the Kassandra peninsula and also the north of Greece. It is a village about an hour drive from the airport in Thessaloniki, the second-largest city in Greece. All around the country you can find such authentic and picturesque villages that will really make a lasting impression. Afytos is quite small but what I love is the combination of romantic …

WEEKEND VIBES

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend. I woke up today dreaming of the ocean, wild salt air and sun-kissed skin. You would understand if you are obsessed as much as I am with summer and all the good things that come with it. What do you dream about today? Love, Adriana

LAST MINUTE BEACH HOLIDAY IN SEPTEMBER

Summer is slowly coming to an end and want it or not, sooner than you think, you will be pulling out the sweaters out of your closet. If you love the beach as much as I do and don’t want summer to be over just yet, here is an idea for you – go to Algarve, Portugal. This is the South part of the country, full of amazing beaches. And chances are that even end of September will have perfect weather for the beach 🙂 I landed in Faro and stayed in Pine Cliffs Resort, which is a short drive away from Albufeira. Its breath-taking beach location offers you unique views over the ocean. I fell in love with the interior of the place. The resort also has a great bar with a lovely view over the ocean. Don’t miss the sunset there. Enjoy a glass of wine as the sun sets behind the cliffs. Since I was only there for four days and with so many things to do and lovely places to see, the …

CARIBBEAN ADVENTURE

My Cuban adventure is unfortunately over but I have memories to last a lifetime! The people, the views, the sea, the smells, the sounds; they’re all still with me. Going through my pictures I can relive every moment. It was so beautiful I could not believe my eyes, so I literally jumped from happiness 🙂 If you know me well, you’re probably already tired of me talking about Cuba and showing you all the photos, but for those of you who don’t – I take you now to Cuba! 🙂 April is a good time to visit as the weather doesn’t get too hot. When booking, keep in mind that May is the rainy season. Other than that, you should have sun and perfect weather all the time 🙂 It was already my second time in Cuba, so I went to a different place – Cayo Guillermo, an island on the North side of Cuba. Most important for me when going on such holiday is to choose a place with a beautiful beach and I made no mistake. …

ADVENTURES

I had such a wonderful time in Cuba. It has been over a year since my last trip there. It will take some time to sort out all the photos to share with you but please bear with me. I can’t wait to tell you all about it! : )

BLESSED

Life lately… The days are getting longer and sunnier and my happiness levels are rising : ) It’s springtime, by far my favourite time of the year in Holland. It’s time for leather jackets, beach and rose wine. What I’ll never get tired of are those lazy weekends at the beach in Den Haag. I’m blessed to be living so close to the beach. And I obviously get there by bike. You can hardly survive living here without cycling : ) I also finally bough the Rayban sunglasses I’ve been wanting and wore them all day at the beach. Getting ready for the Cuban sun in a week : )))  

A DAY AT THE BEACH

Living in a city that has a beach makes such a big difference, even though The Hague is far from being the first place that comes to your mind when you think of it. This year has been pretty cold and I am really looking forward to those warm sunny days. Despite the cold and gloomy weather, I often go to the beach on weekends. The sea and the relaxing atmosphere calms me down, and whenever I am there it feels as if I am on vacation. Today I discovered that the beach bars are welcoming their first visitors, so I officially opened the season! 🙂 There was even some live music at the pier.    

SPRING IN DEN HAAG

We’ve been getting so much sunshine the past week here in the Netherlands. Even though it is still not as warm as I like it, I’ve slowly started to pull out my summer clothes and I’ve left all sweaters behind. Making sure not to miss the sunny weather, I headed to Scheveningen on Sunday. I planned a lovely lunch at The Harbour Club and took a walk around the area. I highly recommend this restaurant – incredible food and amazing view of the boats in front!

WHERE THE SUN ALWAYS SHINES

Fuerteventura Today I take you to sunny Fuerteventura! It is the second largest of the Canary Islands located off the coasts of Africa. Beaches & Day Trips   You can enjoy the island all year-round, in Fuerteventura the summer never ends. It has some of the best and longest beaches of all the Canary Islands. Corralejo Around Corralejo are located some of the best sand beaches I have ever seen! Whether you wish to hit the waves or just watch the surfers, the place is a real gem! The region is part of a Natural Park with beautiful dunes blending in with the turquoise water. From Corralejo you can take a bus or taxi (it is not expensive) to Grandes Playas. It is only a short ride away. You have to go there! If you get a chance, go before the sunset and walk on the dunes. Jandia & Morro Jable I went on a day trip down South to Morro Jable. I strongly recommend it! Morro Jable has an incredible beach, however, the best beaches for surfers are just …
