Episode 21: What’s Wrong With Me?

hometown

Another vlog, another day in paradise. Today’s vlog is a lot of me, me, me, but being without my significant other makes me turn into a boring lady. Talking to herself on the camera. It’s not as fun. On the plus, side, I babble a lot and make some fun mistakes. A lot of people ask me why I normally speak english in my vlogs. Sometimes some Portuguese sneaks in. But...

Episode 16: Going Back Home to Portugal

Portugal

Early last week we got the confirmation that we could travel. I immediately booked the next flight back home and flew on Thursday the 24th. The flight is overnight, so I got to Portugal early morning on Friday. My father picked me up and we had lunch with my brother in Lisbon before heading south. It takes us around 2 and half hours to get home and by 5pm, we’d arrived....

Let Summer 2017 Begin

As this is posted, I’ll be on a plane heading back home. I can’t tell you how excited I am and how I wanted to immediately share the news with everyone. But as it turns out, I felt overwhelmed with the information and it took me a couple of days to settle down. We found out Monday night that our authorizations to travel and work arrived. I want to throughly explain...

Episode 13: We Saw Alligators and Drove Down to Savannah

You’re probably sick and tired of all the Charleston spam. It’s a sort of #sorrynotsorry moment because I’m still very much holding on to those 4 beautiful days. On the second day of exploring Charleston, we had breakfast at the Butcher and Bee, and headed to the Magnolia Plantation. Charleston is famous for having a few plantations in its surroundings and we chose the Magnolia because of their famous gardens. It...

Episode 12: Roadtrip to Charleston

I finally got around to organizing the footage we did in Charleston. I’m already nostalgic and have only been back in New York for two days. Because it might get a bit tricky to condense 4 days into a 6 minute video, I decided to spread it out through two videos. Today I’m sharing the first half of our trip to Charleston. It started bright and early last Thursday. We left New...

Charleston, South Carolina

Charleston

Happy, happy Monday! I hope you had an amazing weekend – I surely have. If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know where me and my husband travelled to. If not, you should definitely follow and we came all the way to Charleston, South Carolina. With the growing anxiety, stress and tiredness of the past few months, we were in need of a quick escape. Montauk and biking through...

Episode 10: Riding a Bike Through New York City

I’m so happy to be writing this post. We’ve been planing for a few weeks now to bike through New York City. But we either decided to go to Montauk, it rained or was too hot. Yesterday was the day! It wasn’t too hot, nor cold, nor windy, nor impossible. We ate a strengthened breakfast, walked the dog and rented two Citi Bikes (this is not sponsored). Right in front of...

New York City Guide – Everything You Need to Know

New York City guide

After a few months of roaming around, trying new things, visiting same old places, I’m finally launching my New York City guide! It’s still a work in progress – and I guess it will always be as long as I live here. But I’ll be making sure to update it as often as possible and develop a space where you can easily read, recommend and enjoy. This New York City...

11 Howard

11 Howard

Welcome to 11 Howard! This weekend, me and M checked in one of the hippest hotels in Manhattan. Over this short stay, we got to enjoy the neighborhood and explore deeper the realms of this great area (which you can also see here). We lived a true tourist-weekend, hoping over from wine to cocktail, dinner to window shopping. We started by checking in and were greeted in the warmest way....

Nothing Like I’ve Ever Done Before

nothing like I've ever done before

If you follow me on Instagram, you might’ve seen a change in scenery and palette. After months of debating if I was coming home for my mother’s 60th birthday, on the last possible day, I decided to come. I crossed the idea off my mind for some time. It was a subject of great sadness to be missing another key moment in my family’s array. Her birthday was this past...
