Episode 24: the Smallest Plane I’ve Ever Been On

smallest plane

Hi everyone! I’ve been adopting this salutation on my vlogs and here on the blog, apparently. Sorry it has taken me this long to get back on track, but hell I missed it. More than I like to admit. It has been bugging me for weeks not posting but, then again, I need a break every now and then. Which means I have a lot of content stored and prepared...

Episode 23: a Secret Beach and Some Nude Time

We’ve always had this thing with September. Being from the Algarve, that’s the quiet month. When everyone goes back to their lives and we get to enjoy the beach for a month. Last week, we had one of those days. While my father was still away, me and my mother went to the countryside. I say it ironically because everything feels like the country side there. There are a few...

Episode 22: We Did Some Damage

shopping

Last week, my father left for a two day conference. Me and my mother were by ourselves and had two full girl days. On the first, we went shopping unexpectedly. There’s a shopping mall a few miles away, we got in the car and did some damage. Then went back home and had an amazing meal my mother cooked. We walked the dogs and headed home so I could work...

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 20: a Typical Summer Day in Lagos, Portugal

typical summer day

I’ve been MIA, yet again. To be honest, I wanted to enjoy last week with my husband – who left for New York yesterday. I still posted on Monday and Tuesday but felt like I wanted to switch off. And that’s exactly what I did. That’s why yesterday I spent 4 hours going through hundreds of emails. I kid you not. But, meanwhile, we recorded a very typical summer day in...

Episode 19: Our Friends Got Married

Hi everyone! I hope you’re still there, even though I’ve been posting only 3 days a week. Summer back home is keeping me busy and last week was a whirlwind. I barely had time to sleep. Between meeting a few friends, dinners, hairdressers and a very important wedding, I was exhausted. But all for very good reasons! Last Friday, two of our closest friends got married in the beautiful town...

Episode 18: Sagres, the Most Western Point in the Algarve

Sagres

Last Sunday, I drove with my parents and a friend to the most western point in the Algarve: Sagres. This small town is best known for its big waves, beautiful and natural sights and unmistakable beaches. Even though, there’s a big resemblance to Big Sur – for a minute there I got really confused – there’s no place like it. One of my favorite thing to do back home, is...

Episode 17: We Spent the Night at the Beach

It all started around 14 years ago when I first went to Banho 29. Every year, in my hometown, there’s a party on the beach on the 29th of August. It’s been happening for years, but the first time I went, I was 14. I just started hanging out with a new group of, older, friends, and they organized to go to the party. It’s the one time of the year...

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....

Episode 15: I Went to the US Open with the Portuguese

US Open

Last week, the US Open qualifying started. For my husband, that’s the event of the year. Heading out to Flushing Meadows, hanging out with his friends and other players. Soaking in all the tennis he can. Early last week, I went to watch a derby (two Portuguese playing against each other). It was a fun and quiet Tuesday. I love seeing M at these events, it brings out a part...
