The tale of freedom, wilderness, nirvana and JOMO.

The tale of freedom, wilderness, nirvana and JOMO.

JOMO – (after Urban Dictionary) – ‘Joy of Missing Out: A sensation of pleasure caused by social deficiency. JOMO cherishes moments of aloneness, it distances one from the extravagant broadcast of social interactions.’ Never have I ever thought I would go into a forest full of […]

The tale of Canadian cities.

The tale of Canadian cities.

We visited the east of Canada, so the big cities we had the chance to see were Toronto, Ottawa (just a few hours, though), Montreal, and Quebec City. Toronto and Ottawa are in the English-speaking part of the country, whereas Montreal and Quebec City are […]

The tale of it’s-got-it-all island.

The tale of it’s-got-it-all island.

I thought I would never write anything here again, and it’s not just that we don’t travel. We do travel, I do take photos, but I’ve switched over to instagram and neglected this place a lot. So let’s try this again. Tenerife is a place […]

The tale of winter paradise in Europe.

The tale of winter paradise in Europe.

It took me one year and six months to write this post 😉 or to actually come back to the photos that I took on our Portuguese winter escape. If you are looking for a place that is all-year-long green and with perfect temperatures, look […]

The tale of Australian numbers, places and details in black and white.

1 huge continent (and country at the same time) 1 extremely old Hippie campervan (1975) 2 people with skin as white as a sheet (you could tell us from the natives in the blink of an eye) 2 old pairs of our favourite sandals (we […]

The tale of OMG I spent a month in Australia and almost nothing bit me.

The tale of OMG I spent a month in Australia and almost nothing bit me.

If you go on an epic journey, you don’t want to bore people with your endless stories. So I chose some of the fun facts we learnt during the trip or things that really happened (but we still can’t believe in some of them): We […]

The tale of old postcards from Lisbon.

The tale of old postcards from Lisbon.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know. Been lazy for a very long time. We’ve just come back from another holiday and I realised it’s been a year since Lisbon. I still find myself thinking about these glorious days by the ocean, especially now when the temperatures […]

The tale of vegan paradise.

The tale of vegan paradise.

We’ve been to Berlin countless times before, either for shopping or concerts. We never really had the chance (or time) to see the city as tourists. So this long weekend we decided to indulge ourselves a little. We packed our backpacks, booked a room in […]

The tale of wine and pasteis de nata.

The tale of wine and pasteis de nata.

Today is officially the first day of my holiday! Hope to catch up with everything… So in February we took a two-week trip to Portugal. We started with Porto. We drank gallons of wine (Ruby in particular, though everybody says Tawny is the best). We […]

The tale of Gaudi.

The tale of Gaudi.

One more big city off the list! I have dreamt of seeing/touching/licking/sitting on Gaudi’s works since I remember. It was sooooo worth it, soooooo worth it! Barcelona is vibrant, charming, colourful and probably one of the best cures for autumn’s depression. Enjoy!
