I know I keep on repeating myself but I LOVE how every city in Europe is near each other. Living in South of Spain for the past year has some perks (hehe) including having beautiful Portugal next door. We spent the winter holidays in Lisbon this year and we couldn’t wait to go back this summer. Since so many of you asked, here’s some of my favorite spots in the city.
After spending the last year in Spain, not visiting Mallorca was pretty much a shame! A short airplane flight (an hour away from Malaga’s airport to be more precise) and we landed in paradise (literally). First stop, Palma, the biggest city of Mallorca, where we stayed at the trendy Nakar Hotel. No need to say we couldn’t pick a better hotel in the heart of the city.
So excited to finally share some more pictures from my stay at beautiful Casa Mãe in Lagos. We had the chance to stay in their new Heritage suite, where vintage meets a spacious & luminous environment. Everything from the music playing in the room to the spectacular views of the city made our stay in Lagos unique. Not only is Casa Mãe my favorite place to stay in the city but I also highly recommend their restaurant, Orta – an authentic cuisine with a modern mix of flavors & presentation. While you’re there, make sure to check out their store with so many fun finds. Each time we’re in town, we can’t help but bring a souvenir or two :).
Each year I go through the same debate – what to do on my birthday. I always end up spending quality time with family and friends but this year was definitely different since they are on the other side of the ocean. After some talks with Fred we decided we wanted to go somewhere exotic (beach please), with some fun activities (when laying down in the sun is enough – is that even possible? ha!) and good food. We literally took out the world map and this is when the Canary Islands came up.
You guys, I left my heart in Lisbon! I’ve already had a blast in the Algarve (south of Portugal) but the architecture, the food and the city vibe in the capital is just incredible! Accommodation wise, I was seriously surprised by the number of (cool) Airbnb’s, hotels and Bed&Breakfast available – portuguese people definitely have a sense of style when it comes to interior design! I discovered Casa C’Alma, a trendy guesthouse in Lisbon and I had to share more about my stay!
