Garden Views: Quinta Vigia

Yet another update from beautiful Madeira. Today we got tired of waiting around for the sun, so we went for a walk downtown to further explore the city of Funchal. Funchal isn’t the largest of cities, but it does have well over 100.000 inhabitants. Our first stop downhill from our hotel (the hotel is Cliff Bay, in case you had gotten curious) was Quinta Vigia – an absolutely beautiful garden overlooking the city...

Hello Madeira!

I’ve arrived to Madeira after a roughly 4,5 hours long flight from Copenhagen. Josephine (my sister) and I got up around 4am this morning, so immediately when we arrived we set out to find a spot by the pool, and chilled there most of the afternoon, drinking champagne and wine of course 😉 Madeira is located in the Atlantic, just off of Morocco’s coast, so it’s no more than 23 degrees...

It certainly was one of those summers I’ll never forget.     

Faroe Islands Photo Diary

We (Sidsel, my new partner-in-crime, and I) rented a car the entire time, which was a very clever decision since it’s pretty hard to get around the islands otherwise. Tórshavn itself is tiny, so the majority...

Postcard from The Algarve

Man, I wish I had a GoPro with me yesterday, biking for hours along orange fields in the sun, passing cute, little villages on my way… I arrived in the Algarve Thursday morning at Faro airport, from where I was picked up and taken to the Ria Formosa natural park area, where my hotel is – located between two huge golf courts. Absolutely stunning views. When I arrived it was...
