300 Days of Sunshine

300 Days of Sunshine
Hello Sweeties! :heartame:
How was your weekend? We celebrated my sister’s 20th birthday on Saturday and Sunday I had a little outfit shoot at a very special location! Afterwards we went to the lake for a swim and to enjoy the sun.
I also managed to pick out the pictures of the Algarve, the southernmost region of mainland Portugal that I would like to show you. We rented a car in Lisbon and drove for about 3 hours until we reached our destination. We had no plans where to go exactly but it didn’t really matter since the coast and the small villages were beautiful everywhere.

The Algarve is said to have the most sunny days in Europe and that’s exactly what we needed because we haven’t had any real summer days yet here in Switzerland.. :hm:
Camping is something we started doing together in Japan. As with some other things, camping is not everyone’s taste I think. It’s something that you may romanticise about but you only know if you love it or hate it after you’ve done it. Silvankun & I however, love camping ever since then so as most of the passed summers, we went camping again. We’re far away from being professional campers and it’s always amusing how other more adult campers smile at the younger amateurs. :tongue:

The campsite was magnific but there were too many birds that were chirping like crazy. The birdwatchers loved it, we not so much… every morning at 5 am they were so loud and annoying that it was really difficult to sleep on. :nope: So yes, these weren’t our sleep-wise most restorative holidays but it made us tougher! .. and I get up pretty early anyway so never mind! We hadn’t brought our Japanese gas burner so we bought a little cheap grill on which we’ve made dinner a few times. But the highlight was definitely the night we spent at the beach. Sleeping in our sleeping bags with the countless stars sparkling above us , the ocean sound and the sunrise on the next day were an awesome experience.

Have you ever slept at the beach? How did you like it?
Read on, to see pictures of the beautiful beaches!

Hope you enjoyed this little beach trip! I’ll be back with an outfit post real soon! Can’t wait to read your opinions.. :swirlheart:

    Thank you so much:)
    I loved this post, and I loved the pictures, it’s so beautiful and magical. Hopefully I’ll get to sleep at the beach too during my trip in Italy. :)

  9. Portugal seems so beautiful *W* I never visited it.
    I love to camp, but I never slept on the beach even if I’d like to. I think it isn’t exactly the Hairy Half’s piece of cake….I’d like to make a bonfire on the beach too, but now in Italy it is prohibited (even if someone does it anyway).
