Day 2: Part 1: Mediterranean

If you missed the previous post: Day 1 – Night 1 w/ Miss Anna R. then go ahead & check that out first then continue here… We started Day 2 pretty much like every following day, breakfast on our beautiful bright balcony with the view of the glistening Mediterranean Sea inviting us over with each sparkle! Here are a few more photos of our Airbnb Apt by the Sea here in Limassol, Cyprus If you haven’t used Airbnb yet, then I highly recommend it! You can save tons of money by renting a beautiful apt with full amenities, whether you plan to travel for business or pleasure this is definitely the way to go! For all you Newbies here is a little Coupon for you when you Sign Up with Airbnb: Airbnb Invite After Breakfast & Coffee, it was time for our Mediterranean Dip aka Morning Shower. With the Sea just 10m from the apt building, this was our morning ritual! We agreed we would visit a different beach every day, wear a different bikini each time & of course …

Funny Apartment Incidents – Porto Edition

I’ve had the Bacalhau (dry, salted cod) in my fridge for the past 3 or so days, waiting for a perfect moment to finally prepare it. I’ve seen my Portuguese flatmate cook it in London, so I didn’t look at recipes online prior. It must’ve been the hunger from my Braga daytrip that took over, because I completely forgot to wash the salt off the fish before baking it. Pretty funny right? And, it didn’t really hit me until I tried it, and finally figured out where I went wrong. My apartment at first was filled with most lovely smell, I got so excited about this meal. The fish, if you forget to wash the salt off, is so insanely salty, woooh it’s nuts! I’m naturally not really into too much salt on my food, I use natural lemon juice sometimes instead of salt to add more flavour to dishes. So, what did I do? I ate one entire plate anyways, I was hungry. I followed up with some Milka Strawberry Yogurt Chocolate to get rid of the saltiness …

Funny Apartment Incidents – Porto edition

I love this apartment! It’s so beautiful. I also love being on the top floor, as I have really nice views of the city and people watching from my loft bedroom window is such a pleasure. I also love the beautiful wood ceilings throughout the apartment and the curves and shapes of the roof that take place throughout the apartment. Funny thing is you really do have to get used to having such low ceilings in particular places. For the past couple of days, I’ve been bumping my head in the following places: First morning waking up in a pitch black bedroom and hitting my head pretty hard above on the low wood ceiling as I got out of the bed. This one was really bad, this hard bump happened yesterday. I took a look outside the window and as I turned around I hit my head on the wood panel above me. To be honest, it was pretty funny because I had a killer migraine so it was like a little add on. Night …

Rainy day in Porto & the Postcard from Porto Winner

Bom Dia from Porto! It’s raining here in Porto today. I took a few quick photos with my phone earlier this morning from my loft bedroom window. I am using this bedroom for this post today, as I’m charging my phone right there in the corner, as you can see in the photo bellow 🙂 As I’m on the top floor, I can hear the sound of gentle raindrops on my rooftop, and it’s the most soothing sound ever. I can also hear the lovely church bells nearby ringing on the hour in such a sweet way, they make me smile 🙂 A very nice lady just knocked on my door and dropped off a large umbrella for me. How great is that? It’s Saturday and I’m still in my pajamas. Now that I have an umbrella I will go out and explore, but first I need to get some things from the supermarket next door. I made a nice cup of coffee with the coffee machine provided at the apartment, which by the way is …

First Experience with Airbnb in Rome

This was my first time using Airbnb, my first time visiting Rome, as well as my birthday, so I wanted to have a good first experience. This is also why I picked Massimiliano’s studio in beautiful Trastevere, because of his great reputation and amazing apt location. Massimiliano is absolutely an amazing host and I really got lucky. Anything I needed, he was there to help me with right away. He also greeted us with a delicious Italian lemon cake, which I couldn’t eat of course because of my gluten issues, but my mum had it for breakfast in the morning. The apt is great and has everything you need. The bed in the apt as well as the comforter was super comfortable and perfect to rest and relax in after a full day of sightseeing. There was always hot water available for the shower and water pressure was fantastic! Besides the hairdryer at the apt, there was also a mini flat iron available for use. I also found some vanilla candles in the bathroom which I used …
