Day 3 - All I need is... Sun

First thing in the morning we checked the pool from the resort were our villa is located. Purrfect for swimming and enjoying the sun.
Today was warmer, 24-26 degrees in the middle of the day. No clouds.
We drove to Costa Adeje to take a 3h tour with the boat. Because we had plenty of time before the trip, me and Victor, but mostly me, were brave enough to try the water. I went all the way. It was cold, comparable with the Black Sea at the beginning of June. It was enough to stay one hour to a terrasse to get some tan.
Before getting on the boat I went to buy a hat. Mihai went before me to buy one. He paid for his 10€. When I went I found with 6€ cause love I'm gorgeous :)).
I confirmed I don't have sea sick. If yesterday I saw whales and dolphins in captivity today I saw them in their natural habitat.
I saw also people living in caves on the coast. I can't tell if they are locals or not.
After we came back to the port we walked a little bit and came across a nice restaurant with view to the ocean.
Before getting back to the villa we made another stop in a village/city nearby (I don't exactly the name of it) and enjoyed the sunset. We found another nice terasse with great view to the ocean. We plan to get back here to try also the food (when we got they were preparing to close it and weren't serving food anymore).
This night we didn't go to that Irish pub, we tried some seafood. We drove to a nearby city (Los Abrigos) to try a restaurant I found on foursquare (Perlas del Mar). The food was delicious. We had paella and a big plate with mixed grilled seafood. That was too much and now we are rolling all the way down.

Stories from Hamburg

Lately I've heard a lot about Hamburg, how awesome it is and I was curious to see it with my own eyes. Being in Berlin these days, was the perfect moment to do it. I bought train tickets and here I am in a train going to Hamburg. With my book, enjoying a 2h train ride  The weather was not favorable to me, but I still have all my fingers. I must say, the rainy day enhanced the colors of this city. I was not kidding about the cold It took me a few time to get used with the temperature, but after that I forgot it was cold. I had set in mind to see the canals. I came here for that. I read some articles about this and I was impressed. It's said that it has more than Venice or Amsterdam. From what I've seen, it looks a lot with both of them, but on a different scale. If in the two cities mentioned the buildings are not so tall, here we find massive constructions. #wanderlust #urbanphotography #enthusiastictraveller A post shared by Madalina G. (@gmadalina92)

Kasteel de Haar - a luxurious castle

During the rainy days and with the current restrictions, my only consolation is writing about magical places I discovered in the past months in Netherlands. The subject of this post is De Haar Castle, a place rich in stories!  The joy of exploring this flamboyant castle De Haar is the largest castle in the Netherlands, once the private residence of the Van Zuylen family, whose descendants still stay there yearly. In the last century, the castle also frequently hosted members of the international jet set with their lavish lifestyle; from Coco Chanel to Roger Moore, they too left their mark on the sumptuous rooms of the most opulent spot in Utrecht. I visited the castle a couple of weeks ago, together with my dearest friend, Ioana, and it was a lovely Sunday, even with some warm sunshine!  This year I bought  Museumkaart  which allows free entrance to about 400 museums in the Netherlands, De Haar Castle included! Despite the months when the museums were/are closed, I got to use it a coup

Zaanse Schans - Dutch history on the river Zaan

 It's been a while since my last post in March. Despite the pandemic, in May - June, when the restrictions loosened up, I started to go on short trips in Netherlands to explore the nature and iconic places, such Zaanse Schans. You may wonder why I waited so long to visit this place. Well, I've never been a big fan of crowded places, and according to the statistics, Zaanse Schans attracts nearly a million visitors per year and it's one of the Netherlands' best loved attractions. I seized the moment and when I visited the place it was almost deserted, for my own content. Additionally, I did a return journey with my bicycle! From Amsterdam Oost (where I live), is approximatively 20km one way. The route includes a ferry. I took the ferry from Veer Hempontplein because I stopped in West to surprise my friend with a delicious cheesecake that I baked the night before. And also this route went through Zaandam! I had to stop to capture this Who let the ducks out! This is not the
