Day 5 - Vamos a la playa

Today the sun was on our side most of the day. We woke up early and went to check out Playa de Los Christianos. It was only 20 minutes from our place.
This beach has golden sand and is close to the port with the same name. Next to this one is another beach, more beautiful from my point of view: Playa de Las Vistas. We had breakfast to a terrasse with balcony. After I finished my breakfast I went for a swim.
I got almost one hour to recharge my batteries on sun. What can I say?! The water is not so warm but the hot sun helps after you get out.
Then we went to Siam park, an aqua park. Yeah.. Not my thing. I don't like adrenaline.  We didn't stay too much because the water was only 2-3 degrees warmer than the ocean water. I checked out the beach. They have artificial waves :)). A little bit of tan, a ride on a river, where you are pushed by the water. If most of the way it's in slow-motion, before the finish there is a slide. For the pros that slide is low level but for me it was too much. The nicest part of this was that I ended up under an aquarium with sharks :)). The other attractions of the park were to high level, so no thanks!
They found that in Adeje there should be a beach club with heated swimming pool, so we went to check out that one. As I was suspecting, the water was not that warm but we stayed anyway. Because the weather was not so good (a little bit cloudy and windy) the entrance was free. We were the last ones to go. We caught the sunset here. The place had a nice view with the swimming pool on the edges.
After that we went back to the usual place, that Irish pub. Tonight was singing the same player from  two nights ago. I think I was the youngest person in the room, the average age was 45+. I am impressed they all still have the energy to enjoy life and good music. Cheers to that!

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

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)

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
