places: keeping cool in water

Screen Shot 2014-09-02 at 15.11.13

Today is just too hot to do anything but laying next to or be in the pool, with shadow breaks playing Yatzy on the veranda. We do it the Spanish way today and will go down to the beach around 4-5pm when it is not as hot.

Here are some more go pro moments I captured yesterday when we all went down to our secret favourite restaurant with its very own beach.

Screen Shot 2014-07-26 at 10.23.03I prepared all the packing yesterday because I thought I would need to spend the afternoon in the CSM library down the road to finalise a report. But as by magic I started writing at breakfast, and a few hours later I was done! I have now submitted it and I’m ready for holiday! Matthew and Moa are still at work. Meeting them when they finish around 6 and then we’re off the the airport and Ibiza! Tomorrow 3 more friends are coming down. Can’t wait. 2 weeks of 30 degrees and sunshine!


places: 4 more days until paradise

Because I know that in 4 days I’ll be in 30 degrees sunshine on my paradise island Ibiza (for the 3rd time this year – crazy!). In this photo I’m enjoying the tents upon tents with hippie clothes and jewellery at a market on the north part of the island. I now regret not buying that €10 dream silk dress…

photo 2Jennifer is in town visiting me for 8 whole days. Loving it! I took what was going to be my morning off, and ended up being the whole day. I wanted to show her Hampstead Heath which is around the corner from me but we ended up with so much more – Hampstead Village, walk through Kentish Town and vintage shopping. Awesome day.


topic: earth overshoot day


02c25f7863d68da8622d1767b6ee46c0Hey guys – I forgot to tell you – but did you know it was Earth Overshoot Day yesterday. It means that we have in 8 months used what earth has budgeted for the planet for a year. For the rest of the year, we will maintain our ecological deficit by drawing down local resource stocks and accumulating carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. We will be operating in overshoot! Read more about it here and calculate your footprint on earth.

topic: my loves birthday


HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my awesome love Matthew. Love you forever <3

Tonight we’re celebrating! Going to Story restaurant. We’re trying out a 6 course tasting menu together with wine they have selected especially for us. Such a treat!

My birthday present to Matthew was an experience which we are going to have together when in Zimbabwe around New Years – a helicopter flight over the Victoria Falls!
