In Sal, Cape Verde, dinner does not get much fancier than at the exceedingly gamarous @hotelodjodagua, an exclusive clifftop hotel and apartment complex. Its shining attraction is a decadent restaurant jutting over the cliff-side like some beacon calling those desperate to sample its (very pricey!) menu. My purse protested but once I’d caught sight of some of my fellow diners meals, I ordered and ordered and ordered... .
Melting snow, walled cities & that stunning Spanish paisaje..
Me knowing nothing about snow, wildly running onto the ice only to realise I'm slipping and sliding. Not fun. Thank God for the patches of green grass in between the blocks so I could take this picture. My first winter wasn't an absolute failure then 😂
I’ll take one pink palace please
Meet me at the glacier ❄️

Have you ever sniffed this unique glacier air? 💙

When you spend half a day skiing and then follow up with a hike. #sorelegsfordays
Хорошо, что порой достаточно скрипа снега под ногами и горячего чая, чтобы как следует отдохнуть🌲🌲
Wish the buildings at home were as colourful as this 💚💜💙
Did you know...?
The Great Pyramid of Giza (also known as the Pyramid of Cheops) is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza pyramid complex bordering what is now El Giza, Egypt. It is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the only one to remain largely intact.
What do you think about the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World vs. the New 7 Wonders of the World?
For our last night we decided to watch the sunset (and drink lots of beer 🍻) at the rooftop at La Gaurida and it couldn’t have been more perfect!❤️
This one should definitely go up on the top of your bucket list while you’re in Cuba otherwise you’re seriously missing out! 💃🏻

Not a bad view hey!? So I have spent the last few days skiing which has been amazing. I haven’t skied mind you for I think it’s around 10 years. However it’s amazing how I was able to get back into it straight away. Like it had only been a day since. I also realised I was being held back by the fear of falling, but I nailed that one on the head yesterday, lost my skis and all 🤦🏽♀️ but I got back up and kept going. Haha.
Still one of my favorite shops, sweetheart. Still one of my favorite shops.
