Finally I am happy to show you our result from our great shooting trip to Arrifana, Portugal. I was super stoked to travel with Beni and Hansi to that country, was it the first time ever that I have been traveling to Portugal. I know many people will think now, well why – it is so close to Austria. Haha The reason for why I haven’t been in Portugal earlier is probably the fact that I have been exploring all around the world expect in Europe that much. But to be honest I just fell in love with that tiny little place called Arrifana and its beaches around. We enjoyed the warm weather, the beautiful beaches and the lovely landscape to the fullest.
We have been exploring that place in our lovely bus – the roadtrip was fabulous. We explored the waves around Monte Clerigo, just loved it to dive into the sea. I didn’t wash my hair that much – the salt in my hair makes it looking so healthy and wavy. Back on a surfboard felt great too, I haven’t been surfing for a while. Those waves and the cold salty water crushing your skin was super energizing. As I really tried to improve my surfing skills, we have been practicing pretty much every day.
While we have been exploring the little towns around I also just thought I need to keep up the cool surfer lifestyle and I just spent my whole days on a longboard and tried my skills in a skateboard park which used to be a swimming pool. The bowl was so much fun! I guess you didn’t expect to read about my surfing and skateboard skills in PEAKLIFE – but to be honest I simply love to try new sports. The boys and I pretty much enjoyed every cool summer night sitting on a fire place. We had bbq and some beers while we made friends.
