SEA, SUN & SAND

 

They say life is better under the sea, and while I’m not a fan of swimming at the beach (thank you, Jaws I, II and III) I am all in favor of summer escapes, especially if cocktails and good food is involved. So, with a small suitcase, a bag, a bikini from UK brand South Beach Swimwear and an oversized hat I escaped for a week to Lisbon, Portugal along with friends and my inseparable boyfriend-photographer-best-friend-tacos-kitchener.

Despite the fact that this was the first time for most of us in Lisbon, we were lucky enough to find a small beach at Sintra-Cascais’ natural park, secluded from the city, the noise and all those distractions that other beaches (like Barcelona’s) have. Private enough to feel ultra comfortable in a little crochet bikini by South Beach Swimwear and the dramatic hat I bought at the last minute for a deal. Now, if only I could take this little paradise to Barcelona it would be my favorite place for a siesta after work.

I have lots of photos, gorgeous places, charming corners and bites of cream cakes from Portugal to show you little by little, but to summarise it: I totally recommend it, even if you don’t speak a single sentence in portuguese like me.

Dicen que la vida es mejor debajo del mar, y a pesar de que no soy muy fan de nadar en la playa (gracias, Tiburón I, II y III) sí que soy partidaria de los escapes de verano, especialmente si hay cocktails y buena comida de por medio. Así que, con una maleta pequeña, un bolso, un bikini de South Beach Swimwear y mi sombrero enorme me escapé una semana a Lisboa, Portugal en compañía de unos amigos y mi inseparable novio-fotógrafo-mejor-amigo-cocinero-de-tacos.

A pesar de ser la primera vez que algunos de nosotros visitábamos Lisboa, tuvimos la suerte de encontrar una pequeña playa en el parque natural Sintra-Cascais apartada de la ciudad, del ruido y de todas las distracciones que otras playas (como la de Barcelona) tienen. Suficientemente privada como para estar súper cómoda en un bikini pequeño de crochet ajustable de South Beach Swimwear y un sombrero a juego que compré a última hora en rebajas. Ahora, si tan sólo pudiese traer este pequeño paraíso a Barcelona sería mi lugar de siesta ideal para después del trabajo.

Tengo muchas fotos, lugares preciosos, esquinas encantadoras y bocados de pasteles de nata de Portugal que mostrarles, pero en resumen les puedo decir: súper recomendado, aunque no hablen una gota de portugués como yo.
