LOST IN PARADISE

Hello friends, it’s been a while since I posted last time. There were a lot of things going on but most of all just a lot of work to do. We had the most amazing trip ever.

My husband and I went with my family to Spain. My parents and my two brothers decided to drive over and it took them exactly 24 hours to get to Almeria, Spain. Me and Alejandro flew over to Malaga. We got there on Monday the 12th of August. We were so tired but so happy and excited to go to the beach.

To travel and to feel comfortable we decided to rent a car that way we could go where ever we wanted when ever we wanted. It took us 2 hours to get to Almeria and the weather was just smooth! Roquetas de Mar is a city part of Almeria, it’s a very touristic area and we found such a cute apartment to rent for the two weeks. It was just 400 meters away from the beach, so my morning runs were absolutely amazing!

So there we were… we had two weeks to enjoy and relax to the fullest. On the very first day once we got to the apartment we rested but not the whole day, I really wanted to go to the beach. In the evening I went to the beach with my parents while Alejandro stayed home and slept a bit longer.

And I’m just going to be repeating myself from now on. We went to the beach every single day. I woke up around 8AM and went for a morning run that way I could start my days with a good mood and enjoy all the food I wanted to eat. Around noon we were all ready to drive over to the beach. It took us about 25 minutes to get to the beach called “el Zapillo”. We would rest right in front of some palm trees but close enough to the water.

All of you should know I haven’t been to Spain for the last four years so my skin was like super white. My whole family was just super tanned already and I looked like a freaking cheese right next to them, looool. I just went straight to the water and started swimming. We had bought some diving goggles and snorkel and explored the whole waters. We saw many fishies and so many shells it was just so unbelievably beautiful!

My friends, we ate so much food. There was so much meat and argentine biscuits to try. I ate so much chocolate I thought I was going to be diabetic looool that’s how much sweet I ate. Good thing I was doing my workout in the morning. We even tried this ice cream place called “be waffle” and it was delicious. You could create your own waffle ice cream and OF COURSE mine had NUTELLA and DULCE DE LECHE! daaaaa!

One night we went out to “la feria” it was like an attraction park. There were some games to play and it was so big, I felt like we walked the whole evening. But at the end of the night my husband made it so worth the walk. He won a stuffed animal for me, a dog, we called him Charlie. He is now officially living in Germany with us.

WELCOME OUR NEWEST FAMILY MEMBER: CHARLIE

We can all live in our deepest paradise but each dream comes to an end. Two weeks in paradise weren’t enough to explore but it was enough for my soul and spirit to rest and recharge. I truly needed it, I needed to go somewhere else and explore something new. I needed to swim every day and look for fish. Even though fish aren’t really my best friends I had the best time of my life with those little guys.

Folks, if you have the chance to go somewhere and explore something then do it. It will recharge your spirit and you will be able to focus more on important things. Being lost in a paradise is the best thing you can do, especially if you create your own paradise in your own way.

xo, Carol
