Travel

No formaggio, please.

Finally a more current travel report..

In April this year I went to Sicily with my boyfriend for a few days – my first vegan vacation!
I was a little worried about getting vegan food there but it was absolutely no problem. In Italy you can always eat pasta with vegetable sauce, pizza without cheese, antipasti,.. You just have to make it clear to the waiters which can be a little tricky if you’re not talking any Italien, like me. So I just always said “no formaggio, no formaggio” and made funny gestures. 😀 So it really was no problem.

No accommodation? No problem.

The first time (seems I had many first times within the last years 😉 ) I went on vacation without booking an accommodation was 2013 when I went to Tenerife with my boyfriend. Well, okay, we booked one but just for 2 days via airbnbWe stayed in Puerto de la Cruz for 2 days and I really enjoyed it because I had never lived in a big city like this before so it was really exciting to have a room right in the center. The only thing that was a little annoying was that it took such a long time to find a parking spot there. It’s said that about half of the people driving the car through the city are actually just searching for a free parking spot. 😀 In Puerto de la Cruz my boyfriend got himself a secondhand surfboard. I also wanted to have one but we couldn’t find a beginner board.

How my second time at the ocean made me a surfer.

Just kidding, it didn’t. 😀

Like I mentioned in my post about Portugal, I wanted to take surfing classes. So 2012 I went to Bretagne/France together with my boyfriend and we booked classes for beginners. I took two weeks, he took one. He already was able to surf but not that well so he decided it couldn’t harm to learn more about the right technique. I was quite happy because so I didn’t have to go there on my own with all my excitement. We stayed at a campground again but this time we had a small bungalow which was pretty cosy.. and cheap of course. We found it at Camping de la Torche.

How my first time at the ocean made me a runner.

The first time ever I got to see the Atlantic ocean (or any ocean) was in 2011 in Portugal. It was also just my second flight ever and the first and so far only time I was flying alone. My boyfriend stayed in Portugal for 4 weeks and I joined for the last 2 weeks because sadly I couldn’t take more time off from work.

We stayed in a small tepee at a campground in Ericeira because I don’t really like tents too much and it was really cheap.
