Jeg er nødt til at state med at sige at jeg indeed har brudt en regel ved at ligge dette post op. Jeg bruger aldrig, aldrig, ALDRIG iPhone billeder på min blog – og det er ikke ment som et diss til folk der gør det men på min platform er det et no go. Men her er grunden til jeg gjorde en undtagelse og hvorfor, at det her blogpost er vigtigt! På vores sidste aften i Madrid havde vi besluttet at vores middag skulle være work free – det skal de altså nogengange være. Men oh hvad gør man når det sidste sted man spiser er det bedste?! Vi stødte på den her lille restaurant på hjørnet af et eller andet spansk og noget andet spansk da vi var på vej hen til et bao sted jeg havde læst om på nettet. Sebastian stoppede op og sagde “Se hvor lækkert det der sted ser ud!” jeg blev selvfølgelig øjeblikkelig fornærmet, slog med nakken og sagde “jamen hvis du ikke gider spise bao så skal du da bare sige det.” (meget typisk mig) – så min søde mand sagde så at vi jo selvfølgelig skal spise bao så vi gik videre. Bao stedet var så lukket om mandagen fordi en hvis rødhåret person ikke havde gjort hendes research godt nok. Sebastian lyste op og sagde “ejj kan vi så godt spise der hvor det så så dejligt ud?!” Hvad skulle jeg sige? Nej? Så vi gik til bare og god dammit han havde ret, det så virkelig lækkert ud. Det smagte fantastisk, det var virkelig venligt prissat og stedet havde en vidunderlig atmosphere. Menuen var en blanding af spanish, mexicansk og amerikansk. Stedet var fyldt til renden hele tiden og af god grund. Vi fik 3 forretter, 3 hovedretter, en kande lemonade og 2 flasker vand for 40 euros. Jeg følte mig næsten en smule ked af det, velvidende at jeg ikke kunne spise der on the regular. Men hvis du er i Madrid anbefaler jeg virkelig denne fine restaurant, det var super skønt, insta venligt og pakkede med lokale. God fornøjelse!

english: First thing first, I have broken a rule with this post. I never ever post pictures on my blog that are taken with an iPhone – and that is not meant as an insult to those who do that on their blogs BUT for my platform it is a no go. But here is why I made the exception and why, therefore, this blogpost is important! On our last night in Madrid we went out to dinner and we decided it would be work free – sometimes it needs to be, right? But oh what do you do when the last place you eat is the best?! We stumbled upon this little restaurant on the corner of something and something as we were headed to a Bao place that I had read about online. Sebastian stopped and said, “wow that looks so nice!”, I instantly got offended saying “well if you don’t want the Bao you can just say so!” (typical me response) – so sweet as my man is, we went on to the Bao place that was of course closed on Mondays because I hadn’t done my research properly. Sigh. Sebastian almost glowed as he said “can we eat at that place with the plants outside then?!”. What was I gonna say? No? So we went back and god dammit he was right, it did look amazing. It also tasted amazing, was greatly priced and just had the most fantastic atmosphere. The menu was a mixture of everything good. There was some Spanish dishes, some Mexican dishes and some good old American burgers.  The place was completely stuffed and for good reason. We had 3 starters to share, 3 main courses, a chug of lemonade and 2 bottles of water for only 40 euros. I almost felt sorry for myself that I couldn’t eat there on the regular – it was just wonderful. If you are in Madrid I can only recommend this place, it was a truely authentic, super insta friendly and packed with locals! Enjoy!

PARTY AT THE PALACE

Jeg er nødt til at indrømme at jeg faktisk ikke er så meget til sightseeing. Ikke fordi det ikke er spændende, jeg har bare en anden måde at se byer på. Jeg elsker bare at gå, ud i det blå og så ser man det man ser. MEN – undtagelser må laves en gang i mellem og min undtagelse er altid, at hvis jeg kan komme ind og se en eller anden form for palads, et slot eller anden kongelig bolig, så gør jeg det. Det skal ikke være nogen hemmelighed at jeg ligesom mange andre piger altid har drømt om en dag at skulle giftes med en prins, gå i de store kjoler og danse i slotssalen. Ak ja, Disney har ikke eksisteret forgæves! Paladset i Madrid var storslået, smukt og overdådigt. Man måtte ikke tage billeder i selve paladset men ude i “gården” fik vi hurtigt snappet nogen alligevel. Hvis du er fra europa er der forskellige tidspunkter på ugen hvor du kan komme ind og se paladset helt gratis, du skal bare huske dit pas! Det er virkelig turen værd!

english: I have to admit, I’m not really a sightseeing type a gal. Not because it can’t be a good way to see the city but it’s not for me. I love to just walk out the door, into the blue and see what I see. BUT – exceptions are here to be made right? Is that how that saying goes? Anyway, you know what I mean. Whenever I get the chance to see a palace or any kind of royal sort of housing, I take it. I, like many girls, have dreamt of the day I would marry a prince, wear the flawless dresses and dance in the ballroom. Ah yes, Disney was put on this earth for a reason. The palace in Madrid was grand, beautiful and lavish. It’s not allowed to photograph inside the palads so we sneaked a couple of snaps in the court yard. If you are european there are different time sloths a week were you can see the palace for free, just bring your passport! It’s worth the trip!

Hej fra Spanien! Como estas?! 3 års intensiv spansk undervisning i gymnasiet og jeg kan knap nok bestille en øl. Det er fantastisk! Anyway, hej med jer og hej fra Spanien! Min onkel bor i Malaga så han har fixet et kæmpe hus hvor vi kan være hele familien. Det er så smukt her, vi har en fantastisk udsigt udover havet og en kæmpe pool. Jeg er virkelig taknemmelig for at jeg får lov at nyde sommeren syd på, tænk det stadig regner i Danmark – sikke en sommer hva? Anyways, i dag skal jeg til Granada. De har åbenbart en helt fantastisk bazar, jeg glæder mig super meget til at gå på opdagelse i den. Jeg håber jeg kan finde et fint stykke porcelæn eller måske et par håndbroderet sandaler, elsker at shoppe lokalt! Ha en smuk dag!

english: Hello from Spain! Como estas?! I had 3 years of spanish in high school and I can barely order a beer. It’s great! Anyway, hello my friends – hello from Spain! This week I am in Spain with my whole family. My uncle lives here in Malaga so he has arranged a big house for all of us to stay in for the week. It’s so beautiful here, we have an amazing view of the sea and a huge pool! So happy I get to enjoy summer in the south, it’s raining in Denmark – so much for summer huh? Anyway, today I am headed to Granada, they apparently have this amazing bazar, I can’t wait to explore it. I hope I find a nice piece of pottery or some unique beaded sandals, I love to shop locally. Have a great day!

Ja det er korrekt læst ud fra billedet, det er mig som løber væk fra mit ansvar og forsøger at gemme mig for vores lufthavns chauffør. Jeg sværger da jeg landede i København i torsdags fik jeg en øjeblikkelig depression. Hvis ikke det var fordi at jeg allerede nu sidder i en lufthavn igen på vej mod spanien ville jeg højst sandsynligt være blevet i flyet og håbet på det fløj tilbage til Grækenland på et tidspunkt. Jeg savner Grækenland men jeg er så lykkelig for at jeg skal på ferie med hele min familie, det bliver så sjovt! Vi snakkes ved venner, knus til jer!

 english: Yes that is actually me running away from my responsibilities and trying to hide from our airport pickup. I swear when I landed in Copenhagen on Thursday I almost got a depression. If it wasn’t for the fact that I am already at the airport again now headed to spain I might have tried to turn the flight around or just stayed on board hoping it would return to Greece sometime. I miss Greece but I am so happy to be going to Spain with my family. It’s going to be so much fun! Talk soon lovers!

Det er ikke hverdag man får lov at opleve den slags luksus jeg har mens jeg har været i Grækenland. Alting har bare været on point! Menneskene, maden, hotellerne – det har virkelig været en oplevelse. Noget jeg også har nydt er at jeg virkelig har fået lov til at pleje mig selv hvilket er noget jeg ikke får gjort så meget i hverdagen. Domes Noruz har nogle helt fantastiske spa faciliteter som jeg har elsket at bruge mens jeg har været på besøg. Bortset fra at stedet er smukt indrettet med fantastisk blå mosaic tilbyder spa’et også fuldstændig skræddersyet behandlinger af de lækre britiske produkter Elemis. De har også et steam room, en sauna og en skøn pool. Oh, jeg elsker ferie!

english: it’s not everyday you get to experience luxury like I have on this vacation to Greece. Everything has been on point. The people, the food, the hotels – wauw, it’s really been something. But one thing I have also enjoyed so much has been the beauty of the self pampering I have been allowed to live through. Domes Noruz has the most amazing spa facilities that I have loved taking advantage of! Besides being beautifully decorated with the most amazing blue mosaic the spa offers tailor made treatments using the wonderful british brand Elemis. They also have a steam room, a sauna and an amazing heated pool! Gosh, I just love vacations!

Jeg elsker hvordan man kan se alt på internettet inden man ankommer til et hotel. Man ved allerede hvordan udsigten vil være, hvordan rummene ser ud og hvilke farver de køre på hotellet. Da jeg så Domes Noruz online vidste jeg med det samme at jeg ville lave et bronzy, beige, dewy, yummy makeup look som kunne matche de smukke omgivelser. Alt her er beige, hvidt og brunt – et sandt instagram paradis. Den nye Coco family bronze kollektion fra Marc Jacobs er holdt i helt hvid og ser frisk, lækker og sommerlig ud – helt perfekt til dette look. Jeg har holdt makeuppen simpel med lidt glitter på øjenlågene og alt holdt i brun i stedet for sort så det ikke bliver for hårdt. Fregnerne er selvfølgelig valgfrie men i den her græske sol kan jeg ikke holde mine væk fra mit ansigt. God fornøjelse!

 english: I love how you can see everything on the internet before you arrive at a hotel. You know what the view will be like, what the rooms look like and what the colors at the hotel is. So when I saw Domes Noruz online I instantly wanted to do a bronzy, beige, dewy, yummy makeup look to match the beauty of the hotel. Everything here is beige, white and brown – a real instagram miracle. The new Coco family bronze collection from Marc Jacobs is kept in white and looks beautiful, summery and fresh so it fits perfectly. I kept my look simple with a touch of glitter on the eyelids, everything in brown in stead of black to give a soft summer feel to the face. Freckles are optional but I can’t keep mine of my face in this greek sun. Enjoy!

Vi er endelig i Chania, vi bor på det fantastiske hotel, Domes Noruz, som er en del af den internationale kæde, Autograph collection. Her er helt fantastisk og MEGET varmt. Chania er æld gammel og har så meget historie at man nærmest bliver blæst bagover når man går rundt. Kreta har været besat op til flere gange og særligt Chania bære virkelig præg af de mange folkeslag og religioner som har boet på øen. Laura og jeg besøgte både gamle Chania og nye Chania – vi købte is i de små gader og købte veninde halskæder i en turistfælde butik. Det var helt perfekt. Her dansende i aftensolen, kys fra Grækenland.

english: We are finally in Chania, vi are staying at the fantastic, Domes Noruz, that is apart of the beautiful Autograph collection. It’s amazing here and SO hot! Chania is super old and has so much history that you almost feel blown backwards when walking around. Crete has been under occupation several times and it is especially visible in Chania. Many different nations and religions has occupied the island through time. Laura and I visited both old Chania and new Chania – we had ice cream in the corky streets and bought friendship necklaces in a tourist shop. It was absolutely perfect. Here, dancing in the evening light, kisses from Greece.

Det er ikke hver dag at man (som voksen) kommer op i et treehouse. Jeg kan faktisk bekræfte at jeg ikke har været i et treehouse siden jeg blev “for sej til at lege” – som man åbenbart gør når man bliver teenager. Hvad der er udover det sædvanlige på Ekies resortet her i Grækenland er at hotellet er tilpasset naturen, naturen er ikke fjernet for at tilpasse sig hotellet. Og derfor, siden skoven nærmest fortsætter ud i vandet, har de selvfølgelig bygget et treehouse. Jeg er nødt til at påpege at det er fuldstændig fantastisk. Det er moderne, næsten chic men på samme tid er det bygget så ledes at det gynger lidt når man går op i det, fuldstændig som et ægte treehouse. Jeg er vild med det! Laura og jeg har både drukket lemonade mens vi har slynget os i sofa området samt spist en 10 retters menu mens vi sad og nød udsigten. Jeg har lige pludselig et underligt behov for a bo oppe i trækronerne. Helt fantastisk.

english: It’s not everyday that you (as an adult) get to climb up into a treehouse. I can actually confirm that I have never had the pleasure of doing just so since I got “too cool to play” – as you somehow think you get when you become a teenager. What is beyond special at the Ekies resort here in Greece is that the hotel is build to fit nature, nature is not removed to fit the hotel. And so, since the forrest almost touches the beach, they of course build a treehouse on their water front deck. I have to say, it is absolutely marvelous. It’s modern, even chic – but at the same time the whole structure kinda wobbles as you go up the stairs. Just like a real treehouse, I am in love. Laura and I have both enjoyed drinks, slung across the sofa area up there but also enjoyed a marvelous 10 course meal watching the sunset. I suddenly feel the urge to live above ground. It’s absolutely wonderful.

LETS PADDLE FAR AWAY

Det er en smule svært at være glad for vandsport når man bor i Danmark, eller det er det ihvertfald for mig. Problemet er at jeg ikke kan lide koldt, mørkt vand som vi har hjemme. Jeg elsker når vandet er klart og blåt som himlen og så gør det mig virkelig ikke noget hvis jeg nærmest kan se bunden. Det er kun et plus. Så i kan nok forstille jer, mig klappe i mine små hænder da jeg fandt ud af at der tilbydes paddle boarding, kajakker, windsurfing og sejling på vores resort her i Grækenland. Fordi vandet i Grækenland, ja det møder sådan cirka alle mine krav til det perfekte hav. Jeg havde aldrig prøvet at paddle boarde før men jeg var super spændt! Jeg kan nu meddele at det overhovedet ikke er skræmmende når vandet er stille og man nærmest kan nå bunden af havet med sin padle – selv når man er godt 20 – 30 meter fra kysten. Perfekt! Jeg synes vand sport på Ekies er ideelt når man er begynder fordi resortet ligger inde i en bugt hvor der er særligt lavvandet. Jeg kan allerede fortælle jer at jeg har tænkt mig at bruge mange timer, over de næste dage, på et bræt. Det er slet ikke svært, thank god!

english: I suppose it’s difficult being really fond of water sports when you live in Denmark, it is for me anyway. The problem is that I don’t like cold, dark water like we have at home. I like it clear, crisp and blue as the sky. So you can imagine my joy when I noticed that paddle boarding, kayaking, windsurfing and sailing is offered at our resort here in Greece. Because in Greece, the water is divine and meets all my demands for the perfect sea. I had never tried paddle boarding before but I was eager to try it! I am happy to announce that it is not scary at all when the water is calm and you can almost reach the bottom with your paddle – even when you are 20 – 30 meters away from shore. Perfect. I think water sports at Ekies is especially great for beginners because the resort is located in a quite and beautiful bay where the water is wonderfully shallow! I can already tell you now that I will be paddle boarding for hours during the next couple of days. I just have to do it again and again!
