Paragliding – Parasliding

Ticking off on that bucketlist big time! I couldn’t have thought of a nicer place than Sierra Nevada to do my first time paragliding (or parapenting as they call it here). Weather conditions were perfect: 25 degrees, full sun and nice thermal. In the morning I woke up jumping up and down like a child…

Intense sadness can always be cured by nature.. Capileira – Alpujarras – Andalucia

Shooting Stars

Driving up to Sierra Nevada at 2500 mts for the Perseid meteor shower is rewarding and beyond. It threw me back to childhood when I used to lie down in the grass and watch the stars with my dad. Never stopped counting, simply cannot stop looking at them. They still have the same magical effect…

Once in a Blue Moon

Another night on the hill at Ermita de San Miguel Alto. Best spot in the city to watch a full moon (after watching the sunset on the other side). This time it’s a blue moon. That means the second full moon in a month. Happens ‘once in a blue moon’ or about every three years.Lying…

Sunset Ermita de San Miguel Alto

My absolute favourite spot in Granada is Ermita de San Miguel Alto. Sunset, watching the moon rise from behind the mountains, all magical! You have a 360 degree view over the city. This is what I missed so much when I was living in Amsterdam. With these temperatures it’s a bit of a challenge to…

Most beautiful shell I ever found. Cuesta Maneli,…

Sunsetsucker

Je hebt van die dagen dat het goed is dat iemand je aan je haren je huis uitsleurt.. Vooral als je dan naar iemands huis met zwembad in de bergen gaat waar de temperatuur een heel stuk aangenamer is en je ook nog eens beloond wordt met een prachtige zonsondergang. Charging the batteries šŸ™‚ Sunset…

Fighting The Elements

Perfect spot to feel the emptiness of everything with all your senses. All the elements were there and I could feel them from within me. Still not sure if I’m happy to feel these things. A bit less wind and waves would do fine too. Maybe it’s just called being me.It’s in Tarifa by the…

Wild horses in La DoƱana

This picture speaks for itself. I love the energy in it. These wild horses were running back and forth in this immense field. Playing like young children, leaving dust behind. I had to take this photo during a bumpy bus ride so I’m extra pleased how it turned out. The second one from the left…
