A new season starts, a new day begins

Exploring

I believe you could divide the world into two types of people: those who are on time, always prepared and write the posts on time… And those who always run late. In the blogosphere at least. Ok, no, I just changed my mind: I believe we all do this thing off-time. Unless you are doing…

Morning rituals and other summer life updates

Creating, Exploring

As I get back to the flow of sharing things around here, summer is getting to an end. And I don’t say that easily. It’s breaking me to see myself already wearing my soft pullovers and zipper ups indoors while the beach is still calling me with warm waters. Still, I’ll try to ignore all…

How to remove ads : the most effective way

Exploring

Internet is a great place for businesses and for marketing. We all know it. But why? Basically, because the internet makes it a lot easier to find the right audience for any product. Also, everybody is consuming a lot of content, which means that our behaviour makes it even easier for companies to reach us.…

Rolling time – video edit

Some days I roll around, some days I cruise around. This video is one of the rolling ones. There’s not too much to it, just a casual day.  Thought I would get some footage and then decided to edit it to make a little video. I’m sure you won’t be enjoying it as much as…

Always Wondering ~ Sometimes Wandering

Exploring

Grab your backpack, fill it with your fav equipment and leave the house without knowing what time your are coming back.

You little beach! ~ Ode to my beach

  Oh these little beaches! White sand (at least before the winds blow and the sea rises) and blue, green and purple waters. Fluffy foam and funny waves… The beach is where I go when I just want to go somewhere. Where I go on my mind to think, dream and relax. I love where…

Don’t cry for Summer, cry for waves

Exploring

Summer doesn’t want you to be sad. She is not going that far, and she’s coming back in 9 months. She’s just going on a trip, and you could even join her. But the sea… ahhh the sea. She is not so kind. She’s that kind of girl who likes to play with your feelings.…

Tides are changing – Tidal knowledge for surfers

  THIS POST WAS SPONSORED BY MY SURFING DREAMS (JK) Tides are a funny thing. When we think about the beach we don’t usually think about the tides.

The perfect summer adventure : Down the river

Uncategorised

In the middle of July under the raging sun not all activities outdoors seem so appealing. These days are calling best for top-of-mountain, by-the-beach, and by-the-river time.
