Mainly blue. Very different from the rest of the Iberian Peninsula. Let's all do a rain dance!

My baby is the best! I couldn't be more proud of her kindness and sweetness. Even baby goats seem to acknowledge this wonderful human being! More than thankful, I am blessed with a beautiful and smart daughter. How did this happen?! Gotta love the countryside! #whpthankful

Candy kite (proof of a very weird weekend)
The first time ever I had the opportunity to fly my stunt kite with south winds (Ophelia's courtesy). But now that I realize what south winds mean in Portugal (very hot and dry air = extremely dangerous fires) I hope I don't have this chance so soon. Also, on a side note, when flying your kite do not try to take pics at the same time. Your phone doesn't like sand! 😲

The surfer was so bored he actually looked at the beach in despair. #flatseaproblems

#noedit Just a pink (half) ball of fire... Nothing much, if it weren't for the fact that it's October 8th! In Portugal! And it was hot! And it was an amazing day at the beach... Hope you all had (are having) a good Sunday! ☀️

Summer is back!! Oh yeah! And next weekend we're off to the beach... Totally unusual weather these days. But so good!

Bringing your pet to #geocaching can be risky if you choose to go for the really hard ones. But it can also be very rewarding to include your companion in the most amazing adventures. Moments like this truly reflect the feeling of "mission accomplished", that is the essence of @geocaching, and reinforce your bond to your pet. Luckily for us, Zoot is an amazing dog, maybe I should say "goatdog", that will jump and climb literally EVERY rock, and go all the way to the top! In one of the most beautiful, difficult, and spectacular geocaches in Portugal, he was brave and never let us down.

This is the day we climbed #GCGZCK, Fenda da Calcedónia, to celebrate the beginning of two challenges, Masters and PhD, at PNPG. Parque National Peneda-Gerês, the only National Park in Portugal, is a place of immense natural beauty and cultural traditions, that we aim to get to know better during our "degrees". Good luck to us! 😂
