…I was here, in Normandy, France. The place is called les Falaises d’Etretat and is as you can see, a very dramatic and beautiful place. In February, there are very cold winds blowing in from the sea here and the rain can feel like nails on your skin as it whips you in the face. Luckily, Normandy is famous for their magnificent crêpes, and there are many places serving you mulled wine and French specialties when you had enough of this splendid view and the wild nature outside.
At this time in my life, I was in the middle of a very big project. I was still working, studying, struggling with the renovation of my house, raising a child solo, having LOADS of private issues and commuting to Spain almost weekly, it was a nightmare now when I think about it. Life has been very rough against me at times. But looking at those pictures, I know that I also lived some beautiful moments. Actually, many of them, I must try to forget about the ugly parts of 2018 and remember views and moments like these. Standing in front of the storming sea, with the wind blowing in my hair, a croissant or two in my stomach and many dreams and inspirational thoughts about the future exploding like fireworks in my head. Beautiful moments, moments to bring you energy in darker times.
I have been lucky enough to explore many beautiful destinations around the world, but the country where I have found most treasures, is definitely France. Even the smallest little village, can be hiding something magical. Buildings looking like masterpieces, amazingly tasty food, the most authentic and rare personalities. I have not yet discovered the whole Spain, there is still much to see here and I have heard a lot about many magical destinations in this country so my expectations are very high, but so far, my dear Scandinavia as well as France are my favourite places in the world. <3
Wish you a fantastic friday and hey, we are almost there – THE WEEKEND!
