Bloggers' Open World Awards

Bloggers’ Open World Awards by Momondo

Dear James, I was laying on the couch, scrolling down Instagram, waiting for them to get ready when I saw it: the Bloggers' Open World Awards.

Then, one day,… Continue reading Bloggers’ Open World Awards by Momondo

The Unusual Feeling of Returning Home

Starting fresh means readjusting your habits. And we, humans, are creatures of habit. It means shedding your routine and accepting a new rhythm. It forces you to be flexible and start fresh. You gotta pick and choose the parts of you that match the new environment you have placed yourself in. Embrace the culture shock.… Continue reading The Unusual Feeling of Returning Home

Convento de Cristo, Tomar

*this letter will be written in both English and Portuguese because Bia gets mad at us when we speak English instead of Portuguese. Fair enough* Bia e Lourenço, Apesar de já ter estado várias vezes em Tomar, ainda não tinha tido a oportunidade de ir ao Convento. Quando começou a chover ainda fiquei um pouco… Continue reading Convento de Cristo, Tomar
