The African sun on my skin, a fresh breeze whirling my hair wildly, a view that takes my breath away: endless space, lush green, in between the red earth of Kenya, the blue and gray of the sky and everywhere you see these unbelievably beautiful creatures … zebras that somehow look unreal, as if someone had painted them … giraffes stretching their long necks to catch the best leaves … lions and cheetahs lying lazily under shady bushes … a leopard, well camouflaged in the crown of an acacia … many different antelopes and gazelles, jumping, grazing, relaxing … elephants, these gentle giants. I could watch them for hours. And suddenly everything makes sense … I feel the deepest peace, absolute happiness and an infinite freedom …
After I was back from Morocco we left Korando again for our Team roadtrip around Kisumu. In Kakamega rainforest we watched a beautiful sunset from Liranda Hill, slept in tents and cooked on open fire. In the morning the monkeys wer jumping from one tree to the other, curious about the food we had on our plates. Then we drove to Homabay, had a nice fish lunch before we went on to Rusinga Island in Lake Victoria where we spend the night in a camp at the lake shore. Good friends, profound conversations, bonfire, fireflies and sitting under the stars … a wonderful time!
Being in Kenya didn’t stop me from dreaming about surfing…so I booked a flight to Essaouira in Morocco and spent ten amazing days catching waves, enjoying Marocain food and spending time with my soulmate. Essaouira with its historical medina is a beautiful town, and when it comes to surfing I would always prefer it over Taghazout or Tamraght! My absolute favorite spot, however, was Imsouane, where we were catching some green waves at Cathedral point in the morning, having fish barbecue in the little harbor for lunch whilst waiting for low tide and some looooong lefthanders at Imsouane Bay! Love it ♥
After the surf week in Sagres I took the train from Faro to Lisbon. And I found my new European favorite city! I love the small streets, the flair of the city, the incredible street art in every corner of Lisbon and of course Pastel de Nata! I’m addicted to it! : D That was certainly not the last visit to Lisbon.
