/ Weekend / Wishing everyone a wonderful Friday! ✨ ——— World Cup has just started (anyone else watching??) and Spain’s playing tonight so we’re hitting the town hehe. Nothing better than that ‘World Cup’ atmosphere, u know what I mean? We’re supporting 🇪🇸 of course, seeing as how we’re practically Canarians now (or I like to believe we are), 🇧🇪 , 🇧🇷 and all African nations lol. Not much of an avid football fan, but I love me some World Cup ⚽️ (like most girls? Idk 😐). Who are you supporting??
/ Explore / Found the cutest spot in Masca today! After a long & winding road (getting to Masca is no joke 😭) and sweating through a long walk (walking around Masca is no joke 😂) we stumbled upon the lovely Casa Riquelme ——— Perched on the edge of one of the many mountains surrounding Masca, we were taken aback by the authenticity & aura of this place - and don’t get me started on the scenery 😮 ——— Definitely a good place to stop by if you’re ever on your way to the small picturesque village of Masca 💞
/ Changes / Much more of an I-wear-black-all-day-errday kinda girl, but hey, there’s a first for everything!

Today’s Agenda: Cava, sun and giggles • Working in a sunny country has its perks 🤗 We like to take longer lunch breaks on Wednesdays to decompress and ‘cut’ the week in half. I was also thinking of starting yoga in order to relieve stress & be more ‘in tune’ with my surroundings 🤔 • What do you do to stay zen & motivated during the week?? I would love to know! 💞
/ enchanted / Sometimes all you need is a little splash of color 🌺
A touch of blue 💙
/ Young, Wild & Free / Be crazy. Be stupid. Be silly. Be weird. Be whatever because life is too short to be anything but happy ✨
🍷+☀️+🌸 = smiles & good vibes Feels good to be back 💕
| Perfection | It took a while for me to be comfortable in my own skin. Heck, I’m still learning how to love my body. But you know what? It’s my body & beauty is also accepting yourself - flaws and all. So what if I’ve got stretch marks, cellulite and a lil’ bit of stomach fat. That’s what makes me, me. We forget that it’s okay to be flawed, our imperfections are what make us who we are. Learning how to love & embrace your body may be difficult, but it is one of most amazing things you will ever own 💕
| Positive Vibes | A good life is when you smile often, dream big, laugh a lot and realise how blessed you are for what you have✨ ——— Had the best time @ Seli Safari Zongo - the perfect place to fully immerse yourself in nature and wander through the beauty that is the Bas-Congo 🤩 ——— Even if for a day, simply catching a glimpse of what this country has to offer is a wonderful & unforgettable experience in itself 💕
| The Beauty Of Nature | Taking a moment to stop and admire the beauty of our surroundings made me feel like a tiny part of a massive universe. This feeling of awe - a mixture of both fear & wonder - humbled me in the face of nature’s grandness. ——— Standing in the midst of those waterfalls, with the sun lightly stroking my face & the laughter of my loved ones resonating throughout the forest is something I will cherish forever 💞
Ridin’ through Congo with my woes...🎶 ——— You ever been on a dune/beach buggy? You ever been riding on one through the Congolese woodlands? Hehe, well I finally have! I’ve got to admit, I hate (or rather don’t) drive, but this was something else 🤩 If ever you drop by Mbuela Lodge (about 2 hours away from Kinshasa) you haveee to try the buggy. One word for it: Awesome
| Explore. Dream. Discover | Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations... ——— I might look carefree on this pic but eiishhh! I was on the edge of a 65m deep waterfall and lemme tell you, those rocks I was standing on were slippery as hell 😂. I must admit though, it was frightening but ohhh so thrilling at the same time 🤩 ——— Did you know that DRC is the world’s second biggest green lung after the Amazon? If put in place correctly, it could provide enough water to its inhabitants and for its neighboring countries! Sadly, its expansive rainforests and biodiversity are under threat (mineral extraction, timber removal etc). Idk, I guess it’s something to think about considering the Congo Basin rainforest plays a critical role in regulating the global climate... ——— If anyone has been to Congo and thought about this as well, I would love to know what you think!
