The last interrail post for now

This post will be the last from the interrail trip with Mie. It means it will also be the end of this kind of traveling diary posts.
It's a buzzkill to make the last, since I made the posts last for around three months. I think the reason for that is a of mix between not really wanting to stop the instant flow of happy summer memories in my mind, but also due to a lot on my agenda here in DK. 
But the end of this reminds me of all the new travels and experiences that haven't even happened yet. 

Here's to an amazing travel!!!! Oh shit it was a freakin blast from start until the end!
Just to mention a few glorious moments: sleeping in dorms with three english boys throwing up everywhere, getting picked up by a "batmobileporsche" on our hitchhike thing in Cote d'Azur, delicious food in Italy, crazy old ladies that wanted us to live with her, sleeping in a sweaty couch for free in Milan, sneeeaaakers heaven mental stages, making new friends across country borders, awesome Barcelona and Lisbon partying, being welcomed and taking absolutely amazing care of by Sergio and João.. and the list is not even close to ending! 
I would def recommend anyone with an open mind to do an interrail. Even if you're not, then GO and get some perspective. Personally I'm not done traveling with a backpack and the feeling of material independence. The world is your playground, if you treat it right. 

Sooo, this last post is heavy loaded with pictures and especially portraits of my handsome and very missed two friends, João and Sergio, and my girl Mie.

10th stop: Ericeira, Portugal pt. 1- Finishing this interrail off with beers, sunsets, surf and beach house partying!

We used the last couple of days of the interail with those good portuguese boys we had become friends with.
 We lived in João's house close to Ericeira beach and basically just listened to music and talked about, you know, the type of philosophical subjects that comes up when you are chilling in the sun with cold beverage in your hand. 
The sunsets were magical and created this soft, warm light. I took too many pictures. It always happens when I'm stoked by sunsets.
While I edited this post I thought about, how amazing isn't it that we have a sunrise and a sunset everyday, and yet the phenonomen is still so enchanted to us. Absolutely love that. 

Miss green leafs winter is definitely present in Denmark right now

And brown skin

and the want to cool off in a pool

Mie, you are such a babe

A sunset from there. Sergio and João told us that you never really can predict the weather in this little town, it's like there is this "mini-climate" (can't remember the word they used to describe it). When we where there most of the time we couldn't see the horizon because of some kind of a sea mist/fog. The next and last post will show it ever better. But I think the fog has something to do with the way the light is at dawn.    

The crew! 

..... Nobody ever dresses up anymore, so we did - and it was a blast! Haha

9th stop: ack in Lisbon - random shots + Out Jazz

Just a few leftovers from Lisbon. We were lucky enough to experience the last Out Jazz for this summer season. This out-door, jazzy, experimental, music event runs every friday and sunday, with a new location each month. So cozy with time for chattering and getting together.  When visiting Lisbon in the summer season Out Jazz should be on your list! 

Off to Ericeira!

8th stop: Algarve, Portugal.

Though we easily could have stayed in Lisbon, we decided to go see a little more of Portugal. After a fun night out in Lisbon, with only one hour of sleep, we took a bus in the morning to go down south. More specific Lagos in Algarve. 
Our original plan was to live in Lagos, which is an (boooooring) touristed town and go to nearby Sagres to surf, since it should be one of the best surf spots in PT. 
But as we were there we realized that almost a month already had went by.. Our interrailing trip was lacking to its end, and we simply didn't had the time to dig into surfing with only two days to do with. 
Instead we explored the walking trails along the coastline, and enjoyed how beautiful our world is naturally created. Photographing this area was a bliss and pure serenity. 

Don't forget the sunscreen!
