Seeking Adventures in SpainFull post
When I fell in love with a Spanish guy, I didn’t realize that I was also falling in love with a whole country. Living in Spain for the past 6 months, and exploring from misty mountaintops to wild seasides, has shown me just how much one tiny country can hold. As the days get longer, and warmer, I’m hoping to inspire some of your own adventures by sharing some of my favourite places.
The healing power of the OceanFull post
When Sara and Victor from Superando talk about the excitement of a Stand Up Paddle session, you imagine something beautiful and emotional. You think, there are children laughing, relaxing and excited. But until you experience this, you don't understand the real impact it has on you.
Voices of SkjalfandiFull post
In the past few years, tourism has been the main economic structure in Húsavík. This town, that traditionally lived only on fishing and occasionally whaling, realized that the presence of whales in their area could be exploited in a different way. The boats that were dedicated to hunting them were converted into boats designed for whale watching. Soon, it became the main economic activity for this remote place.However, the lack of whale watching regulations in the area makes this tourism unsustainable.

Snow SurfingFull post
Every morning, after reading the avalanche report, we took our split-boards and touring skis, and decided which mountain to climb. For the steepest parts and most exposed slopes, we had to take snow profiles for deciding whether to continue ascending or not (the chamois didn’t care too much about it, though). To learn to read maps according to avalanche reports and to learn to read the profile of the snow for decision making was a very informative and interesting part of the whole thing.
Eye-To- Eye With A Whale: How It Feels To Swim With HumpbacksFull post
There are those moments in life that are difficult to describe. They are so unlike anything else you’ve experienced that they leave you feeling overwhelmed, emotional and dazed.

The Meaning of Surfing to me during PregnancyFull post
It has been very special for me having surfed during my pregnancies. Catching a wave whilst having one of the most important people in my life inside my tummy is one of the most regarding feelings I’ve ever had. I think about the times when I'll be telling my sons when they are older, that the first waves they rode were inside “mummy’s” tummy.
