I have been born and raised in Rio de Janeiro. Copacabana is without a doubt my favorite place to walk. A place that I lived for many years and that is still my favorite today. The energy of the people, the beauty of nature, the explosion of colors was the reason why Tom Jobim named Copa The Princess of the Sea. Every time I need an injection of energy I visit the streets of Copacabana. Visiting Copacabana always makes me smile, makes me feel that life is beautiful and I always leave the city full of inspiration.
Below I leave the lyrics of Copacabana composed by the genius of Brazilian Bossa Nova, Tom Jobim and I invite you to listen to it. Enjoy!
Existem praias tão lindas cheias de luz
Nenhuma tem o encanto que tu possuis
Tuas areias, teu céu tão lindo
Tuas sereias sempre sorrindo
Copacabana princesinha do mar
Pelas manhãs tu és a vida a cantar
E á tardinha o Sol poente
Deixa sempre uma saudade na gente
Copacabana o mar eterno cantor
Ao te beijar ficou perdido de amor
E hoje vivo a murmurar só a ti
Copacabana eu hei-de amar
My favourite walk is to walk through the town of Byron Bay, grab a coffee and head to the beach or up to the lighthouse. Watching the sunrise or sunset, surfers, dolphins and whales. Byron Bay is such a majical and unique place.
My home away from home, the British Virgin Islands! Sunday mornings were hiking days and I had a few lucky occasions to join in on the fun. Walks in the rain or even getting caught in the bush without a machete still bring up fond memories. One small hike even brought us to a kayak spot for a little trip around the bay. With the help of our fearless hiking leader, this map was created as the group continues to hike around the island and provide me video and photo updates while being locked in Colorado. I can’t wait for our new adventures!
The first lockdown caught me far from home, in the small town of Batumi, Georgia, on the Black sea coast. My boyfriend and I spent hundreds of hours walking the city. Those walks filled us with peace and gave us a sense of tranquility in front of an uncertain future during the beginning of the global pandemic. This map shows a few of the most iconic places in Batumi such as Batumi Boulevard, the Ali and Nino statue, and the original railway station.
Salvador...It’s my birth and childhood city, where I lived until move to São Paulo. I have the fondest memories about places I used to go with my parents. Small (great) pleasures. This is what my inside child remembers of a ( today) very chaotic but super beautiful and charming city. It was the first capital of Brazil, what makes it unique in many ways.
This is one of our favorites because it’s never the same walk twice! There are soooo many ways to get from the Mission to the beach & each one is prettier than the next. You can wander til your heart’s content & I promise each time you take the walk you’ll always see something new😀
Monterey is a small coastal town with a perfectly preserved rich history, and a bustling tourist center abundant with diversity. There are gorgeous views, friendly people and tons of delicious food to try! Walking in Monterey is very enjoyable, as you can feel salty and misty breeze on your face and enjoy a comfortable weather almost at any time of the year.
I love grocery shopping, it's therapeutic. And heading to the neighbourhood supermarket is probably the most 'exciting' moment in my life these days. In Singapore, the new normal now is having to put on masks, have our IDs scanned and temperature checked before we're allowed into the supermarkets. It's also interesting to observe what everyone is buying these days to stock up at home. Stuff that people used to panic buy - eggs, hand sanitizer, toilet paper - are now fully stocked. Instead, kimchi, pasta and baking goods are flying off the shelves. It's also a bummer that everyone else loves sour cream and onion chips as much as I do. What are people stocking up on in your area, and what are your personal essential items to tide you through this stay home period? Keep a safe distance and stay healthy!
This place is special to me because the beaches in the San Francisco Bay Area are extremely beautiful and so easy to reach by foot or bike or car or bus! And, the coffee is amazing! I take hikes at one of these places on a weekly basis. I recommend them all!
This place is special to me because this beautiful Balearic town evokes sweet memories and time spent both daydreaming and making important life decisions. It feels like a safe cocoon for one to take time and explore all the options ahead while being inspired by the colourful food and design that awaits in every restaurant, gallery & shop. Palma for me represents freedom, possibilities and abundance of life itself!
