dreaming of vacation






In the last tag i did, i promised to show you my best vacation ever. In the fall of 2007 my parents invited me and D and my sister and her man to an A M A Z I N G house in the little town of Porte Petro in the tourist paradise Mallorca. I had never in my life dreamt about going to Mallorca, but this was such a magical place, that i can't even believe it was really real. A house, totally secluded, right on the ocean. So beautiful and so quiet. doing nothing but reading good books, eating good food and taking a dip from the scary ladder that went from the cliffs to the ocean -and drying in the cave afterwards. And. i didn't bring a camera. believe it or not i did not have a camera at this time and i never took any pictures. So all i have are these nostalgic photos from my mobile phone + this last one from when the danish interior design magazine Bo Bedre made an article about the house... uuuhhhh... i wanna go back.


Provins: Of course living in a house in a forest or something would be ideal for a dog, but Rufus - and whippets - are a good apartment-dog! he is pretty quiet and calm inside and sleeps alot. In this aspect he is sort of like a cat, search for a spot in the sun to sleep all afternoon. So as long as you can take him someplace to run once in a while he will be happy! we take him to the beach. He does not need a crazy amount of exercise since he is a sprinter. a dog makes an apartment feel so much more like a home.
BB: That sounds scary. i think we have eyes all over the apartment ..except maybe in the bedroom.. hmm..
Maria: Happy weekend! from M + D + R

wow that sound like wonderful vacation. When I ws a child I had been in Mallorca with my parents, but it was not nice at all. we where at a really 'german' place, just everything was made for germans and everything was full of tourist. Not quiet, no nature, not nice at aaalll.
But when we drove around for one day I did really see how beautiful Mallorca can be.
You should just never trie to do your vacation at those tourist spots ..

That's what I need too... A holiday, with time to read a good book and do nothing (else), with a glass of wine with lunch, and a guilt-free doze in the afternoon... And warm weather!

WOOOOW! Det ser SÅ skønt ud! Jeg får nærmest ondt i maven af at kigge på det, så meget længes jeg efter netop sol, varme, fred og afslapning!!!!
Er huset dansk ejet? Hvordan lejer man det? :)
