What is the common point between Marisa Peer and Jim Kwik? They both make us modify our habits as a way of keeping our brain young and sharp. It can be brushing our teeth with the unusual hand or traveling to use our skills to adapt and adjust to a new place. The aim is to widen our comfort zone while using our brain to keep it sharp.
A typical day as a single mother going on holiday with the children means joy and simplicity. I start my day by recording four videos for you my friend, my sister. Then, the kids have breakfast at the hotel, while I eat the fresh raw food I buy each morning at the market. Afterwards, we jump on the trampoline/rent bikes. We simply make the most of the beach, the small beach restaurants and the ever present beautiful sun. Yes indeed, a typical day as a single mother finishes early. However, I must confess that, even if I was only by myself or in a relationship, it would still be such a pleasure to go to bed early, take care of myself and wake up early the next day.
Yummy and healthy nutrition. Simple, vegan and fresh. It is always possible to find a solution to stay raw vegan, even when traveling.
Let’s start with these adorable fresh strawberries:
delicious fresh fennel:
beautiful raw dessert:
and a smoothie:
I traveled to Quarteira, Portugal with the children. I really recommend this beautiful place.
The children and I enjoyed delicious freshly made smoothies at Jungle Juice (Rua do Leste edifício maré viva – Calçadão de Quarteira, Algarve, Portugal):
Their Instagram is @_junglejuicebar_
They also make fresh juices:
They can add to your smoothies raw cacao, hemp seeds powder or acai. A healthy and nutritious delight for our body. Thank you Jungle Juice!
The beach at Quarteira is so beautiful.
The sand is very clean.
I went almost every day to the restaurant Girassol for the children. Their Instagram account is @cafe_restaurante_girassol
Their food is so fresh. Everything is homemade.
The cherry on the cake? From the terrace of Girassol, you can enjoy a view on the sea!
The only reason I did not order is that I am raw vegan 😉 The children loved this place so much though!
In Quarteira, I highly recommend you pay a visit to TicketLand. They speak English and Portuguese and have the best tips to make the most of the Algarve area.
Thanks to TicketLand, we rented bikes and went from Quarteira to Vilamoura.
Please find below all the details about TicketLand in Quarteira.
Enjoy your trip to Quarteira, Portugal!
Minimalism is the secret in many areas of our lives, including travel.
I am reflecting on travel. I am aware of my capacity to adjust and adapt. For some weird reason, I find myself at home very rapidly in many places abroad. I do not feel attached to my country of birth.
Yet I lost of bit of my desire to travel to as many countries as possible. I find myself willing to grow some kind of roots somewhere peaceful. This is new.
One of my friends sees travel as running from something. I disagree. Travel opens our mind. Thanks to traveling abroad, I found myself. However, to travel and to live abroad is slightly different. I shall keep you updated about this as I prepare to move abroad for the second time in my life.
If you travel to Djerba in Tunisia, I highly recommend a visit to DjerbaExplore, the crocodile park. The children loved it.
