Travel Diary: Salsa in Mallorca

I guess, all of us, at least once, have had a certain wish in our minds and thought that one day it will be true... As for me, this wish became a reason that I could not write a blog post or do basically anything else, because all my time I have been learning to dance salsa! That's right! You may ask: and what Mallorca has to do with it? Well, this year during my summer vacations my girlfriends and I headed to Mallorca, where I was invited to dance salsa while trying the Mallorcan nightlife. This was a good kick to remember how much I have always wanted to learn these kind of dances and so, two weeks ago I finally got a chance to start dancing in Aalborg. Honestly, I couldn't be happier than I am now! This music, moves and energy I get while dancing makes me so positive and happy that I think I found one more passion for life!
But now I am back to share with you my Mallorca experience. I am sure this was not the last time in southern Spain, there are so many beautiful places definitely worth visiting! We did not have much time to visit the whole island, but I would suggest to rent a car and explore the island to the fullest, as some of the guys we met did. We stayed in Palmanova, which is around 30min away from Palma. We chose this place for sandy beaches (try the frozen youghurt they have right next to the beach) and nightlife (visit the BCM Planet Dance club in Magaluf).
We also visited the capital Palma. Let me tell you, guys, I have a small obsession with palm trees (my friends always laugh that one day I will climb one:)), but I think a palm tree to me is sort of a symbol of great vacations and relax: summer, sea, warmth... So, Palma with its amount of palm trees was an amazing place for me to visit!

Hello October!

Wow it is hard to believe that October is already here! Fall, as I have mentioned before, is by far my favorite season of the year. There is definitely something magic about it. Today I want to share some fall-ish images and thoughts that make fall so inspirational and beautiful. I am a huge coffee lover, but in fall I find myself drinking a lot of warm cacao while burning candles (yes, candles are my love). I have recently come across the idea of putting cinnamon sticks around candles, see the image below, and I think I am going to try it out soon.
And of course, I couldn't resist to show the cookies I found on Pinterest which have the shape of autumn leaves. So good would that be to drink with a cacao..

I don't know how about you, guys, but even though I try to live a healthier lifestyle and work out, I cannot stop eating sweets, especially if they are so delicious looking cookies or cinnamon buns... When I was coming to study and live to Denmark, I heard about their famous delicious buns, but I had no idea that they are so(!) delicious! Whenever in Denmark - a must try for you!
Having eaten so much fall-ish sweets, as I like calling it, I really love fall for one more thing... Trees with apples and apple picking. I always remember my sister and I picking apples and spending time with the family while baking an apple pie afterwards. Having said that I am pretty sure I am gonna bake one this weekend! Is it only me so fascinated with fall or do you also find fall so beautiful? I am curious, please, let me know!
