Portugal 2018

PORTUGAL 2018 – FAMILY HOLIDAY

I have finally finished my Portugal video!! I tried out some new effects, such as glitches and fast zooms. Instead of making this video out people I was planning on making it slightly more artistic, but unfortunately I made it once amazingly and lost it. So I had to stick with this version. I am still proud of it but upset about how bad the quality is once I have put it on Youtube.

Flower power & Pina coladas

A beautiful day for a beautiful beach

Óbidos Castle: a different day, a different beach

If you want to see it in better quality have a look on my Instagram account @emilymaythorne!! I DON NOT OWN THE RIGHTS TO THIS SONG: Louis the Child – Slow Down Love.

I hope you enjoy it anyway!

Jack and I getting out of the sea in the Golden Hour!

Cute little shops below and  surrounding Obidos Castle.

There were decorated bikes everywhere in Portugal. We came to the conclusion that they were our version on scarecrows or something, haha!

The best spaghetti carbonara I have had in a very long time!! After a day at the beach we were all desperate for Italian food (apart from my brother who just craves meat.) We found the cutest little resturent just by the beach with the nicest waitresses and the best food.

Alice and I ‘paddle boarding,’ haha! The tide was so strong this day that my Mum and Dad pulled us along on there kaiak, how lazy are we.

My brother and I enjoying the freezing cold sea. The waves were massive this day we were being completely swept away.

Our family villa. What a beautiful view!!

Another picture from Obidos Castle, the place was so beautiful and filled with colour.

BBQ time!! 

The first day at the beach, obviously holding a nice, cold mojito!

A little TB of my family holiday in Portugal. I can not wait to go away in September with my friends!! Although England is sunny, there is nothing like a holiday. Summer is the best!

Paddle boarding, kaiaking & my favourite Summer scent

Thursday 28th June

On Thursday we had a very lazy morning and then spent the whole afternoon at The Lagoon (a salt water lake), this is what our view is of when we look out over our balcony. My brother, sister, cousin and I did paddle boarding but my auntie, uncle, mum and dad did kaiaking. The wind was so so strong that Alice and I were not strong enough to move through the current. We would look back at the hut where we hired the boards and hadn’t moved anywhere, ahah! We started to get so frustrated, that dad and mum pulled us along on their kaike. We felt like royalty, haha!

In the evening, Alice and I cooked for everyone (well we cooked the bolognese and mum made the spaghetti, salad and garlic bread, haha!) This was while everybody was watching the football.

Victoria Secret – Water Blooms & Amber Romance

When my Dad is coming home from Saudi, he picks up a Victoria Secret spray for Alice, Mum and I. This time he got me a different flavour which I love!! I am also a bit obsessed with my Mums.

At the moment I am using the Amber Romance and Mum is using Water Blooms – this one smells very fresh!

 

A beautiful day for a beautiful beach

Tuesday 26th June

We travelled to a different beach that my Dad found on google maps and it was beautiful. So old, filled with lots of pretty houses and a very clear sea. My cousin Kieran, Jack and I went paddle boarding and my uncle caught the best photographs, ahha! This won’t be the last time we are going to try paddle boarding this holiday. This beach is  called Sao Marinho Do Porto.

Pictures of us paddle boarding, haha! As you can see I was not the best but practice makes perfect.

After a full day in the sun shine we went for a nice drink at a brand new restaurant just around the corner, on the sea front. We are going to head back there for dinner one evening before we go home, as the owner seemed lovely!

On our drive home we found a fruit and vegetable stand on the side of the road, so we stopped off to check it out. We picked up half of a massive watermelon and a box of strawberries!!

Playsuit – ASOS

This was an exciting second day!!
