Finally, we went to visit my awesome friends and their baby. They live in the Netherlands, on the northern island of Texel which is a bit more than a 4 hour drive and includes a quality ferry ride. 🙂 It is a summertime paradise and still charming this close to wintertime. This is the teaser, more video content to come!
So, some of you may wonder why the hell is a travel vlog/blog called life with the cats. Well, this is not really a travel vlog. It’s a personal vlog for a couple who happens and aims to travel a lot. When we don’t we are at home with our 3, very spoiled cats and when we do travel, we still naturally attract…well..animals. Mainly felines. There is no real explanation for this, but we function like a cat magnet.
Here is a photo from our hotel room mid-week:
Today’s video is a short one because today we have other adventures to document! Will report on that, too. Until than, here are some of the cuties of Lanza.
This is the video of our flight home from Arrecife. Taking off at sunset and visiting the cockpit. The music is by our good friend, Soliquid, I’ve put a link for download in the video description. I think this is the longest video I have ever edited. No going to lie, it took me 3 hours and it is really far from perfect, but I think this is a huge milestone in my video life.
For day 5 we took the boat and went across to see Fuerteventura. It was great, although we didn’t really leave Corralejo and we figured that this may not be the prettiest beach on the island. Nevertheless, it was still a great day, an amazing beach with white sand and lovely turquoise water. See it for yourself.
This is the third day of the Our Life Challenge. This is the third ”vlog” entry. This is the gist of the 4th day we spent in Lanzarote. I am now revisiting the excuse I made for not having created a video for day 2, as day 4 wasn’t that hugely exciting either. I think this will be the hardest thing for me moving forward with the Our Life Challenge, accepting that our life is not that much exciting all the time. We’re average and normal. I think…
So this is day 4. Excuse our not so perfect beach bodies and the Husband’s haircut.
This is a story I have to tell: so we went to this hairdressing place they recommended at reception. There was this really weird looking guy (half long-half short hair, very skinny jeans, platform sandals) and a 30 ish lady. Luck guided Csabi (husband) to this guy and he was worried first, but I told him to take his appearance as a sign of his creativity. We can call this creativity, or misinterpreted art? Well, yes, Csabi ended up with the worst haircut in the history of mankind. Not going back there again.
So yeah, enjoy the show 🙂
So, I know my numbering seems a bit all over the place, but nothing, and I mean nothing happened on day 2. Sooo I decided to skip it entirely and use a footage that is slightly more interesting. On day 3, thanks to my husband’s geniusness we went on a boat cruise. But this wasn’t just any boat cruise, it was the Chill Out Cruise. How is this different from other cruises? First of all, there is really a limited amount of people allowed on board, so if you are with a few of your friends it’s pretty much a private boat. Second, there is no real agenda: you sail off, then stop and you can do whatever while they grill your lunch. Booze is unlimited. Oh and they provide all the equipment, like, for snorkeling or surfing. It’s pretty much just a day out on a boat. We loved it. Here’s how much. Oh if you have the option to watch it in HD, do that. 😉
*disclaimer: I did not receive compensation for promoting this cruise, nor was I asked to do this video in any way. We just really liked it.
So I started with a lie. 2 lies. This is not yet a VLOG entry. And this is not day one. Officially. Because we arrived a day earlier. I’ll call that day zero.
Anyways. We went to Lanzarote for our official annual holiday. Unfortunately without the cats. But! We had our lovely friends (pictured on the back on this very tasteful photograph)
taking care of them in our house for 11 days. Or 10? Not sure. ANYWAYS, here is a video from day 1 of our holiday and this is the the first post of the 100 day ‘Our life’ challenge.
