OUR TRAVEL BLOG

My wife Susan and I, try to live the beach life and travel as much as we can. We love the sunshine, the beach, nature, being active, and just having these amazing, unique experiences (big or small). This travel blog appeals to travelers, 25-55, who are active but at the same time, look for relaxation and comfort. We want to inspire you to truly explore the places you visit and spend time taking in the culture and surroundings.

There is always a place where it is summer and we want to call it home. We have lived in different countries, such as Curaçao, the British Virgin Islands, and now settling down in Portugal in the Algarve.

Sunny regards, Sebastiaan Opschoor

It might be the architecture, or the people, the international allure, the European-like vibes, but most likely a combination/ culmination of all of these. Read more
