allahu akbar (?)

wow, it’s been our first day of ramadan and it was really hard. I decided to join my bf, because it’s just not nice to eat and drink when he cannot. but did you know that it’s also forbidden to use perfume? well, so we will be hungry stinkers for one month ;) the hardest part is that I’m not allowed to touch my bf during daylight – no kisses, no hugs, nothing. well…

they say, it doesn’t make any sense to do ramadan without praying – it’s like a donkey who stands in the sun all day long. but do religious traditions make a sense at all? I say, if you believe in them, yes. I like rituals and traditions, although they are not mine. I like eating apples and honey at rosh hashana and believe in a good new year, although I’m not jewish (yet). and I have to lose some weight anyway, so why don’t do ramadan?

we’re in! let’s see for how long…

couchsurfing again – ole ole!

lisbon – what a city! but I didn’t stay in the city center for my almost 24-hour stopover, I managed to find a wonderful couchsurfergirl who picked me up at the train station with her amazing van and brought me to a huge farm where she and her boyfriend live at the time. they are a “bilateral” couple too, so it was really nice to get to know them.

at night another couchsurfer joined us – check out his page! he is on tour through europe for the america cancer society at the moment with his enduro motorbike and he’s just WOW! I wish I could have gotten to know him better… so my first days on the road and I feel the pain of saying goodbye again. that’s what I really don’t like about traveling – I might never get used to it.

the good thing was, that I catched my host at the right time. she needed a positive experience, because she wasn’t sure anymore about couchsurfing. some of her surfers haven’t been nice and on top a few days ago, a girl has been raped in lisbon by her host!!! WTF??? I always knew this could happen, but when it really does, you feel so sad and angry! f*** you! f*** you!!! you destroy our beautiful community!!!

all the best to all of my couchsurfing friends out there! have fun and take care…

kickoff! :)

wherever I go, israel is near… on my way to morocco I had a stopover in lisbon. on the plane, I got the place at the window, although I don’t really like it, you know – you do have to bother people when you want to go to the toilet, so after having seen many awesome skies and clouds in the past, I prefer the aisle seat ;)

whatever – next to me sat an older couple and somehow we started chatting. they’ve been born in israel, but left the country 23 years ago for europe. it’s been so cool to talk to them and I’ve been feeling amazingly comfortable, which is really good when you start a big trip :)

the woman has been afraid when we landed, because the plane shaked a bit. I told her “hakol hije beseder” and she was so happy I talked to her in hebrew, it was really funny.

all the best to my new israeli acquaintances and I hope my trip will go on with such nice happenings like this one.

couchsurfing in lisbon will follow :)

lechaim!

once upon a time…

…a surfergirl started packing! yeah!!! I waited so long for this moment :) well, I know – I start early, but I will have to do a lot of packing and unpacking until I’m really done. it’s not so easy to pack for three months, I never did that before. but it’s such a lot of fun! and anticipation is growing immensely :)))

couchsurfing lissabon

my flight to marrakech is form july 4th to 5th, because it’s a cheap one and you know… I have to stay almost 24 hours in lisboa and I don’t want to spend the time at the airport. so I thought I’d couchsurf again and I’m really looking forward to meeting my hosts. soon I’m on the road again!!! :)))

can’t wait

twelve more days, four more exams at university and I’m back in my bf’s arms inshallah. I miss his smile, I miss talking to him, I miss his touch, I miss staring at him while he’s sleeping, I miss paddling out to the line-up with him, I miss his perfume, I miss his happiness, his sadness, his lostness in thoughts, his laugh and his love… even filming him while he’s out there surfing and I’m just sitting there like stupid surferboy-girlfriends do ;)

AND I MISS THE AMAZING BREAKFAST HE PREPARES FOR ME EVERY SINGLE MORNING!

airline troubles

yesterday I received a mail from seat24 that etihad airways didn’t accept our request to take our surfboards on the flight from kuala lumpur to denpasar and back. AND… hold on! today I got a mail from air asia that they will suspend their flights from denpasar (bali/indonesia) to clark (philippines) from june 15th on. if there are still seats available, we can MAYBE fly with another airline and they will book it for us or money back. fair enough!

surfer-airline-troubles

but what to do now really? we can only stay 30 days in bali, no visa extension possible for my bf due to his place of birth. AND WITHOUT OUR BOARDS it makes no sense at all to fly anyway, because we don’t have the money to buy new ones in bali nor do we want to rent and pay for shitty boards when we got amazing (custom) ones back home! AAARGH!!!

so I did it! just now I booked our flights from morocco to bali, from bali to the philippines, from the philis back to bali and from bali back to morocco. we will stay for 8 weeks from july till september!

if you know any cheap and nice places we could stay, it would be very cool if you could leave us a comment – thank you surferfriends all over the world! hope you also planned your next surftrip already :)
