My parents were seeking a destination for a cool summer vacation. One thing led to another, and I found myself in Porto.
It’s not as if I completely barged in on their trip, they simply realized their vacation wouldn’t be the same without me ;-)
I’ve been wanting to visit Portugal – and Porto specifically – for quite some time now. The stories and pictures that were related to this destination stroke an urge in me – to experience this incredible town and travel to a place that resembles no other I’ve ever visited before.
“I can do anything I want during the summer vacation” (Hebrew Children songs).
Although I graduated from high school a long time ago and memories of the infamous summer vacation (the year of rethinking my life course) the one I went on two years ago, are beginning to fade, however, “somehow” it happened that this year July was full of indulgences and vacations.
I went off on a family vacation in Greece. Maybe it’s my Greek roots (Hey Thessaloniki!) or maybe it’s the fact that I was born in summer, but the sun and the blue sea are my favorite pastime.
My friends who climb mountains and those who love to hike will forgive me, but I find it hard to understand the pleasure in a challenging trip. As far as I’m concerned, people watching while sitting in the sun drinking a frosty cocktail, is a sport that I simply excel at.
(Wedding bells ringing)
We may not have a magnet on the refrigerator from Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s royal wedding… though it could have been nice to take a picture with Aunt Elizabeth, wearing ridiculous five-storey hats. But don’t worry, wedding season is here and many magnets are making their way to us, since the party doesn’t start without a show magnet (seriously now, who invented this nonsense?!)
So in order to prevent you from looking at a yellowing picture in a couple of years, wondering “what was I thinking when I wore the dress?” I decided to collect for you a number of recommendations for putting together a glamorous and on point look for the event and festivity season.
“Coming to the beach?” Two words I have never used during a work day (…unfortunately). But there are some lucky ladies that call the beach their office and the sun their desk lamp running their career to its light.
As part of the article series about career women who inspire me, this week I decided to host an impressive woman who made the sea in to a glorious career. A real champion with awards (!!!) – Attorney Vered Bouskila, former Olympic sailor and vice president of business development and project management at the Israeli Olympic Committee.
