My Favorite Spot to Get Some Sun: Tavira Island (Part One)

2

An island located in the Algarve region, it may not be paradise but it is close enough.

Tavira Island is located in Algarve, Portugal and it’s almost heaven on earth. It is a relatively small island where you can have lots of sun and fun. You can only access the island by boat, this means no cars, no traffic, and no confusion, Tavira also means no concrete, no tarmac and no skyscrapers, the only things that you can count are excellent weather, perfect warm sea, and clean white sands.

There are some houses – just a few, and you can rent them but it is very hard. They are very expensive and very hard to book. The best thing to do is to grab your tent and camp in its fabulous camping sites, just be sure that you book it with some months of anticipation, in the summer it is usually packed.

This island has great restaurants where you can eat delicious regional food and good wine or fast food, it also has many bars where you can party or relax. It’s up to you to choose what you want to do. Don’t like parties? No sweat, this island isn’t just for party people, you can also rest and spend some quiet vacations with your children and/or family, all the parties occur in the bars’ area, the rest of the island is quiet. It also has many activities for kids and adults, you will never get bored.

This island is also perfect for those who like the beach and party, especially for those who like both at the same time, the parties start in the middle of the afternoon and they only end in the morning, you can count concerts, DJ sets and lots of activities all day and all night. You can meet really interesting people or even fall in love, the island is full of young people thirsty for music, sun and fun, the hot night and permanent contact with the sand and nature will definitely open your appetite.

I guarantee that you will always have your feet in the sand all the time, the whole island is covered by beach sand. You can forget about shoes, jeans, and even your T-shirt, all you need is a pair of flip-flops, your swimming trunks/bikini, sun protector (this is a priority, the sun is REALLY hot and if you don’t protect yourself you can get seriously hurt) and party protection (you know what I mean don’t you?).

This place might not be paradise but it is damn close, I’m sure if you visit Tavira Island you will never want to leave.

    From an early age I got used to being in contact with nature—my parents' house was located very close to a pine forest. It has been my playground for as long as I can remember. It still is.

    Fresh from the Lab: Silvia Precisa

    Recently, I used my trusty Fuji Silvi. It may not be my all-time favorite camera, but I just wanted to use it because I kind of missed shooting with it. So I decided to look through my film stash to see what I could use with the Fuji Silvi. After much consideration, I ended up picking the old Agfa CT Precisa ISO 100 to get that classic blue tone. Silvia Precisa!

    My Analogue Bucket List: Faster Than a Speeding Cannonball

    The new year is still young, but it seems as if it'll be over quickly. My organizer is already filled with entries until June. 2015 will probably be worse than 2014 when it comes to having time off so I could take some analogue shots. Anyway, there are some photography-related things that I really want to get done. It is probably best to set some goals if I only have very limited time.

    Bridge Hopping: Escaping Lisbon to Costa da Caparica Beach

    Thirty-five degrees. Summer. Lisbon. Seven hills. Worst combination ever! What better to do than to escape the horrible heat of a tropical summer day in Lisbon with its too many hills to a fabulous beach that is just one bridge away? It's enough to just cross the stunning 25th of April Bridge to arrive in an exotic paradise, with great waves and even better people.

    The European Dream - Selfies from Oranienplatz: Exhibition in Berlin

    In more ways than one, Lomography is an art form as much as it is an effective tool to communicate. This is proven in the politically-driven exhibition “Selfies from Oranienplatz," of which the opening event will be taking place on the 16th of October as part of the European Month of Photography in Berlin.

    The World According to Herr Willie: Olympiastadion Berlin

    The 2015 UEFA Champions League Final will be held at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin on June 6. It is a place full of history and is also the only football stadium with a blue track course. Some say it is the most beautiful stadium in the world, and I totally agree with them. But then agai,n I might be biased because it is the home court of my favorite team, Hertha BSC Berlin—my blue-white bloodline.

    When the Soul Speaks Through Images: an Interview with Suji Park

    When a truly fascinating photograph hits you, it’s powerful enough to transport you to the story that is being told in that image. Such is what happens when one sees Suji Park's work for the first time. It’s as if you can actually hear and feel the details of each snapshot — the warmth of a late afternoon sun, the complex silence of nature or a dry and nostalgic solitude.
