Link para o post antigo do álbum digital.

Once again many thanks to  Saal Digital for an awesome photo booklet - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

How I miss having holiday photo albums, I haven't done one since film cameras. I recently traveled to São Miguel Island in the Azores and nothing better to remember that trip than this awesome photo booklet. I REALLY recommend that you try Saal Digital, the price-quality is very good and I am extremely pleased with the final result.

North Berwick

Beach & tidal pools
I love discovering life in tidal pools, i've done it ever since I was little. It's the vibrant colours of seaweed, the smell of sea breeze and excitement of what i'll find hiding underneath rocks, sand and anemones: cheeky hermit crabs, baby shrimp and fish. I'm a shell and sand collector and sometimes I keep other ocean treasures, nowadays I mostly just do it digitally.
Bass Rock
I booked the Sula II Boat Trip to Bass Rock (15£) online (probably best so that you guarantee a spot). It's a beautiful sail boat and the owners are so nice they even lent me a pair of binoculars! The boat ride was shaky because it was a windy day and the waves were picking up. I saw a few Puffins, OH MY GOD the cutest birds I have ever seen with their little feet spread open, but also Guillemots, Cormorants and Shags. Closer to the Bass Rock it gets very load with bird calls and a very strong smell of guano and of course Gannets, Gannets everywhere! this is what makes it look like a white iceberg from a far. It's Britain’s largest single island colony of the North Atlantic Gannet which returns every year to breed and lay a single egg.
The Scottish Seabird Center is educational, lots of fun and you help support conservation by visiting. There are activities like drawing seabirds, interactive exhibitions where you can spot nesting birds on the Bass Rock from telescopes and live cameras that you control yourself, documentaries and short movies. 
Happy kid

Oh the Places You'll Go!

Last year I had an Erasmus experience, and although it wasn't my first time leaving "home" it was my first time living out of my home country. It was extremely exciting but I also remember feeling a little bit anxious. I have always been fairly independent, thank you parents for not being overprotective 🙏. Truth be said, kids are better off when they are left to fend for themselves, through first hand experience they will learn how to face challenges and solve them in their own way.

Take it easy, give yourself time to explore these new and foreign lands. Locate the closest supermarket, walking route or public transportation to your study/workplace. Figure out all the bureaucracies you need to take care of. At first you may feel lost, alone and even homesick, both mentally and physically (why intestines..?!) this is completely natural, you are adjusting to a new life and you don't know anyone yet.
Ill Never Grow Up

Make yourself get out of your comfort zone shell and do things. Time flies so don't just sit around and wait for life to happen, so lame but so true. It doesn't matter if it's a crazy night out, volunteer groups or a knitting club, as long as you are doing what makes you happy and meet new people along the way. If they share your interests and hobbies it's a plus. Sometimes we forget the basics of human interactions: a big smile and a "hello!" should start it off. While you're off discovering the world why not start a blog or journal to track these new adventures? and remember to explore not just as a tourist but as a local, there is a big difference. Home will always be home but if you open your heart and mind to it you will find that home can be anywhere in the world and it is so worth it!
