This week, I was literally whisked away on a whirlwind romance – with a twist. The whisking away was thanks to Teva, who romanced me with sunshine, yoga and surfing in beautiful Sagres, Portugal.
Sagres is the most south-westerly point in the whole of Europe and up to the 1600s it was actually considered to be the end of the world! This was before anyone had discovered America and the ocean just stretched for miles into a blue abyss.
Standing on the cliff’s edge at our hotel, Pousada de Sagres, I could totally imagine what it felt like back then; staring into the unknown on the wild, wind swept cliffs on this rugged corner of Portugal.
Teva hosted a delicious lunch of barbecued Piri Piri chicken, gigantic sardines and various dips and salads at our hotel which we ate from a low table made of wooden crates, sitting on cushions while being serenaded by one of the hot, tanned Teva boys playing acoustic covers on his guitar…. I mean, what a welcome!
As Sagres is famous for its beautiful cliffs, we drove up to the most incredible viewpoint before heading down to the beach for yoga and surfing.
If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll know i’m absolutely obsessed with California and the cali lifestyle, so I was really excited to see that Sagres is basically the Portuguese equivalent of so-cal, with its cool surf shacks, big waves and stunning coast line.
After an amazing afternoon playing on the beach, we slid our Tevas on and headed back to the hotel for a quick change. As we were going to a party, I’d habitually packed a pair of heels to wear with my new Missguided dress, but quickly realised that heels would make dancing on the beach extremely difficult!
So I slid my new Tevas on instead, which gave my outfit a cooler, hippie vibe that I absolutely loved and meant i’d be comfortable all night too…Score!
The party was at the cutest little beach cabana bar, complete with Teva hippie vans, surfboards, cushions and a digital campfire… so 2016! We drank sangria, ate fresh barbecued fish and danced the night away under the stars.
I never realised how much this brand is all about loving the outdoors, having fun and being carefree. Because nothing can make you feel more carefree than a comfortable, secure foot when you’re adventuring, partying or exploring new places!
Sadly, the next day it was time to head home from my whirlwind romance, where I’d fallen head over heels in love with the beach vibes of Sagres and the amazing Teva lifestyle.
Come and join the adventure…
