Another reason of course is my promise to keep on escaping the winter climate as much as I possibly can.
Plus, I will be continuing my online studies through university this fall, and thanks to my student loan, I can live like a king in Asia in comparison to Europe. You simply get more for your buck over there and it’s more worth it.
But I must say I’m really looking forward to head back, because life was quite an adventure over there in comparison to how I personally feel about my life in Europe at this moment.
The only thing I will do differently this time around, is to stick to a more balanced life, being more grounded.
I don’t want to let go of my creative bubble, my productivity and healthy routine that I have going strong for me right now. It’s such a big part of me, so I hope to incorporate it more in the “Travel-Me” which I didn’t manage so well with last time.
So Fingers crossed!
If anyone of my readers are based in Asia or will be travelling there during Fall season, give me a shout
I just came back and my trip has been absolutely great. So amazing literally speaking!
Normally I go there with friends for party trips, but this time around I went with a guy that I’m seeing. God we had so much fun! We stayed in a beautiful villa just by the sea, rented my favourite car (a black Jeep Wrangler) and had the most intense days, filled with romance and rock’n’roll. Just the way I like it!
We managed to squeeze in DC10, an entire day at Blue Marlin, Beach House, some island sightseeing, amazing dinners and lots more.
My absolute favourite night was when we went to Heart Ibiza. They opened only a few days ago and it’s a restaurant by the famous Adriá brothers (Ferran & Albert Adriá) who are doing a concept together with Cirque de soleil. We were really lucky getting a table because we had such a good time and spent the entire night there.
I believe it was 5 in the morning, and the restaurant had switch on it’s lights, us being the last customers to leave, haha. But it was one of those evenings when you didn’t want the night to end, which worked out fine since the restaurant turned in to a club after 1 am :). Probably this was the longest dinner of my life, as I just couldn’t stop eating all the interesting foods on the meny!
Anyway, this is literally a new “it”-place in Ibiza that is so worth checking out because it’s such a culineray experience you will never forget. Lio, Cipriani etc feels super boring all of a sudden comparing to this place #justatip
Ibiza is a typical “group holiday” destination. You will enjoy it most if you go as a group, either with your girlfriends or mixed. Most common is to rent a villa and share in between everyone, for that reason there are not many great luxury hotels on the island as people reside in either villas or on yachts.
If you can’t get a group together then simply going with a friend or two is fine too.
Avoid San Antonio (where all the trashy drunk brits are) and explore pretty much the entire island – if you get a chance. Otherwise most people hang out in Ibiza town, in Marina Botafoc, Talamanca, Playa D’en Bossa & the entire south part of Ibiza (Es Cubelles, Sant Josep, Ses Salines etc).
Is Ibiza expensive?
Yes, but depends what you compare with.
To give you some examples, here are some approx. prices:
Basic 2 star hotel room: From €50/night and up (can be even higher during peak season)
Lunch at Chiringuito/Beach house: Main courses range between €10-35
Dinner at Lio/Cipriani: Minimum spend of €150 per person
Large sun bed (max 4 people) at Blue Marlin for the day: €100 for the bed plus €300 minimum spend
