Uns dias tranquilos passados num dos meus sítios de eleição. A quinta de família na Serra da Estrela tornou-se, há já alguns anos, no nosso refúgio.

Acordar de manhã com o som dos pássaros e o cheiro das árvores, tomar o pequeno almoço ao ar livre com uma vista incrível sobre Seia, passar o dia na piscina envolvida por castanheiros e nogueiras, fazer exercício ao ar livre e respirar o ar mais puro de que tenho memória. Churrasco ao fim da tarde acompanhado por um bom vinho e acabar o dia aquecida pela lareira numa casinha de pedra e madeira que mais parece saída de um filme (…de terror quando, de noite, perdida no meio da floresta, se ouvem os incessantes estalidos da madeira).


A few days spent in one of my favorite places. The family house in Serra da Estrela has been our special place for the past few years.

Waking up with the sound of the birds, having breakfast outside with the most magnificent view, spending the day by the pool completely surrounded by fruit trees, workout outside inhaling the cleanest air I can remember. Sunset means barbecue and good wine and to finish the day, family games heated by the fireplace.

Mais um dia perfeito na cidade de sonho! Continuando a dedicar algum tempo a contrariar velhos hábitos, chegámos à Ribeira, atravessámos a ponte D. Luís a pé e lanchámos do lado de Gaia, com esta vista incrível do Porto.


Still enjoying our amazing city! Ribeira • D. Luís bridge • Ribeira de Gaia

Na correria do dia-a-dia, raramente há tempo para desfrutar dos privilégios de viver numa zona excepcionalmente agradável para umas boas caminhadas.

Numa fase dedicada a contrariar velhos hábitos, nas últimas semanas tenho feito um esforço para aproveitar estes pequenos (grandes) prazeres.


Lately, I’ve been trying o lose old habits and take advantage of living in the perfect place to enjoy small (big) pleasures like a good walk around the neighborhood.

new york city – the end!

IMG_0801FullSizeRender(2)

O último dia foi dedicado a fazer as malas e a comprar  os presentes dos miúdos (à última da hora e já sob reclamações intensas e pré-pânico do mais novo). Neste caso, (e quase exclusivamente neste 🙂 ) seria bem mais fácil se fossem meninas, mas nada que uma boa loja de desporto não resolva.

A chegada à melhor cidade do mundo!

P.S. – OBRIGADA BENNY! ❤


The last day was dedicated to:

  1. Packing (certainly a difficult task after one week in New York).
  2. Buying the kids’ gifts (even harder). In this case, it would certainly make it easier if they were girls. 🙂

Almost landing! Happy to be back to the best city of the world!

P.S. – THANK YOU BENNY! ❤

“Fast forward: painting from the 1980’s” no oitavo andar do Whitney Museum, onde se pode apreciar trabalhos de artistas como David Salle, Louisa Chase, Julian Schnabel, entre muitos outros.

Lanche no Chelsea Market, seguido de mais umas comprinhas! 🙂

Jantar no Cowgirl – corndogs e lychee margaritas!


“Fast forward: painting from the 1980’s” at the 8th floor of the Whitney Museum, where it’s possible to see the work of artists like David Salle, Louisa Chase, Julian Schnabel, among many others.

A chocolate crepe at the Chelsea Market, followed by some more shopping! 🙂

For dinner, corndogs and lychee margaritas at the Cowgirl.

A chegar ao fim, mais um dia intenso com direito a dois posts.

Último almoço com a Christiane e o Eddie antes de serem pais. Entretanto, o Karl e o Kai já nasceram e são liiindos!

Finalmente aqueceu e os casacões ficaram em casa. Nada melhor que um passeio pelo High Line (confesso que também foi uma estreia), seguido de uma visita ao Whitney Museum. Aqui, apenas estavam abertos ao público os dois últimos andares, pois nos restantes preparava-se a Bienal que, entretanto, já pode ser visitada se andarem por esses lados. 🙂

Mostro-vos uma pequena parte do 7º andar, sob o título “Human Interest: Portraits from Whitney’s Collection”. Acima, podemos ver trabalhos de artistas como Georgia O’Keeffe, JoAnn Verburg, Jamel Shabazz, Leidy Churchman, Susan Hall, Stephen Greene, Grace Hartigan, entre outros.

To be continued…


Another intense day and again… two posts.

Last chance to spend some time with Eddie and Christiane before the twins were born. (Karl and Kai are super sweet!)

Finally it got warmer and we could leave the big coats at home. It was the perfect day for a stroll around the High Line for the first time. Afterwards, art time at the Whitney Museum. We could only visit two floors, as the remaining were being prepared for the Whitney Biennial 2017.

Above you can see the work of artists like Georgia O’Keeffe, JoAnn Verburg, Jamel Shabazz, Leidy Churchman, Susan Hall, Stephen Greene and Grace Hartigan, which were exhibited on the 7th floor, under the theme of “Human Interest: Portraits from Whitney’s Collection”.

O dia começou com um passeio a pé por Brooklyn, seguido de almoço no maravihoso Five Leaves. Continuando até Williamsburg, algum shopping (para não perder o ritmo 🙂 ), uma pausa para café no Toby’s Estate e mais uma “facada” na dieta.

Para terminar, mais uma estreia. Uma sessão de cinema no Nitehawk Cinema. Entre cada duas cadeiras, uma mesa, petiscos e bebidas. Esqueçam as pipocas! O filme? “Paterson”. Acho que a minha irmã assustou a plateia uma ou duas vezes com as suas gargalhadas contagiantes! 🙂

A caminho de casa, uma foto no Martha’s Country Bakery! Será um sinal? Ahahah!


Starting the day with a stroll around Brooklyn, followed by a delicious lunch at Five Leaves. Some more shopping in Williamsburg (to keep up the pace 🙂 ) and a coffee at Toby’s Estate.

Nitehawk Cinema, a great experience – movies and good food. The perfect match! Much better than popcorn! “Paterson” – pretty good. (Especially my sister’s super loud laughter! 🙂 )

On our way home – my new business: Martha’s Country Bakery! Ahahah!
