Just what we needed
What to do with 7 girlfriends looking for a holiday with sun, quality-time and yoga, complemented with some action and nice food? Encouraged by the beautiful pictures on the website, we booked our trip to the Chicks on Waves in Portugal. 

The location itself is stunning: tastefully furnished with low-key corners where you can enjoy some reading and with a fantastic sea-view. We had a triple room with access to the terrace and a nice bathroom. The breakfast, served on the terrace, offered a large choice of healthy options, with eggs of our choice prepared and adapted to gluten intolerance for some of us. Perfect to start our day. In the evening, cook Anina made us soup and some healthy dishes…learned some new things there but not the same when I tried it at home! (the polenta-pizza with mascarpone and courgette) 

Our daily schedule depended on the wind and tide but surfing started mostly in the morning. Our sympathetic surf teacher had the incredible patience to keep motivating us, as surfers, and teach us the pleasure of surfing. What a feeling when you finally get on that board and take your first wave !! We have discovered the most beautiful beaches there. 

I want to conclude that al boxes were ticked for us. For me it is not the question ‘if’ I go back some time, the question is ‘when’. 
Thank you ladies for the warm welcome and for the wonderful surfing experience!
