About Me

This post is also available in: Nederlands (Dutch) Português (Portuguese (Portugal))

Hi. My name is Johanna de Roos. Welcome to my blog about the good life, the “Dolce Vita” in the south of Europe.

I was born in Holland but on my 30th birthday I moved to Portugal and looking back I can see it was probably the best thing I have ever done on my life! I absolutely love this country as well as other southern mediterranian countries like Italy and Spain. With this blog I am going share stories of life here, recipies, tips about food, drinks and life style. I will take you travelling in the south of Europe and I hope that you will enjoy all of this as much as I do. I would love to think you may decide to visit some of the places I am going to share with you – or maybe all of them! On occasions you might find we jump to Brazil, this country is another of my lifetime favorites!

What started as a hobby…

This blog originated from something that started as a hobby, Photography. I love photographing food, landscapes and cities. I love to share these photos and all the tips I have learnt along the way and so – Here I am!

My mission………..

my mission is to get you excited about everything the South of Europe has to offer and, believe me, this beautiful part of the world has a lot to offer. Most of the blog will be about Portugal but I will take you on trips to other countries too. I want you to experiment with my delicous recipies and you would make me very happy if you decide to try and use my tips about travelling and life style.

Let´s get started !    –   Vamos começar !
