Beautiful Beaches: Langre, Spain

Langre is a (I’m sorry) one horse town in the middle of northern Spain, between Gijon and Bilbao, next to Santander. Green meadows and in the distance you can see the Picos de l’europa with their maybe snow-covered peaks. Langre has an extremely beautiful bay with great waves – in it’s neighborhood there’s nothing except Boris’ Liquid Surfcamp a few farms – the right place to chill and switch off. The best thing is: Most of the time you have the bay just for yourself.

The bay is also good for SUP. My friends offer SUP-classes regularly: https://www.facebook.com/NordshoreSurfschuleHamburg

What Your Surfboard Says About You

A surfboard is the most important component of any surfer’s arsenal. Surfboards are conduits that splash brushstrokes on saltwater canvases. They are extensions of our souls. They are muses and swords, trophies and brothers. Like it or not, the board you ride says a lot about you.

Fresh Air and Spring Cleaning

Almost on time for the beginning of spring, I was thinking, I can bring some fresh air in my blog and clean up a little – not so easy now with more than 70 posts. Perhaps you’ve noticed, if not, no worries. I changed the navigation so for you (and me also) it will be a little easier to find the topics you are looking for.

First I thought that “Wavehuntress week” and the “Happy Weekend Quotes” need their own sub-category, because they are currently more likely everywhere and nowhere. So in future you can find both in my “Impact Zone” easy to find and have everything at a glance.

Impact Zone – yes, but why?

The Impact Zone is the area in the spot where the waves break, there where it’s all comes together. I liked the name better than “Stuff” or “Other” or “Misceallous” and it fits: The “Impact Zone” is where everything happens. So I not only give weekly link tips and share wonderful words and quotes – the “Pearls Of Salty Wisdoms“, here you can find now my “How to’s” – just as a collection – and personal insights into my life. I’m planning a lot and can only promise that it will determine turbulent. Therefore, the term “Impact Zone” is just right!

Traveling – now with Stories and Tips

Again, I thought to myself, that a division is not so wrong. In the “Travel Tips” you can now find all sorts of useful things which will help you to simplify your travels, such as the “Hostel Survival Guide”. But also places and “beautiful beaches” that impressed me lot.
In the “Travel stories” I’ll tell you about what so fascinating about traveling for me and what I have experienced
abroad so far.

Fit for surf – almost the same

Here you further can find basics and surfspecific workouts, that will make you fit for surfing. Moreover, I’ll sometime give a kick in the ass, I have to give myself every now and then, which you can also benefit. Just not talking about the delicious recipes and introduce you to some foods that you maybe don’t have on your daily mealplan.

surfing

I’m crazy about surfing, you have probably already noticed. Here you can find now everything has to do with it. I will continue not to talk about contests, surfers or board shapes or something like this – there’re many goog pages, but I’ll simply write about the love of my life (hence the heart;-)) and all that it’s about for me.

The rest – Contact and About

Beloved: Use the Contact button and diligently write me! Follow me on social networks, if you do not now, stay updated. Ask questions, comment, criticize me and let me know what I can do better.
If you want to know what drives me to write this blog, visit my About page. Here I write about my motivation and what the surfing so much fascinated me is that I like to stay tuned to write this blog.

I hope you like the new strcture and enjoy your time on this blog even more. Until then:

Healthy eating: Chickpea Spinach Curry

Today I have another recipe for you, that meet my three requirements on cooking. It doesn’t take long, it’s with low expenditure and a healthy, delicious dish comes out of it.

Chickpea Spinach Curry

You need:

  • 1-2 onions
  • 1 big can of chickpeas
  • 1 pack of spinach
  • Curry, salt, pepper (a little bit Maggi)
  • maybe garlicpowder, cumin
  • for the non-vegan version: 1/2 piece of feta cheese

Chop the onions and roast them gently in the pan with enough oil. Once they are translucient, add 2 tablespoons curry powder, distribute and fry briefly.
Now add the drained chickpeas, the spinach and about a liter of water. Simmer for about 10 minutes with the lid closed. Remove the lid and continue cooking until the liquid is reduced and it becomes a nice consistency. Stir from time to time, to avoid scorching.
If you prefer a non-vegan version, crumb yet ½ piece of feta cheese and mix it in.
Now season with salt and pepper. A little bit of garlic powder and cumin matches also very good.

Finally, my Grandma’s insider tip: She always says: “On Greens must a little dash of Maggi”. I like it, but I know that not everybody does. If you are not sure you try it first on a spoon.
