Galicia

Galicia

If Galicia doesn’t sound spanish to you, well done! It got his name from Celtics, who lived in this area a while ago. I’ve spent a couple of weeks here but, as it has such a variety of gorgeous places to visit and stories to get to know, I could only scratch the surface. Coming to Galicia gave me space to breath, get away from the crowds and the feeling of adventure, while exploring the coast line.

For more general information about surfing and living in a car in Spain head over to the Introduction Page: The Atlantic Coast.

Praia Das Catedrais

Not as hyped as the 12 Apostels in Australia, but similar stunning to see. Go there at low tide to discover the craziness of what earth has formed over centuries in its full beauty.

PraIa de Ponzos

We had a double rainbow, so how could I not recommend it. Everything about this place stunned me, the rough sea, the surrounding nature and the loving van people hanging out when I was there.

Basilica San MArtino

Known to be the oldest Basilica in Spain, it has a small museum to explain its history, even though the stones of the building already speak their own language.

Valdoviño

Comparing the quality of surf with anything east it should be 10x more crowded. Relaxed atmosphere in the beach parking. Sadly it was not the best weather, so I can’t trump with a picture of the beach.

Ferrol

Ferrol is nice, but it is big enough to look very similar to most cities on the coast. But make sure to roam through the Castelo St. Felipe from the 16. century. It is one of my personal favourites, because you can walk through it freely, explore every nook and see amazing views of the surrounding area.

ACoruna

A Coruña

When I was on this trip for the first time, it was our slow-paced goal to make it to A Coruña. In the end I can say it was nice to walk through this town, explore the sights, but it was very touristy and didn’t give me that feeling of freedom, that I got in the rest of Galicia.

Floor & Insulation

Today I would love to publish a post about surfing and community, but I’m still in the progress of manifesting what I’m dreaming of: Living in my van full time, working online and surfing everyday, preferably in Portugal.

So far, the floor and the insulation are installed and the video is ‘fresh out of the press’. Please enjoy!

Surfskating in Friedrichshain, Berlin

But, as a Berliner, I decided to check out some more place in Friedrichshain, the suburb I used to go to school to, with my Surfskate and shoot an homage to the ‘Plattenbauromantik’, ‘Zuckerbauten’ and of course it can’t be missed: the ‘Tram’.
