Enchanting Monsanto in Portugal

This authentic Portuguese village built between gigantic boulders is located southeast of Serra da Estrela. It is an ancient fortified village perched on the side of a mountain. With houses squeezed between gigantic boulders, it’s a really stunning and extraordinary sight!

'In your Arms' by Kina Grannis

I absolutely love this 'jellybean animation’ video! ‘'In your Arms' directed by the inventive Greg Jardin gained a lot of buzz on You Tube.

Taking his inspiration from jellybean paintings, he teamed up with Kina Grannis to film what they called the “Crazy Secret Project”. The video took 1,357 hours to film over 22 months with 30 people, 2 ladders, 1 still camera and 288,000 jelly beans. The result, an amazing stop motion video that after only 2 days, has amassed over 500 000 views. 

What really makes the video special is that everything you see was shot on camera, which means that there was no green screen. Pretty impressive!

Phuket Island has everything that we need for a perfect relaxing vacation and a view of magical Thailand.
You can enjoy the various beaches with white sand and the cool water perfect for scuba diving. The island also offers you elephant trekking, the possibility to visit a Butterfly Garden and the experience of kayaking in the Mangroves. Beautiful!
