Back to June 2013: after an amazing time in Barcelona (part 1 and part 2)with great friends, both old and new, we moved on to IBIZA – our fave Spanish island of all time. Reunited with our favorite Ibizan friends and managed to get some hardcore partying done as well ;)19 June 2013: Got to Ibiza after consecutive nights of hardcore partying in Barcelona. Reunited with Leo at Lio Ibiza :) Leo’s cute Spanish note to the Pacha VIP people to let his buenos amigos (“good friends”) in awww! Happy best friends on our favorite Spanish island of all time. Went to Pacha Ibiza after this but had an early night since we were all pretty exhausted from the hardcore partying in Barcelona before haha. Ibiza x Zouk! Lunch at Casa Thai with Leo. Took a walk around San Antonio – this place is so touristy and filled with British club promoters etc and I’m glad we got to experience the real Ibiza with our local friends instead. David Guetta at Pacha! Marc and Juan at Pacha VIP :) My dear Isabel! Next night: amazing set by Fritz Kalkbrenner at Pacha. Was soaring… and when he played Sky and Sand at the end I swear I couldn’t stop smiling. Day after we went for lunch with Leo at Playa d’en Bossa and had some great fresh grilled fish and seafood. The men having a serious conversation… Singing along to the radio in Leo’s car :) Fabio gave us canvas, his brushes & paint to work our magic with and this is what we 3 largely talentless kids came up with. Hung it over Leo’s fireplace and I hope it’s still hanging proudly there now haha. The shirts we stole from Leo, this is almost an Ibiza ritual now, we leave every time with one of Leo’s shirts each. Coffee at Canadian Jesus. Leeza terrorizing Ashwinky… Went to the beach with Leo where he went trigger-happy on us and captured lots of happy albeit awkward shots of us. Then left for Talamanca beach. Cava con fruits! My favorite beach drink ever :) So nice! God. Haha this is us after trekking 1 hour in the cold cold heart of the Ibiza mountains to see the San Joan festival (a Catalan festival where they celebrate with bonfires and large-scale festivities). The middle fingers are for our friend Sergi, a fiercely Catalan friend who told us we had to see San Joan lol. Thank god we were stuck in the middle of nowhere with 3 other Italian lost souls who could speak Spanish and the bus drivers found us and fetched us back to Eivissa town. VAGABUNDOS! Next night: Lio for a few cocktails and managed to catch the full show (which was AMAZING) and then Pacha for Hard Rock Sofa. The familiar walk from Lio to Pacha :) Happy Juan and Leo: )Ashwinky fooling around the VIP door while Isabel poses with me Happy Ibiza familia! Yay so proud of Zouk! 6am: Ashwinky exhausted by his 2 hyper friends who may or may not have been still soaaaaaring… Happy hyper us. After this photo was taken Ash promptly went to bed on a random airport bench while we chatted non-stop about Ibiza and our friends and experiences.. Guess we WERE still soaring. Mallorca up next! :) Scuffed sneakers, tanned legs, chipped nails – the best way to travel.
What a great time in Ibiza, I miss this place so much. Truly my happy place. Mallorca was so gorgeous as well, pictures coming up soon. In the meantime, just back from Bali so have to get back to doing work and being focused on the Bar. x
