What do you get after an excessive four-day festival where you also happen to perform with the best people – other than massive exhaustion? A warm, fuzzy feeling of love, friendship and accomplishment.

Also, crappy pictures of your lovely friends ♥

Can’t wait for next year’s Milhões de Festa :(

And we were in Isla Cristina, at a child-free hotel.
I’ve never been to one of these before but it’s amazing. As quiet and peaceful as a real vacation should be; 95% of the guests were german couples, most of them were elderly or retired, two or three lesbian couples, all good.
The hotel even had a sushi chef every other day (I kinda squealed a little when I first spotted him). We also went to a chiringuito twice to enjoy some delicious local noms. So delicious I could weep a little while I’m typing about them.
Basically, it was a joyful week spent eating, sleeping, reading, beaching, swimming pooling, and the occasional interneting.

Have some pix:

Here’s a couple of unique beach bods:

So, following this article on POSI+TIVE and this one after the 2011 edition of Milhões de Festa, here comes this little bundle of love for the festival, published in CHASED).

Once again, I am confessing my undying love for the festival, and trying to spread some of that love around :’)

Here are the pictures that didn’t make the cut, but are still fun to look at ♥

Throes + The Shine, chillin’ during an intensive workout/concert

Glockenwise + Barcelos street market

ALTO! playing at the pool / Joca vaguely reminds me of a backwards chubby bubbles girl here

Blues Pills, lovely

So there was a stage invasion during Throes + The Shine

Now let’s all weep ’cause it will only happen again next July.

I guess some summer festivals become more of a ritual than anything else.

Last year, Milhões took the #1 spot in my heart on this summer rank, but Paredes de Coura has its special place too. Not necessarily the festival itself, but the whole “sleeping in the castle + swimming pool + dancing” combo is a pretty sweet one.

So, here are some pictures from the last rituals:

This one is called “deer with a broken neck”. Inspired in Louis CK, Ponte da Barca 2011
