Oh Ibiza. What have you done to me? After visiting Ibiza last year, I made a personal promise to come back again this year, so, here I am. I’ve been here on this lovely Spanish island for roughly about two weeks now. Mr Sweden and I stayed at a charming little hotel high up in the old town for a few days before sharing a villa with close friends for a week and now that they’ve all left, I extended my stay at the ultimate party hotel, Ushuaia. It’s the same place where I stayed at last year.
The first hotel we stayed at had the slowest internet so I was not able to use my laptop. I was like “ok, I can survive without the internet for a few days, it’s fine.”
Five minutes after arriving to the villa we rented, I thought my friend Jason and his partner Gustavo were kidding when they told me we didn’t have internet access in the house. I felt I was gonna die right then and there but after not opening my computer for five days, it was a clear sign from the powers that be that I should be on vacation mode and that’s exactly what I did!
So up until now (there’s wifi at Ushuaia, by the way, hence the blog post), all we did was eat, sleep, rave, repeat. And a bit of tanning here and there. Ok, fine, I tanned EVERY day. I had no choice — all the white people in my group were obsessed in getting some color. I tried to fight the urge at first by covering myself in blankets and towels but in the end, my inner Donatella prevailed!
I have a love/hate relationship with tanning. Being ultra tanned is a good look with the beach as a backdrop and you’re wearing close to nothing but once you’re in the city with fierce clothes, ugh, gross. It’s not a good lewk on me.
One of my highlights from this trip is that I was able to see a number of my favorite DJs perform their sets. I’m a huge fan of electronic music, especially progressive house. I have so much energy I could dance for hours straight, sober. I get high (and goosebumps!!!) hearing familiar tracks that I know the lyrics to. I always go all out whenever I dance. I don’t care about anyone else. Put your hands up in the air, dance, sweat it all out, lose weight, feel great. #putyourhandsupintheair
Nicky Romero at Pacha, check!
Hardwell at Ushuaia, check!
Martin Garrix at Ushuaia, check!
David Guetta both at Ushuaia (for David Guetta College) and Pacha (Fuck Me I’m Famous), check!
Nicky Romero was my favorite out of everyone but Hardwell was also very, very good. I’m so glad he has his Ibiza residency. I hope Nicky would get his soon. I also saw Axwell and Ingrosso but to be honest, their performance was my least favorite.
Am I ready to go home? Not really. Thank god summer is far from being over… mine only just begun.
