Absolute heaven, waking up at the @martinhal family resort in Sagres, Portugal. It‘s the weekend, 20 degrees and the sun shining in my face as I type this over breakfast on the terrace. I am incredibly excited to be spending the coming 10 days in 3 of the 4 Martinhal hotels in Sagres, Cascais and Lisbon together with my good friend @twofoodieseating and our kids. Martinhal is synonymous for class A family vacation and from kids club to heated pools there is nothing left to be desired here for folks with little people like myself. This photo was taken this morning around 7.30 when the sun had just come up. It‘s showing the living room area on the top floor of the 2 story house we are staying in. It‘s off season but it‘s really also my favorite time to come here ❤️ #sponsoredtravel#portugal#martinhal#familytravel
🥜Peanut plants as far as the eye can see somewhere between San Antonio and Austin, Texas.
🥜Did you know that peanuts grow underground? Each peanut blossom becomes a peg and implants itself in the ground where a mature peanut forms. 🥜Every part of the plant has a purpose. The leaves and branches are turned into peanut hay, and the shells are ground up for animal feed. The nuts are obviously for us. 🥜 Last but not least, peanuts are an affordable, nutritious source of fat and plant-based protein, which also provide fiber, vitamin E, B-vitamins, magnesium and phosphorus. That's a pretty impressive nutrition spread if you ask me.
Good night you beautiful place! Okay, to be honest I am not going to bed but to a cocktail party overlooking the ocean 😉
Since I am German I am not really into Thanksgiving traditions but I am sure grateful for this amazing world and that I get to explore its beauty and call that my job.
What are you grateful for this year?

I realized that floating in the warm shallow ocean is like being in a floatation tank without the cover - utterly relaxing. I spent so much time in this little lagoon I thought at some point the staff was going to come to pull me out 😂 Vitamin Sea at its best!
Moved on to my last resort of this amazing Maldives trip: Dhigali.
After a delayed start (who knew fancy seaplanes are so unpunctual) I have spent my time working on my tan, diving and enjoying the most insane sunsets. Dhigali is a lot more modern than many Maldives resorts and great for a girlfriend getaway for ocean lovers - these overwater villas combine the best of both world (and if you zoom in you can even seen an oversized rubber duckie - perfect for IG shots!). Have you ever stayed in an overwater room?? #sponsoredtravel#postedbyannika#dhigali#dhigalimaldives#maldives
I had fun learning to make sushi at the Tsukiji cooking school in Tokyo, Japan. (I think I need to keep my day job though😂) we also made dashi—classic Japanese stock—check out my story for the how-to. #umamiworld#sponsoredtravel
I am usually not a morning person and if I had to choose between sunrise and sunset I’d always be a sunset girl (plus those come with cocktails).
Mind you, here at Kandolhu I gained an hour - yes, the Maldives have different time zones! - so getting up for sunrise is easy. Also, me and some friends realized that it is really hard to tell the difference between sunrise and sunset shots. So what do you think - did I take this one last night or this morning?

I had just enough time to scramble this beautiful mountain before the sun set. A solo sunset hike was just what the doctor ordered. I’m in Scottsdale meeting amazingly brilliant people and learning all about @optupapp and making healthy choices. Nature hikes are good for the body and the soul. #optup#sponsoredtravel
