Songwriting in Beja, Portugal

One chilly morning in February I woke up with this restless feeling. First I couldn’t quite figure out what it meant, but when I finally managed to drag myself out of bed and went outside half asleep to walk the dog it dawned on me: it was time for a break from winter in Rotterdam. Sunrays, vinhos verdes and charming streets…I could almost feel, taste and see it: Beja.


And the best thing about it: it would be the perfect opportunity to dive deeper in my Portuguese lyrics and ask my friends there for help with my song translations!


So we went for quite a drive and spent a month in Beja. Now we’re back in Rotterdam again, but I wanted to share the beautiful, inspiring space where I’ve been writing in a few photos. Wouldn’t you love to spend time there?
