"Just imagine: a beach in the middle of nowhere. You can see a camper with sea view. You can hear Portuguese music coming from the speakers. The canopy is out and there are some chairs underneath. On the table is a plate of freshly grilled fish and a glass of vinho verde. Welcome to my surfer's life."
Journalist Veerle Helsen went out-of-office for six months, bought an old camper and traveled by herself along the Spanish and Portuguese coastline. Her book, Surf & Stay, is a visual travel guide of sorts, with over 100 stunning surf spots, authentic beach restaurants, hidden hotels, architectural gems, secret camper sites and the most idyllic road and surf trips imaginable.
