App of the week: Polaroid Swing


Yet again, polaroids are reinvented with another image app. As a big fan of the Polaroid brand, I was very excited to learn about the release of the brand new app Swing. The imaging app lets you shoot 60 burst photos that develop into animated images. This is not the first app of its kind, what sets Swing apart is that you control the playback of the moving picture with the motion of your phone and your fingertips.

Swing is still a very basic application, and you are not even able to comment on pictures yet. At the same time, Swing presents a pleasing minimalistic design in its simplicity and is very straightforward to use.

Loving Lisbon


Our European mini-tour continued in Lisboa (you can read all about our 12-hour stay in Amsterdam here). Coming from rainy and cloudy weather in the Netherlands, it was quite nice feeling the 34*+ celsius degree weather right away when leaving the airplane. We rented an AirBnb-apartment in the Mouraria-area, a colorful and multicultural area of Lisbon close to the city center, Saint George’s Castle and Alfama (the heart of the historic fado-movement).

This was the perfect timing to visit Lisboa since we got to experience Portugal winning the Euro 2016 football championship with the whole city watching in excitement at the main city square. We also went to the Nos Alive Festival  – one of Europes biggest music festivals located at Passeio Maritimo de Alges, right by the beach. A perfect getaway 20 minutes away from the city center.
