A Picturesque Escape to Sonop, Namibia
5:30- 6:00 AM – I love to start my day with journaling and meditation, especially while on vacation. The sunrise is wildly scenic here in Namibia, especially at Zannier Hotel, Sonop.
6:30 – 7:00 AM – I go for a quick swim in the Lodge pool, it really wakes me up! After my shower I apply a clean SPF, with the desert heat I prefer to keep my face make-up free.
8:00 AM – My partner and I have breakfast together while enjoying the stunning desert view. Breakfast usually consists of local fruit, poached eggs with greens, Avocado and Green Tea.

9:00 – 13:00 PM – We board a helicopter and take a scenic flight over the dunes, to where the sand meets the ocean. A breathtaking experience.
13:00 PM – Lunch is usually served inside or outside the Lodge. Being a Vegetarian the options were great and innovative meals were created especially for me.
14:30- 17:00 PM– In the afternoon I focus on my upcoming collections for Alicia Swim and our new website launch. I also take some time to respond to e-mails and business queries.
17:00 – 19:00 PM – We go for an afternoon drive throughout the property, taking pictures in the new collection and admiring the picturesque landscapes.
19:15 PM – I quickly get ready for dinner, as I don’t want to miss the sunset!
19:30 – 21:30 PM – Dinner is served outdoors under the stars, the full moon giving us a spectacular show.
21:30 – 22:30 PM – After dinner we played a board game. Relaxing vacation time is crucial to me, as I travel frequently, also reading a good book is grounding before going to sleep.
23:00 PM- It’s time to get ready for bed, my phone is switched to airplane mode. Before falling asleep, I apply Aurelia’s Cell Repair night oil and sometimes I will do an evening meditation to wind down as well. Looking forward to the morning to continue our adventure.
