THE SUNSET

19 Jul

SANTORINI IS DEFINITELY ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACES I HAVE EVER VISITED. WHEN VISITING SANTORINI, THIS MAGICALLY BEAUTIFUL LITTLE VILLAGE CALLED OIA IS A MUST PLACE TO VISIT.
THE VILLAGE IS SO PRETTY AND PICTURESQUE, AND THE VIEWS ARE BREATHTAKING…HIGHLY RECOMMEND STAYING IN OIA AT LEAST ONE NIGHT.THE SUNSETS  IS THE PLACE TO GO AND EXPERIENCE THE MAGICAL SUNSET IN SANTORINI. PERFECT PLACE TO THROW A WEDDING OR OTHER PARTY AS WELL IF PLANNING WEDDING SOMEWHERE IN THE WORLD….THERE ARE TWO LEVELED ROOF TOP TERRACE PLAYING LOVELY AMBIENT ELEVATOR MUSIC…THE AMBIENCE IS VERY SINGULAR….YOU CAN´T AVOID FEELING ROMANTIC IN THIS PLACE….

CHECK OUT THIS POORLY TAKEN VIDEO, SO YOU GET A FEELING HOW COOL THIS PLACE REALLY IS :

THERE IS A LITTLE SNACK BAR AND CAFE DOWNSTAIRS, SERVING FRESH AND NICE TRADITIONAL GREEK SNACKS AND DRINKS…
IF YOU ARE TRAVELING DURING MAY, BEFORE HIGH SEASON, THE WIND CAN BE WILD AND THE NIGHTS CAN BE SUPER-CHILLY, SO PACK SOME WARM PIECES OF CLOTHING IN YOUR SUITCASE.WINES FROM LOCAL WINERIES ARE LOVELY….AND THIS IS HOW THE SUNSET GOES, IT STARTS ABOUT 8:00 PM….SOMETHING EVERYONE SHOULD EXPERIENCE ONCE IN THEIR LIFE….AND EVEN IF THE TIME IS 10:00 PM THE SKY IS MAGICALLY COLOURED, THERE IS NO NEED TO ADD DEPTH OR COLOUR IN THE PICTURES TAKEN IN THIS MEMORABLE PLACE….BACK AT HE HOTEL TIRED BUT HAPPY…

NEON BY THE POOL

5 Jul

OUR  FAVOURITE HOLIDAY  STUFF IS CHILLING OUT BY THE POOL….SINCE THE HOTEL WAS FULL OF CHINESE TOURISTS WITH NO INTEREST OF SUNBATHING OR SWIMMING, WE HAD THE POOL JUST  FOR OURSELVES , IT FELT LIKE WE HAD A PRIVATE POOL THE WHOLE WEEK OF OUR STAY.HINTS OF NEON COLOURS IN  ACCESSORIES OR CLOTHING GIVES AN ENERGETIC SPICE TO ANY OUTFIT. I FOUND THESE LOVELY CHARM BRACELETS FROM A LOCAL SHOP.LITTLE VISITOR BY THE POOL….EVERY HOLIDAY-MAN MUST HAVES, PANAMA HAT AND WHITE CONVERSE ALL STARS.MY FAVOURITE HOLIDAY MUST HAVES, GOLDEN ACCESSORIZE FLIP FLOPS , LOUIS VUITTON MEDIUM SIZE NEVERFULL AND JUTE BAG.WORKING BY THE POOL….
LOVELY LUNCH, DELICIOUS SOUVLAKIS, MY ULTIMATE FAVOURITE IS FALAFEL SOUVLAKI…YAMMY…AFTERNOON STRAWBERRIES AND COMPLIMENTARY WINE FROM THE HOTEL….BOUGHT THIS NEON PINK HOODIE FROM A LOCAL BRAND CALLED FLOW. I LOVE THE LONG HEM OF IT. JUST PERFECT FOR JOGGING…

BRIGHT AND FRESH PRINTS FROM MY H&M BIKINIS…
I FOUND NICE BRIGHT NEON COLOURED NAIL POLISHES FOR MY WORK….

ONE DAY THE SUN WAS SHINING, BUT THE WIND MADE IT TOO COLD AND IMPOSSIBLE TO BE SUNBATHING BY THE POOL, SO WE NEEDED TO FIGURE OUT PLAN B….
MY MAXI DRESS FROM HERE BEFORE THE HIGH SEASON, DURING MAY, WINDY DAYS CAN BE IMPOSSIBLE TO HANDLE FOR SUNBATHERS, BUT NO WORRIES….EVEN IF THE REST OF THE ISLAND WOULD BE SUPER-WINDY, THERE IS A BEACH CALLED PERISSA BEACH WHICH IS NOT WINDY AT ALL FOR IT´S HIDDEN LOCATION….
SANTORINI BEACHES ARE NOT THE MOST ATTRACTIVE ONES, BUT THIS PERISSA BEACH WAS NICE. THERE IS BEACH CLUB WITH ACTIVITIES FOR FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN AND LITTLE BEACH BOULEVARD WITH RESTAURANTS, BARS AND LITTLE SHOPS.

IMEROVIGLI

4 Jul

OUR LITTLE HOLIDAY STORY CONTINUES….

IT WAS TIME TO ADVENTURE THE ISLAND A BIT AND CHECK OUT A LITTLE VILLAGE CALLED IMEROVIGLI…
MY OUTFIT; JEANS SHORTS, BRACELETS AND NECKLACE FROM HERE, SHIRT FROM HERE, NEVERFULL BAG FROM LOUIS VUTTON, WHITE AND GOLD WATCH FROM MICHAEL KORS, SUNGLASSES FROM GUCCI AND BOW JELLY BALLERINAS FROM SUPERGA.

MY LOVE´S OUTFIT; ALL THE CLOTHING FROM RALPH LAUREN AND BOAT SHOES FROM HERE.

IMEROVIGLI IS  A TRADITIONAL VILLAGE AND IT´S THE EXTENSION OF FIRA BUT IS SITUATED ON A HIGHER CLIFF. THE NAME COMES FROM THE WORD `VIGLA`WHICH MEANS `DAY`. IN FRONT OF THE VILLAGE IS LOCATED AN ENORMOUS ROCK CALLED SKAROS. UNTIL 1800, SKAROS WAS PART OF THE LAND AND HAD A CASTLE ON IT WHERE ALL THE ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICES OF THE ISLAND WERE LOCATED. THE VILLAGE WAS ALMOST DESTROYED BY THE EARTHQUAKE OF 1956, AND THE CLIFF-EDGE HOUSES WERE ABANDONED BUT TOURIST TRADE STARTED UP AGAIN IN THE 1970´S. TODAY IMEROVIGLI IS A BEAUTIFUL AND QUIET VILLAGE. HIGHLY RECOMMEND FOR COUPLES SEEKING FOR TRANQUILITY, SPECTACULAR VIEWS AND ROMANTIC GETAWAYS.

SANTORININI IN GENERAL IS NOT THE BEST PLACE TO GO WITH CHILDREN OR ELDERLY PEOPLE WITH REDUCED MOBILITY, SINCE THE TERRAIN OF THE ISLAND IS VERY CHALLENGING.

 WONDERFUL PLACES, VIEWS, RESTAURANTS, HOTELS, CAFETERIAS AND FRIENDLY PEOPLE…..LOVE THE PLACE.LOVELY LITTLE LAID BACK FURRY FRIEND….AND THE STORY CONTINUES….

LITTLE HOLIDAY

21 Jun

AFTER WORKING HARD IT WAS TIME FOR A LITTLE HOLIDAY, THE MORNING STARTED WITH WONDERFUL LITTLE SUPRISES FROM MY LOVE ….. EVEN IF THE CHAMPAGNE WAS WARM AND THE CUPS WERE PLASTIC, IT DIDN´T MATTER…. WE WERE SO HAPPY TO DISCOVER NEW HOLIDAY DESTINATION ONLY 3 HOURS AND 20 MINUTES FLIGHT AWAY FROM HOME. OUR DESTINATION WAS SANTORINI,STUNNING LITTLE ISLAND IN GREECE.WE BOOKED ONLY FLIGHTS AND CHOOSED OUR HOTEL NOT FROM THE TOURIST CROWDED BEACHES BUT THE CITY CENTRE OF SANTORINI CALLED FIRA. WE FOUND A  GREAT HALF PRICE HOTEL- DEAL FROM WWW.YEEGO.COM. OUR HOTEL WAS LITTLE DAEDALUS HOTEL WHICH IS MANAGED BY FRIENDLY GREEK FAMILY.  WE CHOOSE THIS HOTEL BECAUSE OF  THE GOOD CENTRAL LOCATION AND NICE  POOL AREA. CUTE LITTLE HOTEL GARDENFRESH AND NICE POOL AREA
EVEN WHEN WE TRAVEL, WE PREFER HOTEL ROOMS WITH FRESH DECORATION, LOVED THE MINIMALISTIC ROOMS WITH HARMONIUS WHITE AND BEIGE COLOURS….OUR ROOM BALCONY HAD A VIEW OVERLOOKING THE POOL AREA.MY TRAVELING OUTFIT; BLOUSE FROM HERE, LOWKY JEANS AND DIAMOND SANDALS FROM HERE, GOLDEN CHAIN BELT VINTAGE.AFTER A LITTLE CHILL OUT BY THE POOL WE LEFT TO DISCOVER THE ISLAND….
GREEK LUNCH; FETA SALAD, TZATZIKI, MOUSAKA AND WHITE WINE FROM A LOCAL WINERY….YAMMY
WE FELL IN LOVE WITH SANTORINI AND IT´S BEAUTIFUL AUTHENTIC GREEK SURROUNDINGS IMMEDIATELY. THE VIEWS ARE UNBELIAVABLE AND THE PLACE IS FULL OF WONDERFUL RESTAURANTS AND CAFETERIAS….
FRAPPE SPICED WITH STUNNING VIEWS….

IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A NICE WORKOUT WITH STUNNING VIEWS THERE ARE 600 NUMBERED  STEPS  YOU HAVE TO WALK DOWN AND UP TO REACH THE OLD PORT VOLCANO, BUT IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A EASY WAY DOWN OR UP YOU CAN TAKE A RIDE WITH CABLE CAR OR MULE….I PERSONALLY THINK CABLE CAR IS BETTER CHOICE, SINCE I FEEL BAD FOR POOR LITTLE MULES…..

AND THE STORY WILL CONTINUE…..
