Kefalonia: Myrtos beach, Assos & Fiskardo

Myrtos beach, Kefalonia

Hola chicas y chicos!

I am spending my Summer holidays on my island, Kefalonia. It is a beautiful Greek island, located between Greece and Italy. It belongs to the Seven Islands and it has a total population of around 36000 -my town, Argostoli, has less than 10000 people. It seems quite small, eh? However, I can guarantee you that the people here are so loud, that it makes up for their small number. The island is full of life and energy. I grew up and  spent all my childhood and teenage years here, till I turned 18 -at that point, I left to pursue all my academic goals and get to know the world. Currently, it’s the 9th year that I am away. I don’t come back often (I guess twice a year is not considered to be “often”), however, every time I come back, I try to make the best out of my time here and enjoy moments with my family, as well as go around the island and enjoy its numerous beauties!

The previous week, we visited 3 of my favourite spots on the island: the famous Myrtos beach, Assos and Fiskardo. I took many photos, and right now I will share with you my favourite ones, and give you a taste of Kefalonia.

Come with me, then!

Hey everyone!

I hope that you are all doing well and that you are enjoying your holidays.

Currently, I am back to my island, Kefalonia. If you follow my Instagram/Facebook page, then you know that I’ve been in the UK, for a couple of weeks. I have so much to say about this amazing experience, that I will make a separate Blog post for that -very soon. However, I still owe you a post about the Botanical garden of Bratislava, so I thought that I should prepare this one, first. 😉

Let’s start!

BratisLove: Trekking adventure in Zelezna Studnicka

Are you ready for a magical adventure?

Today, I have an exciting new post for all of you who live around Bratislava! And for the rest of you, this can serve as an inspiration to do something similar in your area. 😉
So today, I will tell you about our latest trekking adventure. This time, we went to Železná studnička, an amazingly beautiful part of the Bratislava Forest Park. Yes, you might remember the Forest Park from my previous post. Actually, as you will follow our steps, wandering around, breathing fresh air and enjoying Nature, you will then take a hidden chairlift and magically transfer…. to the spot we’ve been on my previous post! (Ok: the chairlift is not hidden at all. And the transfer is not magical. But don’t spoil it for me with your realism, please.)
Let’s begin!

Prague: Intro (part 1/3)

Holidays. What a beautiful, beautiful word.

img_7344

For these inter-semestral holidays, we chose Prague.

The capital city of the Czech Republic. A beautiful city with a strong character, that combines the old with the new. Magnificent combination of architectural styles: Gothic, Neo-Gothic, Neo-Classical, Art Nouveau… Friendly people. Mouth watering food. Excellent beer. Heavenly music. A city of contrasts, which all blend together to create a burst of colours, light and magic!

With hundreds of photos taken, and my mind filled with experiences, I have decided to make a Special Extra on Prague.

Memories from Christmas 2016 (with photos & thoughts)

image-0-02-05-2ab8da804eca4723dd55d1e796b297d4fd5e61a2400457557423be29d72b8b1e-v

It’s been almost a month since Christmas 2016, and I honestly cannot understand how time flies by so fast. We think we can pin time down and control it, by filling out to-do lists and every day schedules, which we anxiously try to keep up with -but, truth is, the more we try to grab it, the easier it slips away.

In this entry, I want to share with you some photos from the Christmas period which just passed. Some of them are taken by my good friend, Antigoni.

I hope you enjoy them and travel with me, from North Europe to South -and back, again! : )

#Bleekend ep.1: Visit to Schloss Hof

Saturday, 26/11/2016

Hey everyone!

Oh my. It’s been a month since I last posted here. Life can get too busy, sometimes.

But! Last Saturday, we decided to take a day off and spend some quality time, doing something different. The next 3 weeks before Christmas will be tough in the Uni, so it was a good chance to have a small getaway and clear our minds from all the everyday stress.

While I was checking some webpages a few days ago, I discovered a perfect little Christmas market, in Austria, just next to the border of Slovakia. Austria is famous for its Christmas markets, which are SO many, I can’t even begin. So, when I first saw this particular market, I knew we shouldn’t miss the chance of visiting it.
