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!

Memories from Christmas 2016 (with photos & thoughts)

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! : )

Day trip to Trizonia and Nafpakto

Summer holidays in Greece wouldn’t be complete without some short, day trips to explore the country! It’s amazing how just a day away can be so relaxing.

A travel agency in our town organised a group day trip to Trizonia, and we decided to join them. Trizonia is a tiny little island, just 2.5 sq. kilometres. There are only 50 houses on the island -and around 150 inhabitants. Cars are prohibited there (there are 2 vehicles that are used only in case of emergency) and the only sounds you can hear are the ones from the cicadas (funny fact: in Greek, “Trizonia” means “cicadas”), the birds and the sea!
