Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the earth are never alone or weary of life.



Hello everyone. I promised you my fun weekend away. 
I am a city girl but i have to say yes whenever i have the opportunity to travel to the countryside.
 To smell the fresh air, to walk around barefoot, feeling the earth 
( watching out for bugs; the only negative thing ). 

So let's travel together.


Breakfast and on the road...


Well that's me trying not to burn myself.
No lies, we had some hot days.


I put some more casual clothes
[ i am definitely not walking around like this (!) 
although my new shoes turned out extremely comfy! ]
and i snapped some many photos!!


The sun's rays were falling on flowers, 
making ​​their colours even more bright.


Defying the cement, those babies can climb every where,
just to show their beauty to the world.
Wonderful things to see among impersonal buildings.


 I have no idea who will suffer from bad luck for the next 7 years. :P


I had on schedule to walk around, so i decided the first day to visit the Ancient Argilos and the second the beach during noon when the sun was going to sleep. Unfortunately i was able to enter and see the excavations in the southern part of the hill, as these are accessible and not the main city.

The city was founded in the mid-7th century BC by settlers Adrians. The men in the general area of the Gulf Strymonic had founded three other colonies, Acanthus, Sani and Stagira, birthplace of Aristotle. The clay was the easternmost and oldest. among the four, a colony of Andros. 


I walked, having the sea into my right hand and when i got my eyes up, 
i realised i had walked one good kilometre. A spot away from where we swim, 
full with rocks; it felt like an abandoned place where ships can find their death.


I "bought" this incredibly comfortable chair
and practically i lived there with my book and ice drinks.


Greek honey ( by my uncle's bees ) ,
Greek yoghurt and walnuts are the most delicious way to fresh your soul.


And it was impossible for me to turn home empty handed.
I got a mosquito infection in my back (!) and this beautiful antique-ish furniture
- my grandma told me she bought it before 40 to 45 years - so yeah!!

  2. The Argilos ruins are especially interesting to me. Thank you for posting pictures! (I am from Croatia and live in Rome so I've lived among ancient cities all my life, I love them and have always been interested, I always go see whenever they unearth something "new".)

Awwww and i cannot agree more, summer is a real chalenge for everyone who likes black outfits. I insist on simplicity because everything bothers me during summer :P

  4. I love getting out into the countryside, luckily I live in a very rural area but my ideal place to live would be in the middle of nowhere with a deep dark forest on my doorstep and a raging river a stones throw away, but we can't all get what we want can we! I love seeing pictures of your adventures, and I especially love your shoes! ♥
