Crazy swim!

Bonjour loves! Sorry for not writing these days. This is a post I should’ve uploaded on Friday but I couldn’t find any Wifi until I came back home. 🙂 

drymadesToday was just perfect! I’d call it the best day of this summer. While me and my parents went to Drymades to spent the day, my friend Frida joined us. Drymades is in my opinion the best summer destination in Albania. It’s about 60 km away from Vlora, where my beach house is.

It was Friday and everybody was heading to the southern part of the country so we travelled about a hour and a half because of the road traffic. The journey to Drymades is a whole pleasure itself. The road takes you through the Llogara mountain. Usually everyone stops there to have a break, enjoy the nature and take lots of photos! And we did too.

On the way…

Chillin’ 😉

When arrived at Drymades we were a bit disappointed because the sea was not quiet at all. There were giant waves! After picking a nice place to stay at the beach ( Amsterdam Summer Club, which is a really fun zone, lots of music, amazing summer cocktails and schiuma party every weekend), me and Frida went swimming.

We stepped into the water and a giant wave just rolled us! And I was laughing hard while trying to breath and escape the other wave! And the other wave… And the other…’cause there were millions of waves before we

decided to take a break (which was about 10 min…Long time, huh?) It was impossible to get us out of the water 😀 We had a crazy swim 🙂

Suddenly, it was raining! And this was the moment when everybody joined us rolling in the waves and screaming! Can you imagine a group of people swimming in the rain and acting like crazy? It was so fun! We all enjoyed it.

Me and my lovely friend 🙂 (on the left Frida) ❤

The lunch at Drymades Inn restaurant was delicious. It immediately turned into my favourite place to eat and I highly recommend it.

The menu is light and healthy, seafood-based, and inspired by local flavors of Mediterranean cuisine. You’ll be surprised of the amazing dishes found here. Absolutely an great experience of taste! 😀  www.drymadesinn.al

CHEERS! 😉

In the meanwhile, the rain became heavier and it was impossible to get outside. So, we grabbed our bags, left and had another short break at Llogara. Now I’m exhausted 😦 but also very happy and pleased.

Bikini Trend!

I’ve been looking for bikini trends myself these past couple days. Last summer I found some very nice bikinis at Victoria’s Secret and ASOS too. So this year I’m checking their new models again.

Remember: there’s always a bikini type for your body. No matter what, you can always find the best bikini which really fits you and makes you feel comfortable.

I’m one of those girls who enjoy wearing a nice swimsuit and shine at the beach so I pay lots of attention at the beach-wears. I also found some very nice kaftan dresses at www.net-a-porter.com and www.asos.com which you can find here, here, here and here.

I like keeping it light, as a color and as a fabric too, even though I’ve seen some very nice black bikinis I don’t think that wearing something black near the shore is attractive.

Santorini… a fashionable destination!

 Before you start reading…

RELAX AND CLOSE YOUR EYES! NOW OPEN THEM and let me guide you through my favorite vacation destination! Enjoy! 😉 XX Image

Cheers to this amazing island, to the delicious food, luxury hotels, to the nature and the breathtaking blue mare, cheers to Santorini!

Even if you’ve never been to this Cyclades island in the Aegean Sea, you’d still recognize it immediately – candy-colored houses carved into cliffs, sapphire waters, gleaming white buildings topped with half-spheres the color of a stormy sky. Here you’ll find peace as you roam the black sand beaches or the streets of a provincial village like Imerovigli. Beautiful Oia is world famous for its sunsets, which seem tinted with every shade of an artist’s palette.

Image

Santorini is one of those places you’ll always want to go back again. It gives you a special feeling and fills you with positive energy.

Image

If you wears something white and blue you’ll be looking gorgeous 😉

My favorite hotel is “Santorini Princess”. Superb!

Image

You really get a princess treatment here, where the owners welcome you with a drink and a tour of the facilities. The rooms and common areas are tastefully decorated with attention to detail, the hotel is everything you expect from a 5 star establishment: clean; with friendly and helpful staff; and fantastic views of the sea and mountains. The rooftop restaurant serves delicious food at reasonable prices, where you can enjoy the beautiful views and the friendly and excellent service. The in-hotel spa is also definitely worth a visit, boasting the same excellence as the rest of the hotel. A stay here is an experience to remember for life, that I can highly recommend.” Josan family, Norway- says a tourist.

You can book here.

Santorini is one of those places where all the taverns start preparing for serving dinner to the costumers while they’re watching the sunset everyday at 6 pm. It’s a great atmosphere.

 

 You always feel like home under those light strings at the beach!

THINGS TO DO! 

Open Air Cinema KamariA must for every movie fan 🙂
Open Air Cinema Kamari
 
The OPEN AIR CINEMA KAMARI (Cinekamari) is located at the entrance to Kamari town on the main road to Fira town with a bus station just across the cinema entrance. Open from June until the first days of October.Entrance fee is 7 euro.Full bar with cocktails (try the strawberry Daiquiri and Mojito!), local beer and wine, refreshments, ice cream and snacks. Movies are in English version with Greek subtitles.Doors open 20.50 and the movie starts 21.30

Oia: Thirasia

Thirasia

If you are on Santorini for a vacation, take the time to visit Thirasia, and not just with the tourist boats if you can. It is like stepping back in time as long as you get out of the port of Korfos where all the tourist boats stop. Walk up to Manolas and it is like stepping back in time. I first visited Santorini 2 years ago and on Thirasia, nothing has changed. Stop in t the Panorama restaurant and enjoy the best traditional food that you can  have had on the islands. If you just want to have something to drink, Yiannis, the owner and cook has no problem with that. Just sit there and enjoy the fantastic view. It is not called Panorama for nothing.

Panorama restaurant. Try the pasta and the peinirli! Oh mamma mia~

There is another way to get to the island other than the tourist boats. You can take a small ferry from the port of Amoudi (Oia) over to the port of Riva nad take the bus up to Manolas. It goeas at 08:00 and 12:00 and the last one back is at 05:00. It costs €1.00 each way. 

If you need a nice place to stay I’d recommend  ‘Zacharo Rooms For Rent’, better known as ‘Jimmys’. It is the only hotel on the island. Jimmy and Roula are two of the nicest people you can ever ever meet and the peace and quiet at night will lead to one of the best nights of sleep you can ever have. The sunsets and sunrises on Thirasia are fantastic. If you spend a whole day there, you can walk to some of the 21 churches on the island. Walk to Kimissi Monastery at the southern tip of the island. The views over the caldera are fantastic and give you a very different perspective of the island group. On the way back, stop off in the abandoned town of Kera and climb up to Profitis Ilias. The view from the top is breathtaking. There is a lot to see, but make sure you have good walking shoes and lots of water.

Mnemossyne Artists House, Oia
Mnemossyne Artists House
“Excellent !
“Amazing Shop!”
Mnemossyne artists house is the place where you will find an unique variety of pieces of art like photographs, jewellery, clothes, etc…, all astonishingly handmade by local artists. The gallery has a very harmonic atmosphere in an elegant cave house located only a few steps before the famous sunset spot in Oia.
I’ve been here myself and trust me it’s on the list of must-visit places for every lady and art lover 😉
Hike from Fira to Oia- “Best thing to do in santorini”
Hike from Fira to Oia

It’s free! It’s good exercise. If you can’t do it you need to get in shape. Some amazing scenery and not terribly difficult terrain. Path is well marked. Not lots of people. Definitely leave as early as possible, put on sun block, and bring plenty of water. Enjoy

Be Summerish!

I do love summer as much as everyone else does and the main reason why I do is cause it makes me feel so alive. My agenda, if I can say I’ve got one, is so full of parties and fun days with friends. Those hot chocos near the fireplace are replaced by fresh summer cocktails on the shore. See, I thought that since we are all enjoying the sun and long days filled with joy, it’d be a must to write about: HOW WE CAN BE SUMMERISH? Summerish you wardrobe, your looks, your life… 1334806208-C7EY2SY
