Travelling // Postcards from Corfu

No one can resist to a good moussaka dish!

....in the meantime me and my sister were taking selfies in every given opportunity

You can never have too many hats in this family!
.
Coffee lovers
.
The ever gorgeous Emily, who is not only beauty but brains as well. Her ability to speak four different languages made me feel, at least stupid!

Best handmade flip flops ever :)

Mum is a natural poser, can you tell?

I spent last afternoon sorting out my last pictures from my summer holidays in Corfu. I wanted to post them on the blog as this is my personal kind of diary and also a way to be in touch with my family and friends. 
Corfu offered me the best memories and I feel so blessed to have a great family and something that makes me saying goodbye so hard.

Until next time Corfu!

Love,
Anastasia

P.S: Tomorrow I am flying to Barcelona so stay tuned for a new adventure. More posts will come soon!

Travelling // Gouvia beach

Gouvia is a small port for private yachts Southern of Corfu town. The sea was warm and welcoming and we spent our morning drinking frappe, reading newspapers and playing the cards under the shadow.
In the afternoon we headed back to the hotel and the town centre to stroll around the cobbled streets and do some window shopping.

Typically we finished our night by eating frozen yogurt with a traditional, local Corfu product, Kum quat, as a topping. In case you have never tried it please do next time you get a chance, it is by far the most aromatic fruit I have ever tasted. I like it so much that I bought as many liqueur bottles as my hand luggage could hold-ok I might be exaggerating a tiny bit but you get the idea!

Until tomorrow…

Love,

Anastasia

Travelling // Corfu Castle

.
.
.

Gerald Durrell once said Corfu is the garden of the Gods and I can now see the reason.  Every corner has something to show you; there are historical monuments to admire, gardens from another era to walk and happy people to offer you a smile.
.

Thursday night dad and mum decided to visit the castle and I joined along, as I had never been before.  On our way we walked through the gardens and I was literally amazed by the beautiful flowers and palm trees.
The canal was majestic; these pictures do nothing compared to how beautiful it looks in reality.
We walked through the gate and all the pink coloured walls and white framed doors and windows made me feel like Cinderella or another fairy tale princess. Wearing a maxi skirt and a top also encouraged me to live the illusion for a second.
.

On the top of the hill there was a building similar to Parthenon and the view to the harbour was more than my expectations. During the sunset, sky and sea shared the same light blue colour and the boats were resting on the sea surface, making the whole landscape very picturesque. I took a moment to observe and absorb all this peacefulness.
.
.
.
.
Much to my surprise and opposed to my situation, mum and dad were climbing up and down the hill like teenagers in order to get the best view of the city. It was then that I realised they have recently taken up a new hobby, selfies. I think my parents are more advanced than I thought, go figure!
More adventures tomorrow, so stay tuned…         

Love,
Anastasia
