Some lovely blogger-friends told me “waiting for the ‘trip to Greece‘ post!” – here it is! In 2012 the lovely Em (please check her blog out, really outstanding!) came to London and we met! She invited me to visit her in her city – Thessaloniki, lovely! 8 days with nice tours, great food, phenomenal views and some shopping too (shown here)! A dream trip!
Some years ago I was in Athens, Igoumenitsa, Corfu, Patras and Corinth. Now Em, her boyfriend and cousin showed me Thessaloniki, Panorama, Thermi, N. Epivates, Perea and Chalkidiki (I loved Skione!) Her mother is, for me, the best cook in the world and Em made melomakarona for me! I ate delicious things I didn’t know, learned more Greek words and saw great churches!
They were so lovely and patient – took so many photos (thanks)! I tried to show some now, not only 3 A lot, but the blog is a “diary” and these are my favorite pictures. I could split them into 2 posts, but… no. It’s now. Please bear with me – let’s start the tour!
In order to be able to show myself and the amazing landscape, contrarily to my old blog, where I showed many buildings with great architecture, I decided to gather both: nearly every picture has the great Greek views and myself Hope you don’t find it boring!
The trip started in Dublin, then Brussels where I got some beauty products (here) and then Thessaloniki. The return trip was Thessaloniki–Brussels, where I got a tour through Charleroi, the third biggest city in Belgium (it was amazing – I was in the country before, but always in Brussels) and then got the Eurostar to London, where I stayed at my friend N.’s before going home to Bewdley.
When I came back to Dublin, Em and her mother (they are so sweet!) sent me a parcel full of the most delicious items you can imagine!
If you can still stand… now my favorite picture!
Thank you a lot for your patience and lovely comments! They mean so much to me!
Hope you all have a great week with loads of smiles!
