Half of the year is gone!

Hello! Please don’t be put off by the date on the left – today is July 28th, Monday! Because I have had kind of “different hectic weeks” it meant not enough time to post. Since I think this post is still VERY relevant to me, I’m recycling it again :) Hope you don’t mind and that you like it! I know we are in July, of course… But I’m still living in the first semester of the year… I confess – it was so good, I want to extend that feeling!

In June I only posted twice :( because of a trip and the World Cup. And in July only once :) Anyway, my sweet blogger-friends know exactly when I have a new post – when I comment on their blogs :) I don’t comment three times a week, but I’m a loyal reader. Despite that, I’m really interested in your posts! Do believe me!

The first half of the year is gone, the second has just started – I wanted to have track of what I have done so far and add the things I did in June, so to remember the time and the places. Here it goes!

1stsemester2014I bought many nice things, got nice presents, went to many museums – love history!, cooked quite a lot, bought new furniture, had birthday. Trips till June: England, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Russia, Poland, Lithuania, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Belgium, Germany, Greece, Brazil. Continue reading

First of all, thanks to all the amazing blog-friends for the always so lovely comments! They mean a lot to me and I always look forward to reading and answering them!

My recent posts pointed out places, not outfits. I travel dressed in a comfortable and quirky way and I have no problems with that – the outfits don’t “suit” the fashion world, but I prefer to be comfy to walk a lot in new places. This post shows a “real” outfit – although always quirky, the way I like it! It was in Dun Laoghaire – it means, sea :) – in May.

Dún Laoghaire (older anglicisation of which, Dunleary,- the way to pronounce it -, is also sometimes found) is a suburban seaside town in County Dublin, Ireland. It is formerly a major port of entry from Britain. From 1821 to 1920 it was named Kingstown. Source here

History and beauty!

History and beauty there! This is to show the port, not an ad

A very nice vintage hippie dress - I love hippie fashion, and denim jackets! Kenneth Cole bag, simple cout shoes from M & S - sooo comfy, and headband from a shop in Colmar, France on the flat's balcony at Bushy Park, Dublin

This is such a funny picture! Looks like a long dress, instead of midi - it's the effect of the stairs! I just noticed it later! But I liked the photo!

I’ll finish this post by saying that I’m packing – again – for a massive trip on Sunday, the 15th. I’ll miss people and places here very very much. I hope new adventures are open for me. This is the way it keeps going for me. Sometimes I wish to be less adventurous, but that was never my nature.

I hope you all have an amazing week with many sweet smiles and I thank you for your comments! They mean a lot to me, as I said, and they truly make my day!

Dream trip to Greece

Some lovely blogger-friends told me “waiting for thetrip 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!
