Agia Anna | Travel to Naxos Greece!

What do you know about Agia Anna at Naxos Greece?
Do you want to tell me what I know first?
◉ First of all I know that you can't go on a summer vacation in Naxos and not pass through the village of Agia Anna (Santa Anna) and its homonymous beach, at least for a swim or for dining overlooking a stunning - in color - sea or just as you go by, for example on the other favorite beach of mine, the Mikri Vigla beach.
Agia Anna beach is the natural coast boarder of “Agios Prokopios” beach, it's located opposite Paros island and is considered to be one of the most famous and popular beaches...

Travel to Germany | Heidelberg

Heidelberg is considered to be one of the most beautiful cities in Germany. It is administratively owned by the Land of Baden-Württemberg and is located geographically at the northwestern end of this state.
In the past it was a center of German romance, and today it is one of the main tourist destinations, mainly thanks to the picturesque ruins of the palace, the old town (Altstadt), its university (which was founded in 1386 AD and is the oldest in Germany), Necar river and other attractions.

Visit Karlsruhe | What to do and see in the city

You are might planning to but haven't visited yet the beautiful city of Karlsruhe in Germany.

Well, no worries.
You are just like me a few days ago.

Except the fact that now I am the one who already went and came back to tell you lots of things that even I couldn’t find earlier in all the Google searches I’ve made on the Internet with the importance of that specific detail that makes all the difference.

So now I've got for you the best things to do while you are traveling to Karlsruhe.
Where to go, the attractions you must see, where to stay, what to eat and definitely where to drink cocktails or good local beer.

But let's start from the basics before we go into the interesting info

From Baden-Baden to Karlsruhe | With local bus and train

As I was preparing the article with my travel experiences from my recent trip to Karlsruhe, I thought I should also write about how you can travel from Baden-Baden airport in a local bus and train to Karlsruhe (an option that you can combine along with a Ryanair's cheap flight at this airport and as a result it will significantly reduce the total budget of your corresponding trip).

Travel with Ryanair | The Do's and Don’ts list

They might have said to you or you might somehow figure out that traveling with Ryanair is an easy thing to do and a quite affordable way to fly to your destination.
Well this is half a truth.
Because if you are an inexperienced traveler or a first time passenger of Ryanair there are some serious issues to take care, BEFORE you enter the plane.

A small getaway from Athens!

Today was finally the day for my first swim (of this summer). Keeping this in mind, we organized a proper getaway very close to the center of the capital and definately by the sea.
The family hotel Kokkinis (Hotel Cokkinis) is located in Megara, just above the beach of Kakia Skala (50 km from the center of Athens on the way to Kinetta and about 6.5 km far from it) and offers its residents, apart from the sea view rooms, the opportunity to enjoy their coffee or lunch overlooking the sea as well as to swim in the turquoise waters of the (almost) “private beach” it has underneath...

Have a happy month!

You know that 💙 I LOVE LEFKADA.
So today, I am sharing another one new photo from the beach of Pefkoulia (in Lefkada, Greece) with its wonderful blue color of the sea.
May 1 • also known as Labour Day • celebrated in many countries as a traditional springtime festival or as an international day honoring workers. In Greece there is a public strike and the whole country has been left without national rail, island ferry or other transport services. (Hope you didn't had any travel plans, depending on our public transportation system).
Also Greeks celebrate spring and nature on May 1st (known as Protomagia) by “catching the May” (according to the Greek traditional custom) and making lovely flowers coronets to hang outside their doors for a “good luck”! 🌼 Happy month everyone!
