Visit Pompeii Italy

Pompeii was built in the 5th century BC. from the Greeks on the coast of Campania, 14 miles (23 km) southeast of Naples, at the base of Mount Vesuvius. Pompeii fell into the hands of the Romans in 89 BC but it was greatly influenced in art, architecture and religion by the great Greco-Roman culture. That's why when you'll visit Pompei's archaelogical park, you will recognise many greek statues as well as greek temples, dedicated to Greek (and later) Roman gods like the temple of...

Day one for the Authentic Big Blue 2019

Hold your breath, dive into the big blue!

✍️ In autumn of 2017 we “revived” the legendary film “LE GRAND BLEU” (“THE BIG BLUE”) by organizing, in Amorgos, a unique event; an international free-diving tournament, the Authentic Big Blue; at the location where the most memorable scenes of the film were shot, scenes that created unique feelings.
The second ABB tournament was organized in September 2018 and it was an anniversary event since it was 30 years after the release of “Le Grand Bleu“ film.
The 3rd event will be held from today; 22 – 28 of September 2019 and will be focused on the divers who honor us with their presence every year. Inspired by the magical blue, with the aura of the island and the unique awe-inspiring landscape on our side; this year we create a special, sporting and tourist experience.

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...

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.

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).

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!
