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.

Monday's Motivation | Dan Miller Quote

Good Morning and Have a Great Week!

Today's inspiration and psychological empowerment comes from the following statement of Dan Miller:
No high achiever ever woke up in the morning and said
‘Let’s see what happens.’


which - in free translation - means that:

No man who has ever succeed something great or impeccable, ever woke up in the morning willing to leave in chance his dreams and goals; instead of work hard to create the right opportunities for himself.

"Spend money. Change your hairstyle. Sell your old clothes and pursue your new style with the money you get from it. Be strong. Be patient. Get drunk if you want to, but not every weekend. Buy a chocolate bar every week when your favorite tv show is on. Take hot baths. Wake up early. Start jogging. Write. Find a friend who will listen to you and don’t stop until you find it. Study. Read. Make your Instagram cool. Write some more. Get that damn piercing. Pour yourself a glass of your favorite wine. Buy bath bubbles and bath more. Adore your body. Shave, for yourself. Book flights for next spring. Write this day down, write it all down. Cry. Finally feel some homesickness. Learn to be in silence. Learn to stand being alone. Drink lots of coffee. Get ready for Christmas. Feel smart at school. Spend a weekend alone. Take lots of selfies. Eat chocolate while watching reality tv-shows. Meditate. Stretch. Learn ballet. Buy overprized coffee. Learn to be with yourself."

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.

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!

The "First Resurrection"

It's the Orthodox Holy Saturday in Greece and early in the morning, in the Ionian island of Lefkada (much like Corfu's traditional customs) Greeks are celebrating the "First Resurrection" before Easter. With the sounding of the First Resurrection clay pots are fired from windows and balconies in the city of Lefkada. It is said that symbolizes the crushing of the evil.
But for those who don't want or don't have the time to watch this local custom, I think it's a mervelous day to go for a a swim on some of the island's stunning beaches.
I'll do that!
🐣 Happy Orthodox Easter everyone!
Don't eat soooo much: Apart from maintain our good health, we also have a body to praise this summer (which with such a sun today and with such a good mood, I believe it's going to be exciting)!

Neither anyone (man or woman) who is in love thinks that.
So maybe today is the first day - for some of us - to realize that too.

• March 31, 2019
Athens, Greece
In the Greek National Opera

Today, we watched in the Greek National Opera (now located at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation) the opera of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Le nozze di Figaro.
This play is also famous for the septet in Act Two: Starting with one, then two, three, four, five, six and in the end seven characters discuss with each other during a thrilling music part, which lasts for twenty minutes without, however, losing its clarity and power.
Briefly Review:
The positive elements are the impressive (and long-lasting) production, the colorful costumes, the (of course) excellent music, the ideal and fitting interpretations.
The cult figure of the pianist - dressed like a "blue prisoner" and his moves, as well as the passionate actors, ‎stood out.
The negatives elements are that the stage didn't have very good acoustics (the higher the balcony from the scene you were sitting, the more "null" the sound) and the (left or right) scenes, which were made to be seen clearly only from those who bought seats in the middle of the stage. The rest of visitors should have strong imagination.

Thoughts aren't black and white they're all colours and shades
From the pastels to the brightest to the dull and gloomiest of greys
And so is the canvas of love from the passionate pinks and reds to happy yellows and gay blues. From the exciting royal purples to the calm and pleasing greens
Love isn't pure and stark white of hope and happiness laid bare
Always stained with a little black of anger and doubt and despair
You have to dip the brush of life and be content with what you get
And hope that the design of love matches your heart's pallette.

I may be bragging right now but I'm glad to say moments like this how proud I am for my music education (proved and through me oldest posts) as I was among those who had for many years believed in Katerina Duska's special voice while at the same time I was wondering how come and this lady is not yet worldwide known - when unfortunately not many people knew her in her own country.
