Long time, no see. I was busy with my guests, who left on Wednesday afternoon, then worked long hours on Thursday and then summer came back to Norway, so I had to make sure I enjoyed it properly! 😉 Actually summer came back on Wednesday, so we´ve been frantic about staying outside in the sun, drinking ice coffee and white wine, going to the beach and so on.
No, I´m not in Mykonos right now, although I wish I were. It´s my number one destination for the time being. 😉 I want to lounge on a sun bed, say good-bye to bills and stress and just be. Eat Greek salad and drink some fizzy white wine while reading a good book or improving my instagram account. 😉
I´ve always known it was a very beautiful island, but the party vibe kind of scared me off. But now I´m ready to kick back and just not care if there´s a party somewhere, as long as I get my fair share of peace of mind. 😉
Summer is over and I get to wear my new APC wool coat, yippi yey! I got the cat back from our friends and Sammy is a cutie, as always, so life is good. I try to enjoy my afternoons, when I´m not working out with my Personal Trainer (for now, because I dread it so much I´ll be making him a voodoo doll soon enough!), cooking curries and soups and trying to stay away from sweets. 😉 Otherwise I´m getting back to reading, it seems I need to be in the right state of mind to be able to enjoy it and what better than a comfy blanket, a cup of tea and a scented candle to set the mood right. We´re already planning our next year´s trips, so stay tuned! Meanwhile I walk down on memory lane now and then and today it was Santorini. 😉 Enjoy!
Sorry for spamming, I´m home alone with the cat, the dog, a glass of Valpolicella and Billie Holiday. And I feel like sharing my holiday plans with you! Next year, I and my husband will have been married for 10 years, so I invited some of our dearest friends to an exotic holiday (at their own expense!;-)). I thought of different places, beginning with the Maldives and Seychelles, then Mauritius, La Reunion, Tahiti, Fiji, Hawaii and Zanzibar. They all have their charm and their advantages, the first two are known for being pricy, the others far away, so on and so forth. I keep going back to Holbox, a paradisiac island just outside Cancun in Mexico. It looks divine and it´s not as expensive as the others. Besides, you get to be around the inhabitants and get the Mexican spirit instead of being isolated in a resort. I dream of wearing my gorgeous wedding dress again, this time barefooted on the beach, with a crown of white flowers and a glass of champagne. And share this moment with my love and my closest friends.
Summer is approaching and I can´t help but think of all the incredible places we´ve visited along the years. To put it like that, Croatia was definitely one of them. We spent 12 days in Dubrovnik in 2007 and we were dazzled by the architecture, the pine tree forests and the sparkling sea. We´d take the boat to different places every other day and enjoyed some quiet time on the Lokrum Island, a nature reserve with peacocks and pine forests. The food was a mixture of Italian- with risotto and pasta and Mediterranean with grilled squid and shrimps. 😉 Although the services suffer from the post-communist syndrome, people were really nice. I could definitely go back, maybe to Hvar Island this time? Any suggestions?
