Going through these last summer pictures, makes me feel kinda bittersweet.. I really am going to miss it a lot!
And not because I have experienced extraordinary things, but because I learned to be myself more than ever and to not be ashamed of who I am. There is no greater joy than being true to your inner self and to understand that the right people will find you and choose to be with you exactly for that reason. So, spread your wings, embrace that little weirdo you are and dive into the wilderness, steered by the compass of your soul.. That is what being free really means.

On our last day in Greece, we booked a boat trip around the Mount Athos a.k.a. "the Holy Mountain", which is home to 20 stavropegial Eastern Orthodox monasteries under the direct jurisdiction of the patriarch of Constantinople. There is a prohibition on entry for women, called avaton (Άβατον) in Greek, to make living in celibacy easier for those who have chosen to do so.
Since I'm from Bulgaria, it was an interesting fact that in the 14th century, Serbian Emperor Dušan the Mighty brought his wife, Helena of Bulgaria, to Mount Athos to protect her from the plague, but she did not touch the ground during her entire visit, as she was carried in the hand carriage all the time.
Visits to the peninsula are possible for laymen (not women), but they need a special permission.
Osiou Grigoriou (Gregory's) monastery,
dedicated to Saint Nicholas.

St. Panteleimon (Pantaleon's) Monastery is a Russian Orthodox monastery.
Simonopetra Monastery , also Monastery of Simonos Petra
The original monastery was called by Simon "New Bethlehem" and is to this day dedicated to the Nativity of Jesus.
Agiou Pavlou (Saint Paul's) monastery,
dedicated to the Presentation of Christ in the Temple.
We took the ferry boat from the port of Ouranoupoli, that's why we saw only the monasteries on the west coast. For those on the east coast, there is another ferry boat from Ierrisos.
Do you remember me saying that there is no sea water like the one in Greece. I hope you believe me know..
If every country is a colour, Greece definitely is turquoise.

As we were staying at Aristoteles Holiday Resort & Spa, which is just outside Ouranoupoli, we couldn't miss the opportunity to visit it and simply act like real tourists. I may be the only one, but I'm not that kind of person, who could lay on the beach all day.. I mean, I'm in Greece, I should do some sightseeing. Also, since visiting Greece was a very big dream of mine, I just wanted to really feel the atmosphere of this country, to learn more about this ancient culture and simply soak all the beauty in, you know?
Since we were about to walk a lot that evening, I opted for a very simple summery look, because I wanted to be comfortable, but at the same time a bit dressy (I mean, don't forget I'm on holiday..). We wandered through the little streets of the village, full of tavernas, cute little shops, flowers, flowers and more flowers.. Of course, I couldn't miss to take a picture of the local pharmacy too (Hello, we have a Pharmacist here..).
Everything was beyond my imagination and even more, especially under the light of the last sun rays.This is definitely one of the most beautiful, romantic and picturesque places I have ever visited. I can't wait to go back..
P.S. Here you can find Part 1 and Part 3.

September or not, I finally am going to show you the pictures from my summer holiday in Greece..
How should I start? Hmm.. I'm IN LOVE! Seriously, this must be love! I would happily live there all summer long in one of those beautiful little white houses with pink flowers and blue shutters.. And let's not forget about the palms, I mean, c'mon, don't you just want to plant like a hundred of them in your back yard or is it just me? (I don't even have a back yard, but you know what I mean..)
The thing that completely won me over definitely is the sea! I have seen sea before of course, but nothing compares to this one.. This colour is simply magical. But more about that in the next posts.
I hope you'll enjoy these pictures and be sure to tell me what do you think. Stay tuned, Part 2 and 3 are coming in a couple of days.
P.S. I know that you probably wouldn't link Greece with Bob Marley, but that was what we were listening on the beach every day, so it does it to me.
