Those are some of the photos that I took in the last days in Samos. It is very hot here and when it’s so hot, either you stay somewhere in a shadow or you spend the whole day on the beach until the sunset. I bet you don’t want to take photos moving around and sweat like a pig, like I did.
Those photos where taken in Vathi and Pythagorio. More precisely, the photo with the spectacular view of Pythagorio was taken from the balcony of Hera 2 Hotel in Pythagorio and this is one more Samos tip, just in case you are thinking of visiting Samos and looking for a hotel with views to Pythagorio, then this hotel is for you.
And if you come to Greece, remember this word: kalimera (in Greek: καλημέρα). Kalimera means both Good morning and Have a nice day. ♥
From Samos with love is a collection of the photos that I took in the last days in different parts on this island, here and there. Consequently, this post includes everything that has to do with my life on this beautiful island and what I’ve seen around.
All the clothing items that are pictured on this post belong to the fashion shop 2 the little store, that my friends Eva&Stella have in Pythagorion. Visiting 2 the little store is one of my Samos travel tips, which I will include in one of the following blog posts, as many of you on Instagram have asked for Samos local tips and recommendations.
In those last days, while I am on holidays, apart from taking photos, it’s hard to find the time to work for The Viennese girl blog (because each blog post usually requires at least 5 hours work), and it’s even harder to find the words to write something down as my mind is totally empty but I guess this is the effect caused by the combination of happy holidays and summer mood. Nothing but love from Samos ♥
Well, now you might think that I exaggerate if I say summer in Greece is not the same as in other countries, but on the other side, some of you, might have the same opinion, especially those who have been in Greece once for holidays. For all the others who don’t have the same opinion, may those pictures above be persuasive enough and change your mind. 🙂
However, I remember some years ago, I was so excited to spend one week in Mallorca in Spain for holidays and although I was initially very excited to get there, after one week it hadn’t met my expectations. My initial thought was that I should try something different and go somewhere else on holidays and not only in Greece, but as I said, that Balearic island in Spain didn’t conquer my heart and makes me think that summer isn’t the same everywhere. Summer doesn’t have the same taste and smell everywhere. ♥
More Vienna posts from September. Now we are on holidays and I really enjoy taking photos wearing just a bikini and nothing else and try to forget the traumatic experience of taking pictures during the cold months.
Here are some photographs I took in Tsamadou Beach in Samos.They say that there is a harbor seal in this beach, called Argiro (don’t know why), but I still haven’t had the luck to spot her (the seal is female they say), although other people have seen that cute sea animal. The seal has become the highlight of this beach because generally, as far as I know, there are not so many seals in Greece, so it’s great to see them when they show up on the beach.
While I was uploading those photos on The Viennese Girl blog, I realized one more time how much I love those colors and how life is better by the sea.♥
Back to paradise, in other words, back to this beautiful island called Samos where I come every summer. My direct flight from Vienna to Samos had a delay of about 4 hours because of the strikes at the airport in Greece. I spent more hours waiting in the airport of Vienna than inside the airplane during the flight but I am here, so no complaints. I was supposed to land on the Greek territory at 15.00pm approximately and drive directly to the beach and even wore a bikini under my clothes, but because of the delay, my direct visit to the beach was postponed for the following day.
I had a very warm welcome by friends and family here, even fireworks in the sky. Apparently not for my arrival but for a local festivity in Pythagorion on that day. The day after my arrival we went to Tsamadou beach and spent the whole day there, then we headed to the village next to the beach, Kokkari, where we had an evening stroll before we get back home. On this post I share some photos of Kokkari.
So glad to see them all again, friends and family, and I enjoy my time by doing simple things that I missed so much, like eating cheese pie at 3.00 am in the night and drinking granita by the sea. So glad to be back to paradise and to call this piece of heaven on earth home sweet home.♥
I usually don’t hang out around the University of Vienna during the summer months but my visit this time was due to the instawalk that Igers Austria organized in cooperation with the University of Vienna. The idea of visiting areas where usually students don’t have access to like the rooftop had lead me to decide to join that little group of approximately 10 people last Thursday. I am also studying at the University of Vienna and, what a coincidence, that day I received my enrollment sticker for the next semester.
By the way, now that we are talking about the University of Vienna, I remember that last summer was awful. I had to write two small theses during the summer. That was very unpleasant. But this summer I am very grateful that I have no thesis to write and can enjoy carefree my summer holidays that begin in a few days from now…with that being said, my blog finally will get a bit more summery the following weeks!!
To my surprise, one of the photos I took during the instawalk and posted later on Instagram, has at the moment more than 2.600 likes. That is a lot. Thank you, guys! Not much left to say, I only know that I have to keep on working more and I am determined to do so, even when I have to write thesis at the same time…♥
