At the beginning of June I had the chance to visit Volos Pelion Sporades in Greece. The trip lasted one week. In this blog post, I’d like to share with you a few photos that I took during my stay, as well as a few travel tips on things to do if you plan to visit this area.

I found the most beautiful store in Skiathos town. Luckily, they allowed me to take some pictures for you (and for me to remember). The store is called Lalaro. They sell extraordinary jewelry pieces and artsy-crafty stuff for home. I believe in minimalism and in possessing a few things. But in this store, I would buy everything, if I could.
