Samos island, Greece. 5th trip of the year!

I used to spend every summer holiday as a teenager in the homeland of Pythagoras. But in the last years I haven’t visited the island due to various personal reasons.

This May I went back, thanks to Visit Greece and Aegean Airlines, that invited me to join this press trip. Our visit in the island was short.

One day only. But what a beautiful day that was it!

It’s interesting to go back to a place that you know so well but haven’t visited the last years. Coming back means you see a familiar place with new, fresh eyes.

During my holidays in Samos I visited Proteas Blu resort. As I am a sucker for travel photography and hotels interior design, I couldn’t help but taking pictures of such a dreamy resort for The Viennese Girl blog. Everything in this luxury resort was peaceful, relaxing and purely elegant. Everything was screaming SUMMER and I was totally in my mediterranean element.

Now back to Vienna, I look out of the window of my little room, and there is neither sea nor blue skies on the horizon…

But am grateful for the good time spent in Proteas Blu Resort. It was so fun taking these photos and wish that I will get the chance to get back there soon in the near future. #seayousoon

Visiting 2 the little store is one of my Samos well kept secret, 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 feels totally empty. I guess that is the effect caused by the combination of happy holidays and summer mood. I am sending nothing but love from our beautiful island.

Holidays in the Greek islands

20 things I enjoy when I am on holidays in the Greek islands:

1. Closing the eyes and listening to the waves of sea.

2. Endless beach parties.

3. Having breakfast, lunch, and dinner next to the sea.

4. Looking at the endless blue of the sky and sea without thinking anything.

5. Smelling the aroma of Greek bakery in the middle of the night that challenges you to go there and taste everything. The choice is difficult. Begin with tiropita, spanakopita and for something sweet take a bugatsa.

6. Climbing on the roof of a white church in Santorini.

7. Eat eat eat. Fish, Suvlaki, musaka, greek salads, and fresh fruits.

8. Discovering a hidden cave and swimming naked.

9. Renting a motor yacht and having a hop on hop off tour from island to the next island.

10. Spending the whole day with bikini and pareo.

11. Listening to Greek music such as the song of Melina Merkouri that says that the moon is made from paper and the beach is fake. But if you had believed her just a little bit, everything would be real.

12. Feeling the sea salt sensation all over your body.

13. Looking around myself and seeing happy carefree people.

14. Losing the sense of time. What time is it? Is it Monday or Sunday? Where did you say that we are now?

15. Participating in a Panigiri!!! Eat and drink like a local and dance Syrtaki or Kalamatiano with strangers.

16. Letting myself enjoy the Greek hospitality. It will sound strange, but only when I lived in foreign countries, I really understood what Greek hospitality is. When you live in Greece, you don’t really understand it because you take it for granted, but when you go to live in a foreign country, then you get it. Only if you compare it with other countries, only if you see a different side, you understand what Greek hospitality is all about.

17. Window shopping jewelleries that are inspired from the ancient Greek architecture.

18. Having a hot tan. Going there with a skin which has the colour of milk and coming back home with a chocolate skin.

19. Walking barefoot in hot sand.

20. Coming back to your country, looking at the photos that you took in Greece and spontaneously having a big smile in your face that makes you desperately want to have a bit of Greece in your life and forever.

Do you have similar experiences in Greece?
