Where to stay in Patmos island

We tried two different kind of accommodations which are located in two different parts of the island. We often like to do that. By doing this, we get to experience one island in different ways and see it from different perspectives. So we spent two nights in a unique and historic countryside estate that is called Langada and three nights at one of the beautiful villas of Onar Patmos.

Highlight of my trip to Patmos island was the encounter with the painter Andreas Kalatzis. We passed by his studio/gallery late in the evening and we saw him working on an art piece that he had to ship to the US. Something attracted us to him, and without giving it a second thought, we jumped into his studio! It felt immediately like we have been knowing each other for years. Everything about him, his life and his work was incredible inspiring to us! We wanted to keep in touch with him. Therefore, we asked for his business card. He took a small piece of paper, he drew a couple on it, and on the back he wrote his name and his telephone number! Definitely the most beautiful business card I’ve ever seen! And the only one I will keep in my wallet!

Chania’s Old Venetian Harbour

In the wonderful country of Greece, there are many beautiful places to visit, and one of them is Chania on the island of Crete. Chania, also known as La Canée (in French), was the capital of Crete from 1201 until 1463 when it was conquered by the Ottoman Empire; in 1898 it became part of independent Greece.

The Breathtakingly Beautiful Colors of Chania

If you’re on the hunt for some new travel photography inspiration, look no further than Chania, Crete. This Greek island boasts everything from beaches so blue they look like they’ve been coloured in by crayons to rocky crags that rise out of the sea as if in defiance of gravity itself. The colours aren’t just limited to the scenery, either—the houses that line the streets of Chania town are painted in hues ranging from bubblegum pink to emerald green to lemon yellow.

The city of Chania in Crete is rich in history and culture, with many well-preserved monuments, stunning churches and impressive buildings dating back to the Venetian era.

If you’re visiting Crete, it’s not just these historical attractions that make Chania so much fun. There are also plenty of beautiful beaches nearby to visit, as well as little-known bays and natural parks to explore. It’s also home to one of the most vibrant art scenes in Greece – with talented young painters sharing their work in public places across the city.

A Love Letter to My Greek Sandals

A Love Letter to My Greek Sandals – Backstory

A decade ago, I bought my first pair of Greek sandals and have been in love with them ever since. This article will be a long-winded and rambling piece about how much I adore these shoes and why I think everyone should own a pair or two in their lives (or ten or fifteen). Consider this your guide to everything you need to know about Greek sandals, and why you should consider taking the plunge yourself. You’ll never regret it!

Why I love my sandals

Greek sandals have been around since ancient times and they haven’t lost their popularity since then, especially not in the summer time! They are one of the most iconic styles of footwear ever created and there are still many companies that produce Greek sandals to this day. Here’s why I love them so much and why you should too!

They are comfortable and perfect for the warmer days. They can be dressed up or down and go with everything. I can wear them in the rain and they don’t get ruined. When it’s cold, they’re stylishly warm. There is nothing like a good pair of sandals!

ANESIS, a Greek brand specializing in women’s shoes, sent me these three pair of sandals. They are going to accompany all the happy moments in summer 2021. Thank you Sofia!

Sunset in Chania

Sunset in Chania

The other day while I was taking photos during sunset time in Chania. A guy approached me to show me the drone video he was filming. We sat down on the bench and he told me he is a Chania based photographer. I asked him whether he would like to give me this video to post it on my Instagram and on THE VIENNESE GIRL blog, and he accepted. I am completely in love with drone videos. And how lovely it is to go to a place where you know no one (or maybe just a few) and meet people who share the same passion! To be honest, I wished for this to happened and it did!

Chania’s Sunsets: A Photographic Journey

With its unique location, Chania is one of the most beautiful cities in Greece. Sitting along the Aegean Sea, Chania’s Venetian buildings and its harbour provide breathtaking views that are only made better by the glorious sunsets that take place there every evening as the sun dips down into the horizon. The city has numerous marinas where you can enjoy spectacular views of the sunset and will make you feel like you’re in an Instagram photo shoot.

Best time of day to shoot a sunset

Early morning, late afternoon, or dusk. These are the times when the sun is at its lowest in the sky, creating long shadows and interesting colors. Have your camera in Manual mode so that you can control shutter speed and aperture settings.
