Baixa House

Baixa House

In the middle of last October I had the chance to visit Lisbon for the very first time, stay and photograph Baixa House. In this blog post, I would like to share with you a few photos that I took during my short stay at Baixa House. When I say short stay, it was a 3 nights stay, to be more precise with you. I feel very happy for the opportunity to photograph Baixa House, I loved the interior design, and I wish I will be able to go back and stay a little bit longer. As for now, I will let the photos do all the talking.

When you stay at Baixa House, you feel like you own an apartment in Lisbon. This is not a typical hotel. This is a five-star apartment building with several beautiful meticulously curated apartments. Curated in a way that it feels quite natural and effortless to you. The apartment I stayed at was on the fourth floor and it was called Gulbenkian. I had a balcony with a view, where every morning I could have my breakfast and every night I could see the moon from it (which is something that I love doing).

Gulbenkian was a lovely apartment. But during my stay, I discovered that there are also some other apartments which are very pretty as well, like Campo Grande, Ultra mar, Principe Real etc. You may want to check this place out, if you are looking for a place to stay in Lisbon. This might be something for you!

Leros island

At the end of May, I got invited to join a group of journalists to a press trip to Leros island. The trip was organized by the Greek Tourism Board in Vienna in collaboration with Aegean Airlines. I’ve never been to Leros island before, so it was a great opportunity for me to explore one more Greek island.

Our stay was short though. We were there just for the weekend. Therefore, I don’t have plenty of photos to share with you! But I am happy at least that I can offer you an aerial perspective of view.

Nope, I didn’t buy a drone unfortunately. Not yet! From the Castle of Pandeli, you can enjoy a great view to the landscape, the sea and the villages of Leros

When I landed in Athens at the end of August, I knew I would spend a few days in the capital city to see my family and friends. But for the rest of my time there, I had no plans on where to go. All I knew was that August wasn’t exactly how I would have liked it to be. But then again, there is nobody to blame for this. It’s me who decided to go on vacation in September instead of August…but I have a bunch of good reasons for it.

Portes Mykonos

The perfect picture island

My initial thought was to visit Spetses and Hydra. But then somehow I remembered how much I miss the Cycladic white washed houses, so Mykonos won. It is after all the perfect picture island, and I knew I would never get bored. Apart from that, last year when I visited the island, I left with a feeling that 3 nights were not enough and made up my mind to come back soon again.

This year I stayed at Portes Mykonos Suites and Villas. Portes Mykonos had exactly what I expect to find in any hotel: exclusivity and privacy, along with a sense of peace and serenity. I especially loved the people working there who became my friends, room with walls all made of glass which served as the reception, late afternoon light, and amazing interior and exterior designs that reminded me of Dior Cruise fashion show in LA. What else do you need for the perfect holidays? Hope you get the chance to experience this beautiful property yourself.

La Mamounia Marrakesh

Back in the mid of September, I had the opportunity to travel to Morocco and spend three amazing nights and even more amazing days at La Mamounia, a palace-hotel in Marrakesh. It was actually a trip that my friend and I were planning for months; since last May to be more exact.

Our excitement and joy at the chance to stay at La Mamounia Marrakesh were huge. Before we got there, we were looking at all the hotel pictures on Instagram and we were dying to visit that dreamy place too.

For those reasons, we decided to visit Jardin Majorelle the day after for a second time, with the hope of finding less crowds and cooler temperatures. But it didn’t work out.

And then the day came when we arrived at a deluxe room overlooking the enchanting gardens of La Mamounia and the famous Koutoubia Mosque. This place had become my home away from home, a new world to discover.

We spent a large part of the day at La Mamounia Marrakesh. Our days began with a delicious breakfast by the pool. Later on, we snapped some photos here and there before we head to the Medina of Marrakesh.

For one of the evenings, we stayed at the hotel where we had dinner at the Moroccan restaurant in a romantic setting with candles. At the end of each day, we always took a stroll in the garden through the central alley, rose bushes, and orange trees. It helped us to digest our meal, and to let our minds wander before we go to sleep.

What a pity, time passes by so quickly when you are having fun. We would have loved to stay a little bit longer. But unfortunately we had to check out …

South Beach Miami (39)

So, this is my third blog post for my travel in Miami. I spent one day in South Beach Miami. I walked along the beach from the 23rd street to South Pointe Park Pier. It was one hour walk and back, each way. I encountered gulls on my way, saw a photo shooting happening in real time, talked to people, and gathered sea shells as souvenirs.

The day I took those photos I had to deal with strong wind. Unfortunately it was so windy and I couldn’t swim in the ocean because of the waves, although I have longed for it so much. And I got unexpected sunburn on my face and shoulders. I said unexpected because it was partly cloudy and I was so naive, believing that this cannot happen in October but in Miami it can. As for the photos, I didn’t have the complete control of the situation because the sunlight was very strong and I could hardly see the screen of my camera…But none of those was a problem as we were in South Beach Miami feeling good and that was all that matters! It’s so nice to be young and free and travel but you need a bit of luck to meet nice people on the way… I was lucky enough and met very nice people in Miami.♥
