It has been an odd summer this year in Rome and I think we made the right choice going to Greece amd enjoying the sun. It seems it will never set for a long time because the first rays of sun and the warmth are all at one replaced by rainy days and bulky clouds. I really need some sun to feel in the right mood. I am a Mediterranean girl, right? It is such a necessary element for my humour that I am just coveting right now. This is why I chose this wonderful outdoor in Capri, the Isle "par excellence". Hope you enjoy the virtual view just as I am doing right now.

Dear friends! As promised hereI am with some pictures of the spellbinding island of Zakynthos, one of the three biggest Ionian Greek Islands. We took a direct flight from Rome which was extremely confortable for us being two adults and a kid of almost 4, to reach our destination. We spent our week of vacation in the Kalamaki beach area, just 15 minutes from the center of the town. Zakynthos has an ancient history, very much linked and intertwined to Venice and Europe in general. The people of Zakynthos are so welcoming, warm and super friendly with foreigners. As me and my family are totally in love with this wonderful spot of the Ionian sea we will for sure go back and spend some more weeks next year, hopefully. Today's post is dedicated to some design/architectural places I captured with my Iphone. They certainly are not top quality shots, but they give you an idea of the weather we found, of the beauty and the taste of the people and the colors of nature in July. Have a great time!
Where we stayed, just two minutes walk from the wonderful Kalamaki beach.
At night we ordered some great cocktails. Great mojitos and cosmopolitans!
This is a neoclassic façade of one of the beautiful hotels.
This bar was just two steps ahead from our hotel. Never been there but I loved the way it was refurbished. It was certainly very relaxing, I heard good music (mainly soft jazz) coming and those Blue and white hues captured my attention and you know that I love that combo.
This was the Saint Dionysios Church named after the Saint's name.
Typical Greek house spotted in the town of Zante.
This was a very colorful bar in the main commercial street of the city.

Hello dears! I am back, full of nostalgia for that wonderful place and the spellbinding Greek coast. I am popping in with a shoot of the coast just to say hello and promise to give you a thorough account of my Greek Holiday on the Zakynthos isle.
