To travel is to take a journey into yourself

My bustrip from Hotel Arion to Pythagorion was a nice experience. It was really cheap and convenient way to travel from Kokkari to Pythagorion. At night I took a taxi which felt nice and safe. He drived properly and we had a nice conversation in English. 

I have new plans with my husband for summer 2017 in Samos! 

Greetings, Tuija

Plants that climb towards gates and walls make the nature a part of buildings. Lovely!

the calming voice of Aegean Sea.

Three months ago 14.9.2016

Three months ago I was walking on the beach after a gourgeous breakfast at Arion Hotel near Kokkari. It was an exiting adventure to explore the North coast of Samos island as the winner of the Photo Contest

It was amazing to have the freedom to do what I want. I had a nice walk up the hill and took beautiful pictures and captured the wonderful view into my mind. 

In the evening at my hotel I enjoyed a perfect vegetarian dinner made specially for me. Stuffed eggplant and different kind of salads tasted delicious. I felt very lucky!

Happy memories, Tuija

Aelio Bistro Cafe

In the village of Kokkari you can find this colourful bistro-cafe. It was nice to enjoy there a tasty traditional dinner with my friend Argiro. I'm sure that this is one of the places where I want to return again and again. 

The decoration is amazing and individual. Lovely!

Best wishes, Tuija

Tsamadou Beach

September, sun, sea ... warm water, relaxing place

This beach is on the North side of Samos island. Great place for a swim. It's good to use swimming shoes. 

Sunny memories! Tuija

Pictorial places

The lovely light and the harmony of colours make me feel so good in Samos island. White, blue and green are powerful. It's my hobby to capture and share these moments for you. 

I hope you enjoy! Tuija

Hamam -towel 2thelittlestore

Limnionas is a little village in Samos west of Votsalakia. 

The beach consists of pebbles and sand, sun beds and umbrellas are available for rent. There is a nice tavern on the beach.
Gourgeous place. I'm looking forward  to visit there again next summer. Hope for a longer stay. 
Great memories, Tuija

Christmas eating

It's time to make some plans for our Christmas dinner. A couple of days it's nice to eat traditional Finnish dishes but after that I'd love to eat something like these greek salads and stuffed tomatoes or dolmades with tzatsiki.
