Secret passages, cobblestone streets, lots of steps & endless white!

In the next few days & posts I'll be taking you on a ride with me - even if just virtual for now - to a place I love & was so glad to be at again during May

Yachts, Sunsets & inner Calmness πŸ”Ή | 24. 05. 2017 |
When the Weather "opens" & the days are longer, frequenting the Marina of Flisvos when in Athens is something I love.

It is a newly & well built place with Coffee shops, Restaurants & Yacht Companies hosted in terracotta painted, Neoclassical inspired buildings that remind me lots of Lisbon's air.
Being a lover of this City & Portugal in general, this fills me with wonderful memories of trips there, while currently residing in my country of Origin
|
Getting there from Apart_44 is in itself an act of #mindfulness & #theartofslowliving.

A half an hour walk - in a relaxed pace - down the beach & around Glyfada's Golf, then hopping on a Tram & getting off at Flisvos - a station earlier - so that approaching the Marina while walking through the beautiful & green park of Flisvos takes place
|
The Marina combines a very lively vibe with the Calmness of being surrounded by the Sea & pretty Yachts.
Young people, families & older people alike are not only sitting at the shops mentioned, but are also strolling the Marina with a snack or ice cream in hand.
Others are sitting in the well taken care off grass areas or along the promenade facing the resting Yachts.
Bicycles are aloud though can rather not be comfortably ridden at the busy pedestrian area, dogs are welcome & Wifi is free all over.
A place to not miss if you are visiting Athens!

Hello from this beautiful & ever charming old Lady (quite ancient in fact) & myself! πŸ‘‹πŸ”ΉπŸŒΏπŸ”ΉπŸŒ²πŸ”Ή
| 23. 05. 2017 |
|
The Acropolis under blue Skies & surrounded by this greenery certainly make for my favourite scenery when down town in Athens for some cultural taste, leaving the southern coastal suburban surroundings of my Summer Home in Glyfada Golf area behind
|
I just wanted to pop in, say hello & see how you are all doing, while I've taken a little Spring break from posting & being much on line the last 4 weeks.

I'll be soon sharing some of my favourite moments & experiences of these weeks, while step by step hopping on the IG train, catching up with you & following along your streams again.

Till then, my warmest wishes & a very fine day & week ahead to you all!

Athens in Spring πŸŒΏπŸ”ΉπŸ’™πŸ”ΉπŸŒΏ | 23. 04. 2017 |

Visiting Athens in Spring can be delightful.
It is still not crowded, the temperatures are mostly around 20 degrees Celsius, the Sun is warm & almost ever present, the Skies deeply blue & the atmosphere clear & fresh resulting from the Winds coming from the Sea & the mountains alike
|
When visiting the Acropolis & the Acropolis museum, do take also some time strolling the streets & alleys vertical to & around the main Pedestrian Street, Dionisiou Areopajitou
|
They are packed with beautiful & well preserved buildings like this one (for the architecture lovers) there is almost zero vehicle movement, no crowds, with the streets being aligned with gigantic trees, which will soon be covering much of the view up to the pretty architectural details
|
Happy Sunday everyone!
Hope you are spending it mighty fine!

Are you tired of my Athenian Architecture Series, yet?
Just another building spotted on my walk while heading to the Hill where the National Observatory ist.
|
One thing to notice about Neoclassical Greek Architecture is the fact that it is apparently simplistic & "reduced",
however always rich in the most beautiful details, as a means of livening up & highlighting otherwise simple Lines
|
Lines which are combined with elegant Curves in a way that, in my Eyes & Perception, is truly the outcome of an Exercise in Balance successfully & perfectly executed
|
Symmetry.
Plasticity.
Elements of "Surprise", such as the beautiful decorative Details.

Hach. I guess I love to talk about Architecture & Interior Design.
Then again, also about Philosophy, Psychology, the Arts... The BEST of all though, is to experience all of these first hand.
For this reason, when I am somewhere "diving" into experiences of any kind,
I rarely post on the spot, even though in a way IG was originally meant for something like that.

In a World where constant posting & sharing appears to have become a "normality", I just love to be, to do, to digest & then at some point share. And you, dear ones?

Life is better with Cake, non? πŸ˜‰
| 22. 04. 2017 |

Happy Saturday everyone!
While ready to make a delicious brunch 🍳 with fresh produce brought from the farmer's market (eggs & avocado & walnut bread as basic ingredients) here is a dessert I'd love to accompany my cup of tea or coffee.
This delicious Lemon Pie with egg whites, which though will currently not, as this is a pic that somehow remained unshared.
Better late than never, may I say!
|
Enjoy your weekends darlings!
Love & good vibes your ways!

Happy Friday wishes ~ πŸ”ΉπŸ’™πŸ”Ή | 21. 04. 2017 |

No blue skies currently here today, therefore a picture portraying them, featuring a detail from one of the buildings in the previous picture:

L i g h t & s h a d o w s ~
Charming afternoon light & shadows of elegant details curved from iron.

p.s: this alley is close to the geotagged place.

Festive, springy, joyful, lighthearted Athens ready to receive you with Love & Appreciation ~ πŸ”ΉπŸŒΏπŸ”ΉπŸ’™πŸ”ΉπŸŒΏπŸ”Ή
|
A building I love for it features typical Greek Neoclassical Simplicity, rich in discrete & delicate details though, with a huge emphasis on Plasticity & Geometry as always.

Posting & "running" currently, wishing you all lovely afternoons ahead middle of this Week!
The Weather is delightful here with somehow strong, fresh Winds.

Good morning 🌳 | 19. 04. 2017 |

I woke up early (as usual) & while taking a look around me from the various windows of my Summer Home Apart 44, I shed a tear, both from Happiness that my Family has managed to stay strong together through difficulties & from being Homesick & missing Germany
|
I realised that this intense longing to return to the grounds that have become my beloved Home - mein Geliebtes Zuhause - is serving as the biggest Heart opener & Mindfulness Living agent that I would have ever so far imagined through my whole Life.

Wherever the right place will be & on the right, divine timing, I just cannot wait to set up my German Home again & be posting from there.

In the meantime, I have decided to embrace Athens like I have never done before in my whole Life.
And for that, I have my Life in Germany to thank.
Ich vermisse Dich so sehr Deutschland mein beliebtes Land πŸ’™

I am wishing you all a wonderful, blessed in all ways day!

When walking the Streets of Athens in Spring, the Ancient Agora to the right, the Acropolis to the depth forward, while looking up to Trees, which will soon be providing their Cooling Shade to tourists & locals alike.
