View from above – Palamidi fortress

15 November, 2011

Hello my lovely readers! How is everyone? Today I have to show you one more post with photos of my trip to Nafplio (yes, you’re going to see a few more posts about it), and more specifically from the fortress of Palamidi. On my first post about my trip, I shared with you some of the pics I took from the fortress. It’s on a really high hill, and it has an amazing view. You can either climb its 857 steps from the town to the fortress (locals say it’s 999 steps), or you can go straight to the top, by car. I chose the 2nd way, as I’ve already climbed it once, many years ago. Moreover, there are hundreds more steps inside the fortress.

Magnificent view of the fortress’ walls and the whole city

The day was really cloudy, and unfortunately really windy, that’s why I was wearing my jacket in most of the pics. So this is not really an outfit post, but a way to show you some pics of the day. Plus, I was wearing almost the same outfit as the previous day, with small alterations.

Trying to keep my hair in place for the pic, cause they were flying all over my head.

Breathtaking view of the sea, from Palamidi

One more attempt to open the jacket to take some proper pictures. It was really cold!

Photographing my photographer
T., say cheese for the camera! 🙂
Here he is! My patient photographer/boyfriend…He did a really good job with the camera.
If only the weather wasn’t so cloudy and windy.

Finally found an elastic band to catch my hair, instead of putting it inside my jacket.

Sarah Lawrence jacket, H&M striped sweater (previously seen here), Zara top underneath it, Sarah Lawrence leggings, local shop boots (Largenti), Michael Kors watch (unfortunately not pictured, under the jacket), new H&M necklace, D&G bag, and Donna Karan sunglasses.

Detail of the necklace (unfortunately it’s backwards, didn’t see it on time).

And one last goodbye pic!

Hope you liked my pictures and my outfit. I promise better pics in my next posts from Nafplio (it was warm and sunny the next days!).

Till next time have a fantastic week, and don’t forget to follow my blog!

The sooner I’ll get enough followers, the sooner I’ll host a giveaway!

  3. Oh, finally I have time to write – and internet as well (I didn’t really have yesterday – could read, but not write)! I spent most of the day yesterday sleeping… recovering…!
    As usual, what I tell you is what it is (believe me!): you totally look like a young Hollywood star walking and being “caught” by paparazzi! Your style is great, very classy, very sophisticated, and not showing off! Really beautiful! I loooove those boots!
    And the landscape? Fabulous! Reminded me of a picture I painted, it was Parga. The fortress is very nice, but almost 1000 steps? Only for marathon fit ones – I am certainly not!
    Oh, now I’m looking forward to seeing your next pictures, and really willing to go to Nafplio! Thanks for showing these pictures, you are doing a great service for the towns there! Really artistic views!
    Filakia pollaaaaaa! (Will go to a Mall now, but I’m still so tired!)

    • Thank you so much sweety! I read your posts too tonight. I’m so tired, I have to get up really early (for me!), so I’m replying to these comments and going to sleep. We must have a huge time difference now, but it’s ok.
      Your comments are always the best, and you give me the most amazing compliments. Thank you! 🙂
      I’ve never been to Parga, but I would love to. My mom said it’s an amazing place. Yes, it has almost 1000 steps to get inside, but you can also go straight to the top by car, as I wrote. And that’s what we did. Both times we went there these last 2 years. To see the view and take photos. I knew I had to go back. Wish the weather was better to take better photos of the fortress, but I was freezing.
      If you come to Greece in the future, and be able to stay for about 2 weeks, I would love to take you there too. hehe. It’s about a 8-10 hour drive from my town though.
      I’m sure you’re going to love the next 2 posts. I loved the photos. I was so wishing that the results would be as amazing as I thought they would be when we were shooting the photos, and I think they are. 🙂
      I’m doing a great service to these towns. They should pay me, right? hehe I wish! To be paid to travel and take pictures, or even paid to buy clothes and shoes. It can happen. I’ll stay positive.
      See you soon! Filakia polla! 🙂

  4. Γεια σου καλή μου!

    Χίλια συγγνώμη που εξαφανίστηκα!!! Η μετακόμισή μου ήταν/ είναι μέσα στην ταλαιπωρία!!! Τώρα είμαι για λίγες μέρες Θεσσαλονίκη – ναι σωστά μάντεψες! – για κάποιες δουλίτσες και θα ξαναφύγω!!
    Αχ Ναύπλιο! Είμαι εντελώς ερωτευμένη με αυτή την πόλη, τελευταία φορά πήγα το προηγούμενο καλοκαίρι! Τα έχω ανέβει αυτά τα σκαλιά!!:D

    Ελπίζω να είσαι καλά! (οι μπαλαρίνες είναι 250ευρώ)
