Vacation days may be over, but at least I have tons of photos and videos to remember them by. This was the first actual vacations I had in years. We booked our vacations no more than 1-2 weeks before, as it was a “last minute” decision. We spent some days thinking whether on not we should do it, but I’m so glad we finally decided to go. It was one of the best vacations we had. We visited Chios island, where my father was born and raised, and we toured the island by car. It wasn’t my first time there, but it was T.’s, and even though it was also tiring from all the walking and driving (for him), it was really nice. We shot my look of the day, at the chapel of Agios Isidoros, a few kilometers north of the city of Chios. It’s such a picturesque place; I wanted to visit it since the first time I show photos of it. So of course I had to take photos there. My outfit might be casual, but the location is everything. Don’t you think?
Day 6 begun with a walk to Daskalopetra, which was in the same area as our hotel. Just a few meters away from our hotel was Daskalopetra, or Homer’s Rock, one of the island’s best known monuments. It is considered to be the place where Homer used to teach his students.
I’m finally back from my vacation to Chalkidiki, but I still have a few posts to share with you from my trip to Chios. Despite the wedding, and the preparations, we still found enough time to tour the island as much as we could. Day 5 in Chios was dedicated to yet another “road trip”, this time visiting, the church of St.Markella, the villages of Anavatos and Avgonima and finally Nea Moni (New Monastery).
The day after the wedding, my mom promised to take me to the place I spotted at Day 1, to take my outfit photos, just before we started our next trip to the nearby villages. It was a very cute and picturesque marina very close to our hotel. I really liked this place, and I wanted it to be one of the locations I used for my outfit photos. The wind was blowing like crazy, but that didn’t stop me from wearing my strapless dress, and pose for photos.
