Last days in Lefkada

This morning, on my way to the office I was thinking on how much money I have spent this year on holidays, and the amount is significant. I could have invested that money in material things, such as a car (my mom would have been very happy), but I choose to invest in experiences. Yeah.. the future might not be so bright, but I will handle it at the proper time. Meanwhile, some words about the last days in Lefkada.
In my previous post I was describing some stunning beaches we've explored. I will continue with another one, the most adventurous to get to and wildest by far. Let me present, Milos beach. Do not be fooled by Google Maps directions. To get to that beach you need to go to  Agios Nikitas, park the car and get ready for adventure.

 Challange #1: climb the stairs

 
Challange #2: when you finish with the stairs, you will end up on a mountain trail.


Keep going! On your right you will see Agios Nikitas beach.
You're not there yet.

And voila! The beach. Now you have to descend. I do not have pictures with the stairs. And challange #3: climb back those stairs!


It was worth the effort to get there!

Some extra tips:
- bring an umbrella
- bring water supplies with you
- stay away from the cliffs, they are very unstable 
- on the left side is the nudist's beach
Beside this, we went to another beach, Pefkoulia. Compared to the other ones, it's ordinary. No difficulties to get there.

And in the last two days I chose to stay in Vasiliki to relax and enjoy the time left. 
Few words about the food I've tried:
- grilled feta cheese is actually feta cheese in the oven (at least that's what I've got when I've ordered this plate)
- Ekmek dessert - I stopped eating sugar but I couldn't resist the temptation
This is it! The best way to combat the depression after an awesome holiday is to plan/go in the next holiday, and that's what I'm doing (it happened to have planned another adventure right after this one)!
Meow!

Bustling Ho Chi Minh City & tranquil Mekong Delta

  My 3 weeks itinerary through Vietnam ends in Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) or Saigon (as the locals know it). I had 2 days and a half to spend here. Here I met again with Leroy, who got to the city one day before me and left one day before I. From Mui Ne I took another bus to reach the big city. As I mentioned before, buses are the most convenient way to travel. If you arrange it through your hotel/hostel the bus will come and pick you up from there. Usually I prefer traveling by train because I can read and stretch my legs whenever I want, but during my stay in Vietnam I got to enjoy the conversations that you can have in the bus. On the bus to HCMC I met a woman who is teaching English to staff of a resort in Mui Ne. She wasn't a teacher but she did this for the past years, traveling around and teaching locals basic English. She was finding these opportunities through  https://www.workaway.info/ , a website who connects travellers who like to travel and do volunteer work in the place

Croatia: Dreamy Northern Dalmatia

We spent the last days of our holiday exploring the classic Dalmatian cocktail of historic towns, jewel-like waters, rugged limestone mountains, gorgeous climate and Mediterranean cuisine of the Northern Dalmatia. Plitvice Lakes In order to have a full day to spend exploring Plitvice Lakes we stayed overnight in the area. It was so quiet and peaceful there! I wish we could have stayed more days to enjoy that serenity state of the place. Being in some way a remote place it wasn't easy to find a restaurant to have dinner, but when we did it was the best. Cevapi, traditional grilled minced meat with ajvar (roasted red peppers sauce) I don't have a sweet tooth but I enjoy trying local deserts. Traditional strudel with cherries - a touch of chocolate makes this simple desert in a delicacy  Morning coffee with a view Love is in the air! From the accommodation we had 15-20 minutes drive to the Entrance 1 of the park. We have researched which trails to take and the best views are start

Stories from Hamburg

Lately I've heard a lot about Hamburg, how awesome it is and I was curious to see it with my own eyes. Being in Berlin these days, was the perfect moment to do it. I bought train tickets and here I am in a train going to Hamburg. With my book, enjoying a 2h train ride  The weather was not favorable to me, but I still have all my fingers. I must say, the rainy day enhanced the colors of this city. I was not kidding about the cold It took me a few time to get used with the temperature, but after that I forgot it was cold. I had set in mind to see the canals. I came here for that. I read some articles about this and I was impressed. It's said that it has more than Venice or Amsterdam. From what I've seen, it looks a lot with both of them, but on a different scale. If in the two cities mentioned the buildings are not so tall, here we find massive constructions. #wanderlust #urbanphotography #enthusiastictraveller A post shared by Madalina G. (@gmadalina92)
