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!

Kasteel de Haar - a luxurious castle

During the rainy days and with the current restrictions, my only consolation is writing about magical places I discovered in the past months in Netherlands. The subject of this post is De Haar Castle, a place rich in stories!  The joy of exploring this flamboyant castle De Haar is the largest castle in the Netherlands, once the private residence of the Van Zuylen family, whose descendants still stay there yearly. In the last century, the castle also frequently hosted members of the international jet set with their lavish lifestyle; from Coco Chanel to Roger Moore, they too left their mark on the sumptuous rooms of the most opulent spot in Utrecht. I visited the castle a couple of weeks ago, together with my dearest friend, Ioana, and it was a lovely Sunday, even with some warm sunshine!  This year I bought  Museumkaart  which allows free entrance to about 400 museums in the Netherlands, De Haar Castle included! Despite the months when the museums were/are closed, I got to use it a coup

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)

Zaanse Schans - Dutch history on the river Zaan

 It's been a while since my last post in March. Despite the pandemic, in May - June, when the restrictions loosened up, I started to go on short trips in Netherlands to explore the nature and iconic places, such Zaanse Schans. You may wonder why I waited so long to visit this place. Well, I've never been a big fan of crowded places, and according to the statistics, Zaanse Schans attracts nearly a million visitors per year and it's one of the Netherlands' best loved attractions. I seized the moment and when I visited the place it was almost deserted, for my own content. Additionally, I did a return journey with my bicycle! From Amsterdam Oost (where I live), is approximatively 20km one way. The route includes a ferry. I took the ferry from Veer Hempontplein because I stopped in West to surprise my friend with a delicious cheesecake that I baked the night before. And also this route went through Zaandam! I had to stop to capture this Who let the ducks out! This is not the
