You know we love spending our weekends abroad. It’s one of the perks of living in Europe: in a couple of hours you can be enjoying a cocktail overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, skiing or learnin ancient history in one of its multiple archaeological sites. For us, Europe has it all. But sometimes can be overwhelming. So many destinations, so little time. Here you have a few ideas to help you decide your next weekend getaway: If you want to come back home with sunkissed skin… Comporta: Atlantic charm, uncrowded golden sand, surf, fields of rice and delicious grilled fish at Ilha do Arroz. No better place to stay than Sublime Comporta. Mykonos: quiet days and long fun nights. Wonderful sunsets sipping cocktails at Cafe Veranda, delightful afternoons of shopping, mornings at the beach and daytrips to Delos. Book a room at Hotel San Giorgio. If you want a city break… Antwerp: fashion and design, excellent concept stores, bicycles, diamonds and chocolate. Stay at Hotel Julien and don’t forget to try the best frites at Frituur No …
This was a curious parking lot in Mykonos. There was no problem of space and the price per hour seemed really cheap.
Mykonos is just wonderful. We spent six days going from beach to beach, no make up, no heels, no rush, no clock… it was all about great food, wonderful landscapes and kind people. Since it was already October the island was almost deserted: perfection.
… And back to our greek adventures! We had spent a wonderful time in Athens, but we had a wedding to attend, so we took a train and headed north. We were so excited! Greek weddings are so famous that we couldn’t wait to get to the small village in the middle of nowhere where the wedding was taking place. We spent 4 hours in a very nice train, although when we first saw it we thought it was going to be awful! Greek trains are like German or Italian trains: not very nice on the outside but quite comfortable on the inside! This is a picture of the landscape through the train window.
