my weekend in pictures: Andros (revisited)

31 Jul

Thanks to the greatest husband alive (in a slightly exaggerated sense) and my mother in law who made it happen, I managed to relax, let myself go, unwind & immensely enjoy the time I had with my sister on Andros last weekend.

I recharged my batteries (it always surprises me how ridiculously fast they manage to die on me once I return to everyday normal life), spend some uninterrupted quality time with my sis, met a few new interesting people & laughed a lot (thanks to my dear friend N. who managed to return to her island just in time for the opening of the exhibition).

Here are some of the pictures I took over the weekend. Enjoy.

I was very tempted to jump of the cliff, but I am not eleventeen anymore


the return

If you ever have the luxury chance to get the hell away from everyone and everything, even if it is just for a couple of days, DO IT. I promise you it will be A BREATH OF FRESH AIR!

Until next time

    Tatu mou, although I truly understand the power of a 2 day break, I really feel the need to comment on Alex’s paintings….
    They are simply stunning!!
    Congratulations on her talent, and congratulations on your support to her!

    Your pictures are stunning as are both of you – that sunset, the ‘blue’ oh how lucky you are to have visited and unwound and enjoyed. Your sister’s paintings are remarkable and yes from your previous posts on her, she is one very talented lady. You are truly blessed to have such a good relationship with her. Welcome back darling. xx

    Oh T, *gasp* the Island is beautiful and your sisters’s work is stunning. I love the photo of the two of you together. I am so happy you were able to go, unwind and recharge. You know how I feel about that, we mothers need it so, so much. I want to come back to Greece, there is so much more to see. Lovely to have you back.
