Nafplion, Greece

     As my first travel adventure documentation I have chosen to share my experience from beautiful Greece, also because           it sets the mood for the upcoming summer season.I was there to visit a friend and stayed for a weak, but it was more than enough to make me appreciate the history, food and one of the cutest secluded beaches you probably did not even know exist. Well thats why I am here-to share so that You guys can go and hopefully enjoy it too.
Needles to say the weather there does not disappoint. The sea water was so warm I literally spend hours looking for all sorts of sea shells and rocks to take back home( one of my little weird quirks) also because the waters were so crystal clear.

Exploring the charming little pathways of Nafplio was followed by the wonderful scent of Jasmine mixed with the sea breeze.

Yes, it is a small town . Probably nothing the size you have been use to but that just makes it easier to explore by foot and remembering easier your routes, for example to the nearest beach or favourite breakfast place.

Don't forget to honour the cultural differences in the Typical Architecture. I personally love taking an evidence and comparing after my trips.

I think this pretty much captures the mood of the place. And for my surprise this beautiful building just next to the sea is in fact abandoned. Sadly indeed, considering its location and potential to bring some tourists around. Which the town can use to flourish even more.

So after almost an hour trek up the hill, through the most green path there is , we have riches the end of it and oh, what an end the locals chose. It is almost as if you are climbing the stairway to heaven ... they chose to ended with a Church. How idyllic and meaningful. Lovely to see people still cherish tradition and culture!

If you are a cactus lover but don't fancy leaving the sea  views behind for a desert like scenery , well, this is definitely a place you should visit. They are everywhere and I would dare to say I was intimidated by the bushy amount of needles poking through every corner. That didn't stop me to try take a piece for a souvenir. I even had this crazy idea that if I managed get as much as I could I could probably mix up some healthy potion and splash it on my face as my face cream was just finishing.

And if you decide you need to go with your significant other, I suggest you stick around to see the sunset on the sea side just before the rocky mountain . Firstly, because there is a beautiful Castle resting on an island ( that you could visit with a boat by the way) Secondly, because all the restaurants are just few metres away and last but not least ... The  View!
