Summer is officially gone. Hello cold weather! It was good while it lasted, but fall is here! Fresh and new!
We even had a couple of rainstorms with lots of thunders and lightnings. One thunderbolt fell really close to our apartment (scary) and as a result we have a dead modem... We know it's from that rainstorm, cause the same thing happened to our neighbors and they also have to buy a new modem, as well as a new computer. We still don't have a connection after a week (apparently this happened to many people around Greece)... I borrowed an old modem from our friend Georgia (thank you Georgia) just to check how you guys are doing!
So let me share a summer day with you, just to keep the memories fresh! I've never mentioned that my dad is a boat captain (that's his job) and he owns a small fishing boat! So me and G. went for a ride!
|Daddy and me|
When I was young we used to do that very often! We also used it for fishing! Almost every weekend! Yes, I know how to fish with many different ways. (useless talent no. 83)!
|Leaving Nafplio port|
|A closer view of Bourtzi castle, by the port entrance|
|The lighthouse, famous first date place!|
The day was windy and the trip was sooo bumpy, but fun!! My hat fell in the water, but we saved it! It is a hat from France after all, I couldn't leave it to drown. A special gift from my mother's best friend Anna! (snatched immediately).
We then found a safe-from-the-wind beach and took a dive! I lost a contact lense! Oh.. the joys of nature!
|See the castle wall around the cliff?|
|See the people on top of the wall?|
We swam right below Akronafplia castle. It was so amazing! Thanks for the ride dad!
|Love thy cellulite!!|
Back to present day: I found a job! I now work in a small tavern/bar (or tsipouradiko in greek). I cook and serve (it's not a big place) which means that I'm running around like a crazy person most of the times... I must have lost a couple of kilos in a week and the girl who worked there before me, lost 18 kg in 4 months. Working in Greece is getting kind of ridiculously hard, you know. On a happy note, maybe my next career is in modelling, haha! But more on that... later!
Let's just focus on the lovely summer memories, shall we?
