Those of you who follow me on Instagram probably know that I went on a small trip to Nafplio last week. Just a small getaway to let off steam and have fun with friends. It was amazing! Nafplio was actually the first capital of Greece and, since it is so close to Athens, I've been there many times. But I love this place so much, I never get bored of it. It's a city near the sea, with cute little alleys and important history. Most of these photos were taken from the castle Palamidi, which has an amazing view of the entire city and the sea. As I've said before, I am deeply in love with the sea. I truly believe that us Greeks can't live away from the blue. It's in the sky, in the sea, in our flag, inside every single one of us. Did you know it's believed that the colors of the greek flag come from the blue of the sky and the sea and the white of the waves? I don't know if everyone here loves the sea as much as I do, but I know that if I never saw it again I would be miserable. I consider myself blessed I have the chance to live in such a wonderful country and visit all these amazing beautiful places. I may be a big-city girl to the bone, but I have our blue waters deep inside my heart. Enough with that, I'll just let you enjoy the beautiful city of Nafplio, hoping that one day you'll go visit it, if you haven't already.
What do you think of these photos? Have you ever been to Nafplio? Please leave a comment to let me know what you think.

Are you ready for a trip to Ancient Greece? Back when art, science, philosophy and democracy created the perfect combination... These photos are from the actual ruins in the center of Athens. The old market, the temples and the houses, all still there taking us ages ago. It is truly amazing the feeling you get when you visit places like that, even if you've been there many times before. You just feel connected with the glory of the past, with the great philosophers and politicians. You can also see some Christian monuments being there in such harmony with the environment. It's really surprising for many people to discover that right in the center of the big city full of traffic and modern problems, still lays this peaceful, monumental place. How can someone not love their city when it consists of  so many hidden treasures? 
I chose to display at the end, a photo of my awesome friend(and photographer!) who helped me make some amazing shots that I'm going to show you on my next post. Don't you just love her Toms?
Have you ever been in Athens? If yes what did you think of it?
