Spetses: international chanting in the zen garden of Argosaronikos

There are just some destinations that simply remind you that the essence of happiness lies in the “aller-retour”, more specifically – in the silence situated in the back of the moon and in the scarlet sun.

Travel around the world. Most of the times, meet and greet comes with a big smile.

Ρίλα: highlands & spring σλάλομ στις κορυφές των Βαλκανίων

Τα ταξίδια διαρκούν για πάντα, χωρίς αναμνήσεις προκάτ. Εδώ τίποτα δεν σε κάνει να θες να έρθει η άνοιξη και να φύγει ξαφνικά ο χειμώνας γιατί, πολύ απλά, έχουν μάθει να ζουν μαζί για καιρό, ανασυνθέτοντας το fade out των εποχών, που έχουμε ξεχάσει.
