We’re going to Greece!

We’re going to Greece! 
(was the repetition necessary? Yes it was)

I’ve never been and have been considering it for a while. However family trips are usually aimed further away and personal trips are usually aimed at cheaper locations with some kind of support (a person who lives there and will provide accommodation, some special offer that we found.. ).. This year I worked all summer (YES! All summer! In scorching hot Madrid!) and we decided to go somewhere at the end of September. Well, wouldn’t you know… Greece is real cheap this time of year!
So, hoping for warm weather, we’re off. This is what I’m expecting:


blue rooftops, crystal clear calm (no waves please) warm jellyfish-less water, light tasty food, strong weather-challenged red wine, singing greeks (ok, MammaMia and My BFG wedding definitely left something in my mind) (Oh! Just noticed… “BFG” is for “Big Fat Greek” not “Big Friendly Giant”! Hello Roald Dahl!), soft red black or white sand and few stones, a volcano (extinct, submerged or not), donkeys, cliffs, blue skies, white houses, friendly neighbours. Anything missing? Ah, maybe a mandolin or two. Oh, and a handful of tortoises of course! Hey, I’m not asking for much, right!? I’ll let you know what I really found..when we return.



About Full Of Daisies

I am permanently in love. Things I like: purple, pasta, silk, autumn, the smell of mould, candles, cachi, having friends, water, new things, rice, eggs (all eggs!), fresh grass, olive trees, shiny things, glitter, hanging objects, windcatchers, wind, couscous, wasabi, carnivores, presents, snow, leaves, orchids, feathers, cappelletti, meat, fruit (all fruit), more del gelso (Morus alba L.), pigs, candles, christmas, polenta fritta!, separating egg whites from yokes in my hands, cartoons, dragons, the ocean, nudibranchi, cows, mercury (the metal), cosmos (the flowers), thunderstorms, Mika, turtles, acquariums, green and blue (mixed), siccamores, spring, snails, 24, porc with a sweet sauce (apple, cranberry, tomatoes jam), looking at a swimming pool upsidedown and underwater, english accent, open-minded people, driving, blue skies, checkered tablecloths, butterflies, books and cartoons in rhyme, painting eggs, the star-shadows that football players have, silver, laughing, Vivaldi, bells and chimes, white and purple, creating. Complete Happiness: Early morning. Sun, with a breeze; a pond with water lilies. A house, with a garden, full of plants. A vegetable patch, lemon, orange and mandarin trees. Cosmos everywhere. Birds in the trees; a tortoise eating the salad from the vegetable patch; a mammal (I couldn’t decide which one would make me happier) close by. No houses for as far as the eye can see. Me, a man that loves me and that I love. Friends coming over for a lunch that I have to prepare, and have all the ingredients for all ready in the kitchen.
