HOW TO GO TO METEORA

2.10.18




Hello people... I am back from my 3 days  trip to Meteora.

Meteora is a place with one of the biggest natural rocks,  UNESCO HERITAGE from 1988, where 24 monasteries were built many years ago, where didn't exist streets or trucks to bring the materials up to the rocks... everything was transported via nets and  cables from the bottom of the rock until the top... where  the monks were lifted as well in small nets and pass from one rock to the other by cables... well something very impressive was made with just a few resources.

So we left Saturday morning from Paphos Airport and we flew to Thesssaloniki.
From there we rented a car for two days with Simply Rent Car, we opted for this one because we didn't have credit card.

TIP: Most of the rental cars ask for credit cards, so if you don't have one, make sure that you read properly the requirements, it happened to me already to not manage to rent a car because of that.


There are buses and Trains to Meteora, but the car gives you much more flexibility and you can visit another things if you want.
We stop to see this beautiful bridge in Tempi and then we drive to Kalabamka, were we passed the night.

Nowadays just 6 Monasteries still intact and open to be visited. All open at 9:00 and closed at 17:00, but they close at lunch time too... during the weekend are all open.
We just visited one,  the biggest one, because on Sunday it started to rain, has dark and cold and we didn't have umbrellas, thanks god ate least we had the car.
I didn't manage to have many nice photos... because it was impossible with that weather.


 One thing that I found strange, was the wild dogs in Meteora and in the village down, we saw quiet big dogs in the street, well they looked happy some of them, but I got  a bit sad to see them going around looking for food.  So we went to Lidl and bought some food to them.. so if you are going there...PLEASE DO THE SAME.... I think they will appreciate a lot.


We passed Monday in Thessaloniki... was my the second time there... the weather was amazing, so we had a long walk near to the sea and took this photos on the most famous "instagrammable" place.

This is a dress but at the time I wear it as skirt. This dress has many stories behind it AHAHAHA.
I bough it on Na-kd, if you want to see the original dress just click here.

MONACO, NICE AND CANNES

27.9.18


HELLOOOO....
So after visited PortoFino and Genova, we went to Monaco.
This is a small independent state, well known for the luxuries houses, cars and the Casino.

One thing that we forgot is that, it doesn't belong to Europe union, so you need to pay roaming and my internet stopped,  but my boyfriend we paid so much money on his phone... so yeah remember MOBILE DATA IS NOT INCLUDED on your pack.

Honestly I didn't see too many luxuries things, I found it very normal, but someone told me that the expensive things were near to the casino.

About the food, near to the palace, were many small restaurants and kiosks were you could buy things for normal prices.


We went up to see the Cathedral and the Prince's Palace of Monaco but we didn't go to the Casino, because it was on the other completely opposite side and we were with our cabin  bags, plus we were already in Ventimiglia going around before and we still need to go to Nice, so we decided to go straight to the train station that was near.

I saw that was a bus going around with destination to the Casino, so in case you are interest you know that there is a bus to go there from the Palace area.

By the way, the trip from Ventimiglia by train to Monaco is around 30 minutes , the same from Monaco to Nice, and we bought this tickets on the same day.

NICE


When we arrived to Nice we went straight away to our airbnb... super renovated cute studio 15 minutes walking to the city centre and near to the tram bus stop.
The good thing that I found out in Italy and France is that in every corner we had a Carrefour supermarket, so we were going there all the time to buy things and try to economise some euros.


This was the place were all the kids were playing, it had some small water fountains that were opening and closing all the time... and the kids there having some much fun... they would prefer to play there, instead of going to the sea that was 5 minutes walling from there.


 I was very surprised from Nice city... super beautiful city, with a nice sea side... we even manage to go to the beach on the next day for a while.
We just stayed on night but i wouldn't mind to stay one night more.


 The Russian Orthodox Cathedral is such a stunning monument.. I didn't go inside but I felt in love already just from the outside, like a dream palace

CANNES

The next day we left Nice and we took the train again to Cannes.
We stayed in the Ibis Budget Cannes Centre Villa, very nice and affordable hotel, near to train station and 10minutes walking to the train station.

I found Cannes more luxurious then Monaco.. I saw all the luxurious shops and the hotels were so beautiful too... kind of the same style of the sea side ones in Nice, and of course so expensive cars too.


Very nice thing that I found there, was this platforms on the sea with beach chairs... I think we should start to do something like that in Cyprus.


I night on this hotel would cost 500 euros in the most affordable room.


 And it couldn't miss a photo near to the red carpet in Cannes.
Hope that you like this post, and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to leave a comment down bellow.

PORTOFINO AND GENOVA

12.9.18


Hello babes... I came back from this holidays and after 4 days I went back to Portugal.
I went to Algarve, south of Portugal to see my parents and to attend a wedding of one of my university best friends. 

So talking about this trip, on the third day we went in direction to Portofino
We left Cinque Terre in the morning and we went by train to Santa Margherita Ligure, there is no direct train to Portofino, and it takes around one hour and half more less.
Santa Margherita Ligure is a small town near to the sea were we went for a coffee before we went to Portofino.



There are bus stops everywhere along the road from Santa Margherite to Portofino, the bus cost 2.30 (I believe), but honestly is not so far to go walking until there,and there is a walk path between them.
 The view is so worth it, on the bus you can't enjoy it or take any photos. 
We just walk a bit, because we were with our cabin bags and was midday time.
It is a nice place as well to go to the beach, but we didn't wear or swimsuits.



Portofino is a small village... honestly I thought that would be more beautiful and something more special, but is not.
We didn't manage again to go up until the castle because of ours bags, but we manage to take some nice photos on the small port.


We took again the train from Santa Margherita Ligure to Genova to sleep there.
We stay two nights in Hotel Nologo, near to train station, like 5 minutes walking, and near to the city centre, super modern and affordable, with a terrace with Jacuzzi.


The city is full of monuments and beautiful churches... but I found it a bit empty for such a popular city, maybe because we went there after the bridge fell.


This was taken on the Van Gogh exhibition, it was super cool because they were passing in this big screen his paintings and we manage to take some nice shots and learn a bit more about his life.


This last photo is from the last city in Italy that we stop before we went to Monaco, called Ventimiglia.
There wasn't direct train from Italy to France, so here was the last city where we need to change so as I didn't have tickets booked from there to Monaco, just from Genova to Ventimiglia, we went around just for a quick coffee and see the little city.
Indeed it had more people then in Genova.

Soon I will share here some post from France coast.
