To celebrate turning yet another year older, I spent the weekend in Agistri.

To celebrate/commiserate turning yet another year older, I booked a short getaway to the nearby island of Agistri.

Agistri is a small island just a short ferry ride from Piraeus, and along with a few friends, the plan was to catch an early morning ferry and spend the day at the beach. Except things didn't quite work out and my friends missed the ferry, so instead it was just The Boyfriend and I (not that that's a bad thing!)

Although the summer holiday I had in the UK was surprisingly warm and sunshiny, the need to have a short getaway in Greece while it's still summer had to happen. The Boyfriend and I decided to venture somewhere near(ish)by, opting for a base in Porto Heli with a couple of day trips.

My lovely friend [personal profile] cookwitch recently came to visit me. I do love having friends visit, as I am reminded of the beauty and culture of my adopted home town. We were quite fortunate that the days were wonderfully clear and sunny, so we spent much of our time sitting in the ancient sites, admiring the views and enjoying the sunshine on our faces. This is the life.

Due to starting my own business, I've not had the chance to leave Athens since August last year (woe!), however an accidental bus ride (Athenian buses and I do not have a comfortable relationship) on my way to pay some bills on my day off, found me in the centre of the city on a sunny spring day. I took the opportunity to wander around and remind myself of the beauty that can be found in my adopted home town.

There is no such thing in my life as Too Much Snow, so I'd been keeping a keen eye on the weather and snow was foreast in northern Athens over the last few days, so while my suburb is sadly snow-free, the nearby mountains are a beautiful frosty white. On Monday my lovely boyfriend took me on a drive to Parnitha where I squeed, faffed and generally bounced around in the snow. Of course, I also took dozens of photographs, here are a few of my favourites...
