It had been years since I'd last been in Pilio, and even then, we were just passing through for the night. This time, in celebration of The Boyfriend and I reaching our tenth anniversary, we took off a few days to relax on the mountain.

The Boyfriend and I took a slightly belated Easter holiday to Evia.

The tent in Evia is a regular holiday spot and with good reason. Although there have been a couple of trips to London (which while enjoyable are far from relaxing), it's been months since I had a proper break from life in Athens. Going to a remote spot on an island, where there's little phone reception and nothing to do but hang out with friends, drink tea, read a book or walk on the beach or in the forest, relaxation almost forces itself upon you.

It had been a couple of years since I'd done a stereotypical Greek island holiday and I'd been hearing lots of good things about Lefkada. It also has the added bonus of being accessible by car, as ferries make me seasick (I am so flying to Crete).

I've been to this island three times before and the particular camping spot twice, but it's a beautiful place, with the added plus of home-away-from-home comforts - a bed, electricity and a constant supply of tea.

At Least This Heart Is Intact


It's no secret that my 2011 was not a kind one, so the idea of starting the new year by getting away from it all seemed a damn fine one. We set out with a car packed full of friends, food and blankets, planning to hunker down for a few days. Unlike most holidays which involve running around and seeing absolutely everything you can think of, it was very relaxed - which was exactly what was needed. For the few days we were there, I spent many, many hours sitting on the beach, walking in the forest or in the kitchen, making endless cups of tea and cooking meals for us all.

Relaxing, solitary bliss. ♥

Itea was once our regular getaway destination, but it had been almost a year since our last visit and in that time the place hasn't lost any of its charm. Due to Athens emptying out over the summer and the imminent departure of Armadillo and Dr. Sushi to Portugal, we shut the café for a few days and made our way to the seaside.

It had been far too long since our last getaway, waaaaay back in May. Fifteen weeks of not leaving Athens, which I guess I'd best get used to, but still, in the summer it's tough.
