It had been two years since our last visit to Evia, and it was a last minute decision to go (as both The Boyfriend and I had forgotten about the May 1st holiday), but it was a perfectly relaxing trip, something we both sorely needed.

A year had passed since I was last in Evia! We'd originally planned to go on the Friday, that got pushed back to Saturday and then finally, Sunday (all with good cause, to hang out with a friend from the other side of the world). It was a short, but very relaxing trip.

The Boyfriend and I decided to end 2013 in our standard getaway destination - Evia. This time with added kittens.

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.

I've been to this same spot a few times now, but it still holds its magic.

The Beach


This holiday was for relaxing, and that is exactly what happened. The vast majority of my time was spent swimming in the sea or reading while sprawled in the shade. Occasionally stopping to make lunch or watch a film or play Portal on the laptop.

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. ♥
