Salty hair, calm waves and jellyfish paranoia were my life the past two weeks.
As a family trip we went to Haniotis, which is a village in Thessaloniki, Greece. This village is a paradise for tourists, but you’ll immediately forget about the cheesy shops and restaurants when you dive into the clear water.
We used our holiday to relax and to enjoy the last weeks before I will make my way to the United States. So we spent our time at the beach, tanning and swimming, with laughter and silence, through sand and the sea.
I love the feeling, when you put your head under water, total silence. The sun light which breaks in the water and leaves amazing patterns on the ground. And the moment after you’ll come up, your eyes filled with salt, but it was worth it. The first looks around and you have to press your eyes together, the sun is shining directly into your eyes. Then you start to realize the voices around you, you taste the salt, you smell the sea and you dive back in, total silence.
My days were filled with books, I finally had the time to get back into reading so here are my holiday books, the protagonists that went with me to Greece.
