Good morning lovelies. Hope you are having an amazing day. Yesterday morning found us on the road, excited to reach our destination. I only had a few
memories of this place from many years ago, around the time my family set a pretty great goal, to visit as many beach side places as possible in one
summer (I think it was the summer of 2008). Anyhow the beautiful colors of the aria along with the more its 2000+ years old history made this place so
fascinating to me that I surely couldn't resist. We met so many hospital, kind people with great stories to tell, something that you can always find in
such traditional villages. Feels almost like they are stuck in time, away from the hustle and bustle of the big cities, able to enjoy every single moments as we
all should, without the unlimited stress that most of us have.
The first thing that came to our mind as soon as we arrive was to take a long walk , smell the flowers and photograph all those secret corners cause surely we
won't see something similar anytime soon. Throughout the day I couldn't help but feel a little jealous of the locals and of how bleast they really are for being
able to admire this sceneries every single day.

As it was expected we once again found our way to the beach, but not before taking the chance to glimpse at the endless blue from above.

After more than 3 hours of constant walking and shooting with a few, short stops in the most beautiful places we found along our way we took a break
to caught our breath with a cup of iced coffee and perhaps the most delicious pizza I have tasted in a long time. We spend the rest of the day siting at the
restaurant in order to avoid the sun that, at this hour, was shinning more than ever and a few hours later we went back on the streets , excited to see everything
Our one-day trip was coming to an end but not before visiting every souvenir shop around the aria just to pick the most beautiful pieces of jewelry I could find .
After all Afytos is one the best places to find amazing (and handmade) designs in the most affordable prices.
