Summer in Sithonia

Hello everybody!
Long time no posting, right?
Well, you know how September is ...A month full of new goals and priorities as well as lots of obligations and plans that summer and its low rythms has left unfulfilled and delayed.
To tell you the truth, I've always thought of September as a  fresh new start in every year much more than the New Year's Day. I mean, summer is a period that I would get some rest and at the same time make some sort of thinking of all the good and bad things that happened the year before. So in this sense, September is the beginning of a new era and a starting point for new things.
Anyway, before I tell you about my plans for this new 'year' I believe it's time I told you about some of the things I did last summer.
I've had a great time visiting one of the places that here in Thessaloniki is supposed to be a very close and ordinary destination for weekends and short trips. Yep, my greek followers guessed it right...
 I've spent my summer holidays in Halkidiki (Sithonia to be more exact) and although I'm a great fan of Aegean islands such as Cyclades that have a traditional flair I, once more, got overwhelmed by the wild beauty of a paradise that is practically one step away from home.
 Pines and olive trees, golden sandy beaches with lukewarm, crystal clear waters, amazing sunsets and great food are some of the assets that this blessed place has to offer.

The photos describe it so much better than I do actually, so my rambling is over...
Have a great autumn everyone, hope you've had a great summer as well!!
