Mykonos has sooo many great beach-clubs depending what you like. One of the most famous ones is – Scorpios. I think it’s a great place but of course I have a few thing I would like to change hehe. All thought they’ve uninterrupted views of the generous Cycladic sun, a few dozen wooden cabanas and sunbeds that blend discreetly with their natural surroundings. Go there Tuesdays or Sundays and definitiv try their restaurant, a lot of vegan and vegetarian options and drink cocktails – I had a big watermelon-juice and a Berry Secret, that’s a cocktail with vodka, homemade ginger sirup and passionfruit yuuuum xx
After six previous sold-out editions, this year I finally got a ticket (!) Amsterdam Open Air is located as usual in recreational park Gaasperpark, it’s about 20 min outside the city. Our friends from Holland helped us with everything and we all became like a big happy family during these days. All djs were absolutely amazing and played awesome music. The atmosphere was on top all weekend 9/10 (no bowl’s) hehe – yey xxx
Amsterdam has more to see than Red Light and Coffee-shops. The city has 165 canals and over 1200 bridges (that is more than Venice). Our first goal wast to find men, wine and lunch in the sun of course. Ended up at Pulitzer Hotel – they have a hidden garden nestled at the center of the hotel.This part’s located away from the hustle and bustle of the city, it is a tranquil hideaway to relax or socialize among seasonal plants and playful sculptures. My favorite was their salted-caramel macaron xx
Guess where I’m going this weekend? AMSTERDAM! Been one of my must-visit cities forever AND of course when I heard about Open-Air there was no doubt. Going with Rosie and a few of her friends, they seem amazing and we already have a lot planned or us. More info about the apartment we’re renting and our plans there are comiii’n. SOOOO EXCITED, now I have to write 3 essays and lots of work before I can start organizing my packing x
This you should know this before you visit Amsterdam.
HOW MANY BICYCLES ARE THERE IN AMSTERDAM?
According to the most recent figures, the 850.000 residents of Amsterdam together own 847.000 bicycles. That represents 1.91 bicyles per household.
HOW MANY CANALS ARE THERE IN AMSTERDAM?
Amsterdam has 165 canals — with a combined length of 100 KM (60 Miles)
CAN YOU SWIM IN THE CANALS?
Yes and no. People do swim in the canals — illegally or at ‘official unofficial’ spots. And then there’s Amsterdam City Swim an annual fundraising event — prior to which extra sanitation of the water takes place. After all, canal swimmers have to take into account certain hazards.
WHY IS EVERYONE WEARING ORANGE CLOTHES?
Huh? We don’t. Well, actually, we do — but only on certain occasions. Orange is the color of the Dutch Royal Family, which hails from the House of Orange.
As I said before Mykonos really is that island that has it all and a bit more. Nammos is located down a windy and dusty road on the edge of popular Psarou Beach. It’s like Greece’s Saint Tropez but better. Here you will find sunbeds in finest oak, liters of ice-cold Dom Perignon and Russians of course. The restaurant is divided between a formal dining area, lounge with bar, and beach club. Cane-wrapped sunshades dot the adjacent beach, serviced by bronzed waitresses working the hundred-or-so sun loungers filled with hungry tanning vacationers x
Mikonos, Μύκονος or Mykonos. Known for three things – beautiful beaches, beautiful people and beautiful nightlife. Luckily, I love all three dearly, but getting to this mecca was a trip in and of itself. Can’t stop thinking about it, everyday I felt like I entered a Dolce & Gabbana ad campaign. Above all, Mykonos is a state of mind the beauty of which is accessible tough learning to feel the immaterial, see the invisible, hear the inaudible. Trust me, I have been to many many many beautiful places around the world but this is something beyond perfection. Of course I have a few things I’ll change and bring to the island but soon baby soon…
I know, after all, that I have that islander blood. It’s something magical visit all the southern beaches by boat, bbq’n at one of the top villas, cocktails when visit Delos island, go fishing some salty octopus, drop dead beautiful sunsets and of course make out with a greek model at Scorpios (first pic from their web-page) or Principote@Panormos Beach. I’ll spend my summer there, you’ll see 😉
@Piwna 47 – It’s both the name of the restaurant and its exact address in Gdansk. The place is cosy, warm and they serve international food haha thank god so tired of polish food everywhere. After some shopping we by accident walk into this little restaurant. Started with some mango/chili cocktails but after a few hours we ate lots of food too. Do not miss this place if you are in Gdansk xx
Most people doesn’t know about these white beaches along the coast in Poland. They call Gdansk the luxury polish riviera, hmm not shore about that but the beach was nice. Found so many beautiful doors tho, look at this one in green marble xx
Leaving to Warsaw, Gdansk and Sopot. Do not forget to read this, Nöjeskollen this week about Warsaw. I got super excited to go there after writing it hehe so lucky me xx
