Gorgeous Greece!


The second part of our holiday was in Greece where we went to a traditional Greek wedding ... two beautiful Australians with Greek heritage married on Paros and it was spectacular!  Alexander was best man and it was the experience of a lifetime ....



beautiful sunsets .......


Paros Poros beach ....


anyone for a little tennis?


we went to this beautiful restaurant on our last night in Paros and it was just wonderful ... I loved the interiors ... so beachy, clean lines, the rope artwork and timber floors ....






This was our bed in our Mykonos hotel .... YUM!!!!! 



another gorgeous sunset whilst having dinner on Mykonos ... I had the risotto and it was wonderful!  Lisa at Hamptontoes loves my risotto but Lisa I  think you would have loved this one!



Dominic and Georgiana at dinner ....


I am loving this wicker chair ......



Cycladic architecture is beautiful with white buildings, blue domed roof-tops ....


Whilst at our hotel we met a relative purely by chance from Ireland .... it was incredible ....my maiden name is O'Driscoll (very Irish ~ County Cork) .... Patrick had his cap on which read "Pat O'Driscoll" Real Estate as he has them for advertising ... we met these lovely people and decided that we must be related as Lisa's parents hailed from County Cork as well!   

what can I say ... pink wicker!!!!


pink sunbeds!!!!!


just a little bit of orange to throw into the mix ....
perfection!!!!!  Hope you all had a great week-end!

best wishes always
M.A. the 2nd

Oh Wow, Greece as well ...how lucky are you! I love Greece. I have been to the Greek Islands twice but never made it to Paros. I had a ball but never ate anywhere fancy or did anything stylish - just partied all night and recovered on the beach by day! Must go back & do it in a little more style next time. I'd have to stay at that place with the pink wicker chairs!

Hello AM2nd,
it has been a while since I visited and apologies for that. Did some catching up for the last hour( at least) and thoroughly enjoyed visiting all your latest posts. this visit to Greece that you shared has convinced me that should be our next holiday.
. Our very first trip as a young married couple to Europe included a visit to Sciathos. We loved it so much we continued to visit Sciathos plus one or two different Greek islands every two years or so, sometimes more. We even seriously considered a property there, but then realized that would spoil the fun of exploring new places for us..does that make sense? Anyway until 11 years ago,when I seriously fell in love with Paris and slowly got mesmerized but the whole of France,the different regions and the lifestyle.Hence the reason for my frequent trips to indulge in all things French
I think we should revisit Greece.....thank you for the inspiration and reminding me!
Hugs and xx
Colette
