The buying a house to-do list

You love the place you live in, right. You moved in here after you graduated from university and you built it with passion and love, you turned it into a home. Every small detail that makes it so adorable was chosen with desire and there is no person who comes here and is not impressed. For you it is a simple pleasure to just sit on the couch with a cup of coffee and a nice book in an easy Sunday afternoon and enjoy the simple things in life. Because the home is far more than just a place to sleep in, it is a reflection of yourself; it is somewhere you could be at ease, you could love and share and be loved in return.

The children’s summer vacation heaven – Halkidiki

When I was young and wild, what I was looking for was a summer vacation in a place I could be young and wild, I could have fun – I wanted discos and fancy beaches and other young people to meet and I didn’t want calmness and relax, because I simply didn’t need them – there is charm in youth and in it the desire to prove yourself and the world that you will be forever young, that you are undying, your death – deathless. With the time, however, absolutely logically, I grew up, I graduated a university and started working, I fell in love and started looking at the world through the eyes of my beloved, his happiness was my happiness and we found the joy in the old and ancient places, the lonely beaches, the road trips and a simple shared silence of a park. There is no silence anymore, and anyone who has two little children as wild as I was in my youth could perfectly understand me. So those vacations I relished and worshiped some time ago, were completely unsuitable for my lifestyle now and I started looking for a more family type of holiday.

And when only a couple of weeks later, we arrived in a lovely little town there, the views were breathtaking and I had no single regret. But now you are most probably wondering, how is Halkidiki so different?   More
