I would like to have all the portraits I have taken in one place, so this is it (***Continued from "MY PORTRAITS" theme***).
Well, there isn't a lot to be said about Santorini that isn't already known. It's one of the most famous Greek islands and it deserves it. The spectacular landscape of the caldera, the picturesque villages with the impressive traditional architecture, great atmosphere, great sunsets! Do you need anything more?
Mani is a beautiful place, despite the wild, rough and arid, landscape, or maybe just because of that. It also has some picturesque villages, excellent traditional architecture, with some imposing "towerhouses", and some hidden Byzantine "jewels". It is located in the middle peninsula, on the south part of Peloponnesus.
A collection of my personal photos from Athens, the city where I live in. Daily life is dificult in the greek Capital, but there are still some beautiful corners to walk around and take pictures.
Since I was a little boy, I have always been dreaming about a trip to Cappadocia. There is an greek old saying: "Whenever you hear about a lot of cherries, take a small basket with you"! The meaning is that one should not have great expectations when he hears a lot of things about something. Cappadocia was NOT that case. I couldn't find a basket large enough for so many "cherries" I found there! Not just some extraordinary landscape, but also a place full of history and culture!
The relationship between Greece and water in general is very well known, mostly because the country is surrounded by sea. Many people don't know that in Greece there are also some beautiful lakes and here are some of them (Continued from Lakes and Lagoons of Greece Theme)
Milos, that magnificent island, is my absolute favourite among the Cyclades. More than 80 fantastic beaches, some of them among the most spectacular of Greece, great traditional architecture, and an open-air geological museum.
Istanbul is nominated Cultural Capital of Europe for 2010, so if you need any pretext to visit this majestic city, here's one . It's a city with many diferent "faces" and countless monuments from different eras. It's many diferent cities in one, many diferent cultures side by side. It's the only city of the world that stands on 2 continents, Europe and Asia. If one city deserves the designation of "Cultural melting pot", then that's Istanbul! So, here's part of its cultural richness!
