Down to the sea

Today I start posting about our trip to Antibes.
On our first day’s morning, when Alex went to work, I planned to go to the Eilenroc villa. I have read in the internet that it is a nice place especially for those who like old houses. However it was an early morning so I doubted the villa is open for visitors. Therefore I decided to go and look around to start with. I chose to walk to the South-Western coast and below are the photos of what I’ve seen there.

Сьогодні я почну розповідати про нашу поїздку до Антіб.
Вранці першого дня, коли Олександр пішов на роботу, я планувала піти до вілли Eilenroc. В Інтернеті я читала, що це гарне місце, особливо для тих, хто любить старі будинки (а я саме одна з таких людей)). Але було ще рано та я сумнівалася, що вілла буде відкрита для відвідувачів… Тож я вирішила спочатку пройтися та подивитися навколо. Мене цікавило південно-західне узбережжя, воно і стало моїм пунктом призначення.  А що там очікувало на мене – дивіться на фото)

[566] Support Mariupol.

Yesterday Ukrainian community of Cyprus organized meeting to honor the memory of those killed and injured as a result of Russian invasion and Saturday’s attack.

On Saturday (24th of January) Ukrainian city – Mariupol was attacked by rockets from territories occupied by terrorists and Russian military forces. Rocket fire slammed into a market, schools, homes and shops. 27 people were killed, 97 – injured…
Wishing fast recovery for the wounded.

Eternal memory to the victims.
Glory to all the heroes, who fight for their country.

Disgrace to those who came to foreign land to kill civilians! I hope they will pay for all the evil done.

[565] Kourion beach

It might be a good idea, to go by the sea and relax, when you are in terrible mood. That’s what we did on Sunday. Fresh wind and the sound of waves can blow out of mind any negative thoughts. Kourion beach is a perfect place for that. Our favorite taverna was closed for renovation, so we stayed in the other one. The Sunshine restaurant turned out also a quite nice place. Moreover I managed to take few pictures of the Kourion beach from slightly different foreshortening.

[542] Finland. Day 3

Finally after some delay I continue writing about our adventures. On the third day we went to barbecue with our friends. Finnish nature is amazing! I was happy that we didn’t bring any music player or guitar to the picnic place because it would totally destroy the surrounding magic. Several times I almost believed a hobbit or another fantasy creature might be hiding behind the trees. Actually, why not? If I were a fairy I would definitely live in the forests of Finland!:)

[540] Finland. Day 2.

On our second day in Helsinki we decided to watch the city. First we took a tram. A good thing about it is that route 2 and 3 are cycled, so you can take a tram and after some time it will bring you back to the place where you started. ( Unfortunately I didn’t take any photos)

Our next adventure was to go to the observation wheel in order to see the city from the height. The view was amazing and this time we took some pictures
