Felt right at home here

Kuten tässä postauksessa kerroinkin, me yövyttiin Oíassa Santo Maris -nimisessä hotellissa (tarkemmin paikan nimi taitaa kuulua Santo Maris Luxury Suites & Spa). Oltiin kyllä tosi tyytyväisiä majoitukseen, ja varsinkin itse huoneeseen, jonka “luksushippi”-fiiliksestä tykkäsin superpaljon. Sviitillä oli myös kokoa, olihan se pinta-alaltaan isompi kuin meidän oma kämppä. Huoneeseen kuului merinäköala ja terassi jacuzzeineen. Lopulta tosin kävi niin, ettei käytetty poreallasta ollenkaan. Terassille paistoi iltapäivän aurinko tosi kuumasti niin, että myös altaan vesi oli ihan liian lämmintä meille. Ilmeni, että porealtaalla oli yksi funktio, ja se oli toimia Tikrun ja sen kissanpentukaverien juottoaltaana. Jos jotain miinusta hotlasta pitäisi keksiä, niin kuntosali olisi voinut olla paremmin varusteltu ja muutamat, yksittäiset hotellin työntekijät olivat vähän hitaita. Tämä ilmeni siten, että jouduttiin viikon aikana ehkä kaksi kertaa itse siirtämään aurinkovarjoa niin, että mä sain auringon siirtyessä olla edelleen varjossa (tästä huomattavasta rasituksesta juuri ja juuri selvittiin). Kuullaan taas huomenna lisää!

As I in this post told you, we stayed at a hotel called Santo Maris in Oía (I think the whole name of the place is Santo Maris Luxury Suites & Spa). We were more than happy with our choice of accomodation, and I must say I loved the luxurious yet boho vibe of the decor. Our suite was pretty huge as it actually was bigger than our home at the moment. Additionally, we were spoiled with a sea view and a terrace with our own private jacuzzi. At the end of the week, we noticed we hadn’t used the hot tub at all as the afternoon sun on the patio was way too hot for us (typical Finns). The jacuzzi had one function, though, and we noticed it was to serve as Tikru’s and other kittens’ trough. If I had to criticize something, perhaps the gym could’ve been a bit more versatile, plus one or two of the employees also were a bit slow. The latter meant that, we had to move our umbrella at the pool one or two times ourselves during the week (we survived). Talk to you again tomorrow!

... Paris! On Wednesday it's time to pack our bags and head to a long-expected getaway in the most romantic city of the Western Europe. Even though we're not expecting beautifully blooming flowers or a clear blue sky, this short vacation of ours will be much needed. We only have a few things planned. To make a few calculated purchases, try out different restaurants and also to hold back rain in the cutest of cafés, that is. Let's see if we'll have either the time or the energy to check out a few museums or maybe even take a stroll through the pretentious, yet so luxurious palace of Versailles. Already looking forward to Wednesday! ... Paris! ...
Here's the first part of my Nice photo diary. I simply love walking around with my Canon and shooting all the little details that catch my aesthetic eye. Tässä Nizzan kuvapäiväkirjani ensimmäinen osa. Nautin suunnattomasti kaupungin ihmettelemisestä kamera kainalossa, ja pienet, esteettistä silmää miellyttävät yksityiskohdat on aivan pakko pysähtyä tallentamaan filmille, tottakai. The second day we spent in Nice, we walked through the beautiful, legendary flower market, marché aux fleurs. I've actually thought about writing you a separate post about it! When visiting the city, don't skip walking to the hill situated in the eastern part of ...
Pastel pink sunset on Kantiang beach with kids playing on the pier Gentle warmth of the evening sun Here’s the last set of ”postcards” taken on our vacation in Thailand, even though I still have a few unpublished outfit pictures waiting to be released. To end our trip, we spent one and a half days in Krabi. The move from one hotel to another happened luckily really smoothly with Pimalai hotel’s boat and, after that, in the safe hands of their chauffeur. In Krabi we basically only saw the pier in Ao Nang, and I must say that after seeing the place, both of us started missing Ko Lanta, a lot. But of course, compared to the weather then in F ...
