I visited the Greek island of Tinos with my mum a few weeks ago and was pleasantly surprised by its beauty; the sea, and the picturesque little villages. I have posted my outfit from that trip here if you want to have a look. Being on holidays in Greece at a time of political and economic turbulence makes you look for the positive little things. These images also bring to mind some picture quotes I saw a while back that had ‘Greek Sun: Not in Crisis’ and others, written on. That was a campaign created by Peter Economides in 2012, now more relevant than ever, which you can see here.
Kolimpithra beach is the surfers’ paradise (not on that day as there was no wind) and the ultimate relaxation spot, away from everyone, lying on the beach with relaxing music playing on the background.
We had a delicious meal next to the sea at Thalassaki and chatted and laughed and had a bit too much wine, but that’s what holidays are for, right?
In Tinos it was customary to have ‘pigeon halls’ on the facade of your house, as people would feed the pigeons and use their feces for agricultural purposes.

Walking around the cute village of Volax with its small alleyways. They also have an outdoor theatre that takes advantage of the good echo throughout the village.
This platanus tree has been there for over 100 years. It is in the centre of the main square of Pyrgos where you can stop for a coffee or a delicious galaktoboureko (traditional Greek custard pie, photo below).
