I didn’t know what to expect, but I knew I wanted to go there. Being there meant that I could finally understand the lyrics of an old Dutch children’s song from “kinderen voor kinderen” called op een onbewoond eiland. They sing about life on a uninhabited island and it’s one of my favorites kids songs. Now a dream was coming true.

another snowy river in canazei

It has been 1,5 month now that I’ve been living again in Italy for the winter season and last week it finally started to snow. Having all those pretty mountains around makes me want to take out my camera and take a hike when you won’t go snowboarding. This is the result of an afternoon stroll with my camera through the beautiful Albi di Canazei in the Italian Dolomites.

Hiking to ancient Vrougoúnda

Vrougounda_karpathos_greece

Today I woke up, had my breakfast with my boyfriend and in the afternoon we decided we’d go snowboarding. We’re living in the Dolomites for the season, so we might as well make use of the fact that we’re living in the mountains.

The Best of Turkey and the Greek Islands

Alaturka Blue Cruise turkey 33

While much is written about the poor relationship between Greece and Turkey, epitomized by the divided island of Cyprus, at local level there are no such problems. There are numerous islands on the Turquoise Coast, many not far from the Turkish Mainland. Many are very small and uninhabited. Those that have a population are exclusively Greek and there is regular daily contact between the Greek population and their near neighbours, Turks. They happily co-exist and tourists coming to the area can sail these seas going backwards and forwards between Turkey and Greece.
