VELATOURI HILL

Velatouri

Kind of lost for words, since privately things aren’t going that well. I’m still in Greece, considering the option to take an earlier flight (I planned to leave coming Sunday), but I think I just need a good night of sleep so I can think straight again tomorrow. In the meantime, I’d love to share some pretty details from the surroundings around here, which is the perfect thing to clear my head. With a friend, I spent two days on the Velatouri hill photographing features of ancient habitation for documentation. Of course, I took the opportunity to make pictures of the flowers, the theatre, the view, etc. And yes, the pictures look like it was 40 degrees Celsius, which it was.

It’s me with my cowboy’s hat and extremely long legs!

white flower

Love how my camera is able to capture the tiniest details. While sitting down in the shadows having a water break, it always surprises me that so many pretty flowers survive these temperatures.

Lavrion

They look prickly (is that a word?) and they were. You should see my legs.

Thorikos theatre

The backside of the ancient theater. More last-year-theater-pictures here.

Mini Mouse balloon

Okay, this was creepy. We were sitting down close to the necropolis (ancient ghosts!) when we heard something rustle behind us. It turned out to be this Mini Mouse balloon, eeeks.

Velatouri

The view from the top of the Velatouri never gets boring, find last year’s pictures here.

From here, we could smell the souvlaki from the beach bar below. Since we had run out of water and didn’t have lunch yet (at 1pm) we basically FLEW DOWN the hill like two crazy girls.

inscription

Maybe this is just me, but how cool is it that there are ancient graffiti inscriptions (2000 to 2500 years old) randomly lying around for everyone to be seen? It’s hard to read this one, but it probably represents something similar to our X was here or X and Y = best friends forevah graffitis. Haha, people never change.

While craving for souvlaki I saw this strange vegetation. Thought I was hallucinating at first, HAHA, but no, souvlaki apparently grows here.

Well, that’s it for now! I still got some diary- and Spain photos to share, as well as an outfit. Don’t know how much I’ll update, because of my home situation, and maybe I’ll just post pics and don’t feel like talking, but we’ll see! As I said on Instagram earlier: I want to keep this my happy place, so if I got nothing nice to say, I won’t say anything. At the same time I wanna try to continue focusing on the good/fun stuff and therefore I hope I’ll keep on updating regularly!

Stay updated?

      Dankjewel! Het valt op zich wel mee hoor, dit is niet bepaald het mooiste gebied van Griekenland. Maar het had dit voorjaar flink geregend, dus er was meer begroeiing dan anders, dat was inderdaad mooi!
