With this Covid-19 pandemic, and the quarantine shenanigans, I’ve started reading regularly again. I mean, I had to find some activities to pass the time, and this is one of them.
I had forgotten how much I liked reading… it’s been a delight. Especially while seating outside, and soaking some sun, no matter the temperatures.
But now that things have kinda come back to a sort of new normal, I have those “busy weeks” piling up and there’s days on end when I don’t find the time for a read. Which actually upsets me.
But I also know that if I set a small goal, like a book club, to share my reads with you every month or so, then it can totally motivate me to find the time for it : which is exactly what I need, and which is why I’ve decided to do this.
Okay, so here’s how it’s gonna work. I give you a book to read and basically a month to finish it. Then I write a small review, and onto the next one ! Exciting uh ? Yes !
So this week we’re starting off with one of my favorite modern day writer Rupi Kaur, who just released a new book made of poems that she named “Home Body”. I just got it digitally, and can’t wait to sit on the patio later in the day, to enjoy it.
I highly encourage you to do the same thing, see you ! xoxox
Seeing the sun disappear in the endless water surrounding us on this little island that Crete is, was such a beautiful experience. The colors were fantastic and I wished for that moment to never end, which is why I immortalised it on camera. So I can have the souvenir of that feeling, of that perfect evening with my love, forever.
My boyfriend takes wonderful portraits of me ! Props to him 💞
We’re here in Heraklion, Crete. On our way to the Rocca a Mare Fortress. We were supposed to reach the light house by sunset, but didn’t manage… it is quite a long road over the sea, about two km on foot. And we had many stops because the views were absolutely fantastic. Next time, we’ll go until the end of it ! #BucketList ✨
I have some remaining pictures of my vacation to Crete to share… but WordPress has changed their desktop features, and it’s really annoying now. It took me a while to make a simple post, like I used to. I tried to switch to the “classic” layout, but it has disappeared. Well, old school was much better.
Here we are in Heraklion, on our summer vacay, and as usual the views were breathtaking. Crete is a beautiful island, that we totally fell in love with. It’s a perfect destination for couples. I miss it a lot, and I miss the warmth.
This is the sunset / night set I was talking to you about, in one of my previous post. This is Plakias beach, and I fell in love with the views there ! It’s one of the windiest city in Crete, and it also has the best restaurant on the island in my opinion.
We dined at the GioMa Taverna, and I had pasta with seafood and it was seriously the most amazing I’ve had in my entire life… I’m not even exaggerating. I’m dying to come back to this place, for all of the feels. 💞
