Between heaven & earth
This was one my most adventurous hikes !…
I’ve never hiked much, unlike my boyfriend who’s into all kinds of sports, I’m not very sporty. I used to hike a bit when I was living in L.A., but it was nothing like the hike I went on to get to Preveli beach.
Honestly, I wasn’t prepared ! I got a bit of vertigo, a sunburn, and the way up was the worse, but the views were worth it. The beach is surrounded by beautiful tall palms, but to access it you gotta get down from the top of a hill (which is very rocky), or find a boat ride from a nearby city with a harbor.
Yes, so it’s pretty much crazy. There is a little cafe down there, believe it or not. I was shocked, but you can order some simple foods & drinks, and the shades from the palms are pleasant. The most unusual thing ever is that there is an actual river that stops right at the sea, there’s a sand formation that separates the two. Very beautiful and cool.
Take the high roller !
Many fun activities in Las Vegas…
- Let’s start with the High Roller, an observation wheel, from where you can get awesome views. It’s a truly fun experience, and they have an open bar on the last floor, with an open sky; pretty sweet. Or try the Zip Line !
- Definitely do a tour to the Grand Canyon; depending on your budget, you have quite a few possibilities. Usually, you can book that right there and then. They might even have discount prices, whereas online they won’t because you do that in advance.
- The best shows are mostly full, so if there’s one particular show you’re into and that’s quite famous, book online. Same goes for nightclubs with DJ-celebrities, you won’t get in unless you got a ticket first. But otherwise, all unsold shows will have discounts for the same-night.
- You have the Gondola Boat Rides at The Venetian, a Shark Reef Aquarium at the Mandalay Bay, a Viewing Deck at the Eiffel Tower, another iconic view from the Stratosphere Tower, and the LINQ Promenade…
Let the fun begin !
It’s officially been over a week
The first day of Spring was spent at home… due to the Coronavirus outbreak. I’ve been confined since last Thursday, this is day 8 for me.
I got sick just before finding out on the news about a possible contamination of the population, from a virus named Covid-19. It felt as if we were living through a lousy apocalyptic scenario, but it was all true.
My doctor asked me to stay confined before the government of this country made it mandatory. I was put on sick leave for about a week before things with the world started to get really bad… my doctor was protecting me.
He said that people with a fragile condition, such as mine, are better off at home, away from whatever might come. I haven’t lived a normal day since. But I’m keeping myself busy and optimistic.
I get to read more, draw a little, complete some puzzles, get some fitness exercises done, and most importantly, keep in touch with my family & friends since we’re apart. I’m lucky enough to be confined with the love of my life. I couldn’t bear this without him by my side.
