It’s not often that you get to experience the silence of winter on your own. It’s the combination of frosty air with sunny crisp shines that somehow transform the landscape into something quite magical. Well, since I have had the privilege of experiencing such delights, it seemed a pity not to share a glimpse of that with you. Here are some of my moments captured while on the road through Transylvania.

Sifnos Island, Greece
I will soon implode if I don’t get to share with you some of my flaming happy energy I got from this island. Since all seems just chaotic stardust and magical memories in my mind, I will refrain from using great words and will show you some of the beauty I captured the past days in Greece. Through that I hope you get a smile and I will call it a successful mission.
Only 3 hours away by ferry from Athens’s port, Piraeus, Sifnos is a gorgeous island in the Cyclades island group with tons of beaches to explore and captivating history. All you have to do is rent a scouter or a car and drive around its edges and reputed towers left over by the mining that was going on in ancient times. The island was very wealthy once since gold, silver and lead were mined here as far back as 3rd millennium BC.
The main cities are the landing port – Kamares, the island’s capital close to the center of the land, Apollonia – named after one of the most important deity in Greek and Roman mythology and Kastro – a roman based settlement on a hill facing the Aegean Sea with narrow white paths and gorgeous Greek blue details. Every little settlement will surprise you with at least one gorgeous church. Here’s my piece of sparkling universe.
Until next time, stay high.
