January has not been an easy month for me. February all the same.
I needed a break and had to see the waves in order to somewhat calm down. Patras is and always has been an excellent choice for mood-making. (Though I couldn’t eat, which was hard, considering I had to avoid temptations for 2 whole days is the Cheap&AwesomeFood capital. Whatever, I guess I’ll have someone from there pack a suitcase with food and come to me.)
Here’s a small photo log (As stated above – not a good mood, forget about the carnival Patras, just wander around the ordinary calm one)
√ Go eat and drink at ‘Skaribas’ & ‘Sinialo’, enjoy cocktails etc at ‘Notos’ and coffee & waffles at ‘Theatraki’.

I don’t remember how this ‘no focus’ effect is officially called, but I like it

Last week was Semana Santa for Spain (and all Catholics). Sevilla celebrates it in a grandiose and magnificent way. Check out some interesting pictures from my trip there! I had fun being there — I hope you have fun mind-travelling there!
Belem, yum yum!
Ah~! Interesting fact alert!
In Portugal there’s this sweet called Belem. Resembles belleelene, don’t you think? Anyway, it’s cutesy and tasty and I ate about 3 of them in 15′. I bought them from a bakery at the end of the foot-walk in San Antonio, Portugal.
