Friday!!! Yes! I took the day off today to for a little rest and relaxation. I’m looking forward to having a long, leisurely lunch, a bit of window shopping, people watching, and walking around. But maybe I’ll just do a whole lot of nothing.
I found that doing nothing is the ultimate luxury, and I got to experience it for a week in Corfu in May. Corfu, or Kerkyra, as the Greeks call it, is a Greek island on the Ionian Sea. Surrounded by the deep blue, that faded into turquoise sea, and lush greens, Corfu is a beautiful paradise perfect for a retreat.
The Grecotel Eva Palace has a pool with seawater, but I was more drawn to its private beach. Almost everyday, I went to there with a bag filled with a book, a camera, my phone (which I barely checked – a miracle! I posted on instagram once in a while), sunscreen and a snack. During my reading breaks, I would either swim, sleep, or sunbathe. It was perfect. It was like a really, really long weekend. The sun’s warm rays against my skin, the gentle sound of waves crashing, and the feel of sand under my feet were just what I needed to recharge. *starts daydreaming now*
