Isn't it always the way, that when you stumble upon a magical moment that could make the best photos of all time, you don't have your camera with you?

It could just be me.

This sunset felt like the city I've been living in for the past three years waving me goodbye. This small european city has seen a lot of me, the ups and downs that have made the years what they've been, and I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful sky from the rooftop bar I've frequented often.

So, I made do with my iPhone, and it seems it did the trick as these photos are a surprisingly accurate souvenir of the incredible view. These are completely unfiltered, so you can imagine how stunning it was.

I will miss this.

Throwback Thursday

13 June 2013

This time last year, I was counting down the days for my very first trip to Santorini, Greece. E had booked us a surprise holiday, having known it was my dream to go there, for an incredible few days. 

On the second day in Santorini, both of us high on happiness from his proposal the night before, we headed to the town of Oia late in the afternoon. We enjoyed the famous greek sunset from a different location each night, but this one was probably the most special. Every summer evening, people gather on the steps and stones of Oia, a scattered (but packed) crowd forming as everyone waits patiently for the magic to happen. And at the moment the sun sets, there is a round of enthusiastic applause, locals and tourists alike. It was absolutely spectacular.

Patty & Bun

03 June 2013

What better way to kick off this blog than with a big, juicy burger?

After having read numerous reviews of this little joint, E and I were on a mission as we marched our hungry selves over to Patty & Bun.

We went on a weekday, but even as we arrived at a fairly early lunch hour, the place was packed. We luckily got a table straight away, but by the time we left there was a sizeable crowd on the pavement, waiting to get their hands on these outrageous burgers.

I chose the Ari Gold with rosemary fries, the burger bundled up in wrapping and the chips thrown into paper cups.

To say we suffered from a food coma is an understatement. As delicious and sinful as these were, they knocked us right out for the rest of the afternoon so these are not for the faint-hearted. As a once in a while treat though? Yes please.
