Sunset at sea

The last couple of months I’ve been extremely busy at work, and had practically no time for myself except the early morning workout routine (which got pretty exhaustive in the end as I was pulling late hours trying to finish all the project). I managed to complete all the important projects just on time before starting summer holidays. This is the view from my first day off, enjoying the sunset at sea.

A trip down the memory lane to the sea

This was the first summer in a long time when I didn’t go to the seaside for at least a day. Considering I spent more than 3 years living on the coast, and enjoying the salty air, I might think I wouldn’t miss it, but I do. A trip down the memory lane brought some nice memories of swimming in the cool sea, walking down the promenade or simply enjoying sunsets at the beach. We only have about 46 km of the coastline, but we do have some beautiful spots along that line.

Summer offline mode

I’m getting ready for a trip to the sea side. According to the information on the apartment, internet won’t be available. Just to make sure to keep me occupied during the next 10 days, I packed these:

Summer reading list

As I prefer to stay out of the sun during the peak hours to protect myself from sunburns, having a pile of books at the side is my best option. Just in case I ran out of the paperbacks, I have extra books on my Kindle (around 40 unread).

Reading ebooks has another advantage during summer holidays. While enjoying beautiful sunsets on the terrace, and light breeze in the late evening, there’s no need to keep the lights on, hence avoiding mosquito bites.

Usually, I try to get familiar with the location where I’m going, so I don’t have problems with orientation and more importantly, to find the interesting locations for visiting before the start of the trip. However, as Google Street view is not available for this year’s location, I’m getting in the mood by going through the old pictures.
