Last week on my birthday my mom and I went to Nafplio.
It is the former capital of Greece
and lies about an hour and a half by car from here ...
I thought I still had many more beautiful pictures of this gorgeous old city,
but unfortunately ...
They are somewhere on a backup because they were
taken with my previous camera.
Next time I will take some more pictures when I go there again.
Well of course I took some pictures from my purchases and gifts
when I got back at home...
The Tweety and Mickey Mouse are standing on a tube
with some very strange candy, that I didn't dear to eat...
Here I have everything unpacked ...
a mixture of all kind of miniatures LOL!
My parents gave me money for my birthday so I could buy something myself.
I actually did buy something very very beautiful!!
Well not here in Nafplion.
But I will tell you more about that later...
Of course my mom spoiled me with some extra gifts...
And here are the specific Greek things that I bought,
all together ...
But I still find this piece the most extraordinary discovery!
It's a fruit bowl that is hand made of olive wood ...
They also have a website with all things handmade from olive wood:
It was truly a wonderful day!!
First we had a coffee together at the time that we arrived
and for lunch a delicious Gyros and fresh Greek salad.
Fortunately it was not too hot
So... a beautiful day for shopping as you have seen
Mom, thanks for this wonderful day!
We do this again next year
