It’s already been a month since i moved to Austria and i feel like a new person…There is no looking back or thoughts of doubt, it had to be done and i couldn’t be happier that i’m able to share it with you all.
This weekend i visited my relatives in upper Austria, Gmunden and Altmünster. I had an amazing time and it was really lovely to see them all again after almost 8 years. It’s been too long since my last visit in Austria, when previously we used to visit almost every year. It still feels surreal that i actually live in Austria now but the breathtaking nature and the smiles i receive everyday make it real.
Enjoy a panoramic view from the mountains in Reindlmühl area, it was really refreshing to wake up to this view for 2 days! I’m really lucky to have an aunt and uncle that live on the mountainside 😀 More photos to come!

So, as promised this week we’ll have a nice little tour of Sithonia, second “leg” of the Halkidiki peninsula. Starting off with a panoramic image, so you can get a taste of the scenery that we are going to explore in the next posts.

Next stop is a little community called Loutra. Loutra literally means baths/bathhouse!The villagegotits namefrom the hot springs that exist there, famousfortheir healingproperties. The first spring was discovered by a farmer whowas lookingforsulfur to sprinkle onhisvines.Afterthe end ofWorld War II, residentsblastedthe rockswithdynamite and out of them gushed hydrosulfide with a watertemperature of 39C/102F. There used to be volcano in the area and that’s what makes these springs so unique.
Unfortunately i do not have any photos of the springs, or the luxurious spa but i can tell you this…Hydrosylfide stinks!!! No, i mean it really stinks! My dad used to visit the springs and i still remember how he smelled like a rotten egg combined with a hot fart. I hope you were not eating while reading this, if you were i’m really sorry…but it’s true 😛
I’ll try to make it up to you with some photos of the area around Loutra. Click on them to start a full screen gallery view 🙂

Nea Skioni is a little village located in the peninsula of Kassandra, Halkidiki, Greece. Nea Skioni was established in 1918 and used to be a fisherman village. It is named after the ancient city of Skioni, whose site was nearby to the east. According to Thucydides, Skioni was built by the Pelleneans from Peloponnese on their way back from the war of Troy. The village is now a popular tourist destination and has one of the prettiest ports in the area.
