You have now that job you have always dreamed about and you soon moved out from the place you’d lived since graduation, and now come home in the wonderful flat with three bedrooms and a sunny living room in the London’s center. You got promoted last year, you have e boyfriend who loves you, your family lives only half an hour drive away, you meet your friends often – you go out and have a drink, or you simply make a picnic at the weekend when you eat and laugh and share those precious moments. You have to be happy, don’t you? But in the reality only one little thing stands on the way to your flawless happiness – the fact that you are too tired. This lovely job exhausts you and the maintenance of this delightful house as well. And sometimes you want to sleep so desperately at the weekend that the only thing that convinces you to get up is the fear of losing your friends and all your social life. Last year you went on a trip to New York and the year before you visited India, you were amazed and impressed and inspired, but you came back home even more jaded. And now you definitely don’t want an 8-hour flight and the following jetlag, you don’t want the crowds, the queues and the noise. All you need is definitely a week in Halkidiki – the most magnificent Greek peninsula.
And now you are probably asking yourself why Halkidiki? Oh, the answer is so clear that you will understand it the moment you land in Greece and get out of the airport. Halkidiki doesn’t offer you actually entertainment. It offers you endless beaches with wonderful fine sand, with beautifully blue sea, cloudless azure sky and perfect sunshine. And only there on one these beaches, you can relax, you can be at ease, you won’t have a phone connection, you won’t be able to find a Wi-Fi, and thus you will forget all your problems, you will leave the everydayness in the plane. Here you will meet the natives – the Greeks who have derived the character of those who lived in the ancient time. And you will be amazed because they are wise and loving, they have the wonderful ability to enjoy every little thing – the beautiful sunrise, the cold frappe, the tranquility of the beach visited by a very few, some time spent in the shades of the old olive tree, talking with a good old friend. And those people who have the sun and the sea in their blood will infect you with their unique jauntiness. And then, only then, you will be completely free of everything that concerned you at some moment, you will walk along the beach and you will feel it – this lovely and weird, this magical Greek timelessness. You will then go back home because as we know all good things come to an end, but you will instantly start looking for a house to rent or to buy there, in Halkidiki, because the happiness there doesn’t end.
