Hi dear friends, here I om on holiday in Corfù, Greece, and today I want to share with you the magic of a place I've just discovered.
I'm talking about a lovely, tiny island opposite the northern coast of Corfù, called Erikousa. You can read more about Erikousa here, but I can tell you now that there are about twenty people living there during the winter!
There is only one small village near the port, with two hotels, about three bars/tavernas, one doctor and one policeman!
The rest of the island is a marvellous mix of deserted sandy beaches, and cristal clear warm water.
Being here is a true dream; it's an amazing place to relax your mind and to be in touch with your true self.
I was wandering around the beach for like an hour, feeling so released and happy!
In the small village I then discovered a lovely Pop up Store by Lili Gabbiano, both a brilliant and gentle woman and a talented designer and artist, who sells handmade clothes and artcrafts (you can take a look @ www.liligabbiano.com).
She is able to capture the "spirit" of the island and put it in her work; the clean and minimalist layout of her Pop up Store, as well as her creations, have inspired me, giving me a sense of freedom through simplicity.
What do I want to share with you today? That beautiful places and art can make our day. Don't forget!
Enjoy some photos I took in Erikousa!
