MY WORLD TUESDAY: A WONDERFUL WEEKEND AND A PERFECT WEDDING (PART-1)

On Saturday, October 17th, my husband's cousin, Dimitris, got married to Thessaloniki.
His wife, Amalia, is from there.
Thessaloniki is 580 km away from Salamina.
So we decided to leave from Salamina on Friday.
I took the girls from school at 11 am and we left Salamina at 12 o'clock.
The weather was bad and the rain was heavy.



On our way to Thessaloniki, we passed by some beautiful places, like mountain Olympos and the Platamonas' s castle.



We had an hour stop for lunch and we arrived at our hotel, Avalon, at 6:30 pm.



Avalon is a great hotel, twenty minutes from the city of Thessaloniki, to Chalkidiki.








All the family gathered there.
Cousins, brothers and sisters with their kids, uncles and aunts, friends and the groom with his parents and his sister. We were 75 persons who came from far away.
You can imagine what happened the next morning at breakfast.




The fun, the teasing and the laughing.
At 11:15 am we left the hotel and we went to the Monastery of Saint John the Theologian (Αγιος Ιωάννης ο Θεολόγος) at Souroti.







We visited the grave of Elder Paisios, an Orthodox monk of Holy Mount. Athos.
A Saint of our days.





I'll wait for you next Tuesday for Part 2 and the wedding.

to see other places of our world.
