This time I won’t write about the start of the trip, travelling, etc. I am so used to that and it doesn’t come difficult to me. I get up. I go to the car, I hop on my seat and continue my nap. I often don’t feel like eating in the morning, which is good since we are taking a trip.
We didn’t go alone this time, my „grandma“. A’s mom came with us. They don’t spend as much time together, so this trip other than the fact that it is my birthday gift is also a great opportunity to catch up and enjoy in each other company. During this 9 hour trip we made a stop every few hour to drink water, take a bathroom break and maybe to eat something. On Greek and Macedonian border, we weren’t asked for any documents for me, but as every time we had every single document just in case. 🙂
As we were approaching the sea, the road was more and more zigzagged. We were listening to the music, I felt a nice relaxation in moments that are about to come.
Last winter I was in Miami, but the water was different there, huge waves were breaking on the shore and I was afraid to go in. A which was in the water a lot, she dipped me in a little bit, water was warm, but for me the tiny taste I felt from her hand was more than enough to experience the sea side.
On the other side, back home, on Danube river I was as equally not thrilled, elbows deep is as deep as I’ll go. Also water in the river is flowing and that does not seem safe, so this time in Greece I have crystal clear, smooth as a glass, warm as a jacuzzi water, if I don’t like it the problem is definitely in me! A never left the water, she would soak as much as possible, when it comes to me I am definitely not a sea dog, I can splash in a water but I like to feel land under my feet, not swimming.
Shore, sunshade, fresh water and fruit are the thing that I enjoy in for the entire day.One black guy was walking around the beach with 10 hats on his head, singing „Hakuna Matata“ and selling little whatnots. Some guys looked like him, but this one really annoyed me so I was barking at him every time he passed. Other then that I was setting up for cuddling with anyone who comes to me, oh lovely, I loved the sea shore beachy atmosphere.
We were staying in Olga suits, near the shore, so we had some trust exercises. Honestly, when she straps me on that leash I like to disobey a little bit. I know A wishes me all the happiness in the world so I carefully listened as she was saying „slowly“, „stop“, „let’s go“, „come here“, „quickly“. Even though I can forget about this game back in the city, I enjoyed every moment of the freedom and I can’t wait to do it again.
Other then Toroni, we visited Porto Caras, Neos Marmaras, Sarti, as well as some cool beaches that belong to Ethnik Beach cafe, Tiganie, Klimatarie… Orange beach and Paradisos are wonderful.
If you want to enjoy in some good sea food there is Hristos in Neos Marmaras, 5 steps in the sand and Corals near Sarti. When we travel, we can stay long at one place, we like to investigate and go everywhere, and every time A sits down I use that opportunity to take a nap. In the evening I sleep like a baby, but in the morning A wakes me up for our morning jog which we both love. We watch the sunrise on an empty beach as we chase each other until we are tired and then lay by the shore and listen to the waves. In this special moment I feel really connected with her and it is priceless.
My Birthday is on June thrid, that day is just mine, we played, she gave me a bath, we cuddled, ate and blew a candle. I adore squid and almost every sinle fruit, so I get to forget about dog food for a while.
When it comes to the beach, if you are not too loud and don’t bother other people, no one will mind you. I have heard that it is forbidden for dogs to go to beaches other than specific ones, but if you weigh lower than 8-10kg we can go almost anywhere.
That’s it from me, if I forgot something, feel free to ask me!
I wish you the best of times this summer and write to us about interesting destination you are exploring!
