Chalkidiki, Greece - PinayFlyingHigh.com
If you ask anyone from Thessaloniki where is the best beach in the world, they will all answer (without thinking twice and probably in unison) Chalkidiki. They talk about it like it’s some sort of a paradise unknown to man and you’re not really living life if you haven’t been there yet. Speaking as an islander who grew up in a country with 7,000 islands, I think it’s pretty (but not as prett

Where I Stayed in Hua Hin: Anantara Resort and Spa Hua Hin

December 1, 2013
Anantara Resort and Spa Hua Hin, Thailand
As a birthday gift to my aunt who just turned 70, I wanted to give something special to her. Since she loves to travel as I do, I booked a 4-day stay in Anantara Resort and Spa Hua Hin in Thailand for us including my cousin. I also booked a spa treatment for her as part of the gift which she really loved! We all have never been to this seaside town of Thailand so that was a first for all of us. As I was already in

A Day In Lichnos Beach

November 1, 2013
We had only one thing in mind on our second day in Parga and that was to spend the day in a beach.

Well to tell you very honestly, I thought that the beauty that I have seen in Corfu and in Lefkada will be very hard to beat. That’

Things To Do in Parga: Be Lazy At Valtos Beach

Shore of Cape North West Hotel in Parga
After checking in at Valtos Beach Hotel, we decided to just spend the rest of the afternoon at the beach opposite the hotel. We were already in our second week of our holiday in Greece, mostly driving around and as much as I hate to admit it – I was already very tired at the time. I wasn’t feeling very adventurous that afternoon we arrived in Parga and I wasn’t really up for a drive to go to a bea

Agios Georgios Beach in Corfu
With a myriad of beaches that you can explore offering varying coastlines and scenic beauties, beach hopping in Corfu is probably what you really must do while there. Apart from the ones that I have already featured on my previous posts, here are some of the other beaches that we’ve visited. 1. Agios Stefanos With a backdrop of small rolling hills, olive groves and small village – this beach offers a s
