Today I got off the bus, which I took to school because my bike left me, but half my shoe decided it wasn’t at the right stop and continued on its journey.

She only had sneakers to give me, and along with them came these socks with toes like gloves. I don’t think I have experienced an article of clothing that has made me this happy since I discovered scarves. Turns out loss can lead to love…

Just a short (10 minute, 80 euro cent) bus ride away is a small resort area called Ayia Apostoli. Golden beaches flanked by small peninsulas of rusty rock create an illusion of seclusion in the swarming reality of northern European sunseekers…and we manage to have our fun.
