Following on my last post, here is a view of the little down harbour, another peaceful place to enjoy a post-dinner walk. Looking towards the own you can see Fortress Palamidi, the Venetia-build fortress up on the hill, and if you turn around you cans the venetian fortress of Bourtzi Castle, another Venetian-built fortress. It is such a lovely place to spend a few days.
Naplio is a charming little down in the Penepolese in Greece. I could spend hours wondering around the cobbled streets, looking at the wonderful old buildings and squares. It is so quiet and peaceful; I can see why it is such a popular weekend destination for the Athenians.
Another view of the beautiful Warsaw Castle at night; this time with the city walls in the foreground.
Warsaw Castle is lit up at night, and the centre of activity in the city. There are lots of restaurants where you can have a meal and a drink, or you can just wonder around the square enjoying the historic architecture.
And of course the predictable trinkets, hustlers and street performer are in abundance. So enjoy the shows, but watch your pockets closely.
This is one of those photos that I am really happy with – it made the high up a mountain in the dark at night worth it – ok it was a walk on a path up a hill, but it was at night and it was pitch dark! I would so love to get that same shot without the cranes and scaffolding, but it think it will be a few years before that is at all possible!
