Grandma's restaurant :: Liostasi hotel & spa (Ios)

Grandma's restaurant, Liostasi hotel & spa (Ios, Greece). Where to eat in Ios. Best restaurants in Ios. Ios island restaurants.

"Grandma's" restaurant, which is a part of "Liostasi hotel & spa", is one of the places on the island of Ios, that is generously recommended to the tourists, especially when it comes to dinner. Actually, exclusively when it comes to dinner as the restaurant works after 7pm...
I'm not going to lie to you and recommend something that I don't know, because I haven't tried anything from the restaurant- I rarely eat at night. But since "Grandma's" is located within the hotel where we stayed and it's the only place where you can eat in the hotel, there are other options. In the morning the breakfast is served here (more about that in this post). And up to 7pm there is another menu based on the lighter meals which can be served to hotel guests, so many people decide to have a lunch here, especially when they spend the day by the pool. For example two times in the late afternoon I ordered my favorite food- grilled eggplants for lunch (I know I know, for the people that's not a lunch but appetizer, yet for me it's a meal).
Anyway, I wanted to show you the look of the restaurant before opening at 7pm, while it's still lit by the sun that slowly sinks behind the horizon...
...

"Grandma's" restoran, koji je deo "Liostasi hotel & spa", je jedno od mesta na ostrvu Ios koje se velikodusno preporucuje turistima, narocito kada je vecera u pitanju. Zapravo i jedino kada je vecera u pitanju jer restoran radi tek nakon 19h...
Necu vas lagati i preporucivati nesto sto ne znam, jer ja nista probala nisam iz restorana- retko kad jedem uvece. Ali s obzirom da se "Grandma's" nalazi u okviru hotela u kojem smo odsedali i da je to jedino mesto gde se u hotelu obeduje, postojale su i druge opcije. Ujutru se recimo ovde sluzi dorucak (vise o tome u ovom postu). I sve do 19h casova postoji drugi jelovnik koji se bazira na laksim jelima koja se mogu servirati gostima hotela, te se mnogi odlucuju da rucaju ovde narocito kada provode dan pored bazena. Ja sam recimo dva puta u kasnim podnevnim casovima rucala moje omiljeno jelo- grilovane patlidzane (znam znam, to za mnoge nije rucak vec predjelo, ali za mene je obrok). 
Elem htela sam da vam pokazem kako restoran izgleda pred samo otvaranje u 19h, dok je jos obasjan suncem koje polako tone iza horizonta...

Swimming pool :: Liostasi hotel & spa (Ios)

Liostasi hotel & spa (Ios, Greece), main swimming pool . Best hotels in Ios. Luxury hotels in Ios. Honeymoon hotels in Greece. Where to stay in Ios.

It seems to me that nowadays pools in all the best hotels in the world are the exquisite attraction, and each is indeed wonderful in its own way! Quite often the look of the pool is also one of the major factors when deciding which hotel you will book (I know that's the case with me), especially during the summer holidays...
"Liostasi hotel & spa" has a pool that is suitable both for adults and children. Around the pool there are wooden chairs with chic black cushions and black umbrellas. There are additional wooden chairs that are usually a favorite place for watching the sunset. And for extra refreshment there is always a pool bar but these photos I'll show you another time... And today you can see what the hotel pool looks like!
...

Cini mi se da su u danasnje vreme bazeni svih boljih hotela u svetu izuzetna atrakcija, i svaki je zaista divan na svoj nacin! Vrlo cesto izgled bazena je takodje jedan od glavnih faktora kada odlucujete za koji cete se hotel opredeliti (znam da je to sa mnom slucaj), narocito tokom letnjeg odmora...
"Liostasi hotel & spa" ima bazen koji je prilagodjen i odraslima i deci. Oko bazena su rasporedjene drvene lezaljke sa sik crnim jastucima i crnim suncobranima. Postoje i dodatne drvene stolice koje su obicno omiljeno mesto za posmatranje zalaska sunca. A za dodatno osvezenje uvek je tu pool bar cije cu vam slike pokazati drugi put... A danas pogledajte kako izgleda hotelski bazen!

Liostasi suite sharing pool (room 56) at Liostasi hotel & spa (Ios, Greece). Best hotels in Ios. Honeymoon hotels in Greece. Luxury hotels in Ios.

After a three-day stay in Santorini, we went back to Ios and of course once again chose "Liostasi hotel & spa". In this apartment, which is the room number 56, we spent only one night, but even that was enough to take some photos for the blog...;)
"Liostasi suite" (just like "Deluxe suite" which I have already written about), is a two level suite with a sea view. Together with the other five suites on two levels it shares the private pool (more on that here)...
See below the detailed description and look of the whole "Liostasi" suite...
...

Nakon trodnevnog boravka na Santoriniju, vratili smo se na Ios i naravno ponovo se odlucili za "Liostasi hotel & spa". U ovom apartmanu tj sobi broj 56 smo proveli samo jedno vece, ali i to je bilo dovoljno da prikupim neke slicice za blog...;)
"Liostasi suite" (kao i "Deluxe suite" o kojem sam vec pisala) je apartman na dva nivoa sa pogledom na more. Zajedno za ostalih pet apartmana na 2 nivoa deli privatan bazen (vise o tome ovde)...
Pogledajte u nastavku detaljan opis i izgled citavog "Liostasi" apartmana...

Mylopotas beach (Ios) + Far Out beach club

Mylopotas beach in Ios. Best beaches in Ios. Top 10 beaches in Europe. Best beaches in Greece.

Mylopotas beach is by far the most famous beach on the whole island of Ios! Many people even consider that it's one of the top 10 beaches in Europe. It is about 1km long and 2km away from the capital Chora. It has the shape of a horseshoe, a delightful sand and crystal clear water.
The beach is well organized from its beginning till the end, with numerous sunbeds and umbrellas. This of course means that you'll find a lot of cafes, bars, taverns and restaurants. One of these places is "Far Out" beach club which is always crowded since this bar is only a small part of the whole complex "Far Out" (hotel, hostel, villas, camping...)!
...

Milopotas plaza je ubedljivo najpoznatija plaza ostrva Ios! Cak je mnogi smatraju i jednom od 10 najboljih plaza Evrope. Duga je oko 1km i udaljena neka 2km od glavnog grada Hore. Ima oblik potkovice, divan pesak i kristalno cistu vodu.
Plaza je odlicno organizovana citavom svojom duzinom, sa bezbroj lezaljki i suncobrana. To naravno znaci da cete ovde naici na brojne kafice, barove, taverne i restorane. Jedno od takvih mesta je i "Far Out" beach club koji je uvek krcat s obzirom da je ovaj bar samo jedan deo citavog kompleksa "Far Out" (hotel, hostel, vile, kamping...)!

Ios island :: Random beauty (part 2)

Ios island, Greece. Natural beauty of Ios island. What to see in Ios. Visit Ios.Chora in Ios.
Chora

Archaeological excavations show that Ios was inhabited since the early Cyclades period (3200-2000 BC), which is actually a period that is known worldwide as the early Bronze Age. The best-known site on the island is Skarkos, where they found the remains of buildings that were reaching up to 3m in height, numerous pottery and tools made ​​of metal, stone and bone.
Another interesting fact is that Homer's mother was from Ios, even the tradition claims that Homer himself was buried here. Physical evidence for this claim does not exist, but the locals proudly show one tomb dedicated to Homer, which is located in the north of the island in the ancient city named Plakotos...
* If you missed the first part of the story about Ios, see "Ios island :: Random beauty (part 1)"...
...

Arheoloska iskopavanja pokazuju da je Ios bio naseljen jos od ranog Kikladskog perioda (3200-2000 p.n.e.), sto je zapravo period koji je u svetu poznat kao rano bronzano doba. Najpoznatije nalaziste na ostrvu je Skarkos, gde su pronadjeni ostaci zgrada koje su dosezale i do 3m u visinu, brojna grncarija i orudje izradjeno od metala, kamena i kosti. 
Jos jedna zanimljivost je i ta da Homerova majka vodi poreklo sa ovog ostrva, cak je i prema nekim tvrdnjama i sam Homer sahranjen ovde. Fizicki dokazi za tu tvrdnju ne postoje, ali lokalci sa ponosom pokazuju grobnicu posvecenu Homeru koja se nalazi na severu ostrva u antickom gradu pod imenom Plakotos...

Good morning my beautiful! Here I am writing to you again from Greece. I was ten days in Serbia and came back with a flu (and I thought it would skip me)...:( Luckily today I feel better than yesterday, but I'll stay home all day. It would be wise to settle down a bit, because in the last two days ago I was "moving" a lot. On Friday I got up at 6am, at 10:45am I had a flight from Belgrade to Rome, at 2:50pm flight from Rome to Athens, and I came to Athens with a delay around 6pm. We slept over in Athens, did what we had to do there, and we arrived home around 8pm last night. This morning I woke up at 6am... Now that I think better, my body is a miracle!!
Anyway, here are some photos that I was sharing on Instagram this week. And in the case you missed something on the blog these days, you have all the links in this post! Enjoy your Sunday!
...

Dobro jutro lepi moji! Evo me pisem vam ponovo iz Grcke. Bila sam desetak dana u Srbiji i vratila se sa prehladom (a mislila sam da ce me zaobici)...:( Srecom danas mi je bolje nego juce, ali cu ostati kuci citav dan. Pametnije je da se malo skrasim, jer u poslednja dva dana nisam mirovala. U petak sam ustala u 6h, u 10:45 sam imala let iz Beograda za Rim, u 14:50 let iz Rima za Atinu, i dosla sam u Atinu sa zakasnjenjem oko 18h. Prespavali smo u Atini, odradili sta smo imali tamo i stigli kuci oko 20h sinoc. Jutros sam se probudila u 6h... Kad bolje razmislim, moj organizam je cudo!!
Elem, evo nekih slicica koje sam delila preko Instagrama ove nedelje. A u slucaju da ste preskocili nesto na blogu ovih dana, imate sve linkove u ovom postu! Uzivajte u danasnjem danu!!

JOJO beach bar + CHILLI beach bar (Perivolos, Santorini)

Jojo summer beach bar in Perivolos beach in Santorini. Best beach bars in Santorini. Best beach (beaches) in Santorini.

Perivolos beach is located in the south of Santorini, between Vlihada and Perissa. Extremely organized beach, with a large number of bars, cafes and tavernas. The winds that blow often make playful and stronger waves, which is great for the lovers of water sports! The water is clear and transparent, and the ground is a combination of fine gravel and sand in a dark gray (almost black) color. Therefore, on this beach, you can not make even one step without slippers because you will burn your beautiful feet, and I'm not joking at all.
We only had two days to go to the beach. The first day we chose "Chilli" bar since we were going there so many times. The other day we decided to go to "JoJo" bar which is located next to "Chilli", and that's a super cool place as well! These two beach bars are my recommendations if you find yourself on Perivolos beach, and below you can see how each of them looks like!!
...

Perivolos plaza se nalazi na jugu Santorinija, izmedju Vlihade i Perise. Izuzetno organizovana plaza, sa velikim brojem barova, kafica i taverni. Vetrovi koji duvaju cesto prave nestasne i snaznije talase, sto je odlicno za ljubitelje sportova na vodi! Voda je cista i prozirna, a podloga je kombinacija sitnog sljunka i peska tamno sive (skoro crne) boje. Zato na ovoj plazi ne mozete ni korak napraviti bez papuca jer cete opeci vasa lepa i negovana stopala, i nimalo se ne salim.
Mi smo samo dva dana imali za odlazak na plazu. Prvi dan smo se odlucili za "Chilli" bar jer smo tu poslednjih godina isli. A drugi dan smo izabrali "JoJo" bar koji se nalazi odmah pored "Chilli"-ja, i koji je takodje super mesto! Eto ta dva beach bara su moja preporuka ukoliko se nadjete na Perivolos plazi, a u nastavku pogledajte kako svaki od njih izgleda!!

Aqua Luxury Suites (Imerovigli): Private deck with outdoor jacuzzi/pool

Aqua Luxury Suites hotel, Imerovigli, Santorini, executive deck with private pool/jacuzzi. Luxury hotels in Santorini. Honeymoon hotels in Santorini. Where to stay in Santorini.

Yesterday I showed you the pictures (check here) of the interior of executive suite in "Aqua Luxury Suites" hotel, and now you can see what it looks like what they call the "private deck"!
The outer space of 45m2 is actually a big private balcony that includes a small pool/jacuzzi, 2 sunbeds (plus umbrella), two armchairs, as well as the terrace with a table where we liked to have a breakfast. It has a wonderful view of the sea and the caldera, and the sun is shinning here from 9am to about 6pm.
I think this is definitely the best part, and the main factor which motivates people to actually book the executive suite! I am even sure that many think of the idea of sleeping outside!:)
...

Juce sam vam pokazala slike (vidite ovde) unutrasnjosti executive apartmana u "Aqua Luxury Suites" hotelu, a danas mozete videti kako izgleda ono sto oni zovu "private deck"!
Ovaj spoljasnji prostor povrsine 45m2 je zapravo veliki privatni balkon koji obuhvata manji bazen/djakuzi, 2 lezaljke za sunce (plus suncobran), dve vece stolice/fotelje, kao i terasicu sa stolom gde smo mi voleli da doruckujemo. Ima divan pogled na more i kalderu, a sunce obasjava citav prostor od 9h ujutru do nekih 18h.
Mislim da je ovo definitivno najbolji deo i nesto zbog cega se ljudi i zapravo odlucuju za smestaj u executive apartmanu! Cak sam sigurna da mnogima pada na pamet ideja da spavaju napolju!:)

Aqua Luxury Suites (Imerovigli): Executive suite (inside look)

Aqua luxury suites, executive suite (Imerovigli, Santorini). Luxury hotels in Santorini. Honeymoon hotels in Santorini. Where to stay in Santorini.

"Aqua Luxury Suites" is a boutique hotel with five-stars, located in Imerovigli (in my opinion, Imerovigli and Oia offer the best accommodations in Santorini). The hotel consists of three complexes (main complex, complex B and complex C) which are close, and has a total of 10 suites. Almost all suites have sea view as well as the view at caldera and the volcano.
At a time when we decided to go, Santorini was crowded and all accommodation facilities were full. The only thing we found was the executive suite in "Aqua Luxury Suite" hotel, which is the room number 1 because it's on the highest point or better to say at the beginning of the main complex. The interior of this apartment occupies an area of 25m2 and consists of a bedroom with a very comfortable king-size bed (there is also a sofa for sitting) and a bathroom.
Today I share with you pictures of the interior of the apartment, and the rest (private deck with pool and terrace) you will see in the coming posts!:)
...

"Aqua Luxury Suites" je hotel "boutique" tipa sa pet zvezdica koji se nalazi u mestu Imerovigli (po mom misljenju Imerovigli i Oia nude najbolji smestaj na Santoriniju). Hotel se sastoji iz 3 kompleksa (glavni kompleks, kompleks B i kompleks C) koji su blizu, i ukupno raspolaze sa 10 apartmana. Skoro svi apartmani imaju pogled na more, kao i pogled na kalderu i vulkan.
U vreme kad smo mi odlucili da idemo, Santorini je bio krcat i svi smestajni kapaciteti su bili popunjeni. Jedino sto smo pronasli je bio executive suite u "Aqua Luxury Suites" hotelu, odnosno soba broj 1 jer se nalazi na najvisoj tacki tj odmah na pocetku glavnog kompleksa. Unutrasnjost ovog apartmana zauzima povrsinu od 25m2, i sastoji se od spavace sobe sa izuzetno udobnim bracnim krevetom (tu je i sofa za sedenje) i kupatila.
Danas sa vama delim slike unutrasnjeg izgleda apartmana, a ostatak tj. privatan bazen i terasu cete videti u narednim postovima!:)

Santorini :: Random Beauty (part 1)

Imerovigli in Santorini, natural beauty, luxury travel destinations in Greece. Greek island.

No matter how many times they visited Santorini, people always remain stunned in front of the "imperfect beauty" of this island of volcanic origin. I'm no exception. This year we were fourth time in Santorini (although only 2-3 days), yet I always find something that fascinates me and makes me pull out my camera in order to capture that moment...
A lot of things I've written about the island (you can find everything in the blog archive), I shared a lot of pictures so far, but it seems to me that it's never enough, because Santorini I always see with different eyes... or I'm just emotionally attached to the island!;)
...

Koliko kod puta posecivali Santorini, ljudi uvek ostaju zapanjeni pred "nesavrsenom lepotom" ovog ostrva vulkanskog porekla. Ni ja nisam izuzetak. Iako smo ove godine cetvrti put bili na Santoriniju (doduse samo 2,3 dana), uvek pronalazim nesto sto me fascinira i tera da izvucem kameru kako bih uslikala taj trenutak...
Puno toga sam napisala o ostrvu (mozete sve pronaci u blog arhivi), puno slika sam podelila do sada, ali cini mi se da nikad nije dovoljno, jer Santorini uvek vidim drugim ocima... a mozda sam samo emotivno vezana za ostrvo!;)

Koumbara beach (Ios) & Koumbara taverna

Koumbara taverna in Ios, offering fresh fish and sea food. Great design, close to Koumbara beach.

Koumbara beach is located some 3km from the port, and it can be reached by car/motorbike, by bus or you can simply walk till there (about a half hour walk from the harbor). It's about 300m long and very nicely organized, with golden sand and shallow water. Even dough it's looking at the port of Ios, you hear no noise...
Exactly at the beginning of the beach there is a taverna with the same name "Koumbara" whose design perfectly fits into the environment. Milky white chairs and tables, snow-white walls, warm shades of cane and wooden details, and all that embellished with some decorative elements in the marine-style: shells, small wooden boats, starfish...
...

Koumbara plaza se nalazi neka 3km od luke, i do nje se moze doci i kolima/motorom, i autobusom ali i peske (nekih pola sata hoda od luke). Duga je oko 300m, sa peskom zlatne boje, i vrlo lepo organizovana. Iako gleda na luku Iosa, do nje ne dopire buka...
Odmah na pocetku plaze nalazi se i istoimena taverna "Koumbara" ciji se dizajn tj izgled savrseno uklapa u okruzenje. Mlecno bele stolice i stolovi, snezno beli zidovi, tople nijanse trske i detalja od drveta, a sve to ukraseno dekorativnim elementima u morskom stilu: skoljke, drveni brodici, morske zvezde...

Late afternoon by the pool...


Sometime after 6pm all hotel guests, who until that moment have been lying on sunbeds, enthusiastically change their sits and this time they pick the wooden chairs that are positioned on the other end of the pool. Golden sunlight gently warms their faces and pours over the surface of the pool giving a heavenly blue tint to the water which is visible only in the evening hours. In the hands guests are holding or colorful cocktails or cameras (if not there are always the mobile phones). And then the "ritual" of watching the sunset may begin...
...

Negde nakon 18h svi gosti hotela, koji su do tog trenutka lezali na lezaljkama, entuzijasticno menjaju svoje mesto sedenja i ovoga puta biraju drvene stolice koje se nalaze na drugom kraju bazena. Zlatna sunceva svetlost im blago greje lica i preliva se po povrsini bazena dajuci nebesko plavu nijansu vodi tek u vecernjim casovima. Gosti u rukama drze ili raznobojne koktele ili kamere za fotografisanje (u pomoc priskacu i mobilni telefoni). I tada pocinje ritualno cekanje zalaska sunca...

Liostasi hotel & spa :: Interior design

Liostasi hotel & spa, Ios Greece. Interior design of the hotel. Best hotels in Ios.

"Liostasi hotel & spa" is located in the town of Ios, about 6-7 minutes away from the port. It belongs to the SLH (Small Luxury Hotels of the World) hotel chain which is a guarantee for a certain uniqueness, exclusivity and luxury...
Interior design is a blend of modern and traditional, chic and rustic. A lot of refreshing white paint mixed with beige and greyish hues, unique use of wood in the details (sculptures, mirrors and picture frames, chandeliers...), with a few additions of metallic elements skillfully integrated in the whole...  
This is how the main space at the entrance of the hotel (where is a reception desk) looks like...
...

"Liostasi hotel & spa" se nalazi u samom Ios gradu, nekih 6-7 minuta udaljenosti od luke. Pripada SLH (Small Luxury Hotels of the World) hotelskom lancu sto je garancija za odredjenu unikatnost, ekskluzivnost i luksuz...
Dizajn enterijera je spoj modernog i tradicionalnog, sik i rusticnog. Dosta bele osvezavajuce boje pomesane sa bez i sivkastim nijansama, jedinstvena upotreba drveta u izradi detalja (skulpture, okviri ogledala i slika, lusteri...), sa ponekim dodacima metalnih elemenata vesto integrisanih u celinu...
Evo kako izgleda glavna prostorija na samom ulazu u hotel (gde se nalazi i recepcija)...

Manganari beach (Ios, part 1)

Manganari beach in Ios island, Greece. Best Ios beaches, golden sand, shallow water. Location for "Big blue" movie from 1988.

Manganari beach is in my opinion one of the most beautiful beaches of Ios! It is located some 23km south of the capital Chora, and needs a little more than half an hour (that much we needed with the car, almost 40min) in order to get to it due to the "curvy" road. Because of this it's not crowded during the day, as most people choose closer beaches...
The sand is golden and the water is crystal clean and fairly shallow first few meters (which is great for families with small children). It seems as if the beach is not a single unit (which you can see on the picture below), but is made ​​up of four smaller sandy parts, which only adds to the uniqueness of its natural beauty...
p.s. More on this beach you will hear in another post...
...

Manganari plaza je po mom misljenju jedna od najlepsih plaza Iosa! Nalazi se nekih 23km juzno od glavnog grada Hore, i treba malo vise od pola sata (toliko je nama trebalo kolima, skoro 40min) da bi se stiglo do nje zbog krivina na putu. Upravo zbog toga i nije krcata tokom dana, jer vecina ljudi bira plaze do kojih se brze stize...
Pesak je zlatne boje, a voda kristalno cista i prilicno plitka prvih nekoliko metara (sto je odlicno za porodice sa malom decom). Cini se kao da plaza nije jedna celina (sto mozete videti na slici ispod), vec je sastavljena iz cetiri manjih pescanih delova, sto samo doprinosi jedinstvenosti njene prirodne lepote...
p.s. Vise o ovoj plazi cucete u drugom postu...

Ios island :: Random beauty (part 1)

Ios island in Greece, natural beauty. Best in Ios!

Ios is an island in the Aegean Sea that belongs to the Cyclades, and is located halfway between Naxos and Santorini. It has an area of approximately 109km2, which makes it bigger than Santorini, but not as populated...
As with most Cyclades islands, the main city carries the name Chora. Painted in white, with narrow cobbled streets that have the form of the stairs. A lot of cafes, bars and pubs, restaurants and taverns, some boutiques and souvenir shops. But attention, mostly all work after 6-7pm... And why? Because Ios is a "party island", and everything is open till the early (not to say late!) morning hours in peak season. That's why Chora is empty during the day, you don't see any tourists or locals, not a soul, people sleep in their rooms... or they simply decided to continue to party at the beach...
...

Ios je ostrvo u Egejskom moru koje pripada Kikladima, i nalazi se na pola puta izmedju Naksosa i Santorinija. Povrsine je oko 109km2, sto ga cini vecim od Santorinija, ali ne i naseljenijim...
Kao i kod vecine kikladskih ostrva, glavni grad nosi ime Chora (Hora). Okrecen u belo, sa uskim kaldrmisanim ulicama stepenicaste forme, po kojima su "rasuti" kafici, barovi i pabovi, restorani i taverne, poneki butici i prodavnice suvenira. Ali paznja, vecinom sve radi nakon 18-19h... A zasto? Zato sto je Ios "ostrvo zabave", i sve je otvoreno do ranih (da ne kazem kasnih!) jutarnjih casova u glavnoj sezoni. Tako da je Hora prazna tokom dana, ne vidite ni turiste ni lokalce, nema zive duse, ljudi spavaju u svojim sobama... ili su prosto odlucili da nastave zabavu na plazi...

Morning everybody! After several days of rain and cold weather earlier this week, the last two or three days we enjoy the sunny weather and beautiful autumn days. Which makes me very happy because the sun is more than needed these days when some things in my life look "quite dark"... But it's gonna be ok, this is an opportunity to learn, because "nothing in the life is happening to us, but for us"...
Have a great day !! See you tomorrow with new travel adventures!;)
p.s. Throughout the month of October, I'll focus more on posts related to travel, because I have a lot of good material to share with you! And in November we start with the usual concept! I hope you will like this small and short-change...
...

'Jutro svima! Posle nekoliko dana kise i hladnoce pocetkom ove nedelje, u poslednja dva-tri dana uzivamo u suncanom vremenu i divnim jesenjim danima. Sto me izuzetno cini srecnom jer mi je sunce i vise nego potrebno ovih dana, kada su neke stvari u mom zivotu naizgled "mracne"... Ali bice sve ok, ovo je prilika za ucenje, jer "nista se u zivotu ne desava nama, vec zbog nas"...
Zelim vam divan dan!! Vidimo se sutra sa novim putopisima!;)
p.s. Tokom citavog oktobra meseca fokusiracu se vise na postove vezane za putovanja, jer imam dosta lepog materijala da podelim sa vama! A od novembra krecemo sa uobicajenim konceptom! Nadam se da ce vam se svideti ova mala i kratkotrajna promena...

Breakfast time at Liostasi hotel & spa

Liostasi hotel & spa (Ios, Greece), breakfast by the pool. Best hotels in Ios. Luxury hotels in Ios.

Between 9am and 9:30 in the morning... We're eating our breakfast and watching the sea in the distance, and in front of us stretches calm water in the pool... Clear sky without clouds says it's gonna be a nice and sunny day... And I'm happy if they have grilled eggplants for the breakfast, which I could eat every day until I start to look like an eggplant...:D If not then there is an omelet with vegetables, and it's enough! I'm already going in the direction of towels and straight to the beach or by the pool... Just to check if my babe finished with his morning coffee.........
...

Izmedju 9h i 9:30 je ujutru... Doruckujemo i gledamo na more u daljini a ispred nas se prostire mirna voda u bazenu... Cisto nebo bez oblaka kaze da ce biti lep i suncan dan... A ja sam srecna ako za dorucak imaju peceni plavi patlidzan, to bih mogla jesti svaki dan dok se i sama ne pretvorim u patlidzan...:D Ako ne onda je tu omlet sa povrcem, i meni je dosta! Vec krecem po peskire i pravac na plazu, ili pored bazena... Samo da proverim da li je moj dragi zavrsio sa svojom jutarnjom kafom.........

Kalamos beach (Ios)

Kalamos beach in Ios. Best beaches in Ios. Ios island in Greece.
my new girlfriend :)
moja nova drugarica :)

On the eastern side of Ios island is located Kalamos beach, surrounded by the rocks that are randomly decorated with olive and almond trees. Untouched nature, peace and quiet, crystal clear waters, super soft golden sand. Disorganized in terms of tourism, with no bars and sunbeds, which in this case may be an advantage...
Only "difficulty" is how to get to this beach. Due to the somewhat demanding part of the road that is very bumpy and dusty, as the vehicle is best to use a jeep or four-wheel motorcycles which can be rented in the town...
...

Na istocnoj strani ostrva Ios nalazi se Kalamos plaza, okruzena stenama koje su ponegde ukrasene stablima masline i badema. Netaknuta priroda, mir i tisina, kristalno cista voda, zlatan pesak u koji noga uranja. Neorganizovana u turistickom smislu, bez barova i lezaljki, sto u ovom slucaju moze biti i prednost...
Jedina "poteskoca" jeste kako doci do ove plaze. Zbog pomalo zahtevnog dela puta koji je izuzetno neravan i prasnjav, kao prevozno sredstvo najbolje je koristiti dzip ili motore na cetiri tocka koji se mogu iznajmiti u gradu...

Deluxe suite (room 55) :: Liostasi hotel & spa (Ios)

Deluxe suite sharing pool (room 55) in Liostasi hotel & spa (Ios Greece). Best hotels in Ios. Honeymoon hotels in Greece. Luxury hotels in Ios.

This was our first suite in "Liostasi hotel & spa". Also the suite where we stayed the longest, before we started changing the rooms (4 in total) because of our stubborn desire to extend the stay despite the overbooking... And so we began with the number 55...
"Deluxe suite" is the apartment of two levels with outdoor private "lounge" space. One day we also spent in the room number 54 which belongs to the same type of suite and it totally looks the same as the room 55 (the only difference that I found was a wooden table in the ground floor which had a slightly different form)... See below the detailed description and look of the whole "Deluxe" suite...
...

Ovo je bio nas prvi apartman u "Liostasi hotel & spa". Takodje i apartman gde smo ostali najvise dana, pre nego sto smo poceli da menjamo sobe (4 ukupno) zbog nase tvrdoglave zelje da produzimo boravak uprkos prebukiranosti hotela... I tako smo krenuli sa brojem 55...
"Deluxe suite" je apartman iz dva nivoa sa spoljasnjim privatnim "lounge" prostorom. Jedan dan smo takodje proveli i u sobi broj 54 koja pripada istom tipu apartmana i potpuno je istog izgleda kao i soba 55 (jedina razlika koju sam ja pronasla je drveni sto u donjem delu koji je malo drugacijeg oblika)... Pogledajte u nastavku detaljan opis i izgled citavog "Deluxe" apartmana...

Drakos taverna (Mylopotas beach, Ios)

Drakos taverna, Mylopotas beach, Ios. Drakos fish taverna. Best restaurants in Ios. Best tavernas in Ios. Where to eat in Ios.

I share these pictures with you, not because of the food, but because of the extraordinary beauty of the environment that surrounds the tavern called "Drakos". Located at the end of Mylopotas beach, which is about 5min away from the capital Chora, at the perfect place where you can see the whole beach...
...

Delim ove slike sa vama ne zbog hrane, vec zbog izuzetne lepote okruzenja taverne pod imenom "Drakos". Locirana na kraju Milopotas plaze koja je nekih 5min udaljena od glavnog grada Hore, i to na savrsenom mestu odakle se pruza pogled na citavu plazu....

First afternoon in Ios: by the private pool (Liostasi hotel)

Liostasi hotel & spa (Ios, Greece), private sharing pool. Best hotels in Ios. Luxury hotels in Ios. Honeymoon hotels in Greece.

Here we spent our first afternoon on the island of Ios. We arrived around 3pm and all the sun loungers by the main hotel's pool were busy. Fortunately, there was another option- private pool that is allowed only to the guests of "Liostasi" hotel who are staying in suites on two levels, and there are a total of six. We left our suitcases, put swimsuits, and until the evening we were peacefully soaking up the sun by the pool, surrounded by the beauty of the nature...
...

Ovde smo proveli nase prvo popodne na ostrvu Ios. Stigli smo oko 15h te su sve lezaljke pored glavnog hotelskog bazena bile zauzete. Srecom postojala je jos jedna opcija- privatan bazen koji je namenjen samo gostima hotela "Liostasi" koji odsedaju u apartmanima na dva nivoa, a njih je ukupno sest. Ostavili smo kofere, obukli kupaci i sve do veceri upijali sunce pored ovog bazena, okruzeni mirom i lepotom prirode...

Avon Anew Clinical Pro: Face cream + Eye cream

Avon Anew Clinical: PRO line corrector hydrating cream and Eye lift PRO. Best skincare from Avon.

There are skincare products that I personally buy, and there are products that I receive. The fact is that I like to try out different things, 'cause my skin and my age still permit me to explore. Additional excuse is working on the blog category called "beauty"...:)
For example these two products from Avon's "Anew Clinical" line I got as a gift: "PRO Line corrector hydrating cream" and "Eye Lift PRO" dual eye cream.
...

Postoje proizvodi za negu lica koje ja licno kupujem, i postoje proizvodi koje dobijam. Cinjenica je da volim sve da isprobam, jer mi jos uvek moja koza i godine starosti to dozvoljavaju. Dodatni izgovor je popunjavanje rubrike "lepota" na blogu...:) 
Eto recimo ova dva proizvoda iz Avon-ove "Anew Clinical" linije sam dobila na poklon. Radi se o "PRO Hidrantnoj kremi za korekciju bora" i "Eye lift PRO" dualnoj kremi za oci.

Avon Anew Clinical: PRO line corrector hydrating cream and Eye lift PRO. Best skincare from Avon.

"PRO Line corrector hydrating cream" comes in the packaging of 30ml and has a medium density. It contains A-F33 (amino-fill 33), which releases the collagen and stimulates its production, and thereby reduces small wrinkles and lines (I say small because there is no magic formula that will erase every wrinkle- no lies here). Therefore it protects the collagen and elastin, but at the same time it provides more hydration to the skin.
...

"PRO Hidrantna krema za korekciju bora" dolazi u pakovanju od 30ml i srednje je gustine. Sadrzi A-F33 tj amino-fill 33, koji oslobadja kolagen te podstice njegovu proizvodnju, i samim tim redukuje manje bore i linije (kazem manje jer ne postoji carobna formula koja ce izbrisati svaku boru, da se ne zavaravamo). Dakle stiti kolagen kao i elastin, ali u isto vreme obezbedjuje kozi i vise hidratacije.
