Crossing the Bridges …


 

Out of sight but not out of mind …

Loose thoughts while crossing the bridges … and missing the contact I had with my WP friends …

How ironic ! Bridges usually connect people and bring them together …

 

Cossing the Bridges

Crossing the Bridges

Towers and Thick Stone Walls

Towering above me … Internet Connection beyond me …

 

Away from Athens,I miss all my wonderful WordPress friends and their brilliant posts …

I have a very poor Internet connection and it takes hours to get the links 😦 😦 😦

 

See you soon,and visit your new work ; take great care for now and enjoy your Sunday !!!

β˜†ε½‘β˜…ε½‘Β Β ε½‘β˜†ε½‘β˜…ε½‘ Β Β  Happy SundayΒ Β  ε½‘β˜†ε½‘β˜…ε½‘ε½‘β˜†ε½‘β˜…

Rosy Promises

Just a quick post to tell you that you are in my thoughts and I am looking forward to soon visiting your new work *===***===*

  1. Where is the bridge in the top photo, Doda? You are right that the bridge was ironic in this situation as it kept you apart from WP friends rather than close to them! I hope you are having a nice day πŸ™‚

    • it’s Rio-Antirrio bridge which crosses the Gulf of Corinth and connects Peloponnese to the mainland Greece,the Solid Greece.Thanks for appreciating my post and the oximoron of the situation …

    • Yes,Su,it was all fine except for the poor internet connection which made you feel you were cut off from the world.When you decide yourself to stay away from any Internet activities,it’s different,absolutely different and you enjoy it ; thank you so much for coming by,my dear friend ! Sending love β™₯β™₯β™₯ and hugs your way,

        • Hi there dear Su ! Isn’t it ! Anything gets more annoying when it is imposed;you’re absolutely right.When I’m on hols and especially long summer hols,it is impossible to keep things on track and especially to be consistent with my contacts in the social nets I participate.
          Anyway,now I feel happy I’m back with you again at least for the moment.Summer is approaching and sooner or later I’ll be on and off ,hope because I’ll decide it …
          Loved the communication we had together,dear Su !
          Stay well and have a most wonderful day ! Doda πŸ™‚ xoxoxo

    • Hi dear Konstantina ! I feel so glad you came by ! Actually,we were on a flying visit to your fascinating city and soon left for Peloponnese again before coming back to Athens.When duty calls you,you have to be on the go all the time.I would love to meet you too.It would be great.Wouldn’t it ? !!! There will be a next time for sure and then I’ll let you know.Thessaloniki is such a remarkable and cosmopolitan city!
      When there,we usually stay in Electra Palace or Macedonia Palace which,thank God,it re-opened.
      Big hugs and love β™₯ to you, Doda πŸ™‚

          • We arrived from italy into Patras and took the train to Athens, visited a few Islands by boat, and delphi by bus. Then back on the train in Athens to make a circle around the Pelopponese, visiting Mycenae, Sparta, Kalamata (lol for the olives), and Olympia and finally back to Patras. It was an incredible, wonderful journey and gives me big smiles remembering it still. Blow a kiss to the wind of Hellas for me, dear Doda! I believe there must be some Greek in my DNA, I feel it strongly! β™₯β™₯β™₯ ;^)))

I have never experienced such a situation before and I ‘m thinking that it was something it had to do with the elections.Perhaps they were using all the lines to be connected with all the election centres and get the results faster.
