Here is a short post about my small beach vacation with friends to the island of Tassos in Northern Greece, which adds quite a few new features to my blog. Tassos is a very popular weekend escape for Bulgarians as it is a driving distance away from Sofia, and is as pretty as any of the other iconic Greek islands (minus the usual tourist crowds). You can see the typical green-blue waters of the Aegean Sea on the top photo made near Golden Beach, with the accidentally matching color of the bucket of a local fisherman carrying his bait. The first new feature is the accompanying music (the vacation song we were listening to during the hours of drive from Sofia and back), which is the first instance here of the typical Bulgarian “pop-folk” music or “chalga” that is not too different from its other Balkan equivalents in Greece, Turkey, and Serbia. The second novelty is the new logo on my photos, hopefully cooler than the old one that you can see in some of my old posts. And the third novelty is the appearance of a “male model” after some of my friends criticized me for the lack of guys on the blog. Below you can see one of my friends, Dimo, on a night out in the Tassos capital, Limenas, posing in front of a yoghurt shop with his brand new shades. Beach during the day and party at night, that’s what vacation is about.
