My happy

This week's prompt in Our Beautiful World is
My happy
chosen by Ros of Mikeys Mum blog.
There are a lot of things that make me happy.
I guess having a beautiful family, a  house and a job in a peaceful country is what makes all people happy. Unfortunatley not everyone can have it all.
Doing sports, hobbies and travelling makes us happy too. Although some people are unable to do these things or can't afford them.
So here's some of
My happy
 during last week's visit of our friends Margrit and Bullent from Istanbul.
My happy is when friends are visiting...
 and we walk the sea front together....
 spotting newly married couples having their pictures taken.
 My happy is when we take friends sightseeing on a sunny day to beautiful sites in the city like
Yedi Kule...


 spotting details like this Classroom in the former prison...
 or this poppy blooming on a wall....
My happy is when we coninue our sightseeing tour to Vlatadon Monastery looking at the lovely view....

 and seeing all those gorgeously "painted" peacocks


 and stopping at Trigoniou Tower to take our picture.
 My happy is visiting the suburbs of the city under lovely weather....
like Nea Mihaniona,
 with its church

Angelohori, spotting people windsurfing....

 and having coffee at Perea,

 spotting little sparrows feeding...
 and some brave people swimming....

 and shadow and light playing games...
 My happy is visiting museums with friends like the Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art looking at art



 which can be really funny some times...
 and having the chance to buy some things at the flea market!
 My happy is having lunch with friends at our favourite place To Elliniko
 although outside it is raining cats and dogs but still it is my happy because there is no thunder or lightning!
 My happy is looking at all the treasures we bought at the Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art flea market...
books...
 pottery, glass and Easter eggs....
 and porcelain lamps....
and afterwards enjoying "our" movie "Ouzeri Tsitsanis" together with our friends and eating pistacchio baklava, my favourite!
My happy is all that and more!Hope you are enjoying life too!
Why don't you join us with what makes you happy in Our Beautiful World?

Γύρω μας υπάρχει απέραντη ομορφιά Αριάδνη αρκεί όπως εσύ να έχει τα μάτια να βλέπει και να νιώθει την ευτυχία !!
Και εσύ περνάς καλά με τους φίλους σου όπου και αν βρεθείς !!
Υπέροχα μέρη τα οποία ελπίζω να δω΄στη δεύτερη επίσκεψη στη Θεσσαλονίκη !!
ΠΟλλά φιλιά

Thanks for visiting me! Looks like a lovely outing by the sea! Love these cheerful umbrella's (near the end of the post), as well as the round tower. Have stayed for 9 days in Athens (long time ago), so I know about baklava - never enough:):) Where was this, Ariadne?

Hello Ariadne, my profile pic won't show up here, because I have a wordpress blog!
Yesterday I gave you a comment back, but I see it didn't come through.
Love the umbrellas near the end and the baklava - after we spent one of our anniversaries in Athens for 9 days, I love the Greek food! So much air in your photos:) Have a great week!
