‘Hip hip hurray!’ I felt a shadow over my lounger and lifted up my sunglasses so I could see. It was my good friend Athina with a smile on her face. ‘This is your belated birthday gift’. I was beaming. Athina had been talking non-stop about the remarkable place she would take me to for my birthday. ‘And this is not the only surprise. Just you wait.’
Athina went inside to change into her bikini and I closed my eyes. She was right: what a remarkable location. The road to the town of Vafkeri, which is where these villas are located, was so breathtaking that I could've kept driving for hours. Meandering between the green trees and magnificent views of the Nidri Sea and Scorpios island, it took me to an altitude of 500 metres. A considerable journey with steep slopes and many bends. And there they were, the stone villas Athina had told me so much about. So spacious and luxurious. Each villa is surrounded by a stone wall for plenty of privacy. While Athina was talking to the owner, I decided to install myself on a lounger by the private swimming pool. The islands off the coast were right in front of me. I turned my head and saw the mountain towns of Alexandros and Platistoma. All I could hear were birds in the trees nearby.
Apparently, I had dozed off. Athina sat on the side of my lounger and enthusiastically pointed at the jacuzzi. ‘Come, let’s go catch some bubbles!’ A great idea. I stepped into the moving water and my body warmed up immediately. Not just because of the pleasant water. Athina had prepared a bottle of champagne. ‘No bubbles without bubbly! And that’s not all. Look over there, in the sea’. I glanced at the azure blue sea and saw some white little boats floating in the clear water. ‘I arranged a boat trip by the coast with the owner for tomorrow. For your birthday. Cheers!’
