Parga Vacation

Parga Vacation

 It is coming …

Is that time of the year, again, the time for a vacation!!!!!!

So, I pack my bags, take Salman Rushdie`s “Satanic Verses“ with me and off I go..To Greece..again.I do not really know why I am always taking a book with me, I am never reading it anyway, not even one page.Because, despite my dreams of having a laid back vacation while I am spending the whole day sitting on a sun bed close to the sea under a umbrella reading,this is not actually happening.Instead, I will be like a dog who just got out of chains and starts running around relentlessly , sniffing with delight every new scent and barking of happiness, in my case singing “When the moon hits your eyes like a big pizza pie ..That`s amoreee..“.

I know for sure that I will be always on the move walking on the rugged shore trying to find some hidden beaches behind rocks , which will imply walking through thorny bushes ignoring the local fauna , meaning snakes which I am convincing myself that are not venomous just cute in their own special way but not fluffy. I will look for shadow under the century old olives trees talking about the meaning of life , and I will be in ecstasy seeing the most fantastic shore line having the shimmering sea with the shadow of Paxos Island lying above the surface at the horizon on one side, and the mountains sight on the other side . I will have emotions pouring out of my heart at every second while trying to preserve the images I am seeing somewhere deep in my mind, unspoiled.
I will not have the patience to read not even one line from that book , yet , I am taking it with me, because , somehow that book is part of my vacation too…
