Summer Vacations - Cephalonia Island

Summer 2013 and I took a lovely 5 day trip in Cephalonia island, Greece, in which I saw a lot of the natural beauty that the island has to offer.

Apart from an awkward daily encounter with bees and wasps, I got to travel in almost the entire part of the island and many of the buildings on the north part were very much influenced by the Venetians.

Also got to see some amazing handmade jewellery that I'm so fond of, made out of gold, silver, emerald, coral and all kind of precious stones!

Finally at the end of all, I met a Serbian printmaking artist called Dragisa Cosic. He was selling his art on a street of Argostoli village and I must say I was amazed by the detail of his craft. Sadly he barely gets by with little money and no recognition.. Nevertheless he said he only has what he needs.
