Welcome to A Carnival of Style, Hideaway by Chelsea Louloudi!
The first place I landed was at the Cinema.
Grab your tickets at the box office…
Buy some snacks for the film…
And a beverage from the bar…
Relax until it’s time to go in…
Take a seat to enjoy the movie!
Outside the cinema is a rather scary clown…
Guarding a row of intresting huts.
More snacks are available…
On the way to a quaint vardo (gypsy caravan).
The English person in me loved seeing a red phone box and red post box, even though we rarely see a red phone box anymore 😦
And then I came to the harbour.
A very impressive vessel is docked there.
And the obligatory market area around the docks is included.
The shacks nearby and lighthouse in the distance are the perfect additions.
From there I found a beautiful little archway…
Leading to a castle!
Naturally I had to go check it out.
Through an impressive doorway…
Was a large, comfy living room.
Going out through the garden…
Led me to the lighthouse I’d seen from afar earlier.
Inside was an office room.
Such a beautifully designed lighthouse!
At the top the wind blows free as you gaze upon the beautiful sights below.
After making my way back down I walked through the landscape to come across a bridge.
The beautiful open landscape is lovely and relaxing.
Containing a rather large house.
I took some time to relax in the garden…
Before venturing to the house itself.
After here the bright rainforest turned to darker, swampy jungle.
Another beautiful landscape.
And here was another house…
Though this one more suited to being on water.
Making my way out of the swamp I came across a country farm with crops and animals.
And a rather relaxing garden came into view.
Perfect place to take a few minutes out to just breathe.
The Asian influence in this area is carried to the sea too.
Next I visited the old wooden church.
Unlike small chapels it’s actually as big as a stone church.
Through the doors…
Is a rather beautiful interior, just in tact enough to still be usable
Upstairs on the balcony I was pleased to find a pipe organ.
And a great view of the room below, even if I had to tiptoe to see over the barrier.
Upon leaving I found my way to the street of interesting shop fronts…
Including a fortune teller!
Lastly I paid a visit to the hotel…
Booked in for the night…
And grabbed a well-earned drink!
Overall it’s a very enjoyable day trip! Snippets of history are preserved in a wide range of landscapes, a wonderful forgotten village. I highly recommend grabbing a friend and wandering around. Good job, Chelsea!
See you all there
