Welcome to A Carnival of Style, Hideaway by Chelsea Louloudi!

hideaway_006

The first place I landed was at the Cinema.

hideaway_004

Grab your tickets at the box office…

hideaway_005

Buy some snacks for the film…

hideaway_002

And a beverage from the bar…

hideaway_003

Relax until it’s time to go in…

hideaway_001

Take a seat to enjoy the movie!

hideaway_007

Outside the cinema is a rather scary clown…

hideaway_008

Guarding a row of intresting huts.

hideaway_009

More snacks are available…

hideaway_010

On the way to a quaint vardo (gypsy caravan).

hideaway_011

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 😦

hideaway_012

And then I came to the harbour.

hideaway_013

A very impressive vessel is docked there.

hideaway_015

And the obligatory market area around the docks is included.

hideaway_014

The shacks nearby and lighthouse in the distance are the perfect additions.

hideaway_016

From there I found a beautiful little archway…

hideaway_017

Leading to a castle!

hideaway_018

Naturally I had to go check it out.

hideaway_019

Through an impressive doorway…

hideaway_020

Was a large, comfy living room.

hideaway_021

Going out through the garden…

hideaway_022

Led me to the lighthouse I’d seen from afar earlier.

hideaway_023

Inside was an office room.

hideaway_024

Such a beautifully designed lighthouse!

hideaway_025

At the top the wind blows free as you gaze upon the beautiful sights below.

hideaway_026

After making my way back down I walked through the landscape to come across a bridge.

hideaway_027

The beautiful open landscape is lovely and relaxing.

hideaway_028

Containing a rather large house.

hideaway_029

I took some time to relax in the garden…

hideaway_030

Before venturing to the house itself.

hideaway_031

After here the bright rainforest turned to darker, swampy jungle.

hideaway_032

Another beautiful landscape.

hideaway_033

And here was another house…

hideaway_034

Though this one more suited to being on water.

hideaway_035

Making my way out of the swamp I came across a country farm with crops and animals.

hideaway_036

And a rather relaxing garden came into view.

hideaway_037

Perfect place to take a few minutes out to just breathe.

hideaway_038

The Asian influence in this area is carried to the sea too.

hideaway_039

Next I visited the old wooden church.

hideaway_040

Unlike small chapels it’s actually as big as a stone church.

hideaway_041

Through the doors…

hideaway_042

Is a rather beautiful interior, just in tact enough to still be usable

hideaway_043

Upstairs on the balcony I was pleased to find a pipe organ.

hideaway_044

And a great view of the room below, even if I had to tiptoe to see over the barrier.

hideaway_045

Upon leaving I found my way to the street of interesting shop fronts…

hideaway_049

Including a fortune teller!

hideaway_046

Lastly I paid a visit to the hotel…

hideaway_048

Booked in for the night…

hideaway_047

And grabbed a well-earned drink!

hideaway_050

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
