Friday, 4th May, 2018
Art and music are my two true passions. Luckily, my group of friends share the same interests. All of us retirees packed off for a peaceful holiday to Greece. And discovered the most priceless city of Chania, an artistic marvel huddled on the colourful yet serene Venetian harbor. A blue waterfront with artistic installations. Like classical music on a bed of rock n roll. Wonderfully juxtaposed. Thank you Vibrant Holiday Destinations, for this beautiful painting in such an urban setting!
