Hey people! How was your Christmas holidays? And what are your plans for New Year's?? :) These days I'm off work and we planned to go away for 2 days :) we went to Katerini, it's a city near Thessaloniki and it was an opportunity to explore a bit, the weather was great!
Katerini has a population of 85,800 inhabitants - a small Thessaloniki for us- the city's name was given after St. Catherine ( Αγία Αικατερίνη in greek) and has a big park, big market, lots of sidewalks, cafeterias and food restaurants! :)
So this is Alexander street from one side

to the other, including the church of the Holy Ascension of the Lord

this is the central square of Katerini, there were many people and their children there :)

There I wanted to have the same picture as Skipooterky's ;)

This statue is also in the central square

Lots and lots of people in the sidewalks

These hanging paintings were made by children of Katerini's schools- they were so many! :)

After that, we went to the big park :)

Fountains and bridges


The shops were awesome.. I wanted to buy everything :p

Ice cream, anyone?

Today we had a coffee before leaving the city

That's all folks! :)
Happy New Year everyone! :) :wave1:

I always love your little trips and this was no exception, Despina! The sights in Greece are so interesting--and the shops are very reflective of that, haha.

That ice cream looks delicious, I fancy a pint myself :giggle:

Your picture with your manger scene was beautiful, and a very happy new year to you as well, my friend! :hug: Best wishes for a happy and prosperous 2016!

Great pics, I see you had a lovely time on your 2 day escapade! :)
Be it Summer or Winter, ice cream is always welcome. A couple of days ago I had a caramel sundae with tiny cookies as topping and boy was it delicious! :D

Happy New Year to you too, Despina! :party:

Wonderful pictures Despina. I particularly like the ones in the park, it is so beautiful. And the Ice Cream, Yummy, yes please.
Thank you Kate! That city's name was after your name :) Lucky you! That park was awesome and I wanted to spend more time there.. but time flies, so I had to go! These types of ice-cream were a little different from what I used to see; I saw Kataif taste (a traditional dessert with syryp and walnuts), gum taste, chocolate parfait and many more! If my sore throat was better, I would have a big one! :p

Thanks Randy! We had a good time there and we got a bit lost, the streets all look almost the same :p Glad you liked them and have a happy new 2016 too! :)

Wonderful pictures of your visit to Katerini, Despina.
Thank you for sharing your journey with us. It's always fun to see the places you go!

I got a chuckle from your comment of wanting a picture like Skipooterky's with the nativity scene! :laughing1:

Have a wonderful New Year, my friend! :hug:
Thank you Deb! :) When I saw the manger scene, I remembered your picture! :p Glad you enjoyed them and have a happy New Year too! :D

Thanks Geneva! It was a nice getaway and a good opportunity to explore! Katerini is wonderful and very close to mount Olympus; we saw that mountain all the time! I loved the shops and the paintings of the kids hanging on the streets :) May this new Year bring the best to you and Mallorn! :)

Thanks Ana! It was nice and I really want to go again next year, before visiting the mount Olympus! ;) yes I love ice cream too! If only my sore throat was better, I would taste all of these :p And happy new year to you and yours, Ana!
