Sicily through my eyes – Catania

De multi ani, visam la Sicilia. De vreun an, devenise de-a dreptul obsesiv, asa ca luni  de zile am tot periat netul cautand variante, informatii, oferte. Pana la urma am gasit la o combinatie care-mi convenea, si ca date, si ca pret, si ca orar al zborurilor. Totusi nu puteam sa nu ma gandesc … Continuarea Sicily through my eyes – Catania →

Vila Aurora Trsteno


Villa Aurora is situated on the seaside of Trsteno, 30 km west from Dubrovnik, 200m from the 500 years old Arboretum, a natural tree reserve where trees from all over the world have been planted. The Villa was built as a country house in 1906 by the Dubrovnik noble Vito Basegli-Gozze for his family and guests.From 1907 to date, the villa has changed owners several times. In 1955, the communist government confiscated the Villa from it s owner, Milorad Dimitrijevic.

Aurora is a complex made up of a central villa and 4 country houses for guests and servants, and it was once the summer residence for the BIH communist officials.

In the Patriotic War, the Aurora, a protected cultural monument, was devastated and plundered in the aggresion by the Yugoslav Army in the Dubrovnik Area. The walls still show graffitti written in the war years. The Aurora has been falling apart for years, as the BIH does not have any money to bring it back to its former glory. John Malcovich wanted to buy the villa for an exclusive Adriatic resort but he did not receive any response from Sarajevo.

Sleep inducers


Worries can race around inside our heads, usually just as we are trying to fall asleep. The resulting restless night leaves us prone to anxiety. Help break this circle with a hot, relaxing evening bath using essential oils.

Many essential oils can be added to a bath to aid relaxation and sleep, just having a fragrance that you enjoy will help you to unwind after a long day.

A couple of relaxing blends, which are not over-sedating, are 3 drops sandalwood oil and 4 drops rose or 5 drops ylang-ylang oil. Add this oil to the bath just before you get in, holding them under the hot water tap so they are dispersed evenly in the air and water.

Other essential oils that aid relaxations include bergamot, chamomile and clary sage, while tranquillity and peacefulness cand be achieved with neroli.

When people are described as being “uptight”, that is often exactly what they are: tense muscles in the face and neck are a sure sign of anxiety. Release that tension with a face massage using gently soothing strokes.

A face massage using soothing strokes with the fingerprints, on the temples and forehead especially, is a very good as an evening treat, calming away the day’s cares and relaxing tense muscles.Use just a little oil, as most people dislike a greasy feeling on the face. Make up a blend of four drops lavender and two drops ylang-ylang oils in a light oil such as sweet almond, grapeseed or coconut.
