Welcome to the Hamptons

The Hamptons... the place where (according to TV shows and especially Teen Dramas) rich people go to have some deserved rest in the summer after spending a long cold year working in New York or some other big city...

So... WHAT AM I DOING HERE? Am I living in a Teen Drama? 0___0 Well, sometimes it feels like I am actually living in a crazy TV show with back stabbing bitches, secrets and other crazy stuff, but I guess each one of us have got that little corner of madness in their life...

Still, my friend, this is the question... I am not rich... well... I have a good salary with my crazy job, I admit that, but I definitely don't earn enough to make me Hamptons Rich... Even if after a couple of days in the place I am planning to became THAT rich xD

So what am I doing here? Let me tell you the story...

Eric's brother has a little place over here on the water. A little house he use in the summer when he's on holiday. A place where he goes to relax and fish. When Eric and I planned this trip we wanted to go see his brother and spend some time with him but unfortunately T. was working so he generously decided to give us his place for a couple of days and it has been awesome. The perfect end to our two weeks trip, even if I didn't met his brother and I would have loved to. Well, it will happen soon enough, I'm sure of that. And maybe we will spend some other time in this fantastic place... No wonder why people from NYC talk so much about this place. It is wonderful. There is a lot of green and some amazing landscapes. It is a place who calms your senses, exactly what people from the city needs!

So here I present you The Hamptons in all their lovely glory!

Just walking on the streets, seeing these perfect places kissed by the morning light makes you feel like your going to have a damn pretty good day ahead.

We were here at the right time. Fall was coming with its wonderful colors but Summer was still there with its warmth. It was absolutely spectacular.

Toward the end of your holidays sometimes you can feel like you need an holiday from your holiday, you know what I mean? You took your time away from work to relax, instead you spent your time running around, seeing things, thinking 'I don't have enough time to do what I planned to do! Ahhhhh' and you can start stressing. That is why, spending a couple of days in this place made us recover all our energies. We cooked for each other, we read to each other, we had time for us. I valued this time because it is difficult playing 'family' living on a boat. You have someone who cooks for you, someone who do laundry for you, someone who fix your telly for you... It sounds great I know, but it is not a normal life and sometimes a ordinary day it's just what you need. I think it might be similar to a campus life, but I never had that. I was living home while I was studying so this life for me was a pretty radical change... Although, it made me appreciate more the normal things and I am grateful for this break from my life :)

Here one of the views I was talking about. It makes you feel so relaxed.

And here is another one. The colors are just SPECTACULAR!

I took this one on the beach, a few minutes from the place where Eric and I were staying. The beach was full of shells, maybe even made of them. The sand was cold but the water was still perfect.

Here we are on the dock at T's place. The water was so still. This picture made me think of the movie The Great Gatsby, the last version with Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire. If you saw it you know what I mean. :)

The Dock.

From the dock in the morning...

... and in the afternoon :)

This one makes ma want to sing:

I don't wanna wait for our lives to be over
I want to know right now what will it be
I don't wanna wait for our lives to be over
Well in the end oh will it be ... sorry
(Do do do do do do do .. do do do do do do do)


And that's it for now. I keep going in the wrong order so I apologize. I will try to figure out a way to put everything in the right time frame! Hope you enjoyed the pictures. I loved taking them and I love to share them with you. For me, a couple of years ago, just thinking that these places were real and somewhere in the World was uncanny... It still is, so that's why I want to share them. It may seems like I am bragging somehow but that is not my intention. I just want to share these things the way my eyes saw them. Hope you can appreciate that and I am sorry if I gave you the wrong impression :)
