Selfie Sunday : Catherine of Seeking Felicity

Seeking Catherine in Santorini

Felicity is a bliss and a cause of happiness. Seeking felicity is looking for that source of happiness and Catherine Iblan found that through traveling. She is currently based in London that is why she travels to amazing countries of Europe a lot.


When asked about the photo above, Catherine says "this selfie shot was taken atop Nea Kameni, a volcano in Santorini, Greece.

 It is really a selfie shot because I used the timer, ran to sit on that huge rock over there and waited with a huge smile on my face. I cropped the picture that's why it looks up close. In the background is the cliff village of Fira and a cruise ship. 

I had so much fun in Santorini and one thing that contributed to it is the fact that I got good deals - for me, part of the fun of travelling is to not blow my budget/ finding great deals! Travelling at the start of the off season helped. The place where I stayed at normally costs 200 euro but I got it for 35 GBP a night (breakfast included). What a bargain! And the (one way) flight to there from London is just 45 GBP! Eating in taverna is as close to homemade as you can get there plus they're really affordable (4-7 euro per main dish) and the servings are big!"

  7. Santorini! Santorini! When will our path cross? When will be the day that I'd bask in your broad daylight atop a rocky hill of yours?

    She's one lucky soul. And she's living her life full of felicity. If you happen to see my "Current Life Dreams" just on the right side of my blog below the a photo of "Bagsik Ng Panitk" you'll see and read that it owns the 2nd spot in my list - Prague the Czech Republic owning the top spot.

    Another amazing thing is that she travels more but spends less. I guess that's how a traveller -seasoned or not - should do while traveling. Enjoying every place they go to hurting not their budget. Great for her! :) :) :)

    And she's pretty of course!
