Mediterranean Life Style
Who haven’t heard about Mediterranean life style! Not so many people… It is publiciezed frequently that Mediterranean living is one of the best life styles you can adopt.So many books are published about it and a lot of people dream about retiring to a little town on the Mediterranean Coastline. What makes it so attractive and desirable? Actually the answer is very simple: The simplicity of daily life. Mediterranean people are know as very relaxed people. They are very happy with little things. They eat healthy since most of the ingredients are locally produced and sold in farmers markets. People communicate, held and share instead of competing with eachother. There is always smile in faces because of very little reasons: “The weather is nice 🙂 “, “it is sunny today 🙂 “,”My wife is beautiful :)” are just a few basic reasons to be happy. After all, remember the movie “Life is Beautiful!” produced by Italians. Life is really beautiful. Very Friendly People
