At the Alexandria Opera House which is also known as “Sayed Darwish Theatre”, you’ll always find happiness for your ears, on point tunes unwinding the tangled wires in your mind with every note played. You always find happiness there, if it’s not in a symphony being played, then it will be in a song being sung or a dance being performed, you will always find something that delights your senses.
- Stanley Bridge on a Friday Morning
We still haven’t discovered the magical charm of Friday Mornings in Alexandria, but it sure has us all under a spell. Friday Mornings is the perfect time to see everyone practicing their hobbies with a carefree attitude; running, cycling, skating or motorcycling even. Some of us though prefer to sit back, sip on a cup of coffee, be inspired by that scenery and pour words on a piece of paper and others reading it.
- Fish Island
Serenity is truly manifested in this restaurant. Looking over Marriott Lake while eating freshly fished and cooked to perfection seafood, the scenery will make your heart skip a beat. Honestly, you don’t need company when you have a good meal and an outstanding view, that’s the complete package right there!
It might be a longer drive than your usual go-to eatery, but the drive is totally worth it.
You don’t have to unwind only on the weekends; it can be done after work or before work, depending on whether you are a morning person or a night owl.
Do give yourself the time to breathe, relax and unplug on a regular, don’t underestimate the power of some one on one time with yourself, a quality time that brings you high returns without even noticing.
Once you commit to it, you’ll find yourself more productive with heightened mental and physical energy being recharged daily. Tranquillo is a way of life, a peaceful and mindful one indeed.
