Thessaloniki, where you will always return

Thessaloniki is the city where I studied so it is saved in my mind (and in my imagination) as the place where life can exist without worries and all these ”must” that came with adult life. Maybe it is not the city itself that makes me feel so nostalgic and where I keep on returning…

Bruxelles, ma belle

Like you probably know my hometown is Brussels. I was born and raised in this beautiful city and I absolutely love it. If it wasn’t for the ”lovely” Belgian weather, maybe I would consider living there again with Michalis one day. The multiculturalism, the open minded people and the multilingual environment are great reasons to grow…

When in need, be a friend to yourself indeed

We have all these moments in life where we feel this boost of energy coming out for a new beginning. At that same moment we rethink everything we did to come to that point. Life isn’t always simple and easy sometimes but don’t worry there is always a moment that the tie will shift. Here are…

Keep it micro

Our society nowadays is demanding and it expects a lot of us whereby we expect a lot of others and ourselves. Life has to be full, life has to be active. You have to undertake things all the time. You can not just sit around and do nothing, oh no, then society is going to…

8 things we love in Crete

Here we are, living in Crete since 5 months and we are just loving it! Okay, we have to admit the last month had terrible rains (yes it does rain here too, believe it or not) but there are many reasons why it is worth living here on this magnificent island. Every place has its…

Road trip @Portugal

We always wanted to drive around Portugal but reaching Lisbon from Greece is quite expensive (it is a four hours flight after all). It is so far but so similar to Greece in all different aspects. Firstly, the people are just amazing and super friendly. The wine is luscious, the nature is still pure and…

Why we should exercise now

Hello fellow readers, A question occurred to me when many people told me that I am crazy to exercise like I do. I questioned myself why I am running, going to the gym or doing yoga. Many people think: “Why work out, sweat and ‘suffer’ like this? Come on, you only live once so Carpe…

Tips for trips

If you know us a bit, you probably know that we met while travelling. The first three years of our relationship we saw each other in a city somewhere in Europe once a month. Through all these short or long weekend trips we have learned quite a few things for planning a trip. Here are…

Athens Vol.2

Happy new year! I wish this year to be just different, to take us a step further, to finally visit this place that we always wanted, to quit smoking, to start running again, not to forget to smile (at least once a day!), to say ”Kalimera” to the people even if we do not really…

Kilimanjaro – The Summit

Every single day is different on the mountain. The sceneries are changing every hour of the day. It is like you haven’t got enough eyes to see every tiny detail. The whole experience is overwhelming and this is why I recommend to keep a daily diary during the whole hike. I did that and it helps to rediscover the…
