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…

Athens it is.

Athens is the city I lived for almost a decade, this hungry for every kind of experiences decade of my twenties. I can even count the intensity of my staying in the city by the kilometres on my Vespa’s counter (more than 150.000 in ten years, the majority of them inside the city’s centre). As…

Kilimanjaro – The journey

After a long flight, with a very long layover in Istanbul, I landed in Kilimanjaro National Airport. It was the middle of the night but luckily Nyange Adventures provides a pick up, so I had nothing to be worried about. I cannot find the proper words to express my gratitude towards these people that made…

Kilimanjaro – The preparation

When I went for my internship in Malawi, 7 years ago, I told myself: One day I will climb the highest mountain of Africa and guess what? In September 2016 I did it! A lot of people are asking me lately how did I do it, if I had a lot of physical practice and…

Urban culture, public space/time and other stories.

After years of traveling, this is the most typical question that pops up in my mind every time that I visit a new place :”What is so different here compared to where I come from?”. In the majority of the cases I catch myself even looking for it, especially the last years this question kept on coming up in an…

Choices

We all have to make choices in life. These tiny ones, but still of importance: what to eat today or what to wear. We are asking ourselves all the time if we make the right choices. The studies that you take at the university, the city you live in, the place you work for, etc….

Small steps in a challenging world

“Every woman that finally figured out her worth, has picked up her suitcases of pride and boarded a flight to freedom, which landed in the valley of change.” ― Shannon L. Alder What do you think: Leave everything behind and just follow your dreams and see if they are realisable? Just like that? You think…

Where everything began.

The very first post… This need to write and communicate with god knows who and why. After almost a decade of living in Athens we moved to Chania/Crete and it’s like the horizon expanded, moved a bit further. More time and space led to more exploration (inside and outside) and thoughts. Big cities have this…
