Living one year in Crete

Summer came to an end and that means that we have been living one year in Crete. We left Athens exactly one year ago and moved to a little place called Paradise. We have lived through our first fall, winter spring and summer. 365 days in our little house in Souda-Chania. Three months of endless…

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…

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…

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…

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…
