Folegandros, Greece


I hear you; it’s been six months and here I am, posting summer holiday photos.

Well, you’re right.

It seems like I can’t manage two jobs, a Master’s degree and this blog.

But I can tell you one thing for sure. If you enjoy remote islands, relaxing in the shade of trees and wandering in the most beautiful Chora that I have ever seen, then Folegandros is the place to be.

I hope we’ll talk again soon, before my next trip!

 

2016 + 1

A little treat before we begin.

I really dislike to-do lists and new year’s resolutions, so I consciously avoid them. Especially when it comes to things that I enjoy doing in my free time, such as reading and watching films, I cannot and I don’t want to limit myself. When everything else in my everyday life is full of deadlines, time schedules and restrictions, I find considering pleasures as chores almost a barbaric way of thinking. So today, not having set any particular resolutions for 2016, I can reminisce this year light-heartedly, without worrying whether I “managed what I had to”, or not.

Since I really enjoyed last year’s post, I decided to keep the same format. The basic difference is that, this year, there are also photographs to enhance my 2016 highlights:

  • The DOME, Experience «Traces» installation which I visited in March.
  • My trip to florescent and always nostalgic Corfu, in May.
  • My camping days at Kato Samiko, in August.
  • My succeeding in my MA’s entrance exams, in September.
  • Our trip to Sofia, in mid November.
  • A job that, if nothing changes, will start soon.

I shall keep the same ending phrase as last year, since it still expresses how I feel: “I do have certain resolutions for the year to come but they can be summed up to this: create as many beautiful memories as possible.”

I wish you all a very, very happy 2017!

A trip to Sofia, Bulgaria

I think I love travel posts almost as much as travelling itself, both for reliving the experience and for sharing it!

Lets get to the point: from Nov 16 to Nov 20 me and my bf visited Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria. About a month ago I was looking for cheap flights for this period, since I already knew that my uni classes would be cancelled, and a trip to Sofia seemed to be the perfect opportunity: great travel schedule, amazing prices and a beautiful city waiting to be discovered!

Day 1, Nov 16

We left home early in the morning, since our flight was at 9 am. Although nobody enjoys an early wake, this meant we’d have a whole day in front of us to stroll around…
