The EVS application process…

So I don’t usually write anything about me on here, all there is in my posts are EVS related or travel, but right now there’s something a little more personal I want to share.. Leaving home for university was difficult, believe me. I was over a hundred miles away from my family and friends and…

Kastra

So I’ve been in the city almost 8 months, and every time I leave the house I get to walk past the old city walls which run along the main road. At the top of the hill there’s Kastra, the “tower” which can be seen from anywhere in the city, this stone unused city monument…

International Night

British, Danish, Turkish, Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, German, Romanian, Croatian,  Greek, Macedonian, French and Liechtenstein.. together for a unique night. 12 days left.. an international night is what we needed, and to many people it was a nice meal together, but for a few of us the truth of me leaving the city soon was in…

Quick Catch Up

So my plan to write a post everyday went out the window. I guess I have missed many days but that’s because I’ve been busy trying to get everything sorted before I go back home! Day 7 – “clean monday”.. the day when I spent most of the time in bed or watching movies in…

EVS team building.. I guess?

So EVS brings many new experiences, and apparently with that comes mentor meetings.. meetings where we do “team building” and “important discussions”.. which always end up in arguments, and people feeling worse than before the meeting started. To be completely honest, there is nothing I fear more than mentor meetings, I am shouted at for…

tsiknopémpti

Carnival is a different experience. I think that’s all I can say. It is something unexpected, and something strange to witness. But definitely worth seeing. EVS in Greece brought me many new opportunities, some experiences that I would never get back home. So there will be times I will miss about being here. We went…

Time to myself..

One positive thing about this busy city, is that there are many quiet places to go and get some peace if you’re willing to look. My favourite place to go is into the forest, I go and sit under a tree and read a book or do some work. Away from the stress of the…

Spread the Love: The exhibition

So, this is my proud British USB moment. There’s only two British people in the organisation, me and Jack, and the 10th February I got to see Jack’s work that he had spent so many hours on. It was out in public, for everyone to see! We all spent the night together, drinking and partying…

Dafni & Georgina in Kalamaria Marina

Day Six.. So, today me and Dafni went on a little adventure to Kalamaria. Walking from the white tower to the marina we looked out at the fog covered sea and talked about things. About EVS, about travelling, and about boys. We decided to follow the water and continue walking. We ended up at Kalamaria…

Abandoned Railway

A few weeks ago, me and Jack did some research on things to do in the city, we wanted to find something different and at the same time cheap but an adventure. I came across the abandoned railway online and we decided to go, we kept away from the live tracks and walked past the…

25/02/17

The fifth day… So today it was pretty boring, but I learnt how to ignore others and do what I wanted to do. I’m so used to being here and thinking I am too anti social, or thinking the people are getting pissed off that I’m not doing something with them. But guess what… I…

Arcturos Bear Sanctuary

On the same excursion as Edessa we also went to the town of Nymfaio, which is high up on a mountain, where the air was so much thinner and the ground was covered in snow. The houses were very picturesque and the coffee shops were warm and cosy. We were told by our tour guide that…
