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…

Edessa waterfall

I went to the waterfall with Dafni a few weeks ago on a day excursion with a tour company. It was quite a long bus journey, and for me it was very boring as everything was in Greek so I didn’t know what was going on. As soon as we got off the bus we…

Tandem

The Fourth Day… I am proud to admit that the tandem organised by myself, Jack and the ESN team was a great success. For our first collaboration it was a great turn out. We expected around 30 people but by the end of the night that number doubled at least. We brought in many customers…

The Right to be Human

The third day.. We visited the Goethe-Institut to go look at the exhibition “The Right to be Human”. An art exhibition that links human rights with art and current affairs. The exhibition was quite small and only featured a maximum of 20 pieces of art, but it was free and interesting to see. My favourite…

Day ##

So the second day of my countdown. What did I learn? I learned that I don’t need the other EVSers to be happy. I am finally relaxed in the city knowing I only have a few days left. I don’t need their company to be happy, I don’t need their conversations to feel content.  The…

And so, the countdown begins

In your life a lot of people will tell you to seize the day – carpe diem and YOLO style, and it’s true… take every opportunity, show the world what you have to offer. But there also comes a time when you have to tell yourself “enough is enough”. It was a fantastic opportunity for…

A little promotion never hurt anybody..

So, this Friday our organisation, and in particular Jack, is hosting a photo exhibition in the city! It’s for World Condom Day, and its a great opportunity to see some fantastic art! Anyone in the city come take a look!!  

Acropolis of Athens

On our second full day in Athens we decided to go to Acropolis, probably Athens most well known attraction. We started the day by going to the Acropolis museum, where we were able to look around at many monuments and statues from the past. It was 5 Euros to enter and we were had to…

Experience in Athens, thanks to the locals..

After a cold nights sleep, me and Jack woke with plans to meet Kostas who kindly offered to give us a walking tour of the city. We left the house a little early and walked towards our meeting point – Acropoli metro station. The weather was dull and splatters of rain landed on the tourist…
