Road trip – Meteora & Pelion 2018

If you live in Thessaloniki, you probably already know that during weekends you have a lot of “ESCAPE” choices. The nearest places are Halkidiki, Mount Olympus, and Kavala. But if you are ready for a long weekend trip, a good option is Meteora, which is only 3 hours away from Thessaloniki. Watch the video of our trip!

Acropolis, the citadel of Athens

Acropolis, the masterpiece of antiquity, the stunning walls on an ascent of the famous city includes several temples dedicated to the goddess Athena as well as Greek theaters, whose original ruins symbolize durability and testify to different epochs of human history, their creations, and their desire for survival.

Thank you Athena for this beautiful city

According to the legend, Athens is the city that was named after the goddess Athena and Acropolis is believed to be its founding place. The legend says that Athena (the goddess of the wisdom) and Poseidon (the god of the sea) have been fighting on this very place for a long time for the dominance over the city and their fight was exhaustively long and without any reaching conclusion. Eventually, a competition was decided by the local people, that were willing to dedicate this place to that god, which will provide more valuable gift to the city.

Visit in Sofia on the edge of Spring

It was one of those late March weekends, when nature and weather are still undecided whether it is already spring or not. I have arrived to Sofia by bus on an early Friday morning and my first steps in this city of wisdom were diving deep into the thick layers of omnipresent snow. This freezing weather was strongly underlying the post-Soviet character of the city and thus my first impression made me feel like Iron Curtain has never fell in this place.
