Life lesson: things aren't always as they seem

Tandem Stories: The life lesson

In more than eight months of living in Thessaloniki and attending Tandem almost weekly, I can say that I’ve met quite a lot of people there. People with amazing life stories, people from all over the world, travellers, students, professionals and so on. This story is however not about someone that I’ve met in Tandem, but about someone that I’ve met in front of Bord de l’eau. This person had an amazing life story, but I’ll talk rather about the life lesson that I learned that evening.

How I raced against myself and time in Thessaloniki Half Marathon

The 7th International Night Half Marathon of Thessaloniki took place on Saturday 13 of October, 2018. The organisation is the only one of its kind in Greece and includes two races. Besides the Half Marathon distance (21.095m) you can also participate in the shorter 5.000m race. In this article, I share how the race went and how the idea to participate came to my mind.

This weekend, the people of Thessaloniki will have a wonderful opportunity to visit the Thessaloniki Animation Festival (TAF). The event celebrates animated film in all of its forms. The event takes place every year around the 28th of October, which is the International Animation Day. The NGO Addart started organising TAF four years ago. During the four days of this year’s TAF (from 18th to 21st of October), around four hundred animated movies will be screened at Makedonikon cinema and the Municipal Central Library in Thessaloniki.
