The Little Greek Island an Hour from Athens: Agistri

The last two days in Greece quickly became my favourite time of the whole two month trip and it was all down to the little Island of Agistri.  My time in Greece was drawing to a close and the hope of seeing an Island grew dim as I trudged the grey, urine soaked streets of … Continue reading The Little Greek Island an Hour from Athens: Agistri

The YouTubers that are Travelling the World

I love watching YouTube videos and over the past year YouTube has slowly overtaken movies,television and sometimes even books (!) as my most preferred form of killing a couple of hours. It started off with a couple of make-up tutorials here and there and before I knew it, I was watching a couple hours a day. I … Continue reading The YouTubers that are Travelling the World

Chalkidiki: A Cheaper Alternative to the Greek Islands

  Money is definitely not something in plentiful supply at the moment. In fact, finding twenty-cents in my pocket the other day was the richest I have felt in a long time. Unfortunately that twenty-cents is not about to transport me, or the team I am travelling with, to the Greek Islands. Those beautiful, postcard-worthy islands … Continue reading Chalkidiki: A Cheaper Alternative to the Greek Islands

It’s Been a Challenge (or why I haven’t been blogging)

Let's get real around here! This last month has been really, really hard and I haven't had the best time here in Greece. It is approaching eight months since I left home and it has been five weeks since I last wrote a blog post. This marks the longest time I have gone without writing … Continue reading It’s Been a Challenge (or why I haven’t been blogging)

One week in Thessaloniki: Feta, Frappés and Feeling Unsafe

As I stepped out of the Easy-Jet airplane onto Greek soil, I was hit by wave of hot air. The hills shimmered in the distance and someone’s hat flew off their head and landed perilously close to the engine. My Greek friend in front of me let out a shrill of joy. Welcome to Thessaloniki! … Continue reading One week in Thessaloniki: Feta, Frappés and Feeling Unsafe

Peek Inside My Packing: Makeup and Toiletries

My last post was a peek inside all the clothes, shoes, gear and accessories that I am taking on my two-month trip to Greece. This post is dedicated to my toiletries and make-up. So maybe if you are a guy, then pass this one by. I take three bags of toiletries with me when I … Continue reading Peek Inside My Packing: Makeup and Toiletries

Peek Inside My Packing: Clothes, Shoes and Gear

With my departure date for two months in Greece looming, my teensy 45L Kathmandu backpack comes out of its dusty storage place to mock me with it’s inadequate size. Too big to check-in, too small to house my ever increasing belongings: it is the perfect size to encourage bag-sitting and zip-straining (this is why I … Continue reading Peek Inside My Packing: Clothes, Shoes and Gear

Month Four (and a half) of Travel

What a blissful month! I can honestly say that this has been the best month in a long time. I have made so many wonderful new, life-long friends. We have laughed, we have cried and we have spent too many hours lolling around in the sunshine. It is officially summer here in Germany and it … Continue reading Month Four (and a half) of Travel
