A PERSONAL NOTE ON HOW MY STUDIES ARE GOING

As has been the case since forever, my studies are the reason for not updating the blog as much as I want to. Now I don’t think that’s necessarily a bad thing, but I do feel like I need to keep you guys a little informed about that as well. Also because I’ve got some read more »

THORIKOS EVENINGS

I didn’t make as many pictures in Thorikos as I used to, but camera-wise I was very productive on our last evening, shooting pictures of the site and surroundings. I think they turned out really well and perfectly reflect the nicest part of the day, when it’s finally cooling down and you’re able to actually read more »

VELATOURI HILL

Kind of lost for words, since privately things aren’t going that well. I’m still in Greece, considering the option to take an earlier flight (I planned to leave coming Sunday), but I think I just need a good night of sleep so I can think straight again tomorrow. In the meantime, I’d love to share read more »

SOUNION AND MORE [GREECE DAY 8]

Okay I promise, this is the last post about Greece (for now =p). Most of these pics were taken on the last day of our road trip, which led us to Sounion (with the great Poseidon temple on a hilltop looking out over the ocean) and Thorikos, the archaeological site where I can be found read more »

STUDY ESSENTIALS

From my last visit I remembered the Acropolis Museum shop to sell ah-mazing study essentials, such as this notebook. Back then, I bought a blue one with illustration of a typical ancient horse (remember?), but this time they had many more colors and designs available, so I fell in love again (is it just me read more »

ANCIENT ATHENS [GREECE DAY 6 + 7]

And another Greece diary again! These pictures were taken in Athens, where we spent the last three days of our road trip. The weather wasn’t that good anymore, but I really love the cloudy pics, especially the Parthenon one. The Acropolis was breathtaking as always anyway, so no need for sunshine, haha. By now I read more »

CORINTH AND ELEUSIS [GREECE DAY 5]

I know I’ve been a very bad blogger lately, but believe me when I say I got shitloads of inspiration to share with you, but just not enough time to work it all out. Semester four from the uni just started (which, again, is an incredibly demanding one) and I’m quite busy finding my way, read more »

MYCENE, EPIDAUROS, NAFPLIO [GREECE DAY 4]

This blog is slowly turning into a photoblog, haha. I just got so many Greece and Spain photos to share with you and I don’t wanna put too many pics in one post, so here I am again with another Greece diary. These pics were taken at the b-e-a-utiful sites of Mycene and Epidauros, with read more »

OLYMPIA [GREECE DAY 3]

Our fourth day in Greece we spent in Olympiaaa, which – of course – is the place where the Olympic Games once began. At the time, the games were purely religious, so there are still a lot of temples and cult statues to be admired. Just like Delphi, Olympia lies in the middle of nowhere, read more »

DELPHI [GREECE DAY 2]

Can’t believe I actually visited Delphi. It was definitely one of the places listed on my bucket list. For some of you, Delphi might not be that interesting, but for me it is, because in Antiquity, it was the religious center of the world. Here, people from all over the world came to visit the read more »
