The summer is almost here, the busiest travel season of the year. If you haven’t booked a trip yet, this post might act as a little source of inspiration as it photographs the beauty of Greek Islands. For many of us Cypriots, island hopping is a recurring experience, yet Greek Islands are a hot spot for internationals too. Here’s a little reminder why.
The first blog post of 2019 is dedicated to a favourite hobby and an restless thirst; travelling. Back in March of 2018, I went on a roadtrip through Tuscany’s vine fields and pebbly towns with some girlfriends. Nearly a year later, I came across the photographs I took and wondered what I should do with them. Perhaps I can write about which route we took or life on the road yet sometimes I like to let the images do the talking.
This is a collection of images I took that go beyond Thessaloniki's famous White Tower, to an observation of its urban element and how the locals experience it. Focusing on the city's textures; marble, concrete, water, and stone, this photo essay shows how to alternatively observe Thessaloniki. Through noticing how the locals interact with the cityscape, we gain a peek into its history and culture.
During a summer where the feeling of change was persistently creeping up at my door and I was trying to accept and welcome possible amendments, I decided to do something I haven't experienced before, something out of my comfort zone; go on my first solo trip.
"Are you going to a European programme by any chance?" she asked. "Yes!" I replied in disbelief that I stumbled on this encounter just a few hours after being in Serbia. Check out my Serbian experiences and what my lens captured.
I went on an inter-communal weekend-long road trip visiting the island's ten most beautiful viewpoints in both the southern and the northern edges of the island in quest to rediscover more of the land I call home.
