200 days on the road


I know the last time I wrote something it was about the carnival in Brazil, which is a few months ago, but I simply had to write something now…

Tonight it’s my last day abroad – for now.

After exactly 200 days on the road, I’m going back home tomorrow. And two (I think) of my best friends are coming to pick me up from the airport.

So many intense and conflicting feelings… Couldn’t really name all of them (not even in Greek), but they include sadness, excitement, emptiness, eagerness… and a lot more. 

Spending almost a whole month in London was simply amazing, and once more I realized how much I love this city. I know that this is such a stereotype, but I think I’d be moving back here if it wasn’t for the weather…

Enough with the emotions and the blahblah. Here’s a pic my good friend Pete (whose floor I’ve been squatting for this whole month in London) took of me.


Cumming home tomorrow… Can’t wait to get rid of that winter jacket and find my sandals.

At the same time, I have a wedding to go to on Saturday. Can’t say I’m looking forward to finding my high heel shoes… It’s been so nice to have the excuse of not “having” any formal clothes with me…

Then again, a nice dress would be nice for a change 🙂


About Vanidio

I was born in Athens, Greece, and left at the not-so-tender age of 27 to go to London for a master's degree - or, rather, to go experience the city. I worked there for a while, and after four years I decided to move back to Athens, and got a really boring job with a decent (more than decent) salary. In December 2011 I took a year off work, and travelled to Latin America, Europe, Greece and the Middle East. When I came back, I spent quite a bit of time trying to fit in and organise my "normal" life - or decide that I don't really want a "normal" life. At that time, travelling was more important to me than almost anything else... And then things changed a bit, as I got an offer from a foreign company to organise tours for foreigners in Athens. Dream coming true? Yes! We've done a few tours so far, and hopefully more are coming... let's see! And then things changed even more, as I met a nice, handsome foreigner through one of these tours. And we are now living together, and planning our next trips together :) Life is strange, isn't it!
