Oh yeah, I have a blog, that’s right… I remember something…


I had somehow forgotten about this… Wow, time flies, my last entry was in January 2013, and now it’s August 2014…

However, I recently decided to write down stuff that I do every day and is new, or kind of new… They say “do a new thing every day that scares you” (but I’m not sure what scares me anymore, I can even deal with cockroaches for the most part)… so I’ve decided to just do “new things” and write them down and see what happens 🙂

New things that I have done in the past few days include (but are not limited to)

– I woke up at 6.15 one day and went running  – yes that’s right, that’s before work!

– I woke up at 6.40 on a Saturday to go catch a boat

– I saw a big, big sea turtle swimming just about 20 cms away from me (I think this was the highlight of my summer so far… amazing feeling)

– I went to a couple of places away from Athens that I hadn’t planned months and months ago (as I normally do) and had a really great time

– I took my oldest nephew (almost 10 years old now) for a swim and a chat. I learnt a lot of stuff.

– I drank real cow milk – the real thing, not the thing that comes in a carton – didn’t really like it to be honest 😛

– I tried to do the wheel. For the first time in my life. Yes, that’s right. It worked! Perhaps not too well, but I don’t care, at least I tried it!

– I swam and dived (apparently both “dived” and “dove” are correct) in an underwater cave… Scary at first, purely amazing just seconds later…

There will be more to come…



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!
