I am a fan of poetry. Poems have the ability to paint a picture in just a few words. But what I find remarkable is that I often find my life painted in poems…especially while traveling.

I remember a rather odd life changing travel experience during a weekend I spent in Germany in theatrical seminars. I was participating in a lord of the ring role-playing activity where the game-master gave us the mission to search for a fellow elf into the woods at night. I may not remember a lot that day but I certainly can recall the sound of the raindrops on the leaves of those tall German trees as we were walking slowly in utter silence so as not to wake up the animals in the forest. It was at that moment when all our senses awoke as if we became the inhabitants of that forest ourselves. I realized that detecting beauty is a constant exercise.  Sensitivity, adaptability and acknowledgement of the beauty around us, of the small things that turn out to be big only if we slow down and observe them. And of course, I recall the ties of friendship with the people I bonded with that weekend, breaking all language barriers.

Through the years, traveling has become exactly that to me: the sum of silence, observation and attention to small details of beautiful things. Greece is a canvas of them with its history, colors and contrasts.

And as one of my favorite Greek poets says ....

You can build brand new stories from scatch with only sky and salt.
To remind you a bit of autumn, a lot of summer and that eternal spring

In 2010, the Greek crisis hit and the country went into freefall. I was left without a job, a car or even medical insurance, and there was little perspective of finding a new job any time soon.

Camus once mentioned that a single truth, if it is obvious, is enough to guide an existence. Although it may sound unreasonable or perhaps simplistic at first glance, for me it proved to be right.

I grew up in a neighbourhood called Nea Smyrni. The first settlers here were refugees from Asia Minor. People in our neighbourhood are proud of where they come from.

It must have been at the end of middle school when I discovered graffiti. My new hobby began stealing ‘precious’ time I could have used for studying for school. I realised that action had to be taken...

The French poet Arthur Rimbaud once wrote that "Eternity is the sea mingled with the sun " and I guess there' s a little bit of truth of that in me.

Life should be like bungee jumping: we're meant to take leaps in our lives, moments when we choose to be daring and forget to be afraid.

There is a theory that claims that your name determines who you are. Antigone, the famous heroine of a Greek tragedy, defied the rules and for that she faced death.

Testimonials

"First time family trip to Greece we did a fantastic private tour to Delphi, perhaps the most interesting of all the ancient destinations we toured during our two week trip. This is a fantastic way to see the countryside, visit Delphi, enjoy local food and learn about local small businesses. I wish I could travel this way everywhere we go. I will recommend this tour to anyone heading to Athens. A Must-Do!"

"Fun, interesting, educational and a really great guide. The tour exceeded my expectations and I would recommend it to anyone even vaguely interested in street art."

Margo - Australia

"We sampled a delightful array of really good quality food. It was also good to learn about the different neighbourhoods in Athens by our tour guide. We were recommended this tour by family members and definitely will be recommending it to others."
