A few days ago, my friends and I participated in the “Invisible Tours“, a social project run by the Greek street paper “Shedia”. It is a social tours program, based in the capital of Greece, Athens, in which homeless people become tour guides in a very different kind of a city walk…
The more I grow up, the more I get to adore and admire Greece’s countless beauties. Though there are many landmarks I have visited in my childhood and I’m familiar with, I often realise that over the years, I have lost track of the exact details and images. I have grown a nostalgia for rediscovering my country and legacy, ultimately believing that through such expeditions, I get to rediscover parts of myself, too. And so in this spirit, on a cloudy and mystical day, my girlfriends and I visited, once again, the famous ancient sanctuary of Delphi!
It is my honest belief that Athens is going through a revival phase; this is a capital that not only has great history and culture, but it also counts many contemporary gems that have marked a new era for this city. Certainly, one of the most breathtaking new additions is the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center, an urban, multifunctional complex of creativity, culture and recreation that signifies civic pride at its best!
Vienna can be a very romantic city to visit, the Opera, Palaces and Museums are mesmerising. Klimt’s incredible “The Kiss” painting is also there to see. And don’t get me started on the food… Schnitzels, Hot-dog stands to sin for, Apple Strudels and Chocolat Viennois…! You get the picture, head to the rest of the post to see more suggestions.
Recently, I got to visit enchanting Israel and experience first-hand the beauty of Tel-Aviv, Jerusalem and the Dead Sea. I was invited there for the wedding of a truly wonderful couple. Not only did I have the chance to witness their love, a very romantic ceremony and wedding reception in Tel-Aviv, but I also got their local, insider tips and detailed guide information on Israel shared below:
I had the incredible opportunity to attend the Pearl xChange conference in Los Angeles, co-founded by Nicole Richie and Ramey Warren, Founder & President of Media Savvy Plus. It truly was an enlightening, thought-provoking day, filled with inspiration and positivity, promoting the power of shared knowledge — totally worth the trip from Athens to LA!
