PLACES: first impressions of thessaloniki

After almost a week spent in Greece, it is time for some first impressions I want to share with you in pictures – I have been taking many of them (not always with camera – trying not to feel like a tourist), while walking the city and the surroundings of my house. They help me collecting impressions, feelings and thoughts, that words can not tell.

Why I love this city: no horizon.

The ones that know me well know that I must be happy with these blue skies and golden sun: I am!  Still, I am in the process of realizing that this is my city for the next 5 months, but slowly I try to find routines, the nicest veggie store around the corner and the best bakery. I am happy to have chosen a city I have already visited twice and do not feel like I have to get to know the city from point zero, so now I hope to find a working routine (and more to do at work!), a yoga spot and to learn some greek as soon as possible.

    Impressed, proud and a bit jealous in a positive way – your mom, who was in Thessaloniki 36 years ago!
