My Trip to Mykonos!!

I knew that if I were to ever go to Italy, I would also have to make a stop in Greece. For our last weekend abroad, my roommates and I decided to travel to Greece. We chose Mykonos- a beautiful island located in the Cyclades group. I arrived in Greece at 5 am. You’re probably thinking…

Greece: Constantinopoli (I went to Istanbul!)

Some exciting things have happened since my last post. That was forever ago, I know, but I haven’t really been doing a lot. A few weeks ago I was accepted for a paid internship for the summer. Around that time I found out a few people from my group were planning on going to Istanbul,…

Greece: Midterms and Meteora

It’s still a beautiful city, though, and I’m definitely 100% not saying that just because I’m unapologetically biased towards it. I’ve been meaning…

Greece: Back in the Routine

My first few days in Thessaloniki were incredibly dreary, but my favorite Greek weather is starting to come back and nothing can stop me from being thrilled to be settled here again. It’s amazing how quickly everything became so normal for me again. Thessaloniki really is my home. I just finished my first day of…

Greece: The land of gyros and χαλαρά

I’m two weeks away from making my second appearance in my personal favorite place, Thessaloniki. I can’t help but remember the first time I did this nearly four months ago. To say I was confused is putting it extremely lightly. If you have ever spent time abroad, you probably know that the language barrier is…
