With your bicycle in the city...


How many times we want to leave behind the daily routine of Athens take our bicycle and do bike in the close streets of Athens until we get tired and can't do anymore.For this reason every first Monday of the month at 7 mm,there is the Critical Mass Ride, a great bike ride starting at Syntagma Square (www.podilates.gr). Also, every Friday at 9.30 mm, get ready for Freeday cycling tours that start form the Square Assomaton in Thissio.

Let the art speak


"Art should have your pulse racing, your palms clammy with nerves and the excitement of creating something truly original in a dangerous environment,"once said the 32-year-old from Bristol Banksy.His real name is Robert Banks and he has no formal art education but learned his craft designing bootleg rock memorabilia. Before that, he'd started spraying graffiti when he was an unhappy 14-year-old schoolboy.People who have met him say he has something of Dickens' The Artful Dodger about him.His cheeky, political art, which combines graffiti with cartoons drawn with a distinctive stencilling technique and have impressed everyone,has built-up a cult following over the past few years.His art speaks directly to the masses...humorous but often thought-provoking.Although Banksy's profile is increasing almost daily,as a subversive artist,Banksy has eschewed the art establishment, refusing to entertain the idea of selling any of his work.History is littered with anti-establishment figures that end up embracing the establishment they rail against, particularly as they grow in popularity.Banksy may or may not be in this category. Certainly he will remain subversive as long as what he once described as "the thrill of painting something big where you shouldn't do" remains.

Strawberry fields forever...

From the previous week I was thinking what post to make to present you my favorite and Leto's also favorite band ever..So I decided to upload in my opinion their best song to give you a taste of the band that achieved to make everyone knows them from 60's and after...I talk about BEATLES of course!


P.S.The song was written by John Lennon and attributed to the Lennon/McCartney songwriting partnership. It was inspired by Lennon's memories of playing in the garden of a Salvation Army house named "Strawberry Field" near his childhood home.

Spring brings everything...

Every year when the spring begins I have to confess that I'm fucking happy!I don't know exactly why but there are so many things that they are going to start that I cant wait..First of all I love the sunny days in Athens combining them with long walks with my friends making me wanna stay outside all the time.The countdown until the final exams in school is also a good reason to be happy.In addition the markets are full of spring fruits like strawberries,cherries,apricots,medlars..The spring clothes,shoes and accessories are so ethereal and full of colors that make me love the spring even more.Finally the biggest reason that I adore the spring is that summer approaches as therefore and the summer vacations.

Saturday nights in Athens..

Every time is unique every time there is a new place every time there is a new treasure for us to explore. This is why I love Athens. There are other times that I hate this ugly city because there are so many choices and I’m unable to choose. But I have so many good memories from every single place in Athens from "Glyfada" to "Exarheia". Walking drunk around Athens trying to reach the closest metro station without fainting. It sounds awful but it isn't for me. This is my life and it's not about alcohol it's about joy and happiness and friendship. I must admit I have changed so much since last year and my friends too. The places we like to visit now are so different from the places we liked once and that’s why Athens have so many different places that you are able to visit. In every region there are places for all tastes so everyone are satisfied.
