Bright night

One thing that I love in big cities is that they never go to sleep. At daytime one can easily explore and discover the many different attractions, parks and historical places. The streets are booming with boisterous and cheerful tourists. However, night does not mean darkness and silent streets. The cities are still lively and … Continue reading Bright night

Green and other colours

As a child I always loved nature. I grew up in the countryside and my home was surrounded by wheat fields and olive groves.

I never realised that not everyone went to the beach or collected sea shells during summer. Only when I lived abroad in colder countries, and countries that didn't even have sea I realised that … Continue reading Mermaids and dolphins

As children we grow up with beautiful stories of princesses, princes and enormous castles. One of my favourite stories as a child was Cinderella.

Therefore, something that I love … Continue reading Castles
