A change of scenery: Welcome to the North

A changing of scerery-1


Good morning to all beautiful souls out there! I hope you all doing well! Actually more that well, fantastic! Today I have a huge announcement to make. I’m creating a new category on my blog and that is travel! Yay! I absolutely love to travel and I have enough material to write a decent number of blog posts, so there you have it.

I’m currently living in Netherlands, in beautiful city of Arnhem and I’m so in love with it! It is a truly colorful and happy city, full of green parks, flowers, ducks and greek statues! Have a look at my instagram for more photos, I’m refreshing the feed all the time!

So, since I’m not here for so long I’m gonna talk to you about the first five things that caught my eye as a new-comer. Here we go.

The first thing was the weather! I can tell you the weather here is bipolar. I left Greece’s 40 Celsius degrees of hot summer to come to the autumn of the North. Here you definitely need a winter jacket, as it’s windy and cold, it was such a shock to me. Also, it can rain ANY time and then be sunny and windy again. Thankfully the rainy waves don’t last long, so you can go out and enjoy a walk in the city, but an umbrella is always handy.

The second thing was the beautiful scenery. Oh I love the architecture of Arnhem. The buildings have their own character and they ‘re adorn with small colorful details, like vivid frames around doors and small pots on the windows. To be frank, I’m obsessed with the building doors. They come in such a wide variety of color and shapes adding a delightful note to the surroundings.

The third thing was all the amazing statues that decorate the public places of this city. In ancient Greek and modern style as well. I just can’t get enough of them! They stand there in the middle of parks and squares vamping you with their pure and unpretentious magnificence. I will make a blog post all about them in the future! Promise.

In addition to this the people so far have been really polite and helpful and I wouldn’t hesitate to ask strangers for information or directions. Plus everyone seems to know to speak english, so communication isn’t a problem.

Last but not least, there are so many wonderful little shops with wooden tables, rainbow chairs and flower decorations that are just impossible to ignore! More pictures are on their way, because I didn’t have the time to photograph them yet!

See you next time! Bye Bye!
