The more I travel the more I appreciate my country

The more I travel the more I appreciate my country

When I was younger I could only see the bad things in Greece. I had this false belief that everywhere else would be better. More civilised and better organised. Also te people would be more educated and more polite. Ha! I was wrong. Thankfully!

According to my experience so far, I can tell that Greek modern culture has this element od “out-going-ness”. the people are friendly most of the times and really open when it comes to starting a conversation by even goofing around little bit.

Plus they are really passionate. I guess is a mediterranean thing. When they love they are really passionate about it. This may cause a dose of extra drama once in while, but you learn to cope with it and even enjoy it at times, usually when your love life isn’t involved.

A huge bonus is the food. I seriously belive that Greek is one of the best, if not the best, cuisines among the world, alongside with Turkish. We have the most tasty dishes that I suggest you to try, if you ever visit this country. You can start with the really famous ones, like musaka and continue with some yemista or dolmades. Anything you’ll try will taste like heaven (if appropriately cooked).

In addition to this, there’s the weather! The sunny, warm waether with the clear, blue sky. The bright mornings and the late sunsets. I absolutely love it. The winter isn’t too cold, so you can take long alks around the city, thing that counts among my favorite engagments. Ok, the summer is indeed to hot, but there’s always a beach nearby, that you can visit.

  1. I’m always relieved to leave my country when I travel, but then when I get back I’m so happy to be here once more 🙂
