Like a Local: Rediscovering the Streets of Athens by Foot


Transitions. Phases. Revelations. There are always gripping and crippling feelings that can be gained out of change. A change in status. A change in environment. A change in focus. More often than not, change helps reveal our 5Ws. Our whos, whats, wheres, whens and whys in life, depending on which part of the glass are we looking at: the half full part, or the half empty one. But what if it’s a change in culture, city, and circumstance.

Greece has gone through some slow yet powerful overhaul over the years, and you can see the effects of transitions in their everyday environment.  Comparing the forgotten postcards about Athens and hyped online images of the rest of Greece, versus the ones you can actually see and discover with your own two eyes. There are changes; there are new focus areas. But ultimately, it reveals how much Greece is living the life that they want to. Their whos, whats, wheres, whens and whys are evident in how they have preserved their culture, and how they manage their creative chaos. It’s not all-dark and sunken economy, but it certainly is not all high end Europe either. What’s assuring is that it’s one of those places that you’ll need to rediscover with your own two eyes and two feet. It’s best experienced firsthand.  A little too sympathetic here cos we end our Greece series for now. Though, I'm pretty sure the next country is worth the wait! #VivaRoma
