10 Things I loved about my latest trip to Greece

IMG_0382

Here 10 things that made this trip a very special one:

1) I learned to play scala 40. I am telling you: this game is addictive!

2) I hugged and kissed my yiayia every-single-day: my wrinkled little princess.

3) I visited my grandmother’s sister aunt Eleni (sweetest lady on earth).

4) We had a big delicious family meal on Sunday at my cousin Babis’ house.

5) My aunt Tasia made “cremidopita” and it was amazing!

6) A lovely purple good-luck necklace I am wearing right now from my aunt Agni.

7) My aunt Rena made me laugh all day…everyday.

8) I saw the most beautiful sunset of my entire life.

9) I got to have a heart-to-heart conversation with my cousin Leon.

10) I visited my grandfather’s grave and missed him even more.

Thessaloniki’s photo diary

There is a special place in my heart for this city. I have childhood memories that fill my heart with joy every time I think about Thessaloniki. I came back just a couple of days ago and even though the weather was cold, my heart came back very warm from seeing my family. 

As you guys can guess, I have a very big (and cool) family. In this past post you can see some more pictures. I stayed at my aunt Tasia’s home that is just above my grandmother and aunt Rena’s apartment. So I was going up and down the whole trip sharing with all of them.

I also visited my aunt Agni’s home and she cooked some delicious spaghetti that night. I shared a lovely meal with my aunt George and my cousin Leonidas (whom I love with all my heart).

We had a big and yummy family meal on Sunday and I got to see my whole family together.

I can’t tell you how happy and thankful I got to spend some time with all of them. I know my grandfather Kiriakos would be very happy is he saw us all together like this.

I ate siropiasta like a crazy person. I am not allowed to eat this kind of sweets due to my migraines but I made an exception just this once.
