Athens 2.0

It’s mid-September, and I find myself again on the porch at my aunt’s house in an Athens suburb.


One year in Edinburgh, and a Masters degree under my belt, and I am back in Greece for more. Here for at least another year to do (another), one-year Masters programme at the University of Athens.


So far, I’ve spent my time eating (as usual), tackling bureaucracy and logistics, and looking for a place to live. As a result, I haven’t spent much time really thinking about the year ahead of me, and what I hope to achieve while I’m here. Mostly I’m enjoying the family, the food, and the life of this city, while wandering the neighbourhoods and continuing to explore.


There is something about the unpredictability of every block and turn of a corner that is irresistible to me, and I am so excited by the possibility of continued explorations. I’m not sure what this year will bring, but I am determined to make the most of my time here, as well as to use my blog as a more medium for documenting and processing my experiences. Travel, food, photography and musings – nothing new or terribly exciting – but I hope you’ll join on this next piece of my Poseidon Adventure. 🙂

  1. Always good to line up the goals. . . my first question at every first September lesson: What do you hope to accomplish this year? Looks like you have lots of plans!
