Saying ‘I love to travel’ seems like kind of an obvious statement. I’ve lived between the US, Cambridge, Athens, Edinburgh and Athens again. I think, however, there is something in me that goes beyond your average spring-break-seeking voyager.
I blame my parents – when I was 4 months old they took me to Greece (via London) so my grandparents could see their new grandchild. I like to think it was at this point my love for both countries became inevitable.
Still, I think ‘travel’ doesn’t quite express my approach to the world – I think it’s more appropriate to say I love to explore. Sure, far away and exotic destinations are great, and I’ve been lucky enough to visit a fair few, but I’m just as happy driving down remote country roads or poking around an overlooked corner of my hometown. At the same time, the whole idea of ‘hometown’ has become somewhat of a… theoretical concept for me. One I wouldn’t trade for anything!
