  • FISHY BUSINESS
.
In the middle of Athens, only minutes from the ancient stones of the Acropolis, you can find the Central Municipal Market. This large space holds an active marketplace where mostly fish and meat are being sold, straight from the cutting block.
.
Surrounding the main building are streets lined with taverns and stands where everything from olives to spices is being sold.
.
Don't wear your best shoes here.

  • WINTER IN ATHENS
.
My escapades in Asia have left me with less funds than expected. Who knew job hunting in Bangkok would be that hard on my budget? I managed to find work back on the Old Continent, and have settled down in Athens for now.
.
As I watch the sparse snow disappearing from the hills surrounding this mess of concrete apartments and centuries-old stone, I can only look forward to taking on the road again...

  • First of all, merry Christmas/Yuletide to all my followers! Also:

- NEW BLOG ENTRY (Link in bio) - "When the well dries up, you dig a new one"
.
This has been true for me ever since I left my struggling life in the Netherlands for this new life of wonder, opportunity and growth. I am extremely thankful and proud to be able to look back on what has probably been the most important year of my life (so far).
.
This latest entry in my Trail Thoughts reflects on this, after my recent loss of travel momentum in Bangkok. Read all about it by following the link in my bio!
