11 random facts about me:

It is evident from the lapse of time between the nomination with the Liebster Award by Cody Grisham and Darion Morris from http://www.2guystrippin.com/   that taking decisions is not my cup of tea. I suppose I have some of the attitudes of the solo traveler & fiction writer & translator all in one. I tend to be an introvert when in writing mood and travelling in my own universe of complicated feelings. However, curiosity & restlessness grab me by the hand and here I run in the streets of Athens with my camera, or in the internet to arrange my next trip, or catch up with communication. Swimming is my daily practice. Driving with open windows listening to rock music is a happy moment. My long lasting love is for Cities and for Words; I chase Images, through photos & films. Blogging is a new passion and I am fascinated to meet you all in this brave new world!

My answers to the 11 questions from Darion & Cody who nominated me:

1. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go first? South America
2. What is your favorite travel blog? I find Chris Guillebeau’s rather inspiring
