With the stormy weather and the recent purchase of an HDMI cable, I’ve been getting the chance to catch up on some Netflix. And after some “meh” moments (read: insatiable, great news, 72 cutest animals), I came across the new season of Atypical. Now, Atypical is a series I need to be in the mood for. Because, this show, this freaking show, sometimes has the tendency to hit a little too close to home.
When I moved here nine months ago, I envisioned Athens as this beautiful, old city. Her history visible on every corner, ruins lining every street. Boy, was I mistaken. Turns out Athens is just like every other modern city. Packed with high rise buildings and a history that’s all but forgotten by her citizens.
Yet I fell in love. With Athens. With Greece. With her history and her modern mindset. Nine months isn’t enough to see all of her beauty, but I’d like to share what I’ve seen so far!
I learned to love the summer these past months in Greece. But I’ve always been a child of Winter. Give me a chilly breeze, sweaters, hot choco and rainy Sundays and I’ll be the happiest girl on earth. So when the skies turned gray in late September I couldn’t help but smile.
