38 years old
I visited Greece the very first time in 1991 with my parents. We took the plane to Athens – this metropolis was gigantic, it was loud, impressive and full of live. I was twelve years old and wasn’t sure if I should like it or not. Then we took the ferry from Athens to Santorini across the Aegean Sea. And while travelling 8 hours, and seeing all the small, but so magic, different and interesting islands, each harbor with its own spirit and kind of people, I began to like that unique landscape before we arrived in Santorini.
Today, almost 20 years later, I still feel the same enthusiasm like in the “old” days, but the greatest gift I got during the recent years was to gain insight into the Greek way of living and their traditions. Besides others I like to travel to the Cycladic Islands because of the purity of style: blue and white, composed with great light!
I like crowded places - as long as I can watch it from a little distance – in the same way I like loneliness and silence in the nature or the unique atmosphere when visiting an ancient mountain village. Just as well I like impressive archaeological excavations and the landscape variety in Greece in general.
