Γεια σας. Καλησπέρα. Με λένε Κάρλι.
Hello. Good Afternoon. My name is Carley. This is what the above text roughly translates into. So this is it, I’ve jumped into setting up a blog about my journey on hopefully setting up a new life for myself in Greece. To be more specific Athens, Greece.
Why? I bet this is the first question on everyone’s lips, well why the hell not! No, unfortunately, it isn’t for love, an amazing promotion or I’ve had a thirty something break-down. It’s because I’ve always wanted to live in a different country. It could I suppose of been anywhere but I have visited Greece (not Athens) and I loved it! I loved the island (Skiathos), the people, the culture, the food and the climate so basically, I loved it. And now this is my new home of choice.
Yes, it has helped meeting lots of Greek people, some of whom I am lucky enough to call my friends. They speak so passionately about their country that it sparked a fire in me and lead me to think yes this is it, this is the place for me. It also helps that I fit all the Greek stereotypes;
I’m loud / I’m carefree / I’m generous / I love to feed people / I’m a coffee addict
There are many more which we can explore as we go on this journey hopefully together. I hope you will enjoy reading my documentation of this journey and if you have any suggestions of things you would like me to cover please feel free to message me.
