Hello everyone and welcome to my blog! I am Helen and I am from Greece.
I had previously lived in the UK while I was studying. I first came when I was 18 years old and I completed a foundation course at Highbury College in Portsmouth. I decided that I liked it here a lot and then I spent another 4 years doing my BA in Economics at Kingston University and my MSc In International Money, Finance and Investment at Brunel University. Student life was the best!
I then missed my family a bit too much and I moved back to Greece. I soon moved to Athens where I got myself a flat in trendy Kolonaki and a job at the Hellenic Ministry of Culture. I had the best time ever, working in a nice environment, attending lots of cultural events, museum openings, going to the theater and always out and about in the city for drinks and lots of shopping!
And then crisis hit Greece and things were no longer the same. I started applying for jobs in London and I soon found my way back to the country where if the sun comes out you feel so excited as like you have hit the jackpot!!
I have now been here for about 3 years and I still enjoy it. Recently I started writing this blog. I feel like it is my little diary where I would like to share with you all the things that I love, places that I go to and anything that inspires me and I find interesting to write about.
I hope you enjoy my visual diary. Come along with me and enjoy the ride. Feel free to leave me any comments or suggestions.
Thank you so much for reading.
