Take a tour of ancient Athens in the 1960s with this Pathé travelogue and see what John Milton referred to as ‘..the eye of Greece, mother of arts And eloquence.’
This is a very nostalgic video showing the aristocratic side of Athens streets back in 1924
Let’s warm ourselves a little bit with this Greek drink with origins from Turkey, named salepi.
If you stroll in the Greek city centres during winter time, look for the chestnut man, roasting chestnuts on the charcoal. It is a beautiful and nostalgic image, very familiar to Greeks that will definitely bring inspiration for some great photographic captures.
The chestnut seller has a portable brazier with a heap of roasted chestnuts ready to sell in paper cornets.
About two weeks ago, as I was spending time on Facebook, I saw a video of the Odyssey Challenge race. Although I am not that adventurous and athletic myself, I got really curious with all this Odyssey Challenge and I must say that I admired the willpower all these athletes have. I am sure some people would be interested in getting more info about or even taking part in it. That’s this post about then.
Odyssey challenge is a 25 Km race with 40 impressive obstacles taken at the magical Alonaki beach in Preveza, near Parga.
