spring break week

♫ ♪ Cassius - I Love You So

(Scroll down for translation =) )

Πω πω μια εβδομάδα έλειψα όλη κι όλη και νιώθω ότι ερήμωσε το μέρος εντελώς! Που ήμουν; Με απήγαγε ένας ρινόκερος μεταμφιεσμένος σε γριούλα και μέσα από μια πολύχρωμη τρύπα περάσαμε στην χώρα του κομφετί, όπου για 7 ολόκληρες μέρες έκανα μπάνιο σε καταράκτες ανοιξιάτικης ευτυχίας και ηλιαχτίδων.

Wow, I was away for just a week and however i feel that this place is totally devastated. Where I  was you may ask. Well I was kidnapped by a rhino, which was dressed as an old woman and through a hole we traveled in the colorful land of confetti, where for 7 whole days I was swimming in waterfalls of spring happiness and sunshine.

Τα πρωινά μοιράζαμε τον χρόνο μας ανάμεσα σε γαλλικές πατισερί και ατέλειωτες βόλτες.

In the mornings we divided our time between French patisseries and endless walks.

 Τα μεσημέρια ταλανιζόμασταν απο διλήμματα του τύπου: "να φάμε αυτήν την σαλάτα ή αυτήν την πίτσα;"

The rest time of the day we had dilemmas: "whether to to eat this salad or that pizza".

Τα απογεύματα αναρωτιόμασταν πόση δημιουργική δουλειά και έμπνευση μπορούν να χωρέσουν σε ένα παζάρι και ...

In the afternoons we wondered how much creative work and how much inspiration can fit into a bazaar and ...

...σιγομουρμουρμουρίζαμε γαλλικές μελωδίες κάτω από εντυπωσιακούς πολυελαίους γαλλικών μπιστρο.

... we were mumbling French melodies beneath  impressive chandeliers of lovely French bistro.

Τα βράδια βάφαμε παλιά καδρόνια με μπογιά για μαυροπίνακες και...

In the evenings we were painting old rafters with paint for blackboards and ...

... πηγαίναμε για λάιβ και ποτο σε μπαράκια μέσα σε στενά σοκάκια.

... we were attending bars in narrow alleys for live concerts and a drink.

 Κατα τα άλλα, η αναζήτηση καρδιών για το "Follow your Heart, Project" δεν σταματά ποτέ!

Of course, the hearts' search for the "Follow your Heart, Project" never stops!

She founded In Whirl of Inspiration, back in 2011 when she was (just) a biology student, in the island of Crete.
