Viva Roma


Next month Rome comes in the plans! Yes Rome! So here is where I will need your help.

If you have visited the Eternal city you are my man/woman. If you did, please tell me about the areas that you should walk to, to feel the city's pulse, about cool places there, like bars with fancy cocktails, pretty rustic restaurants, galleries, the perfect-to visit exhibitions (for 5-9 of October), thrift stores with vintage clothing or other vintage treasures and any outlet stores with brands? Generally, I am  interested in places that are not extremely touristic.

Please share! :)

Τον επόμενο μήνα το πρόγραμμα έχει Ρώμη! Και εδώ είναι που θέλω την βοήθειά σας. Αν έχετε επισκεφτεί ποτέ την αιώνια πόλη, είστε οι άνθρωποί μου! Περιοχές τις πόλης που πρέπει να περπατήσεις για να νιώσεις τον παλμό της πόλης, συνοικιακά μπαράκια, ρουστίκ εστιατόρια, ενδιαφέροντες εκθεσιακούς χώρους, εποχιακές εκθέσεις (για το διάστημα 5-9 Οκτωβρίου ), μαγαζιά με vintage θησαυρούς ή στοκ μάρκες και γενικά όχι πολύ τουριστικά μέρη.



Déspina Kortesidou

Déspina Kortesidou was born with the April flowers sometime in the '90s in the sunny peninsula of Greece. She is a graduating master student of neuroscience & metabolism, and a born adventurer.

(3rd person statements sound so official, love it)

She founded In Whirl of Inspiration, back in 2011 when she was (just) a biology student, in the island of Crete. In Whirl of Inspiration started as a creative and writing outlet for when studying molecules, became too monotonous. Recently, she started writing a children book and a not-so-children's book about the civil war in Greece. She has a soft spot for cheese, elder people, and (her own) jokes, but can't tell any as she ruins them by laughing too early. She enjoys sharing advice for eating healthier, or inspiring people to cover themshelves with plants, color and confetti.

Feel free to email her at, or find her on Instagram and Twitter. (breaking the 3rd person narration to thank you properly)

Thank you so much for reading!
