Redwood National Forest


♫ ♪  Fleet Foxes - Ragged Wood

Capturing all that beauty  ( Kristina from Poppi Photography ) and be able to see it again and again (that's me, for whom I am talking now), can only give you multiple chills of warm waves of euphoria. Today's daydreaming took place at the Redwood National Park. Now, say thanks to the tallest tree species on Earth (over 100m), a.k.a. the coast redwoods, for that magnificent experience.

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!
