  • Greek Souvlaki

    I know that those of you who are in Greece right now or have been in Greece at some point, have tasted the famous greek souvlaki. Even during my erasmus people kept mentioning it once they found out I was Greek. Today, I will write down a very simple recipee, so that...

  • Greek honey

    Greek honey is of great quality and I want to dedicate this entry to it and its potential uses. It's great for your nutrition, but also for your skin and hair. Eat honey on your toast or put some in your tea. A friend of mine also gave me a very good idea: she has...

  • Easy cake recipee

    I love making desserts -even more than I love cooking meals. There's something special and festive about preparing candy, even if there is no special occasion to celebrate. Sometimes, though, you just need to have something sweet, so complex recipees won't work for you...

  • Greek Museum of Cars

    Yesterday, a friend invited me to go with her to the Greek Museum of Cars. Although I am not an enthusiast when it comes to cars, since I don't know many things about them, I decided to go with her, because I had read many articles, where a visit to it was recommended....

  • Meatballs (Keftedakia)

    Today I will write about a really famous greek recipee. I cooked it many times for my friends in erasmus and they all loved it, so I decided to share it with you as well. It's not particularly difficult, you just need to be patient, because it does require some time. I...

  • The Greeks' top 10 songs, according to Spotify

    Today, I decided to write down some information about the Greeks' taste in music. Instead of referring to Greek musicians -which I might do in the future - I will use Spotify's data for my country and comment on the results. First, let me say that in Greece we didn't...

  • Au Pair

    As I understand and share your post-erasmus depression, I will keep filling you in on ways to go and meet a foreign country. One of them is going to work as an Au Pair in a foreign country. One of my friends is actually working as an Au Pair in France, so I happen to...

  • Greek Weddings

    Last week, I was the maid of honour in a wedding, so I thought about writing you about my experience there, as well as inform you about certain greek wedding traditions. And, no,it's not that much like the movie “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”, although most foreign...

  • "Fried" potatoes in the oven

     Today, I will write about one of my very favourite meals fried potatoes or french fries or chips -no matter how you call it, it is absolutely delicious. It is normally on the side, but I could easily eat it as a main course as well. Here, I want to write a recipee I...

  • How I spent "Meat Thursday"

     In another one of my entries, I have mentioned the so-called “Meat Thursday” and how we celebrate it by going to costume parties but, most of all, by eating lots of meat! The other day, on the 20thof February, it was meat Thursday, so we gathered at a family...

  • Easter in Greece

     Many people falsely believe that us Greeks have our own Easter, because it is not celebrated on the same time period as most European countries. Well, this is not absolutely true. I mean, we do celebrate Easter on a different time, but it is not because it is greek...

    I am sure that those of you who have been erasmus students or are erasmus students right now, have had, at one point or another, dealt with a bad hangover. Well, I think that the first thing that comes to your mind is coffee. However, last year I learned that this is...

    The 25th of March is a very important holiday in Greece. Therefore, I will explain it to you, so that you know why you'll be having this day off. This is both a national and a religious holiday, which makes it even more important. The national holiday is about the...

  • Make-up tips

    During my erasmus year I hardly ever used any make up, because I was having that much fun, that I didn't even care to put any make-up on before leaving my house. However, I do like make-up and here I want to write some tips in case you want to have the best one on...

  • Banoffee

    Banoffee is one of my favourite desserts. The other day, my best friend's sister made one and I must say it was the best banoffee I have ever tasted. So, I asked her for the recipee and it is very easy -it doesn't the oven, except for its cookie base, that you need to...

  • The 28th of October

    The 28th of October might be an unknown or insignificant day for erasmus students around the world. So, why, you might ask, is it a national holiday for Greece? Why didn't you have your classes and why didn't the University even open on that day? In this entry, I will...

  • The rest of the UOA Libraries

    I will dedicate this post to the Libraries of the UOA, but also those of our Faculty (Law), so that it will be easier for you to search the books you might need as an erasmus student in Athens. I have already mentioned the Students' Club and its Library: 15,...
