Berlin Science Week

I started thinking at my life so far when I was in the Naturkunde Museum, during Berlin Science Week, while surrounded by children (and dinosaurs). Growing up, I did not had the opportunity to attend this type of events.

Berlin Science Week was a 10 days international festival with innovative scientific organizations, a different type of travel experience, and most important, a reminder to stay curios and optimistic.

Meteora – suspended in air

Even though many years have passed, I remember the morning we left for Meteora, the place that impressed me the most in Greece. Luckily I also took notes.

Meteora is a huge rocky complex located in the valley of Thessaly, not far from the Pindus mountains, with centuries old monasteries. Means suspended stones or suspended in the air. The landscapes left me speechless – an imposing rock formation, which seem to float.

Kalimera. Greek Journey

Greek islands and their mythology have always fascinated travelers. Corfu is an island with a rich history where many civilization left their mark. Where time seemed to move at a slower pace.

Grateful for the greek food & good coffee, the Ionian Sea, and the melody of their language. What I got to see, hear, feel and live every day in Greece brought me a lot of appreciation.

Wiener Melange

Baroque splendor, Gustav Klimt and landmarks in golden Vienna around which I built some of my days. Plus hours with no plan when I just wandered the Viennese streets in a private emotional experience.

Nothing beats the quality of life of Vienna. I felt a connection in 2015 when I came here the first time and I am grateful to continue to explore the city’s art scene, museums, buildings on Ringstrasse and coffeehouse culture.

From Paris with Art

Art o’clock. Classic and modern art. Not a visit possible in Paris without many croissants, Eiffel Tower views and at least one museum. What I learned about art and time is not a lot, but here it is – c’est ici – Traveling, reading books, never stop learning, speaking French, making time visiting museums, are all investments in myself – that help me see the bigger picture.

Brussels briefing

Briefing from the European capital – a promenade bruxelloise and Belgian days, years later, on memory lane, thinking in French. I could walk for hours in Bruxelles, among paths imprinted in my heart, in a city that felt like home from day one. Beautiful corners in places I’ve been with details I’ve never noticed, and moments I remember.

And a thought – no matter the choice, if we leave or return, we’ll always miss something.

Something new in Frankfurt

Something new, an old town and blue sky. Plus Apfelwein, handkäse, and why not, schnitzel with Frankfurt green sauce. Few of my notes during a spring day on Frankfurt am Main are below. Some call it Mainhatten for a reason, since is an international hub in Europe and the only city in Germany with skyscrapers, but for me will always be the city of books.

Rediscoved Lisboa

The different areas of Lisbon are as a puzzle, but I remember pieces from my journey here years ago, as I celebrate the present. Across hills, stairs and elevators, I am rewarded with viewpoints, sunshine, water reflections, spring weather, many pastéis de nata, coffee breaks, as I explore the narrow streets and enjoy the city in my rhythm.

And just like that, I overdid it and I would do it again.

Berliner Philharmonie

The joy to discover the musical diversity in Berlin. This January I finally attended a concert at Philharmonie in KulturForum, that turned out to be a celebration of European friendship. And during Schubert Week at Pierre Boulez Saal, the conductor Thomas Hampson wished us to enjoy the music, because after all, we are in Berlin, one of the most incredible cities in the world.
