My Week in Athens… Aug 30
I'm enjoying this break from the heat! Sure, blue skies and sunshine are fantastic (and, let’s be honest, part of what makes Greece beautiful). But the 40+ heat of the past few weeks has left me lethargic and ‘slow’…

So on we go to warm breezes and cool evenings – and still that wonderful sun.

This week has been a quiet one. Feels like the ‘seasonal transition’ has started – summer is on its way out, and autumn is on its way in. I love this. It’s an important part of life, and helps us to shift gears and move forward in many ways. What’s often unclear is ‘what’s next’ – and I mean that both personally and for the country in general. I remember that ‘back to school’ feeling of childhood – when we would put on our new pair of pants and head off for the great unknown of a new school year.

I hope that autumn brings positive movement, or at least a feeling that things are moving in the right general direction!

Maybe that new pair of pants is a good idea. Or maybe what we need right now is just a good night out ;)

Until next week,


In this weekly space, keep up with ‘Jack’ as he navigates daily life in Athens… Anecdotes, stories, hits & misses, the good, the bad and, well, the rest…
