Last post…

I haven’t updated my blog for long. During that time I visited my friends in Cologne (pics can be found here) where I had a great time, I have been working on my thesis project and I have been partying as much as I could! So, I had not that much time for blogging 😀

This is my last night in Denmark. I will share with you some of my thoughts. Disclaimer: I haven’t spent that much time on them, so don’t expect too much. Here it goes.

Erasmus Project is the best thing that can happen in your student life. For sure. Living with people from around the globe, people who love traveling and sharing their experiences with you is the best part. Only after 3 months here, I feel my room mates like my family… I feel sad for leaving them…

Erasmus Project broadens your horizons. There are so many new things to see and learn. So many people to contact. So many memories to keep.

Denmark is a beautiful country. Everything runs smoothly. There is a reason for everything. You can lead a peaceful life here. I liked that. I don’t say that I want to live here because there are soooooooo many places that I want to explore. But I could live here. For my Greek folks, please, don’t try to make any comparisons with Greece…

Danish people are “?”. That’s it. You can’t name a nation. To be honest, I met a few Danish because exchange students like us hang out with international people mostly. So, I met some smiley faces, really interested in listening your story, but I also met some who just didn’t care. But generally speaking, Danish are polite and if you treat them right, they respect you. This is very important to me. 

Danish language is sooooo difficult and a bit ugly for my taste. I prefer Spanish 🙂

Spanish people are sooooo cool! I have been living with lots of them and we get on really well! De puta madre!

Exchange students in general though are cool. I mean, they have chosen to do this trip, so they feel like doing it. Therefore, all of them are friendly, always there to help you, willing to party at anytime! So, after second thoughts, Spanish don’t have something special :p

The fee that my home university pays me every month is sooo good (aprox 630 euros). Spanish for example, they get 150 euros.

All in all, erasmus is a great experience. I would have made a huge mistake if I didn’t taste it. I’m lucky 🙂 So, for you who still have the chance, go for it! For the rest, I feel sorry :p

Now comes the aknowledgments. I first want to thank my sweet parents for helping me mentally and financially. Their support has been tremendous. I just LOVE them! The weird thing is that I didn’t miss them 😀 I also want to thank all my new friends for the great moments that we shared! Pablo, Kike, Nikola, Teresa, Ione, Renato, Pedro, Reynald, Maurissio, Roberto, Ramon (both), Edita, Guillermo, Joao, Dimitris, Argyris, Haris, George, Vicky, Joana, Ola and so on (they are so many, for sure I miss some of them, sorry…)

Christmas, time for a swim!

Merry Christmas people! God Jul (in Danish)! Καλά Χριστούγεννα (in Greek)!

So, what’s the best thing to do on christmas day in Denmark? Just go for a swim! Me and Roberto, my Italian friend, after having for lunch a delicious risoto that he cooked, had a ride to the seaside. And I couldn’t resist the temptation, I had been thinking of it for the last month. So here it is!

traveling alone? my pleasure!

berlin

I just came back from my looong trip. It wasn’t that long at last, because when you travel time goes by so fast! What makes this trip different from the others is that I was traveling alone. Well, both at Paris and London I met some friends, but still I spent enough time wondering around on my own. How was it? Just great! Why? Continue Reading »

one looooong trip!

Excitement is the right word to describe my feelings! Let’s have a look.

Saturday night @ Copenhagen. Sunday morning, off I go! Sunday midday @ Berlin, by coach. Stop for 4 hours, when I plan to visit Checkpoint Charlie and Brandenburger Tor in a hurry. Then, back to the coach. After 16 hours I’ ll be in Paris! 1500 kms babe!

In Paris I’ll stay for 3 days and nights! LeWeb is the cause and I love it! So, on Thursday I’m  flying to London where I’m going to meet my friend Costantina who is going to host me 🙂  (thanks sweetie!) London is THE city!

Finally, on Monday morning I’m flying back to Copenhagen where I have a thesis to conduct 😉

So, during this week I’ ll try to sleep as less as I can, grab lots of experiences and make tons of pictures!!!

Of course, I have to thank my sponsors for their invaluable support!

It’s Saturday…

It’ rainy.

It’s cloudy.

It’s time for studying.

Sitting next to my window, I see the raindrops running across it. The brown leaves seek their last chance to keep their place on the branches of the trees. But it’ s tough.

In less than 2 hours, darkness will come over…

eestec = eternal love

You all know eestec. For those who don’t, the Electrical Engineering STudents’ European assoCiation is an organisation made by and for students studying ECE. We travel, we take lectures on other universities, we meet lots of new friends, we have fun!

Being a member of eestec LC Athens for the last 4 years, and also the chairman for the year 2007-08, I gained so many experiences, made good friends and traveled enough 🙂

So, if your are an ECE student around Europe and want to feel the enthusiasm of eestec, check here if there is an eestec Local Committee at your place. If not, you can contact me and we can figure it out 🙂

Check our workshop which was held in Athens back in April 2008. It was called “Renew Your Energy”, something that all the participants did!

Friday morning. I woke up a bit late. While having breakfast and surfing the web, I run across this post on opencoffee.gr (it’s in Greek), which was offering an almost free ticket for LeWeb, if you made a comment explaining how you would make the best out of this experience. After some thought, I gave it a try! Later that evening I got a positive response by George Tziralis, the mind and soul behind opencoffee.gr. I am the one to get the chance to meet all these “web people” networking, brainstorming and forming the future of web. I am really excited about that and really look forward to be among them! 

LeWeb in numbers.

1500 participants, more than 25 countries, 30 startups, 2 days, 2 parties, 1700+ euros for a late ticket (I got it 200 🙂  Watch this video for more info!

So, a huge thanks to opencoffee.gr for their initiative and I will do my best to gain as much as I can! Paris, here I come!
