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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

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!Β 

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 πŸ™‚ Β 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!

It’s true. I do many things, I meet lots of new people, I face different situations. I like it! Actually, I love it!

So, after almost 20 days here, I like this place! I feel I’ m lucky!Β 

For the last 5 days, I had been hosting 2 friends of mine. We hang around together, went sightseeing and partying, cool stuff!Β 

Right now in our kitchen, there are more than 15 people. We had dinner! Nikolas, a Greek, has cooked plenty of pastitsio! And Pedro, a Brasilian, has cooked 45 coxinha! Now we are full!


It is nice to be an erasmus student in container K!!!

Kampsax vs Databar

Well, for all DTU erasmus exchange students these 2 words mean plenty of things. For those who just hear them for the first time:

Kampsax is a cafe-pub-club that every Thursday hosts the most successful party at the campus. I’ ve been there only once, cause I’ve been here since last Monday, but I really liked it! And when you have a great company, like I do, things are much better πŸ™‚


Databar are rooms with pc’s spread around the campus and dedicated to studying. They are open 24/7 and you enter with your student magnetic card. The fact that most of the Danish people talk to each other while studying is quite annoying. If you need silence, then you have to find an empty databar… Like this one.dscn76062

So, it is now made clear that the title of this post can be rewritten “Partying vs Studying”. The obvious answer is Kampsax! However, I am working on a project that requires studying πŸ™‚

Therefore, I try to spend my time doing both. What about you? What do you thing an erasmus student should do more?

first impressions

I’ ve been in Copenhagen for 7 hours and I really like it! I live with all the other exchange students of DTU at the campus village (pic), so we are all together! At my app there are 9 rooms and we all share the kitchen and the bath. My appmates are really cool, as all exchange students do! They have been very helpful and I can see that we will get on extremely well! 4 of them are Spanish, 2 Brazilians, 2 Greeks (including me) and 1 French. So, I will sure improve my spanish, cause you all know that my Portuguese are already excellent πŸ™‚

Keep up with my picks on flickr!

Hugs from chilly but refreshing Lyngby!

Yorgos in and out

p.s. take a look at my internet connection πŸ˜€
