The Sea :

This year I was not able to visit my home country

for obvious reasons.

I was looking at old photos of the amazing Greek summer and felt so blessed to come from such a beautiful country.

My family always had a close relationship with the sea:

Both me and my brother were born in water.

My grandfather was an a sponge diver till his late days.

My father and mother were both big fans of sailing and windsurfing.

Both myself and my brother served in the military as Scuba divers.

And as the tradition goes, myself and my brother almost become sick if we don’t go in the sea at least once a week. ( that’s why I am always going to Izu once a week )

Last year one of my dreams to own my own boat and sail across the islands came true.

This year we were planning to sail for 3 months with my friends but it could not happen.

I am looking forward to next year.

I added a few photos of me and my family , the boat and my home in Athens.

PS: bonus funny photo. Even my brothers wedding was held in sea.

    Hellotalk allow meeting between very different people and it's so great. Your background is quite interesting. You seem to have a strong connection with sea ! I would like to see your country one day ! Though being in Japan, you're not far from water !
