Travel Blogger Series: Athena at Glimpses of A

Posted on May 15, 2013 by Alexis Galvez | 19 Comments

At Lydali we're in love with exploring new places and new stories, and we're excited to share the travel stories of Athena Benisi of the blog Glimpses of A. Athena is an interior design student studying in Athens, and when she's not researching product design she's blogging about travel, fashion, and design. 

1. What's your home town?

I am born and raised in Athens, Greece. 

2. Where do you live now?

I currently live in Athens, Greece but I am soon to move to London, UK for a Master’s Degree, which I couldn’t be more excited about!!

3. What's the last trip you've taken?

I’ve taken a lot of small trips here in Greece, but my last trip abroad was a tour of Cote d’Azur (the French Riviera) in June 2012. We departed from Patra, Greece and sailed to Ankona, Italy. Then we visited Bologna, Milan, a couple of small villages along the way to Marseille where we stayed for a couple of nights. After Marseille we stayed in Nice, France and then had a trip to Monte Carlo. Then back to Milan, Parma and home! I love those kind of trips-tours that there is the opportunity to experience lots of different places and their local culture.

4. What's the next trip on your itinerary?

I am planning with some friends to visit Italy, possibly Sicilia in summer. It is not fixed yet, there are some more places dropped on the table, like Ibiza or Portugal. Certainly, we want to go somewhere with lots of sun and sea!! This will be the trip after our graduation so we want it to be extra-relaxing!

5. What's a place you want to go back to again and again?

Anyone who knows me, will roll their eyes with this answer, but the truth is I love London! I’ve only been once, in 2011, but I fell in love instantly. I loved the atmosphere, the people’s vibe, every little corner of it actually, and of course people’s style! Londoners are soooo well dressed!! So you can imagine my happiness when I learned that I got accepted for my further studies there! A dream come true! 

6. What's your favorite thing you've brought back from your travels? 

Well, I try to bring back lots of things from my trips, apart from clothes of course!! I have a magnet collection that I love, which is from trips of the last 2 years. As for my favorite I think I have 5 from different locations. The first one is a frame from Barcelona, which was really inexpensive but holds such memories because it was the first trip me and my sister took abroad together.The second one would be a London telephone booth poster and some cards I bought from London, which I have in my room an give an illusion of me being there (not really but one can dream!!). The third one would be a traditional handmade mask I bought from Venice, which is music themed and I keep on top of my piano. Fourth one is a little Vespa-globe I bought from Rome and last one is a little lighter that looks like a casino mark, found in the Casino of Monte Carlo, which I found really clever an brought back lots for my friends.

7. If you could visit one country Lydali works in, which country would it be?

I’d love to visit India. I want to experience the different culture of an Eastern country as well as their lifestyle. I am also in for everything food related, I believe I would try everything once. So when in India, one of my main occupations would be to try everything that has to do with food, since their cuisine is so different that our Greek one!!

8. What are your travel essentials?

I tend to carry much more than needed with me when travelling. I pack them in small pouches and divide them by use. As an essential I would consider my books! I tend to bring 2-3 books with me, in case I run out (which never happens in a 5-day trip!). In my everyday bag when travelling you will find: wallet(!), a couple of lip balms, mascara+face powder, tissue+antiseptic wipes, my mini pharmacy, a book, a scarf (in case of temperature drop) and possibly a pen and notepad.

Thanks Athena for joining us for our travel blogger series! Check out more of Athena's blog here, and follow her on Twitter and Instagram.

Although they agree on the date, July 15, they revealed they will not wed for a few more years. Download Mama’s Song RingtonePRLog (Press Release) – Oct. In 1983, Schultz went on vacation to Milan, Italy, and became infatuated with the idea of coffee bars, places where gourmet coffee was served not in beans, but by the cup, and where people could come to meet and relax. Then hard work made extraordinary skill seem like a natural talent. Few bag brands can catch the elegance and authentic quality that Kelly Bags impress us.

Creating a Positive Self ImageOften, before you can use affirmations with hypnosis to begin changing your financial situation, you need to overcome the negative feelings about yourself. Before this win, Miami had never beaten a number one team in six tries.

And so it went for several years. Road rage can be deadly—it is not unheard of for angry drivers to get so out of control that the incident ends tragically. While there are numerous types of oral vitamin D supplements SOLD as capsules or tablets, most of these over-the-counter preparations which are readily available for purchase, unfortunately, because they are ingested, D are often absorbed by the organs of the body or are passed through the body and seldom provide maximum benefits to the penis.
