Myrtos beach, Kefalonia
Hola chicas y chicos!
I am spending my Summer holidays on my island, Kefalonia. It is a beautiful Greek island, located between Greece and Italy. It belongs to the Seven Islands and it has a total population of around 36000 -my town, Argostoli, has less than 10000 people. It seems quite small, eh? However, I can guarantee you that the people here are so loud, that it makes up for their small number. The island is full of life and energy. I grew up and spent all my childhood and teenage years here, till I turned 18 -at that point, I left to pursue all my academic goals and get to know the world. Currently, it’s the 9th year that I am away. I don’t come back often (I guess twice a year is not considered to be “often”), however, every time I come back, I try to make the best out of my time here and enjoy moments with my family, as well as go around the island and enjoy its numerous beauties!
The previous week, we visited 3 of my favourite spots on the island: the famous Myrtos beach, Assos and Fiskardo. I took many photos, and right now I will share with you my favourite ones, and give you a taste of Kefalonia.
Come with me, then!
I hope that you are all doing well and that you are enjoying your holidays.
Currently, I am back to my island, Kefalonia. If you follow my Instagram/Facebook page, then you know that I’ve been in the UK, for a couple of weeks. I have so much to say about this amazing experience, that I will make a separate Blog post for that -very soon. However, I still owe you a post about the Botanical garden of Bratislava, so I thought that I should prepare this one, first. 😉
I may not be the wisest person in town, but these past 5 years in Med school I have been challenged physically and emotionally enough, in order to make some golden rules of survival. So I thought, why not share them with others, on my Blog?
We are all together in the boat called “Med school”, and by sharing our wisdom, we can help each other face all kinds of difficult situations. Besides, when you see that others go through the same things as you do, you get this very warm and nice feeling that you are not alone in this.
Here I go!
As you may know from my Instagram/Facebook page (or by personally knowing me, let’s not forget that:p), I have recently finished my 5th year as a Medical student. Only one more year is left! It’s amazing how fast time passes by. So, I thought, why not write 5 lessons that I have learned (the hard way), during the past 5 years of my life, as a Med student? This can serve as an inspiration to you, but also to me -every time I neglect one of these points, I can come back here, read what I wrote and start all over again.
Here we go!
Well, I don’t know about you, but personally I always panic when one of my male friends/relatives celebrates a special occasion and I need to get him a gift. If it is a gift for a female friend, you can never go wrong with high quality cosmetics/skin care products, or pretty and feminine accessories -at least, in most of the cases. But if it is for a guy? All I can think of is the case of my cousin: I used to get him an aftershave, for every special occasion, for many, many years. Name day. Birthday. Christmas. Easter. Successful examination. And many other times. No kidding, one day I visited him and I discovered a shelf full of aftershaves. It seems that I was not the only one who was going for the easy solution and was getting this particular gift for him. It was so embarrassing, I never bought an aftershave for anyone, after that!
So, over the years, I have made a small list of gift ideas for guys. Of course, not everyone is the same and not everyone is going to like everything out of this list. However, you can get some ideas and judge by yourselves if they match the particular person you have in mind.
