Hello, people of the wide world!
I am Dimitrios and this is my blog.
I am… just a random man, basically. Nothing’s too very special about me. There isn’t any noun which could follow my name and give an adequate description of my person, as in ‘I am that guy and I am a… whatever.’ I have been given birth in a certain location on this earth, but I do not feel like being a national of any country. I have done a great many of different jobs throughout my life, but I do not have any profession. I have always been trying to learn the most I can, but I am not an expert in anything. I daydream pathologically, but I do not have any grand aspirations.
If there was any one force which has been my life’s paramount impulsion and the centre of my existence, that would be my curiosity. Things have always been too perplexing to me. Ever since I remember myself, an irresistible desire to understand them has been burning ardently within my soul. I would like to know everything that is to be known; do everything that is to be done; be everywhere where there is to be. I admit I would like to be a god. But I’m only a human.
I was born in 1987 on the outskirts of Athens and I grew up in Chalkis, capital city of Euboea, second largest island of Greece. Throughout my childhood, I was mainly concerned with having fun. And I have nothing to complain about, I had lots of it. I never liked school all that much. After taking great pains I managed to graduate from the secondary school, whereafter I quit my formal education. Until this very day, I consider that decision of mine to be one of the wisest I’ve ever made in my life. That was the time I made a great leap towards freedom.
Narrating the events of my life ever since would be a complicated and voluminous task. What I may say is that, letting myself to the guidance of intuition and the whim of emotion, I threw myself into a haphazard wandering around the world, seeking thrilling adventures and profound excitement. Now, going through my adulthood, I’m still concerned mostly with having fun.
About this website
This isn’t a niche website of any sort. To say it is a personal blog would get much closer, but what I think defines it best would be to say it is an outlet for my creativity. Just like the most of us I believe, I very much enjoy creating. You know, that kind of thing when a vague, abstract idea takes over your brain and you strive to transform it into something that can be touched or seen or heard or communicated in any way. My brain is constantly pervaded, to the point of suffering, by torrents of such raging ideas which demand to acquire concreteness. This blog is a medium to communicate what comes out of them to the world. These ideas of mine are of a highly diverse nature, so does this website host miscellaneous content.
Thanks a lot for having visited my blog! I deeply wish you’ll find something to excite your interest on it!
The content of this website
Traveling the world happens to be my principal occupation. Even though this website isn’t solely a travel blog, one of the main reasons that prompted me to create it is to pass on to the world all those intriguing situations I experience throughout my trips. Here’s my site’s section where you find the collection of my travel stories.
There are many things I’m in love with, but if there was that one thing I love the most, that would be mountains and nature. In this section of my site, you may read stories from my crazy, often solitary trekking adventures around the world’s wild natural wonders.
One of the best things about traveling the world is having the chance to meet with all those different people living out there. Indeed, I consider myself a very fortunate man for having crossed ways with such an astounding variety of peculiar characters from all around the world; characters whose inspiring, funny, or just weird stories, I will always be keeping in my mind as precious memories. Thinking of this, it was I decided to start this section on my blog where I will be working on a collection of the most remarkable and intriguing stories of such characters I have chanced to witness.
Here’s where I keep the various things I write which do not fit in any of the above categories; whether articles on different topics or reviews or just any random thoughts.
This is the section of my site where I post all the good photos I take during my trips around the globe. You may here find more than 8,000 pictures organized in 350+ location-based photo albums, with newer ones being uploaded regularly. Every album contains a slideshow and, often, a short piece of information related to the corresponding place you’re seeing depicted.
One of the things I enjoy doing the most is playing the guitar. In this section of my site, you may watch videos of songs I’ve written and covers I’ve made of other songs I like.
This is my site’s section where I keep a collection of all the videos I shoot around the world. See if there is anything to sparkle your interest in the various playlists.
Γεια σας φίλες και φίλοι ελληνόφωνοι όλου του κόσμου! Η πρωτεύουσα γλώσσα αύτης της ιστοσελίδας είναι η αγγλική, ωστόσο έχω προσθέσει και έναν τομέα όπου δημοσιεύω υλικό στην ελληνική. Αυτό περιλαμβάνει:
Εδώ μπορείτε να πληροφορηθείτε σχετικά με το φέρον τον άνωθεν τίτλο βιβλίο που έχω συγγράψει στα ελληνικά και αφηγείται τις περιπέτειες μου κατά την διάρκεια ενός επικού χερσαίου ταξιδίου από άκρη σε άκρη της Αφρικανικής Ηπείρου.
Εδώ θα βρείτε μία συλλογή από ιστορίες για τα ταξίδια μου ανά τον κόσμο και άλλα διάφορα.
