The story from Greece (by campervan) in 29 pictures

This is the last Greece post! It’s the story from the past 7 months. Also see the other post on 13 reasons why I love Greece here

It was too cold in Bulgaria

I drove all night until I got to Greece. The guy at the border asked me where I was going. I didn’t know. I said “south”

and then to Athens

I spent days exploring every corner and alleyway on my bike. See post

I found this place called The Jedi Academy

I stayed for 6 weeks. There was music, fire, blankets, animals and amazing people. See post

These people

and Christian, who travels on his bike with a DIY fold up guitar

Meet him (and his guitar) here

We built a trapeze

And juggled fire

We did busking missions into the city

And food missions to the village

There was no electricity

just candles, instruments and people

but one night…

For a treat we got a PA system and powered it from my van using a big cable. We had a party

and there was that morning

and those winter sunsets

and that party in the squatted theatre

Then my family came to meet me

I cooked for us all in the van

We went to Santorini

and spent Christmas day on the beach

During this time, the blog was spreading fast

I was featured on several big websites–including the Guardian–which got me some money to keep me on the road a bit longer. See post

My family went back to England and I went back to the Jedi academy

but it was the end. We loaded the vans up and moved all the stuff

To a new location

I ended up staying for 2 months

and then I met Marti

She commented on the blog and I went to meet her in Athens. We drank a bottle of wine on the hill and talked about how they should teach dreaming at school. See post

So I spent 10 days in a flat in the middle of Athens

I used all the luxury home gadgets like the hair drier, kettle and a real bed. See post

She left her flat and job and we explored the Peloponnese

See the best bits in this post

We celebrated my one year living in a van

Marti went to Italy and I went north

But I didn’t know where

The next day I met with Sophie and Mike from Relaxedpace

Meet them in this post

Then I got a message from my friend

Yesss! See post. So I go to Macedonia

But one last stop: vikos gorge

And all during all of this…

I’ve been working on a project, which I’m pretty excited about. I will announce it soon 🙂

So it’s goodbye Greece

There were points I was just fully swept away in to the flow of things. I’ve never felt time going this fast before. It’s been 7 months in one country, but what a journey!

Thanks for having me
