Encapsulating the beauty and diversity of people's souls.
Ask the universe and you shall the receive." That's what this amazing man kept saying to us through the days we spent together in Scotland.
It's a phrase I believe more and more as I grow up and realise how interconnected everything is. Be specific about you want and believe that you will get with all your heart.
Ask for it from the universe and you shall receive it.

Just before the fun begins
Grandpa Euthimis is responsible for his house's heavy-duty jobs such as cutting wood for the fireplace and carrying heavy bags of supplies for the winter. He may look rough but he is kind and warm always inviting us to join him at the table and share stories from his service in army.

The Green Lady
Girls of the meadows
I met these two beautiful girls at 8.30 am, after a magical night and an even more magical sunrise.
I saw their vividly colored clothes from afar as they were sitting on the dragon. I approached them and asked if I can take a picture. They said yes and immediately started to smile and pose joyfully at the camera.
I love how their cheerful faces get illuminated by the soft, early-morning sun as their colorful, cool clothes draw the eye's attention in front of a simple blue sky, acting as a background.
The one who got left behind.
Grandma Zacharoula is the sister of grandpa Euthimis.
As it was typical in these years you had to get married to leave your family home and start your own.
Unfortunately, grandma Zacharoula didn't find a husband so as tradition required it, she lived her life with her brother and his wife.
She wears a glove on her right hand because she had a stroke 15 years ago and she can't move it anymore.
That makes her story even more inspiring since she is still able to do all the chores that are needed to run the house. Clean, cook, feed the animals, help Grandpa with his daily chores and after all that she still had the mood to make jokes and conversations with us.
This incredible woman is living proof that age is just a number, not an excuse.
