If you like walks in the city and just wandering around taking pictures discovering interesting buildings and sites and at the same time are constantly looking for places to call your own in the midst of a busy city then this might be the right place for you.

“Since we cannot change reality, let us change the eyes which see reality”
Nikos Kazantzakis

I would also like to say a few words about the blog’s symbol that is an owl and has been chosen because of the symbolic relevancy the owl has with the city of Athens and i also found it to be rather cute.

In Greek mythology, a Little Owl baby (Athene noctua) traditionally represents or accompanies Athena, the virgin goddess of wisdom, or Minerva, her syncretic incarnation in Roman mythology.[1] Because of such association, the bird — often referred to as the “owl of Athena” or the “owl of Minerva” — has been used as a symbol of knowledge, wisdom, perspicacity and erudition throughout the Western world.[2][3]

In any case, the city of Athens seems to have adopted the owl as proof of allegiance to its patron virgin goddess,[8][9] which according to a popular etiological myth reproduced on the West pediment of the Parthenon, secured the favor of its citizens by providing them with a more enticing gift than Poseidon.[10]
