About

Hi all. I am Panayiotis (Panos for short). I am just a regular guy living in Athens, Greece. I love to travel around the world, find out about different cultures and ways of life and meet people from different places. As the Homer sings in the first lines of the Odyssey “to see many cities of men and learn of their minds”. This blog is where I like to write about my experiences

The name of the blog is a direct reference to C. P. Cavafy’s excellent poem “Ithaca”

“As you set out for Ithaca
hope that your journey is a long one,
full of adventure, full of discovery”

It is a poem about travelling and all kinds of journeys (including the great journey of life)

See here for more about this poem, including recitations in Engish (by Sean Connery) and the original Greek (by Elli Lampeti)

For all that are interested, I hope these stories will inspire to get started and continue your journeys. Come join me in the greatest adventure ๐Ÿ™‚
