About this Blog
When I started this blog several years ago, I was writing about my love of Thessaloniki. Today, as the times have changed too, my blog has evolved into an exploration of my life when it comes to my dreams and passions in travel, relationships, love and my faith. This blog is part of my heart. Writing has always been my outlet, and sharing my life with the world is something very special to me. While Meet Me in Thessaloniki began as a journey of remembrance with me, it now continues as the next steps I’ve taken in my life. Since 2009, Thessaloniki has been a part of me. It continues to change me and my heart every day. That’s why I feel each post I write has a connection to Greece, to my love of Thess. It’s a celebration of being alive and figuring out the difficult parts of the world, and of being a 28-year-old expat. I hope those of you that read this blog will feel inspired, challenged, and understand a kindred spirit between each of us. In these writings you will see a piece of my soul.
I encourage your comments and follows. I want to write for myself and for you- so please feel free to send your requests via the comments section.
