Im on top of the world

We did something crazy today. My friend Anna and I. Spontaneously we drove all the way to Embona to be able to drive all the way up to the top of the highest mountain here in Rhides. Attavyros mountain, 1215 meters above the sealevel. Like this wouldn't be an adventures itself we realized half way there that we don't have much petrol left I'm the car, but hey? What is an adventure with no adventure in it, right? We made it to the top and all the way to the gas station, so no problems. 

It's always been in my mind to go up there but I thought I would have to walk and in this heat it's a little too much. But we'll do it again. But not until October and then we will walk all the way up... Right Anna?? 

I don't have much more to say, I'll let. The pictures talk instead. But I had an amazing afternoon! 

When are you going to do something with your life?

There's  two different things with this living abroad I hate. Two questions that drives me crazy, ruins my day. 

First one is - when are you gonna do something with your life? 
Second one is - what does your parents think about you not getting an education or getting a real job? 

I'm doing more with my life than most people that only wants to get an education and then get a job and save money. I do save money so that I can see what the world has to show me, and that my dear friends is definitely to do something with your life! I'm not saying you're doing wrong and I'm doing right BUT if this is what I wanna do for the next 5 or maybe even 10 years why are you concerned about it? I promise I'm doing fine. I don't care if you spend 5 years of your life in school while I spend 5 years seeing the world. School, kids and get married is something I can do later, but travel the world when you have children and so on is not as easy as for me. But I think you all should try it. 

And then the second one - what my parents think? They tell me they're happy about me doing what I love and what I wanna do and I'm pretty sure they're being honest. And why should they care? I get myself around (most of the time) and I save money from what the jobs I get pay me and then I travel. It's not like I borrow money for this... I don't know why this would be such a big problem for some people out there. If this is what I wanna do why the hell should my parents care about it? I'm not a criminal. 

So please please please,  I'm asking you to think what you're doing with your life before judging mine. 

Sorry if this was a little rough but it needed to get it out, and if you're enjoying me traveling the world and like to follow my adventure - then don't care about this post! Love you! 


The war...

There's been a war in Rhodes since I got here. A war between us and the barstreet people. A war I won't be a part of anymore, takes too much of my energy and why should I fight with people I have no reason to fight with. Some (and I only mean some) of them are actually nice. 

For those of you who haven't been here or know much about this island. Here comes the story about the island. Rhodes is the BIG partyisland for Scandinavians. Younger Scandinavians. And a lot the people working there are from Sweden and Norway. Which makes it even a bigger party place. It's also a big party place for English people but they live 20 k south of town so we don't have to deal with that here. Haha 

I've been at the bar street a couple of times but it's not a place for me. I'm waaaay too old. Haha! 

New day and new possibilities

Yesterday's post wasn't very happy, sorry about that. 

For all of you that texted me last night, first of all thanks. I love you guys! But dont worry, I'm always fine and you know I won't give up. I'm almost half way thru my summer here and I'm not going home before October! Greece is too amazing for me to leave a place like this, and one of you told me last night that it'll all be the same when I go home so why are you not just enjoying Rhodes while you can? And that's exactly what I'll try to do. And what I've tried to do since I got here too. 

Today is a nice day, the thermometer shows +35 C, 95 F, and  just packed my bag to go to the beach.
