Six Weeks Later: Goodbye Greece, Hello New York!

This post comes two days late because I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted to say.

Inside The White Tower

If you’re in Thessaloniki, even just for the day, the one place you need to visit is The White Tower. It’s the meeting place for many and a symbol for the city. The tower is part-monument and part-museum. For six euro you can go inside and walk up spiraling stairs to get a birds-eye view […]
