Nίκος και Aθηνά
They met in a sunny morning of May in 2006, at the check in for Budapest in El. Venizelos International Airport of Athens. In Budapest, between the gulaschuppe and duck legs, we… warm up our “connected” single beds. We depart from Athens as strangers and we came back as couple.
Our common live was full of trips. We got drunk with Guinness and Budweiser in Belfast. We “fed” (ie. bet) the horses in St. Patrick’s Day and “kissed” a huge fish.
We chattered in Hyde Park in London and we had been enchanted by the beautiful sounds of Covent Garden. We took pictures with the love… George “Martini” Clooney and Spiderman in the most overrated museum in the World… the Madame Tussauds.
In Tunis, all Nikos’ hopes were faded away, since the horseman Bedouin brought Athina back in Sahara instead of taking her with him. He didn’t last more than 5′ with her!
Then we’ve been in Myconos, Santorini, Heraklio (Crete), Patmos & Kusadaci and we ascertained that we match in every place we go. At sea, air or mountain!
Then we moved together! Test drive for our common future! Nikos met “Monica” and Athina met “Chandler” and we were so good together that we decided to visit Friend’s city! New York baby!!! For 8 days we were walking around the city, feeling the rythm of the city. We watched the Knicks, walked (barely 15m) in Harlem and listen to jazz and RnB and ate delicious ribs.
While being in the flight back to Athens, Nikos proposed … for the 48th time!!!
Athina’s answer came after a year and a half in another flight. While getting back from the city of angels and the California roadtrip (ok we went also in Nevada, Las Vegas).
When we arrived at El. Venizelos International Airport of Athens, the place were all begun, we knew that we won’t stick to that. We’re now “flying” towards Volissos, Chios. In the magnificent beaches with the cold waters. In an area that ouzo is more than an aperitif and syrtos more than a dance… but a way of life! We are flying towards… Agia Markella…
