To share the passion for sailing and traveling with similar people is one of the gifts of having a blog. Meet travelers and mutually motivate each other and also you, fantastic! Still uncertain in pursuing your dreams? Alberto lives his dream since 12 years ago.
A few days ago we were in the garage Thessaloniki train in which we find many clothes and nearly new blankets. We did not know the reason why they left so many belongings on the train, we assume that in the time that enabled the camps, the refugees left the train hoping to leave soon from Greece without knowing they would have to stay so long in the fields . But now winter comes again and they are still here.

At the moment the country is in full development, they are repairing the roads and complying with a strict and demanding urban plan in which they are pulling down a lot of houses built without license.
