Thoughts on the past year
This year has been a game-changer for me on so many levels; deciding on starting my blog (after at least 2-year deliberation) and experiencing all these events on my quest to offer you a unique perspective on cultural life in London. I am still pumped on all these little comments and followers and likes here, so above all I would like to thank each and every one of you – from all over the world – that take the time to read about my cultural experiences. I also promise you that I will keep on writing about the magic of London and what one can call, “that London feeling”.
From October, it has been a wild journey with its ups and downs. I learned a lot (still learning as it is), but the thing I know is to always do what I believe in deep in my heart. After all, doing what you love most will make you truly happy, no? Well, I can honestly say that I am beyond happy now. I have a wonderful family that always have my back, an exciting job that no two days are the same and this blog as a means of venting and expressing my thoughts and feelings. From art exhibitions to music gigs and from museums to concert halls, the journey has been enlightening to say the least, but I loved every single minute!
If you ask me what my best experience was, I’d definitely tell you the “Soul of the Nation” exhibition I attended back in October and most definitely my trip to Milan in the beginning of December. I enjoyed them the most and I hope you did too! So, if you ask me what’s next?
Plans for 2018
Well, 2018 is going to be full of arts and travels in and outside of the UK. I know, I know it’s not a travel blog, but like my trip to Italy, it happened (or will happen in this case) only once!
I definitely wait for the Leon of Athens album release gig in February if I remember well, so you will have a read about that as well. Also, the British Summer Time festival will take place in July and I will try to be there and report to you!
I think this is going to be a year full of exhibitions. I am planning to go to several and give you all my take of them. The first one is at the V&A (Opera: Passion, Power and Politics), which I’m really looking forward to. The other one, opening in February at the Fashion Museum in Bath is Royal Women. If you also know of anything, any other exhibition, please drop me a line and I will be sure to put it on my schedule.
At this point I would like to include a little fun fact about me; I am a huge film fan! I try to watch a lot during my free time. The Room will be coming to Prince Charles Cinema in February, and OMG I cannot wait! The last time we went there we had so much fun that we need to repeat that! If you’ve ever experienced that, you know what I’m talking about! Also, in May there’s the London Greek Film Festival taking place and I can tell you it’s as exciting as it sounds! I have been volunteering since 2014 and I can tell you that it is fascinating with world and UK premieres and Q&As with documentarists and directors. For all those of you living in London or planning to visit in May, it is worth a visit!
These are only some of my plans for the next few months of 2018. Other festivals and walks, and trips abroad (Viareggio is on my list!) will be featured here. Keep your eyes peeled, as it’s going to be super exciting!
