Autumn promises the smell of winter coming on... I love winter, Christmas, the snow and the cold!

Not long ago I'd rather see my glass half empty than half full. I usually made negative thoughts about almost everything.Then I decided to get over this negativity which was killing me. I downloaded an ebook called "Yes to Life" for only $8 and this ebook changed my life completely. My thoughts have changed my life for the better in very little time and continue to do so as I learn more. I still experience negative feelings, though it doesn't happen as often and as distressingly as before. I now know how to talk myself into feeling better.

Now, I love this dish of Cyprus ravioli for three reasons: 1. I love halloumi cheese! 2. I love pasta. 3. I love the combination of these two ingredients. I like cooking and I can get a bit adventurous, so I promise I'll try this recipe soon! :-) Keep your fingers crossed!

As Alexia said, love is the essence of life. It is the driving force that leads to fulfilment.

I love Greek dances and I strongly identify with them. Like many Greek families, mine celebrated all our events with dance. My greatest joy as a child was looking forward to two seasons: spring and summer. In springtime, when sounds of protomayia echo everywhere- the first of May, all of Greece is dressed in a petticoat of red poppies. There are picnics and rituals of gathering wild flowers that date back to ancient times. Some of the most memorable days in my early childhood were the late winter Carnival celebrations before Lent, and the grandest holiday of all—Easter! As a child, I spent summertime in my grandparents’ village in Crete. Every weekend, various chapels in the nearby villages celebrated a saint’s day with a feast. People gathered under the shade trees preparing foods. My uncles played bouzouki and lyra setting the pace for all to dance. That's how I learned to dance Pendozalis.

I like both trahanas and fish soup, so I guess I'd love this amazing combination!

The Vikos Gorge is probably the best hiking area in Greece. The views of Pindos are truly amazing!

You look very chic in your black outfit, but I'd expect you to wear black and white on a Black & White night theme... Accidents happen all the time. I'm glad your romantic night didn't end in disaster!

I fell in love with indian food when I first visited India 5 years ago. I like a lot of Indian dishes such as their cheese and paneer dishes but my favourites are kuttu ki puri, hara bhara kebab and kalkan biryani. When travelling to southern India, I had the chance to taste some of the country's hottest curries.

I've been to Switzerland twice but just for business, I didn't really have the time to explore the country. I hope I will one day :-) Glad to see that you had such a great time with your family.

Your daily schedule at work seems crazy to me! Teachers in Greece, both in public and private schools have at least a 20-min break in between classes. I wish you to be always strong and patient and may the new school year be constructive for you. I also have a very crazy schedule as I often have to travel abroad. I spend a lot of time in Germany, then I may go back to Greece for a couple of days, work at the office from 6 am to after midnight, sleep 2-3 hours before I catch the next flight to Germany and from there I have at least 4-5 trips a month to other European cities. But...I'm still alive!!!

I greatly enjoyed watching the videos you've posted. I saw Jonathan Livingston years ago and loved it not only for the music but also for its brilliant photography. So, Be is one of my favourite songs but the one I listen to all the time is Haroula's To Tango tis Nefelis. I love Haroula Alexiou and have almost all her CDs and a small collection of the vinyl records. Ola Se Thimizoun is yet another song by Haroula that I enjoy very much. To me she is the greatest voice Greece has ever known.

I had this dish for the first time a few years ago at a restaurant in Athens owned by a Cypriot and loved it so much that the following day I ordered a dozen to take away. Absolutely delicious!
