It’s Saturday afternoon. It’s almost Easter time.
I arrived in Greece two days ago. My journey here was pretty uneventful although I did travel for almost 12 hours. I really don’t know how I managed to do that since Greece is only 4 hours flight away. It probably has to do with my mood when I was booking my flight. I was feeling quite stringy that day so I booked the cheapest possible flights which meant staying in the airport of Munich as a midway stop for 3.5 hours! It wasn’t the smartest move I could have done since I the money I saved I spent in coffees / food / silly buys in the airport while waiting for the next flight. However, I have to say that Munich’s airport is really nice. I think it’s the first airport I’ve been to that offers free Jacobs coffee and also has a sex shop. I haven’t traveled that much outside Europe, so I don’t know how it is in other countries but the existence of a sex shop in the airport I found intriguing…

Anyway, putting the sex shop aside, I’m enjoying my stay here a lot. I’ve already seen some of my old friends. I’ve even been in Lent for three days. (I exclude a nice wurst I had in Munich on Thursday which doesn’t count since travelers are excluded from Lent anyway). I’m not doing it out of religious reasons but out of custom. It’s Easter, I’m in Greece and I thought that some kind of detox will be good for me. It’s even easier since the only food in the house is dairy and meat free. I’m also going to Church tonight to ‘witness’ the resurrection of Christ. Someone has to be there for that job...

After that, it's all Chocolate Bunnies / Huge portions of Roast feasts with friends and family...
(just because I was in detox for three days)

Enjoy the days off, for those of you that have some!

Also, I'd like to wish to Suf a quick recovery! Get well soon my friend! All the best to you...


  1. A sex shop in an airport! Sorry - I'm not ignoring your post about Easter traditions in Greece - I just can't get over the sex shop in an airport. I may have to go to Munich - if they have sex shops in the airport, I can only imaging the kind of shops they have downtown.

    Enjoy your holiday!


  2. They used to have the biggest sex shop I have seen in Frankfurt airport.

    Us Europeans are so laid back! :-)

  3. Καλή ανάσταση. (Ίσως είναι λίγο αργά τώρα.) Θυμάμαι τη πρώτη φορά που είδα σεξ shop σε αεροδρόμιο. Ηταν στην Φραγκφούρτη το 1978, ήμουνα 18 χρονών και είδα για πρώτη φορά φωτογραφίες με γυμνά αγόρια να φιλιούνται, να παίζουνε τους πούτσους τους, να κάνουνε πίπες, κλπ. Μου έκανε μεγάλη εντύπωση... Κατάλαβα ότι δεν ήμουνα μόνος στον κόσμο.

  4. I hope you had a great Easter Nik.
    Mine was hectic (in a good way).
