A blog written in Greece, about Greece:
So after a long absence, I return here … to what makes me happy. In my never-ending search for happiness, in this country of, what seems to be, never-ending sadness, I have found that reading helps me a lot. As a child books were my life, and I would lose myself in my thought provoking, imagination intensifying library, trying to find the meaning of my life. In spite of this, though, I still feel a big empty space somewhere. It is a void which I find especially hard to fill here in Greece. As a child I would spend hours in the public library, searching for newer, more exciting adventures. In a small Welsh town, being a foreigner also meant being different. Those of you who are Greek, or who have seen “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”, will know exactly what I mean. The movie was no great exaggeration, believe me.
What I did not know at the time, was how special it is to be me. I had the fortune of living a double life. I had two completely different cultures invading my life every day, two languages battling their way through my brain, two ways of life… and I survived. More here
