|Self-shot attempt at the White Tower|
As I told you in my previous post, the past weekend I took a small trip with a couple of friends from Uni to Thessaloniki. We had a pretty amazing time, and it was all we needed after a semester full of work and study!
The trip from Athens to Thessaloniki with the bus is a lot of hours, so we had a couple of stops on our way.
The first one was on Kammena Vourla (which could be translated as 'Burned Rushes'),
where we had some coffee and took a few photos.

I had some movies on my iPhone, so me and Christina decided to watch Argo.
We only watched half of it, because we could hear almost nothing (we had no subs!)
due to the loud music on the bus and others speaking.
After 8 hours of travelling, we were finally in our hotel room, which was centrally located to our luck.
We had a quick freshen up and headed out for dinner.
Visiting 'Ladadika' when in Thessaloniki is a must! So that's where we headed.
Ladadika is a region that is full of various taverns and local treats.
We found one that seemed good enough, and we weren't disappointed.
For starters, me and Kateraina had ouzo while the other two had white wine.
I like my ouzo with fizzy orange juice, which I find to be perfect!!
The menu of the tavern was like a newspaper which I found really interesting.
They also brought us some hot crispy bread till our main courses arrived.
We decided to order various plates and share them between us.
Those included cheese croquettes, a plate of various meat, filled mushrooms and potatoes with yogurt.
The mushrooms were the best, filled with philadelphia cheese and parmesan. Yum!
Those kind of taverns, always bring some kind of sweet treat when you ask for the bill.
This time, we had 'revani', which is a syrup based baked dessert, with ice-cream.
After we filled our tummies, we decided to explore the town a little bit, so we headed to
the White Tower which is a famous landmark in Thessaloniki.
On our way there, we were singing 'Thessaloniki themed' songs, so everyone who may have thought of us as local people, became certain we weren't!! *Tourist Alert*
We headed to our hotel quite early, because we had to wake up early next morningto attend a workshop of our Uni, so we skipped on having a drink.
More from my Thessaloniki trip coming up, on my next 2 posts.
Hope you all have an amazing time.
