8 days and 7 nights in Greece!


For those who're senior majoring in Sc. economics and social, a seminar were organized for us in Greece.
Tbh, I was reluctant to go, first real trip overseas and having roommates when I know that I'm a clean freak about my things ..

We departed at 7 am, so by 5am everyone was already at the airport.


(bought some Godiva choco because someone told me they're delicious. I think they're ok, more delicious than the common ones but nothing.. really delicious)



We stayed 3 nights at Minoa Hotel, in Tolo, which was very clean, serving nice food. The place is very calm, there's no much people in the area and you can sun tan or swim.
By walk, there's some ice cream parlor and some small stores which are still opened late in the night.


  We just sit there and revised, sometimes on the terrace and I guess the others were really pleased because they could smoke while listening to the teacher and some even lay down if we're revising on the beach. haha


For 3 bucks, have a medium cone. I took stracciatella and mint with choco chips. Delicious but way too big and mint was too much refleshing, haha.


And night time, sneak out to try the banana flavor ice cream in small cone. Yummy~
I didn't eat ice cream for days after it because I was so sick of it. lmao



And then after it we changed hotel and city everyday so I don't really remember where was where..
So ramdom pictures, here you go!












And a splendid sunset just behind us while we were having a lesson on the beach. At Aegina


The same night because the teachers gave us some free time, we went doing a bonfire on the beach.
And it went wrong at the end because fire didn't last, people was too lazy to go find things to burn etc.. 
But at the beginning it was quite fun, a friend have a video of most of the thing, I did film half of the thing because she had to go get things and I wasn't watching what I was filming so.. I filmed.. butts and legs..

So .. don't be surprised if you see your butt for nearly 2mins. lol












Beside the beautiful landscapes, bonding times, petty fights .. We can't forget fooooood~~~
(Vegetarian) Food porn time...












 My favorites ... 
Cheesy pasta.. So yummy!!

And last meal at the hotel.. cheesy omelet.. and it was freaking giant.



And last ice cream in Greece, Hazelnut and Pistachio. 



Positive things:

- The air was way more pure than in Paris, so I did not have asthma attack.
- Even if I woke up really earlier and didn't sleep more than 5h/day, I was still quite energetic
- It was a really nice occasion to bond with some of my classmates, on the way of making new friends, haha.
That was really the most important thing for me, I discovered that some of my classmates are really nice guy and actually are more approachable than what I think. 
- The weather was really nice



Negative things:

- The toilets.. You can't flush your used paper. YEURK!
- I had a stomachache everyday because of their food and even now it's arching...
- Girls are really annoying, including my friends.. Drama queen.
- The rocks were freaking slippy and I did fell once.


For the first time of my life I ate so much! I don't have desserts or starters at home and I was really surprised how much they were serving! But I did lose +1kg because of... stomach problems.. 
I was really annoyed to death by some people, especially the girls including my friends.. They complain once, twice, for 10min then for 1h etc.. You just have to go down stairs to eat BUT I must wait for them. 
Wherever I was going, I had to stick with them and we did not always wanted to go to the same place...
And at the end it was the last straw for me so I did the last 3 days alone in a corner and sometimes talk a little to the guys because they were more easy going and wasn't annoying.


Conclusion: 
Bonding was nice, I really hated Greece's toilet and I reallly really hate girls.
I did really appreciate the cheesy omelet, best meal ever.
I did also appreciate the night club even if I was the only one who were sober and didn't have much fun compared to the others.
End of my story.
