Scotland 2013

Last week I found myself doing what I like most. Travelling!
Driven by emotions, I took a plane (more like 4), crossed Europe and landed to Glasgow!

As a Grave Digger fan and worshipper of the album "Tunes of War", I learned about William Wallace and his battles before I even watch the Braveheart movie. Therefore I always wanted to visit this glorious land. So here I am, beneath Scotland's gloomy sky. And what a spectacular landscape view?!!

During my trip I was staying in Glasgow's West End, but I also visited Edinburg, Stirling and Alloa.

Lots of beer and food, some new friends, a couple of old friends, pancakes and eggs'n'sausages for breakfast, a Queensryche cancelled show, some non-metal 2nd hand vinyl recordstores.
All in all another adventure not to be forgotten!

Here are some photos:

Touch the Sun

I'm not a huge fan of the summer sun.

Don't get me wrong, I love summers, and as an astronomy enthusiast I also love the sun. What I mean with this statement is that due to my low levels of melanin in my body combined with the summer sun in Cyprus I find myself with serious sunburns if found uncovered under direct sunlight.

So I usually get my swimming in the Cypriot waters during the night, and this way I can have wonderful Sunrises in the morning. The proof, here:

If we could only Touch The Sun, to dream is not enoughthe world is on our hands...
Photo taken by a special friend of mine, who spent the night hearing me blabber about everything
Caption is from Crismon Glory's song "Touch the Sun" taken from their album Astronomica

PS - A friend on Fb said that I'm not holding it right. My answer was
"I'm not holding it. I'm containing it within the centrer of the distance between my palms, using an energy grid. The asymmetry of the glance is caused by instant coronal mass ejections (CME), witch takes place at the spots where sun's magnetic field penetrates it's surface." ~ Yes, I know. I have to get a life soon...



Perseids Meteor Shower 2013

Well, it's been a long time since my last post.
A lot of activity to cover on blog during this summer, lots of stuff and photos to follow.

To start covering the lost time and ground here's a photo I took on August 12th during the Perseids Meteor Shower.

We were in Agios Ioannis in Nicosia/Cyprus during the event, and that was the only partly successful image we managed to take. Enjoy

Happy Ice - Faith in Mankind Restored!

Since the 70s, there was an ubber cult ice cream circulating the depths of the underground in Cyprus.

The nectar of the gods, the mighty amvrosia, was probably consisted 50% of this glorious iced product (other 50% was probably Keanita Juice)

In the mid/late 90s, Regis Company discontinued the production of this glorious orgasmic precious ice cream due to unknown reasons. My guess is that extraterrestrial forces invaded the factory and stole the equipment and the secret recipe.

Now, year 2013, this elixir of life gets in production again!

Oh Gods, the faith in mankind has been restored!



My first one ~ Tons to follow!

The history of Mankind in 2 Minutes

A couple of months ago I watched a TV-Series Documentary called "Mankind: The Story Of All Of Us" from History Channel. Definitely worth every single minute spent!

Check out this 2 minutes video for a fast sum-up of our history:

Rafting through Nestos River

On May 19th 2013, a group of students in Xanthi, including me, were having their first experience in rafting.

We visited Riverland, at Paranesti, gathered instructions and equipment, and with two guides we hit the water!

I have to say, rafting IS AMAZING! An extremely cool sport, full of adrenaline! Can't wait to do this again!

Here are some photos for your eyes (copyrights belong to riverland.gr)







Climbing in Cyprus

Last month, while being in Cyprus, me and my bloodbrother Stelios visited the climbing routes of "Kourtellorotsos" (Κουρτελλόροτσος), located just beneath Saint Nicholas, close to the famous "Rocks of Chasamboulia" (or Hasampoulia - Πέτρες των Χασαμπουλιών)

We were pleased to find a wonderfull climbing field, beyond our expectations!

Nice solid rock, routes with a variety in difficulty scale, and some other cool climbers accompanying our climbs.

We climbed seven routes in that day:
- Elevthero Pnevma (meaning Free Spirit - Ελευθερο Πνεύμα)
-Apiasti Eleutheria (meaning Uncatchable Freedom - Άπιαστη Ελευθερία)
-Oceanis
-Tarantula
-Neraeda (meaning Fairy - Νεράιδα)
-Parthena (meaning Virgin -Παρθένα)
-Horos Siopis (meaning Dance of Silence - Χορός Σιωπής)

We'll definitely hit that field in the near future! Feel free to join us :)
Enjoy some photos of that day:
that's Stelios, preparing the rope

and that would be me, just before ascending :)

put em on and kill em all :p

a nice crack there

my beauty getting ready

We Rock on Rock :)

I'm on my way to find new walks of life

Tall as a mountain... Just Climb!

Go for it bro!

For those about to climb...

DIY Project: "Laptop Cooler"

Summers are always a good time for some "Do it Yourself" Projects. 
I moved from Xanthi's Cool weather to Cyprus' Hot Sun for the summer, and I found my self facing a problem. My laptop's (which I mostly use as a desktop)  temperature was reaching high levels due to low floating air to the desk. 

So I used my "TRUST ME I'M AN ENGINEER" skills to built a handmade cooler. With some wood leftovers from previous projects, some basic electrical equipment, a JigSaw and a Glue Gun the problem was solved: 




Now, what's next?? :D

Traditional Cypriot Wedding - From Proxenia to The Wedding in Aphrodite's Island

Last Month we managed to present properly how a Traditional Cypriot Wedding was held back in 1920s. 

Here's the video, and since everything is in Greek, I'll write an english summary report here.



The story takes us back to the village of K.Zodia, Cyprus, 1920.

Scene 1
One of the school teachers, Michaelis, fell in love with a girl called Martou. In the opening scene, dancing the traditional song "Stamna" the boy attracts the attention of the girl, and this has as a result the breaking of her "kouza/stamna".

The "Proxenia"
Proxenia is the name diven to the act of sending messages via a person regarding marriage proposals back in the day. The Person who delivers the message, "Proxenitra", favors the sender to the receiver in order to make the proxenia successfully and the two end up married.

Scene 2
"Proikosymfona"
The legal document where both parents pairs of husband and wife are signing, where they state what heritage are giving to their children.

Engagement 
once "prokosymfona" are signed, the engagement party begins, and relatives from both families are invited to wife's house.

Scene 3
Marriage Preparations
After the engagement, the preparations for the wedding begin. These include "Wool washing", "The washing and grinding of Resi", "Manassa"

Scene 4
"Preparing the Bed"
A whole ceremony the day before wedding, is held in order to prepare the couples' bed. 

Scene 5
The Wedding Day
The Shaving and dressing of the groom, the primp of the wife, and the party held after with lots of traditional dancing

Scene 6
Second Day Of The Wedding
The traditional couple's dancing, with parents and family hanging money on their clothes, and lots of dancing again.

Hope you'll enjoy it.

Carnival Time, Again... 2013

Last night we were there, with lots of drinks and dances!

Check out our facebook page for lots of photos!

Jizzy Mizzy is my business...

...and business is good!

We have it as a tradition, whenever an exams period comes to an end, to light up the fire, and bring out the meaty beasts!

We met in a communal place in our dormitory and, destroyed everything - from beef liver to pork chops - with the companion of cold beers and wine!

Our companion was constantly growing, and at some point, 4 instruments and a vocal presence, gave a cultural touch on our night's painting! Until late May, may we Rust in Peace...
