Acropolis, Athens, Greece PinayFlyingHigh.com
Ok, so the title is a bit misleading because the tips that I’m going to give you here will not grant you a VIP access to the Acropolis in Athens. However, I feel like it’s important for me to share these tips to the world because I sure wished I was aware of these before going to Athens. So for my own reference in case I get to visit Acropolis again, I’m jotting this down and sharing it to you as

Thessaloniki City Guide

White Tower, Thessaloniki, Greece - PinayFlyingHigh.com
Thessaloniki, the second largest city of Greece. Popular to the younger crowd for its hip and vibrant dining and nightlife scene. A city rich of history and culture, you’ll never run out of things to do here. I go to Thessaloniki almost every year as this is The Greek Mister’s hometown. I’ve personally tried all of the establishments mentioned on this post as a paying customer (unless otherwise st

Thessaloniki, Greece | Ladadika, Where The Old Merges With The New.

July 17, 2016
Ladadika, Thessaloniki, Greece - PinayFlyingHigh.com
The historical district of Ladadika is my favorite area in Thessaloniki. Here you will get a taste of the city’s vibrant dining and nightlife scene with the preserved buildings and cobblestone streets around you. It is where the old merges with the new in Thessaloniki. When my Aunts came for a visit in Thessaloniki, I was having a hard time deciding which hotel to book their stay in. June is a peak season so

Chalkidiki, Greece - PinayFlyingHigh.com
If you ask anyone from Thessaloniki where is the best beach in the world, they will all answer (without thinking twice and probably in unison) Chalkidiki. They talk about it like it’s some sort of a paradise unknown to man and you’re not really living life if you haven’t been there yet. Speaking as an islander who grew up in a country with 7,000 islands, I think it’s pretty (but not as prett

Thessaloniki, Greece | So The White Tower, How Come It’s Not White?

July 15, 2016
White Tower, Thessaloniki, Greece - PinayFlyingHigh.com
The White Tower in Thessaloniki is the city’s most recognizable and most popular emblem. As you drive through Nea Paralia towards the the downtown area of Thessaloniki, its commanding presence is quite hard to miss. Surrounded by modern buildings, it’s the last standing infrastructure in this area which will remind you of the rich history of the city that you’re in. So how come it’s called

Thessaloniki, Greece | Rotunda of Galerius: A Mausoleum, A Church and A Mosque

July 14, 2016
If not for my friend N who was joining our Greece holiday from Doha for 5 days, I wouldn’t be able to do anything touristic in Thessaloniki. The Greek Mister hates being a tourist in his own city but that resulted to him not really knowing anything about his own city. Lol. Like the Rotunda of Galerius for example, he didn’t know what it was even if its commanding presence was very hard to miss. I had to
