The region was called Western Macedonia and I stayed in a medium-sized town called Kozani, the capital of Kozani province. I prepared my diploma thesis at the Electrical Engineering Department of the Technological Educational Institute of Western Macedonia.
I made quite a few visits to the surrounding cities, villages, provinces and natural beauties, as you can read at the beginning of this blog.
In the end, I must say it has been a great experience. I learned a lot during these months, both professinally and socially. I met some extremely welcoming, wholehearted and ever-happy people and I explored some of my boundaries. My social experience was faded somewhat by my study engagements, but on professional plane, I think I would not have studied or read even a tiny portion of what I have had.
Towards the end, I made these two impressive trips to two of the Ionian islands (Corfu and Zakynthos), which was completely different than Macedonia or the Olympic Aegean shore or Halkidiki, which I have visited before. For a person who appreciates and it is amazed by the beauties and unique wonders of Nature, like I am, it is an invigorating experience.
Greece, as a country was great. Its landscape its just unbelivable, too bad most of its settlements resemble Romania so much...
