I'd been wanting to go to Kyiv for quite some time, spending time with a Ukrainian friend, seeing Kami's travels there and, of course, the fact that my paternal grandfather is Ukrainian. Then my favourite band announced a show there, and I couldn't refuse the opportunity.

It was time for The Boyfriend and I to go on our anniversary holiday, last year it was Pilio, this year we opted for our favourite destination - Zagorohoria, with a few stops along the way.

I could write a long rambling entry about what life is like in London these days, but honestly, it's been a blur of job interviews, catching up with friends, going to gigs, running around Trafalgar Square in the snow, eating sticky toffee pudding and lots of sushi and wondering what the hell is coming up next.

Playing tourist: I spent my free time walking around the city, enjoying the museums, galleries and reacquainting myself with the city I once called home.

Gigs: Wild Flag, The Sounds and Blouse (sadly I didn't take any shots of Nada Surf).

There is no such thing in my life as Too Much Snow, so I'd been keeping a keen eye on the weather and snow was foreast in northern Athens over the last few days, so while my suburb is sadly snow-free, the nearby mountains are a beautiful frosty white. On Monday my lovely boyfriend took me on a drive to Parnitha where I squeed, faffed and generally bounced around in the snow. Of course, I also took dozens of photographs, here are a few of my favourites...

My boyfriend is awesome. A fair amount of snow fell on Pendeli last night and earlier today, so The Boyfriend took me to play in the white stuff for a couple of hours this afternoon.

More snows! )

Sunday there was snow forecast. As I walked to the bus the day before, I'd squeed at the snow covering Pendeli. I was keeping my fingers crossed for some frolicking in the snow. After The Boyfriend and I had procured a tasty brunch, we headed up to the mountain. Okay, it wasn't Snow With BollocksTM, but it was enough snow to make me squee. It was bloody well freezing and windy to boot, but it was lots of fun. We drove around the mountain for a few hours, getting stuck in a knee-deep trough of mud, getting lost and getting beautiful views.
