[:en]Today I leave for Barcelona and onto Lloret de Mar in Spain for the yearly TBEX Travel Blogging Conference. I will be speaking on using Pinterest, so excited about that! Last TBEX was in October in Athens, Greece. I was just browsing my photos and realized that I still haven’t shared any of my experience from back then! Oh My! Time flies indeed.

 

One of the things that I liked most about Athens was the creative vibe I got from it, especially because I was surrounded by the most amazing street art all the time.

 

During my stay in Athens, I was walking through the streets snapping photos of all the art, when I ran into my friend Anne from yourlittleblackbook.me. She was taking part in the Street Art Tour organised by Dopios, a great initiative where locals share their knowledge and passion for a city with visitors.

Her tour had started a while ago, but tour leader Manolis kindly let me into the group and I finished my walk, but now with expert advice, how cool is that? Manolis is a street artist himself and he knows pretty much everything about the local artists. We even ran into one and had a little chat!

 

I can recommend taking Manolis’ tour. It’s 31 Euro and takes about 3,5 hours. Kids under 12 go free! Find out more on their website: dopios.com

Manolis talking enthusiastically

 

Because I snapped so many photos, It would take you a week or so to load this page, so I split them in two and will post the second half in a next blog post. Are you ready for Part 1? Here we go:

Nienke[:nl]Vandaag vertrek ik naar Barcelona en ga daarna gelijk door naar Lloret de Mar in Spanje voor de jaarlijkse TBEX Reisbloggers Conferentie. Ik zal er spreken over het gebruik van Pinterest, echt super veel zin in! De Vorige TBEX was in oktober in Athene, Griekenland. Ik zat toevallig net door mijn foto’s te bladeren en realiseerde me ineens dat ik die nog steeds niet gedeeld heb op de blog. Oh My! Time flies als een malle.

 

Een van de dingen die ik het leukst aan Athene vond was de creatieve vibe die er vanaf sloeg. Vooral vanwege de street art, die echt overal in de stad te vinden is en waar echt geweldige werken tussen zitten.

 

Een van de dagen in Athene liep ik door de straten in het wilde weg foto’s van street art te maken, toen ik mijn vriendin Anne van yourlittleblackbook.me tegenkwam. Ze nam deel aan de Street Art Tour die door Dopios georganiseerd werd, een geweldig initiatief waar de locals hun kennis en passie van de stad delen met bezoekers.

Anne schiet wat mooie plaatjes

 

Haar tour was al een tijdje bezig, maar de tourleider Manolis liet me heel vriendelijk toch bij de groep en dus eindigde ik mijn ochtendwandeling met expert advies, hoe tof is dat? Manolis is zelf ook kunstenaar en weet bijna alles over de lokale artiesten. We kwamen er zelfs eentje tegen en maakten even een praatje over zijn werk!

 

Ik kan je echt aanraden op tour met Manolis te gaan. Het is 31 Euro en duurt ongeveer 3,5 uur. Kinderen onder de 12 zijn gratis! Voor meer info kijk je op hun site: dopios.com

Manolis enthousiast aan het woord

 

Omdat ik zo ongelooflijk veel foto’s maakte (bijna 100!), zou het je een week duren deze pagina te laden, dus heb ik ze maar in tweeën verdeeld en zal ik de volgende helft in en nieuwe blog plaatsen. Ben je klaar voor deel 1? Ga lekker zitten, want hier komen ze:
