Taxidiaris, the travel lover - Ταξιδιάρης

"The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page"
"Ο κόσμος είναι ένα βιβλίο και εκείνοι που δεν ταξιδεύουν, διαβάζουν μόνο μια σελίδα"

As I was surfing in the internet, I found this lovely bilingual (Greek and English) written travel blog. At the same time I learned a new Greek word:Taxidiarismeans a person who loves traveling.
Καθώς έψαχνα στο διαδίκτυο, βρήκα αυτό το υπέροχο δίγλωσσο, ταξιδιωτικό μπλογκ, που είναι γραμμένο στα ελληνικά και στα αγγλικά. Ταυτόχρονα, έμαθα μια νέα λέξη από τα ελληνικά: Ταξιδιάρης: που σημαίνει το άτομο που αγαπά τα ταξίδια.
Lots of lovely, moody images from Greece and elsewhere in the world and a sidebar full of beautiful ideas for traveling. In addition, as we are Greek students we see fit to test the language skills. :) I recommend it, to click here! 
Πολλές όμορφες, ευχάριστες εικόνες από την Ελλάδα και άλλα μέρη του κόσμου και η πλαϊνή μπάρα γεμάτη όμορφες ιδέες για ταξίδια. Επιπλέον, ως Έλληνες μαθητές είναι μια ευκαιρία για δοκιμή των γλωσσικών δεξιοτήτων. :) Συστήσω, να κάνετε κλικ εδώ!
I’m Ioanna, a 23-year old journalism student living in Helsinki, but might want to live in Greece - or anywhere else.

Interesting word for "travel lover". The word fits you, too, Phivos.

Ionna seems to have fallen in love with Greece. How could she not? The people, the climate, the food!

The Swedish government was responsible for the most iron ore the Nazis received. Kiruna-Gällivare ore fields in Northern Sweden were all important to Nazi Germany.

These massive deliveries of iron ore and military facilities from Sweden to Nazi Germany lengthened World War II. Casualties of the war have been estimated at 20 million killed in Europe. How many of them died due to Sweden's material support to Nazi Germany, is not known.


The Swedish drinking toast (skal) has a rather macabre background; it originally meant 'skull'. The word has come down from a custom practiced by the warlike and terrorist Vikings who used the dried-out skulls of their enemies as drinking mugs, with the evident advantage that the mug held a large quantity of mead and could be easily replaced.

The Viking raids are remembered: Spanish-speaking mothers warn their children that if they do not behave, the Norwegian (el noruego) will carry them off.

In Lohja and Espoo near Helsinki they fenced off the school building with barbed wire, in order to ban children the access to a school.

Sweden was silently pursuing principles of racial purity. During 41 years some 60,000 people were sterilized as misfits.
