It is when I stay far from the city for a day or two that I realize how much I miss living in the countryside. As I have mentioned before, I live in a ground floor, downtown apartment with no terrace or balconies whatsoever, thus the first sounds I hear when I wake up are, in best occasions, the cars passing by (I don't even want to start about what I see when I wake up- and that is definitely not the bright, Cretan sun). Hopefully, in the near future I will be able to spend more time outdoors and visit the city just when needed (or desired). Thankfully, the internet nowadays can fill up many of the necessities not to be found out of the city once (thank god for etsy!) and bring some of its qualities back to the nature (music, movies, news and networking to mention some). I most certainly love this mix&match and definitely looking forward to it!
