Μετά από επιτυχημένες ξεναγήσεις στο Μουσείο της Ακρόπολης στα Αγγλικά, Γερμανικά, Γαλλικά, και Ελληνικά για μεγάλους και
εφήβους, μας ζήτησαν να οργανώσουμε μία ξενάγηση για παιδάκια… και επειδή εμείς χατήρι δεν χαλάμε, είμαστε έτοιμοι.
Λοιπόν την Κυριακή 9/1/11, σας περιμένουμε 11.45 μέσα στην είσοδο του Μουσείου. Η ξενάγηση θα είναι σχεδιασμένη ειδικά για παιδάκια από 6 – 8 με 9 χρόνων, θα διαρκέσει 1 με 1,5 ώρα και θα είναι στα Ελληνικά.
Τα παιδιά μέχρι 18 ετών δεν πληρώνουν εισιτήριο εισόδου στο Μουσείο.
After the successful Acropolis Museum guided tours we have organized for teenagers, foreigners, in French, in German, in English, in Greek, we are now organizing a guided tour for little ones (6 – 8 or 9 year-olds) in Greek!
The tour will last 1-1.5 hours, because it has been planned especially for kids and we don’t want to exhaust them.
It will take place on Sunday, 9th January and the appointment is at 11.45 at the entrance.
The weather has finally become more “christmasy” and we can hope for a more suitable to the season atmosphere.
Of course, this year Christmas will be somehow hectic and” tight”, given all the recent developments in the country, but we must try to keep our spirits high and return to habits and practices that we might have neglected the last years. One of them is our home and the company of our close friends and family. In the past we used to focus on going out on holidays, eating out with friends, living OUT in general. Now, with the finacial difficulties we are all encountering, this has got to change, but…you know what? It’s not necessarily bad-or should I say, it’s a lot better! This is our chance to “hug” our own people again, to spend more quality time with them, to listen to them, visit them or have them visit us, cook together and eat simple and delicious food seated around large tables-or even squeezed around small tables.This is what we all grew up with, this is what our parents used to do, these are our memories-people gathered around tables! Getting together is back! Let’s all enjoy it and let us not nag and complain about the things we can’t afford anymore. We can gain our integrity and our “soul mates” back-think how important this is!
So, we wish you all, Greek and foreign, crisis-affected and non-affected,
a very happy holiday, a better New Year and health and happiness to all of you.
We will continue to inform you on a daily basis about everything going on in Athens these days.
We are working on lots of activities and events in the new year, after the turmoil of the feasts and bazaars and trips and…and….
One of them is a visit to the theatre (!), a Greek mythology group in English, (you know we already have one in French, don’t you?), Greek dance classes, visits to sites and museums, familiarisation with flavours from all over Greece, and a lot more–surprises as well!
So brace up for all that-we guarantee you will love them.
We used to tell our children stories when they were little, but at the age of 16 and 19 they are the ones that tell us stories (usually HORROR ones).To cover our need for story- telling, we have chosen our foreign friends who seem to appreciate them greatly. Except for adults, children seem to be keen on Greek Mythology and the Greek culture in general; therefore we have decided to organize a group for children at a similar age. The children should have an interest in Greek culture because, when we meet, we will tell stories, learn Greek traditional songs, and draw.
Daidalos and Ikaros
Knowledge of Greek is not a must, since the languages spoken will be French or English.
We suggest the first group to have 10 little ones aged 6-11. We think that the number guarantees their full participation without creating chaos.The program will be adapted to the interests of each age group.We have very ambitious plans for the contents of the groups that stretch from story- telling to dancing, singing, outings, drawing,Greek cooking, etc. Let’s all work to make our dream come true! More groups will follow of different ages.
Yesterday, 14 of Livin’Lovin’ friends and our guide went to Parnitha !
It was our first walk in nature with Livin’ Lovin’ friends and we liked it so much, and we had such a good time, that it was only the first one of a series of walks and trekking.
In the future various level groups will be formed so check our site constantly.
The few clouds in the morning worried us at first, but up in the mountain the weather was beautiful, the atmosphere was clear,so clear, that you could see the Marathon lake and even Evia. The first part of the walk lasted 1hour and 45 min. through black pines and fir trees.
We reached the shelter, where we had tea, spaghetti, spinach pie, cakes and tsipouro (as you can imagine the second part was a lot easier!).
After the break, it took us another 20 min. to get to the cars.
Our guide was very efficient but also very thoughtful. He cared about everyone, and he wanted to make sure that everyone was having a good time. We loved him !
