My name is Angelina Helioti and I recently graduated from the architecture school of NTUA.


After months of thinking, I took the risk of leaving life in Athens. The reason, the very quality of life of the metropolis. The fast pace, the pressure to “meet the deadlines”, the crowd of people and the lack of natural environment were things that led me to change.


I moved to a small, mountainous village in Arcadia, Stemnitsa. Although I grew up in Laconia, Arcadia is my place of origin and so in a sense, I feel like I have come home. I don’t know how long I’ll be able to stay here, but whatever it ends up being, I’ll try to enjoy it to the fullest.


Here I am enjoying everything I have been craving! Trees, rivers, lakes, quiet, everyday life at a slow pace.

I have a simple lifestyle, but it gives me inspiration for my artistic pursuits, photography, painting, and video making. At the same time, I am studying the art of silversmithing in a public school located here. In this blog you will find journal articles about my life here.


I hope you enjoy everything I’m about to share with you.

Winter is here

Hello my friends!


Now a wave of bad weather has come. It rains most of the days. The temperature has dropped below ten degrees and will probably flirt with the negative digits during the week. This time of the year is starting when it’s best not to leave anything on the balcony, because the wind will take it and I’ll be looking for it or it will end up on a neighbor’s head.

The fogs are non-stop and some mornings I wake up to a yellow-white diffused light. Most of the time though, it’s this lovely hazy blue. I remember it from last November when I took the photo below.

Indie/Pop/Folk now on the speakers. And a gloomy mood, but not sad. Just a bit of a dreamer.

On Monday evening, a large crowd gathered at the “The Senate” cafe. The reason for this was the call I made to my fellow students to present to them an idea of mine, regarding how we can act like the youth of Stemnitsa, as a sign of protest against the wind turbines. Most people embraced the idea and we have already started to implement it!! Along the way, other attendees spoke about how we can act as a community to prevent this disaster in the natural environment of the place.

Like in the old days when the councils of the chieftains were held here. History repeats itself… Unfortunately or fortunately.

Such a meeting could not be without dancing and singing.

I will tell you more about this topic in the next article. Until then, have fun!
