Thessaloniki from the sea[EN] Drasi is really located in the middle of nowhere. This is quite difficult to access it with public transport, and the evening life is inexistant. But it has a lot of great advantages as well!

Since the days are becoming longer and warmer, the intenational volunteers living here take more chances to go and explore the surrounding area. By bike or by foot. And it's really nice! There are so many busards and others birds (flamingo, cormorant, pelican,...) around, and the nature is really appreciated. For now I am going at least once a week to make a little tour around, observe the birds, enjoy the sun, looking at Thessaloniki from the other side of the sea... It's rerally refreshing to be in the wilde, specially since I have been living in Brusels my whole life.

[FR] Drasi est vraiment dans un endroit paumé. C'est plutot difficile d'accès avec les transsports publiques, et la vie nocturne est innexistante. Mais il y a quelques avantages également !
Comme les journées deviennent plus longues et plus chaudes, les volontaires internationaux vivants dans le centre de soin on plus de possibilités pour aller explorer les alentours. À vélo ou à pied, on peut facilement rejoindre des zones intéressates. Il y a énormément de rapaces (buses surtout) et d'autres oiseaux aux alentours (flamants roses, cormorants, pélicans,...), et être au milieu de la nature est très apprécié. Pour l'instant, j'essaye d'aller me promener au moins une fois par semaine. J'observe les oiseaux, je profite du soleil, et j'admire Thessaloniki depuis l'autre coté de la mer... C'est vraiment rafraichissant d'être dans la nature quand, comme moi, on a grandit dans une ville toute sa vie.

We are along the cross street intersecting the side road of the Thessaloniki-Athens highway, at the 9th km, just before the Mercedes car dealership. Following this cross street, you can find us 1km ahead, towards the sea, just after the ZAK shoe factory.
