2015 Highlights – Happy New Year!

by ElenaSergeeva

Wow another year is coming to an end, and I always feel that it is a great opportunity to reflect and to set new goals for the New Year. Thinking of my 2015 Highlights, I feel happy about all the events that took place in 2015, and I must say it has been one of the best years yet. It doesn’t mean that every day is a bed of roses, but what I have learned in my journey so far is that by working hard and sticking to your goals will bring you to where you want to be. Stay focused is my new motto. Here is a rundown to some of the greatest accomplishments in 2015:

On January 2015, one of the most important projects hit off, Travel Bloggers Greece was launched. The event took place at Grecotel Pallas Athena, followed by a limo ride to the Acropolis with Sattas Group.


Beautiful Tallinn

I then boarded my first flight of the year and travelled to Tallinn, Estonia for business. This was my first visit to Estonia.


Exploring Vilnius

Then came a trip to Vilnius, Lithuania and Riga, Latvia where I was visiting for the first time.

In the beginning of September my Cretan adventures were over and I returned to Athens. The highlight of the year was travelling to Bangkok, Thailand in October to attend the first TBEX Asia conference. I then spent four days in Koh Samui! This was one of the best trips of my life.
