A breathtaking experience to the holy monasteries of Meteora

This place is definitely one of the most impressive places I have been so far in my life. The monasteries of Meteora thank their uniqueness to the combination of religion, culture, architecture and nature. In my opinion this combination results in a breath-taking, blissful and peaceful atmosphere in a way I have not experienced anywhere…

Why you shouldn’t skip Naxos on your trip through the Cyclades

As soon as I stepped food on the port of Naxos I knew something beautiful was waiting for me here. The coastline of the city made me think of Aegina, as it is filled with tavernas with taste of venetian architecture. Although I love these coastlines where you can celebrate live with good food, drinks…

Get inspired on the artistic island of Hydra

If you follow me on Instagram, you have probably see me visiting Hydra a few times over the last few weeks. Hydra is one of my favourite destinations close to Athens.

Although there was a time (during my study) that I could sleep for hours in the morning, except for that I have always been…

Romantic getaway to an active volcano: Santorini!

As Valentine is coming up, I decided to write about the most gorgeous and romantic place I have been so far (jup, even more romantic than Paris if you ask me): Santorini! One of my Greek colleagues told me once about this Greek saying: Once you have been to Santorini with your partner, you either…

Why you should definitely visit Thessaloniki!

May not as well-known as the capital city of Greece, but Thessaloniki is absolutely worth a visit. Thessaloniki shows a lot of similarity with Athens. It has old Roman sites, waiting to be discovered, Greek Orthodox Church, mostly built in Byzantine style, on every corner of the street and an adorable boulevard that’s just perfect…

The Best of 2017

2017 was such a great year with so many memorable moments. Ben and I decided to make as many trips as possible. Sometimes this meant leaving on Friday right after work and flying back on Monday morning going almost straight to work. Although I am the kind of person that really needs 8 hours of…

I guess everyone is familiar with Athens crown jewel, the Acropolis. The Parthenon standing proudly on top the Acropolis, dominating the enormous city. Greece has an amazing history, with Athens as one of its main centers. That’s why this city has so much more to offer than only the Acropolis. Inhabited for at least 3000…
