Athens – Travel Diary – Pente

 Whilst I sit here working from home on a Saturday, I feel extremely nostalgic looking at these photos. nos·tal·gia [no-stal-juh] noun 1. a wistful desire to return in thought or in fact to a former time in one’s life, to one’s home or homeland, or to one’s family and friends; a sentimental yearning for the happiness of a former place or time: a nostalgia for his college days. 2. something that elicits or displays nostalgia. I was in Athens just five months ago, but it feels like an age ago. It has been a whirlwind beginning to 2014, but I can’t complain, life in the fast lane is a […]

Athens – Travel Diary – Tessera

 This here is my favourite blog post from the Athens collection. Each of the photos depict the things I love about the city. Although grimy and dirty in areas (especially since the economic crisis), the capital city still has its own personality and uniqueness. We spent a lot of our days walking around Monistiraki, Thiseio , Plaka, […]

Sardelles – Gazi, Athens

 Good morning on this chilly Saturday. Wow winter surely feels to be with us today, 16 degrees! Summer please come back. To get everyone excited about their weekend eating, I thought I should share some Greek food love with Sardelles (Greek word for Sardine), a restaurant/take away bar in the Gazi district of Athens. Greek […]

Athens – Travel Diary – Tria

Kalispera! It’s time to roll out these remaining European posts. This is my third photo diary from Athens and explores two of the main tourist attractions in the city; Lycabettus Hill and the Temple of Olympian Zeus. The majority of sites in Athens are within walking distance, which makes it easy to get around during […]

Tzitzikas kai Mermigas – Athens

Where to eat in Athens? The city is full of restaurants offering all of the best dishes in Greek cuisine. Me being the planning freak that I am, tried reading every possible article and blog post that reviewed some of the current favourites. Tzitzikas and Mermigas was one of those places. Located just near Syntagma […]

Athens – Travel Diary – Duo

Following on from a post that I did a few weeks ago now (which you can have a look at here), today I share a collection of photos from our second stint in Athens over the New Year. Athens city is a walkable city for many of the main attractions, but if you want to explore […]

Patra – Travel Diary – Duo

Kalispera & happy Wednesday/hump day. The winter memories of Christmas in Europe really shine through in this post as we were in Patra for the days leading up to and after Christmas day. The centre of the city comes to life with Plateia Vasileos Georgiou (central square) lit up with christmas lights and larger then […]

Nafpakto – Travel Diary

Looking at these photos and writing this post makes me so happy. Greece is gorgeous! On a sunny winters day we drove to Nafpaktos, situated less then an hour away from Patra. We spent the afternoon walking around the small town, which was extremely quiet whilst everyone had their mid-afternoon siestas. The only place open […]

Achaia Clauss – Patras

Kalimera! It hit me this morning that summertime is nearly over for another season, the thought instantly made my Thursday morning that little bit worse. I guess we cant complain though, we have been pretty lucky with the weather these past few weeks, and I even managed to get a tan after five weeks of […]

Loutraki – Travel Diary

Give me a year to travel around Greece and explore all of its cities, islands, mountains, villages and beaches and I will eternally be in your debt. All countries are beautiful in their own way and with Greece being my home, I have a very special place for it in my heart. Driving from Athens […]

Athens – Travel Diary – Ena

It makes me so happy to be sharing my Greece photos with you all now. I have posted quite a bit on Greece from 2012, but I never had enough photos from that trip to cover Athens and Patras properly. I made sure that my camera was out constantly on my last trip, and I […]
