(Please scroll down if you just want to find out some places of interest in Victoria) ‘You can’t live there!’ For many Greek people, Victoria is one of the dodgiest areas in Athens. My husband and I have gone through a lot of mixed feeling for this area from the moment we moved in just […]

The Mountain Men of Mount Parnassos Part 2

When we arrived Aegli Hotel, it wasn’t the beautiful black and white tiles nor the elegant marble table that caught my attention, but the rows and rows of trophies.

Finally I had my first Gong Bath experience! Since my singing bowl lesson I’ve been fascinated with sound healing. While in London I noticed Gong Bath events popping up on my facebook feed and I had been wanting to experience it, but then all the traveling and the move to Greece got in the way […]

Part 1 – Arachova, Distomo, Delphi and Antikyra in Spring My husband said most people who came to Greece for holidays, they often would visit the acropolis in Athens and then onto one or two islands but what they didn’t know was that mainland Greece had a lot to offer too. I was very lucky […]

It’s been freezing cold in Athens and as I was reminiscing the glorious weather in the summer months, I remember the encounter with this villa owner, his wife and their dog. This is an example how a family can benefit change together, as we affect and are affected by the ones closest to us the […]
