The hike from Fira to Oia village

All in all, Greece is God’s own land which grows on you and rejuvenates the soul. As a traveller, I found discovering the inner beauty of Santorini in Greece, a promising experience and I hope you feel the same!

Early spring destination choice

Leaving in middle of Europe during the winter period might be quite exhausting. In the same time, your energy devastates each day with lack of sun or short days or boring rains and all of these winter and early spring spices. When you are at the end of your energy scale, you need to take one more deep breath before you face real summer in your own country. And there is a place for one deep breath: Athens in Greece, the best early spring ancient experience which will recover your energy as quickly as much, which will bring your smile back, updating your ten color and satisfying all your senses.

5 essential Wedge experiences

Wedge started as a cray fisherman community, and there are a few permanent residents who call this their home year round. For most, it’s a weekend getaway, with those who have shacks visiting as often as they can and the beautiful stretch of coast attracting plenty of day trippers also. There are no shops, no mains electricity and no running water. And so yes, I survived my childhood without a screen of some kind for days or even weeks at a time. Days in my youth were spent exploring- bare foot, messy haired and slightly pink from the sun, and of course, learning. From the first time I drove a car, sitting on my dads lap, to successfully building a fire for marshmallow toasting and starting a generator- all skills that the outdoor lifestyle of Wedge forced upon me along with a sense of adventure. The Wedge community itself is a resilient one, the shack owners do not own any land as such and so over the years there has been many a ‘Save Wedge’ campaign, as investors want to grab hold of it or environmentalists oppose the access of the area. The community has banded together, and as yet no threats have persued. When people have a place they feel a connection to, their flame to fight is strong. The Wedge lifestyle, its beaches, its authenticy, is something worth fighting for. 5 essential Wedge experiences First off the rank would have to be, go to the beach. You literally cannot NOT go to the beach. It’s the main attraction, all tracks lead to it and everything about the lifestyle is based around it. On a perfect, hot summers day the crystal clear blue water could not be more inviting, whether it’s simply to cool off, to go surfing, snorkelling (though you may be chased by the couple of resident seals that hang around the island!), kitesurfing…. Park your car down there and enjoy the serenity. Bake in the sun (and bake you will, the white sand means the suns rays are reflective and if you paid any attention in Geography class you would know that the south west of Western Australia is in the direct line of the hole in the ozone layer. Take sunscreen.), go for a walk, build sandcastles, or play a game of beach cricket. If you like to throw in a line, do so. Wedge is known as a great fishing spot, from both the shore and for a day at sea. Please however respect the local fisheries laws and adhere to the Marine Park regulations as some areas are protected. My dad would always joke that he could hear the fish laughing at him from the other side of the invisible sanctuary line, but nonetheless it’s a no go zone. Marine life is abundant and we must all respect the laws in place to keep it that way. Head to the sand dunes south of the shack settlement and get high… into the sky. If you’re game and your car is equipped to do so, drive to the top. If you’re even gamer, and are prepared for sore muscles, walk/climb. Admire the view. Get out the body boards/sand boards and try to slide down. Be careful however, particularly when driving, the sand can fall away and you find yourself bogged very quickly and this is not fun. Don’t attempt to drive if you are inexperienced with 4WD. Pro tip: take your goggles. Yes, your snorkelling or swimming goggles. There is a 90 percent chance it will be windy. And there is sand. Lots of it. Trust me on this one. Take a walk inland and wander the bush tracks observing or photographing interesting sights. If you get lost, just head west, you’ll end up back on the beach and can work your way back. From the quirkiness of the shacks to the local shop (which works on a donation system and only sells bagged ice), and the town medical centre (first aid shack), the local sports oval (helicopter landing spot) and telecommunication point (good old fashioned noticeboard). Watch the sunset over the water over the Indian Ocean- Western Australia is not called the ‘Sunset Coast’ for no reason! I have seen many a beautiful sunset across the globe. From the beautiful descent over the Temples of Angkor in Cambodia, to the famed Mediterranean sunset that hundreds flock to the small town of Oia on Santorini, Greece just to get a glimpse of. I can say with most certainty, on a clear day there is nothing more spectacular than a Wedge sunset over the water with the silhouette of a couple of crayfish boats. Grab your mates, grab some bevvies (that’s aussie for ‘beverage’) and park yourself to watch out for the ‘green flash’. It’s a thing, believe me. If you’re after the true local experience, join the procession of cars that converge at ‘the point’ at dusk. Stories are shared, praises of happiness heard and you’ll probably find yourself with a few new mates to wave at as you pass on the beach the next day. Finally, do nothing– this is the best part of Wedge. Here is a place where your emails can’t come through, you can finally find time to read that book or play a game of scrabble, and a siesta is an essential to escape the midday sun. Go ahead, enjoy it. Reality can wait a few hours (or days…). Getting there Although Wedge is best enjoyed over a few days, staying there is actually a little difficult. Though not strictly enforced, camping is not allowed due to environmental reasons and there is no accommodation at the settlement itself.  However, Lancelin and Cervantes, half an hour drive north and south respectively both have a range of accommodation from caravan parks to hotels. If you were after the outdoorsy camping experience, there are campsites around surrounding areas.

Queen Elizabeth and her birthday party in Athens

Just a few days after the official celebrations for the Queen’s birthday in London the British Ambassador hosted a reception in his residence in Athens on the occasion. As soon as I received my invitation I knew that it would be difficult to match Queen Elizabeth’s bright, monochromatic outfits but I got close wearing a green patterned Marimekko dress. The guests, including politicians, diplomats, artists and journalists queued in front of the Ambassador’ s residence, an impressive mansion in the centre of Athens. The guest of honor was Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons, one of my favourite British actors, whom I got to greet and who recited Shakespeare’s sonnet 18, as well as some Henry V, commemorating Shakespeare’s 400 anniversary. His readings were definitely the highlights of the evening and Irons was simply astounding, to say the least. What is more, a number of events celebrating Shakespeare’s legacy have been scheduled by the British Council in Greece for theatre and literature lovers until September 2016: performances, screenings, talks and activities have been planned and are announced through their website under the title “Shakespeare Lives”.

Is Athens by Night honestly “that” cool?

Duh, what do you think I’m trying to say! In the five years I was away from Greece it was one of the three things I missed the most. The amazing and upbeat nightlife, especially when the weather is good nobody minds being out and about getting from one place to another. And let’s face it, the weather is good more often than not. The Iced coffees, the Greek Frappe, Freddo-Cappuccino & Freddo-Espresso are gold next to an average iced-latte in Northern Europe. And my beloved souvlakia (well, tasty food in general, no offense other countries). Those are the things that made me homesick.

6. Jewish museum of Greece

  6. Jewish museum of Greece Athens has its fair share of museums, but I chose this one because I have a soft spot for small museums that yet reach big standards. The exhibition will guide you through the history not only of Greek Jews but also of Greece through World War II and the Civil War with very interesting storytelling. Afterward, you can have lunch down the street in Avocado, which makes delicious vegan burgers and pizzas. For a small museum themed day, the Museum of Islamic Art with its beautiful arabesques is also recommended.

Kavala : The Greek Monte-Carlo

The city of Kavala could be described only as a diamond. The county of Kavala, it is nested in the northeastern part of Greece, in the province of Eastern Macedonia. 180 kilometers east of the sub-capital of Greece, Thessaloniki, it constitutes the border between two greek provinces: Macedonia and Thrace. The county of Kavala is divided into four smaller districts: Kavala district – with the capital city of Kavala, Paggaion district – with the capital town of Eleftheroupoli, Nestos district – with the capital town of Chrysoupoli (Nestos district took its name from the river Nestos which is located in the area) and Thassos district – with the capital town of Limenas (which is actually referred to Thassos island)

Birdwatching in Greece - Lake Kerkini

Birdwatching is becoming a passion not only for the devoted biologist, but also to “common people” who love to travel, explore and mix nature with history. Such a place is Lake Kerkini, situated in the Macedonia region of Greece, just 40 kilometers from the border with Bulgaria.

The land of Gods and Goddesses

Everyone knows that Greece is famous for its culture and history. Wherever you go, it is a given that you will have a great sightseeing experience, the “taking a step inside history” kind of one. However, what makes the city of Thessaloniki so special is that, historical spots are spread around the city like bus stations! You could be walking between stores or coffee shops, and bump into an ancient ruin, or a small church or monument that was built back in the times of the Ottoman Empire. For this reason, some people are calling it an “open museum”. These unexpected historical encounters make tourism in Thessaloniki extra sweet, so make sure to always have you camera battery full before leaving your hotel! Of course, for those who want to go one step deeper, there are museums that teach about how the Greeks used to live during the five centuries under the Turkish invasion, and even back when Thessaloniki was a wealthy and influential Byzantine town. You will not only arrive home with an inventory full of pictures and souvenirs, but you will also bring back very useful and interesting knowledge about history and civilization!

Remembering a forgotten place

Lemnos ( also found as Limnos) is located in norther Aegean, not very far away from the coasts of Greece and not very far away from the coasts of Turkey. As many places in this part of the word, Lemnos has a long past between myth and reality. It has been used as a key port during First World War and also as a metallurgy workshop for god Hephestus, not to mention that it hosted the first city of Europe.

Best places to visit in Greece

The second you arrive at the Athens airport, a chilled windy breeze will welcome you, refreshing you and making up for the long hours spent sitting in the airplane. Athens has a good transport system, there are buses available at every 25-30 minutes, the subway, trolleys or taxis are also available.(for more information click here) A lot of the monuments and museums are in Athens itself so everything will be walking distance away for you. One bedroom apartments are also available if you’re looking for something more homely, the prices may vary but are affordable. I hope this article proves to be a good travel guide for all the people visiting Greece for the first time.

Greece: ideas to cheap traveling

What do you think first when you hear “Greece”? I’m pretty sure, your mind starts to show you images from books with statues of Zeus or Nike or ancient perfectly created Parthenon with it basement and columns so greatly implemented in Greek land that even strongest earthquakes could not move it from where it is. There is no easy way to sustain the charming attractions of Greece, whether we are talking about people, traditions, amazing landscapes or, of course, food.  But what can wide your understanding of Greece is a diverse body of cultural aspects that may be opened by a curious traveler, especially, for one oriented on cheap traveling.

Zakynthos - Il Fiore di Levante

Greece is a country with thousands of islands, and every one of them is worth visiting. With its turquoise sea, its unique scent of Mediterranean, long summers and friendly and welcoming locals every year it is attracting more and more tourists from all around the world. No matter where I go and what I do, I always visit Greece at least once a year, because there is so much things to see, to experience and to explore. This time I will tell you something about my trip to Zakynthos, which is also called  Il fiore di Levante (the flower of the East).

Thasos: A Lesser Known Greek Island

Have you ever found yourself daydreaming of eternal sunshine, crystal clear water, Greek salad, blue and white houses, or Kostas from the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants? Well then Greek island life is exactly what you are looking for! Unfortunately (or fortunately for many Greek people), thousands of tourists flock to the volcanic isles of Greece every year, filling up all of the hotels, restaurants, and attractions that you may want to experience! Most people know the major tourist islands Santorini, Mykonos, Corfu, etc., but during the summer a weekend in the cliffside town of Oia, Santorini will cost you on average around €500-€900 for your hotel alone. If you happen to be a twenty-something year old student like me, this would most likely fall way, way outside of a feasible budget. So how can you get the full experience of a beautiful Greek island for a fraction of the cost and at least half the number of tourists clogging up the beach?

The City Of Lefkada

The City, Isle of Lefkada. Greek ancient- ??????? is just another tropical island with special September magic. For those who are keen on planning their summer holiday in September, this is the right place to be.  Travel geeks and ancient, culture lovers probably know that Greece is the Balcan historical pearl with extraordinary history. Each day is  a new history.  Lefkada is considered as an island with the most changing climate over the past few years due to the water streams and frequent earthquakes.  The greatest part of the history has been devoted to the story of Odyssey from Itaka. As Homer described in his masterpiece, Greek antropologists determined that the directions from the book took place all over Nidri ( Lefkada) around including 6 other islands. Actually what is traditional about the of city of Lefakada not actually a city but a municipality of a few charming villages each inspiring by its own traditional culture and its own extravagant demographics. Lefkada is the only island which can be still accessed by car thanks to the floating bridge connecting Lefkada to the land which makes the things lots more easier for local tourists. What comes to the climate part, Lafkada is mostly appropriate for early autumn (September) period because of its mild, light hot air pressure during this period. Its not that recommended during hot summer days because of high water pressure, water streams and types of insects and animals. Well its an island, everything is possible :)! Lefkada is said to be the place that engrosses with special peacefulness during day time and long night techno, beach parties along with famous DJs. The most vibrant village is The city of Lefkada. Local villains kept their traditional food recipes and the traditional Greek cuisine all prepared with famous Greek homie Olive oil.
