My fascination with travel started when i was quite young. When I was just 11 years old, I was very fortunate to have my dad take me on trips to different parts of the world. He was the captain of a ship and it was in these trips that I became fascinated with other cultures and places. I carried this love of travel through college, into my professional life, and i still love discovering new places to this day! Lately, I 've been focusing on the many hidden gems in my home country of Greece!

"I have one special memory that will stay with me forever!
A few years ago I was in my parent’s native island of Mitilini. During my childhood, we used to spend many summers there as a family.
I remember one summer on a warm night, we were with few friends in a local taverna in front of the beach. We were eating seafood and drinking ouzo (ouzo is the islands famous local spirit). We began singing and we were all enjoying the night, some music and the company. One of the friends was playing guitar... and suddenly I had an idea:
“Why don’t we go for a sailing under the moon light?” (It was full moon that night).
I wasn’t expecting that they would follow…but after a while we were all together in a small boat in the dark sea, sailing towards the moon light.
It was so magical! When we were under the moon, the friend with the guitar starting playing and singing and every time that I visit Mitilini, I remember that moment! That was for me an unforgettable experience!
