I strongly believe travel is the food for your soul. It opens your mind to endless possibilities and helps to give you a better understanding of the world we live in.
Travel has always been a great passion of mine and I love nothing more than to share my knowledge with others, to enable them to enjoy incredible experiences that stay with them for a lifetime.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I would say that I love a good story and a good meal, so from that point of view I would say I specialize in historical sites that specifically involve mythology and local cuisine.
The area that I specialize in would have to be the Aegean and its islands as well as the central Athens area, since this has now been my home for 5 years."

How did you get involved in travel?

"I originate from England, so it's no surprise I sought out a warmer home. I found myself applying to be an overseas travel guide and in my first role I was sent to the Greek island of Samos, it was from there my love affair with travel and Greece started. It was at that moment I knew that travel was what I was destined to do.
I was lucky enough to travel to various islands and different countries helping hundreds and thousands of guests experience the destinations, but I missed my beloved Greece with its culture, cuisine and of course the warm hospitality you receive from the people themselves; So much so that I stayed and have now set up my own home in the capital, Athens. I continue to travel and help others travel, but now from the Country I love."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"One summer I took a small trip on board a small Greek fishing boat out to the Aegean sea were we stopped and caught our own fish and calamari. We then sailed onward to a small alcove with crystal clear waters to swim and snorkel while the captain and his wife cleaned and cooked the fish we had caught that day. It was by far the freshest fish I had ever eaten and the local wine was delicious. The clear blue sea, the freshly caught and cooked fish combined with the hospitality of the captain and his wife provided me with an experience that will stay with me a lifetime."
