About Greece

From the ancient, sun-scorched ruins of Athens, a five thousand year old city, re-inventing itself as one of Europe's cultural capitals, to the white-washed chapels and crumbling monasteries that pierce the blue skies while the Aegean laps at powder white sandy beaches along the endless coastlines of the Greek Islands. Local culture, famed cuisine, ancient mythical history and a vast array of nightly entertainment and action packed adventure await the intrepid traveller that sets foot upon its magical shores.

The ultimate guide to Sani Resort

7km of white sandy beaches, a private yacht marina, 27 restaurants and mind-blowing facilities – is Sani Resort Europe’s best family resort? Trying to find a luxury hotel that caters equally for adults and children can be a challenge. I’m tired of hearing the old cliché – ‘if kids are happy then parents are happy’. I know I have used it myself many times, but let’s face it, most kids are happy with a swimming pool and water slides! If I am going to spend a large chunk of my...

Don’t skip Symi, Greece! The Greek Island that will steal your heart

I leaned against the rail of the small Sebeco ferry as it bounced over the waves of the Aegean Sea away from Rhodes and towards my next destination. Like many of the Greek Islands, this new island looked sparse and rocky. Much of it covered in low, scraggly bushes with a few trees higher up in the hills. I kept my eye on the island as the ferry came closer to a small bay, tucked away around a corner. The ferry veered in and our final destination revealed itself to us. Brightly coloured houses...

The best things to do in Rhodes, Greece: A Rhodes itinerary

A Santorini itinerary for first-timers: 3-5 days in Santorini, Greece

No visit to the Greek islands is complete without a visit to Santorini, at least for a couple of days. I spent a week here and got to explore different parts of the island during my time. That being said, I know not everyone has that long to spend here but, in my point of view, you should spend at least 3 days in Santorini. It may be small, but there is a lot to see and do and, as I found, part of the charm is being able to relax and just enjoy the atmosphere. Which is why I’ve created this...

1 day in Athens, Greece: A history lover’s itinerary

Athens, Greece is amazing. I landed here after spending 2.5 weeks backpacking through Morocco and I honestly could have kissed the ground when I arrived and started to explore the city (you can read my real thoughts on female travel in Morocco here). Sure, Athens has a couple rough bits and yes, you do need to be aware of pickpockets, but I really enjoyed my time there. The lively squares filled with tavernas, the street art hidden around the corners, the cheap food options, and, of course, the...
