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.

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...

When it comes to exploring the Greek Islands, Santorini seems to be at the top of everyone’s list, for fairly obvious reasons. This postcard-perfect island is stunning. The white villages perched on the rocky clifftops look like they popped off the pages of a children’s storybook and the vibrant blue domes contrasting against the white buildings are brilliant against a backdrop of the equally blue sea and sky. Santorini is romantic fairytale that everyone wants to, and should, experience...
