Deep in the heart of #PindosMountains in Central #Greece lies #MontanemaHandmadeVillage - a beautiful 'resort' hidden in the forest.  Very Little Red Riding Hood, come and read more about it.  Greece is more than just sea and sand.

Many of you will know that I belong to a great travel blogging network - Travel Bloggers Greece.  We’re a group of bloggers who aim to share our knowledge and help promote Greece to the international market.  Recently, we all took part in our inaugural trip to do just that – members of Travel Bloggers Greece were hosted by Montanema Handmade Village in the Pindos Mountain Range near Lake Plastira in Central Greece, not far from Karditsa.

Celebrating Cretan art and food at the +Pallas Athena Boutique Hotel Athens #travelbloggersgreece
Sunday 15th March saw another Travel Bloggers Greece meet up to discuss and share ideas, how we can positively promote Greece and work together. This time we were invited again to Grectotel Pallas Athena in dowtown Athens, to experience the artwork of Alexandros Androulaks, a Cretan artist. Alexandros showed us his works of art – my particular favourite being entitled “Despite the Recession,” depicting Greeks dancing and having fun, despite what ...

I loved my adventurous wander around #Anafiotika in #Athens. It's amazing this little village within a city.  Read on:
There’s a part of Athens that had always eluded me.  I had never been able to find it!  Anafiotika is the neighbourhood, located under the northeastern side of the Acropolis Hill, part of historical Plaka. History The neighbourhood came into being in the reign of Otto of Greece – the Bavarian prince who in 1832, became the first modern King of Greece.  Construction workers were needed to work on the King’s Palace, and they came from the island of...

Looking for fun, versatile travel fashion?  Look no further than Diane Kroe #Travel #Fashion - clothes that can be worn in a multitude of ways, and are wrinkle free! 
Read on:
As a regular traveller, both long and short haul, I’m always on the lookout for well made, comfortable and versatile clothing. When Diane’s collection came to my attention by fellow traveller and author Savannah Grace, I was keen to get in touch with Diane, place an order and interview the clothes designer.  Her clothes are great because one piece can be used as various looks.

An evenng of #winetasting at a new bar in #Athens #Greece called The Clumsies.  Housed in a 19th Century neoclassical building, with private party area - what more could you want?  Read on:
Nikos Bakoulis is the co-owner of The Clumsies – a newly opened, prestigious bar housed in an old 1919 neoclassical mansion, located in central Athens near Monisteraki and Panepistimio metro stations.  It’s actually hidden off a small square in Praxitelous street, number 30. [A] bartender is not only judged by the impeccable execution of a recipe, but also by the way he connects with customers. Nikos used to bartend in 2012 with fellow co-owner V...
