The Travel Bloggers Greece recent trip to Zakynthos with Zante Hotels 4 U didn’t solely consist of beaches, caves and boat trips – we were afforded the opportunity to be shown around Zante (Zakynthos) Town, the capital of the island. St. Dennis’s Church and Bell Tower Built in 1708, the bell tower was one of only three buildings across the whole island that remained in tact (still standing) after the devastating earthquake that shook the island (...

Location Part of the Pindos Mountain Range in Central Greece – the Agrafa Mountains, where Montanema Handmade Village is located, are near the tiny village of Neochori.  This in turn is approximately 30 minutes from the bigger town of Karditsa.

What a great network of travelbloggers! The #TravelBloggersGreece celebratd six months of teamwork with a veritable choice of dishes from #ManasKouzinaKouzina in Athens.
#travelblogging #teamwork #LifeBeyondBorders #Greekfood  
Sunday 21st June 2015 was the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere – the Summer Solstice.  In some parts of the Hemisphere, people celebrated with their various rituals.  Here in Athens, Greece, we had a different reason to celebrate: the day marked the Travel Bloggers Greece 6 months of teamwork, sharing ideas and promoting this wonderful country. How did we celebrate?  In style of course, and this being Greece, that had to include...

Loving the Blue Caves and Shipwreck Beach in #Zakynthos  island.  Hosted by +ZanteHotels4U.com, the #TravelBloggersGreece  had an amazing time.
#IonianIslands   #Greece   #ILoveGreece   #ZanteHotels4U   #LifeBeyondBorders   #BlueCaves   #ShipwreckBeach   #nature   #beauty   #boattrip  
After having seen the amazing Keri Caves, Oasis Beach and Marathonisi Island, I wondered what other natural wonders Zante Hotels 4 U had in store for us. I was unprepared for what lay ahead. NOOOOOO! After all the “Ohhhh”s” and Ahhhhh’s of the previous day, I thought we’d be all caved out.  But no.  Zante Hotels 4 U drove us to Skinari Lighthouse, the closest point to the Blue Caves and Shipwreck beach. Walking down the small steps to the water’s...

Olive oil, amazing blue waters and mysterious caves await you when you  decide to holiday on #Zakynthos  island in #Greece  Read on:
#ILoveGreece   #TravelBloggersGreece   #GreekIslands   #BeachHoliday   #LifeBeyondBorders  
The Travel Bloggers Greece second day in Zakynthos saw us visiting a traditional olive oil factory and an amazing private boat tour to the Keri Caves. Aristeon Ecological Olive Press Located near Lithakia Village, this family business started operation in 1850 and the current factory is only four years old. I never thought olives could be so interesting to be honest!  Did you know there are over two million olive trees on Zakynthos and that in th...

How to travel by coach and surprisingly luxurious ferry from Athens to the Ionian Island of Zakynthos in Greece. Read on!
#Zakynthos   #greekislands   #IonianIslands   #levanteFerries   #summer   #summerholidays   #TravelBloggersGreece   #ZanteHotels4U   #LifeBeyondBorders   #Greekislands  
Back in 2013, I wrote a post about alternative ways to reach the Ionian Islands instead of flying (Kefalonia, Ithaca, etc).  Recently, Zante Hotels 4 U  invited members from Travel Bloggers Greece  to be hosted on their wonderful island.  Myself, Passion for Greece, My Greece My Travels and Foodaki (a Greek food travel blogger, page also available in English) went along to find out about this Ionian island. First, we had to get there Zante Hotels...

I’m so excited, I could burst!  In the summer of 2010 I was back in the UK visiting family.  One lazy summery afternoon, I was dozing in bed.  You know that halfway stage between sleep and being awake?  Well, that’s the time for me when all my thoughts come together and I think random strangeness. Except this time was a ‘Eureka!’ moment. Why not start a novel about your experiences in Greece?  It’s nice you’ve got a blog, but why not push yoursel...
