How does a little girl from Skokie, Illinois find herself in historical Athens, leading curious explorers through the winding streets of Plaka, down "pezodromos" to hidden ouzeries for tempting mezedhes and homemade barrel wine? The journey began more than twenty years ago, and regardless of whether the wanderlust comes from the spiritual and culture DNA flowing through my veins, or the alignment of the stars on that cold mid-December day this Sagitterian came into the world, I never seem to tire of exploring my adopted homeland of Greece. Here you'll join me as I explore Athens: be it the back streets of Psirri and Gazi, or through the National Gardens and Zappeio where a family of turtles makes their home, or down wide, treelined Imittou Street in Pagrati, which pulses with Athenian life 24 hours a day. And while Athens has stolen my heart, the rest of Greece vies for my curiousity and wanderlust. My two guys (that'd be the Greek God, Vasilis and our Greek dog, Scruffy) and I can often be found settling in for a long weekend in some charming mountain village, or a quaint fishing port on a nearby island, or learning how Greek vitners are producing wines that rival some of Napa Valley's finests productions, or celebrating a panayeri in Epirus or sharing in the festivities as a family of Cretan sheepherders come together to sheer their 1500 sheep in the spring ... And if you happen to find yourself heading to Athens, consider finding yourself a real home for your stay. Living amongst the locals, be it for 3 nights or 3 weeks, will offer you the chance to experience true Athens, beyond the Acropolis. Choose from one of our 5 beautiful penthouse and historical homes, and who knows, I may be leading you down that winding "pezodromo" to our favorite hidden ouzerie!

  1. Wow, this was an AMAZING, historic event! It was the largest concert in the past 20 years in Greece, and the weather held (well, the second night, it was cancelled the first night). The estimates were something like 70 – 80,000 people, and I cannot tell you how impressed I was with the audience. So different an experience from an American concert: The audience ranged in age from 8 months to 80 years, and though the stadium was packed, and moving in and about was difficult, people were patient (how different for the Greeks) and respectful.
    I’m sure there will be lots of videos appearing online in the next few days, but for now here is the first I’ve found:

    One of my top 5 favorite things about Greece occurred in this clip at about 7 minutes, when the musicians stop playing, the singer turns the mike toward the audience, and 80,000 voices sing in unison. I get goose bumps everytime I attend a Greek concert and this occurs!
