What Drove Us to Create a Site to Promote Greece and Taking a Vacation in Greece
I guess it starts with our backgrounds and who we are. We are proud Greek Americans - proud of our heritage, nationality and cultures. We were both born in America, one in NYC and the other in New Jersey. My Mom was born in NYC and so was her Mom but her grandmother (my great-grandmother) came to America when she was 16 from the island of Samos. My father was born in Thessaloniki and came to the US when he was 12. My partner's Mom was born in Cyprus and came to the US when she was 12 and his Dad was born in Athens, Greece and came to the US when he was 19.
I had never visited Greece until I was 26 years old despite having learned to read, write and speak Greek and learning all about mythology, the Greek Orthodox religion, learning to dance Greek, listening to Greek music and practicing all things Greek. What a moment the first time I stepped off that Olympic airlines plane! Greece is amazing!
I want to share my love of Greece and all things Greek on this site. I want to help you explore Greece; each of the Greek Islands, all of the history and places to visit, the best places to stay and eat and how to make the best of your visit based on how you like to travel - I also have some great Greek recipes that I would like to share - remember the Mediterranean Diet has been named the healthiest diet of all (and I can proudly add most delicious of all)!
