Last month, the Island of Crete was the scene of the first every Union Cup Regatta sailing event. Today, thanks to some help from the locals and sponsors, the true spirit of this amazing fist-time race can be revealed through a talk with the race’s winner, Captain of the yacht El Viento, Elias Kovatzis.
The mid season sales finish on the 10th of November. So, you have less than a week to snap up this season’s must-have items. Whether you need a pair of leather shoes, a romantic dress for a candlelight dinner or some of the finest Greek cosmetics, visit one of the city’s malls and start shopping!
For a country that is well known for it’s beaches and history and Mediterranean cuisine it’s sometimes a surprise to tourists to see that Greece is so much more than that…
Shop in Greece! Because you will find unique quality clothing that can be compared to high-end Italian or French fashion, we are privileged to have a lot of talented people in the Greek fashion industry that is growing and maturing day by day.
The 1st of November is just around the corner and for some of us that means Pay Day! Luckily the Greek Mid-Season Sales start on Friday and finish on the 10th of November. It is the perfect opportunity to start your Christmas shopping early and get ready for winter!
Take advantage of this transition period for fashion by purchasing statement pieces for less. That pair of knock-them-dead shoes combined with a Grecian chick dress or that leather jacket that you have been dreaming all autumn will be finally up for grabs at a fraction of the cost. So, let’s go shopping while stocks last!
The September equinox marks the start of fall. However, if you are in Greece the sun keeps on sunning, the sea is still warm and blue and Greek nature wears a beautiful orange-red garment. Autumn is the perfect season for changes. So, let’s start by updating our wardrobe…
Coffee is the world’s favourite way to wake up. Every morning it’s how I start my day, in fact these days I don’t think I can remember a time before starting my day with a strong cup of coffee. Over the years my tastes and preferences have changed from milkier drinks like a latte or cappuccino to a strong black coffee, I like to thinks it is my tastes evolving, but maybe it’s just getting a bit older and needing the caffeine boost to get me going in the mornings.
Earlier this week, the port city of Chania, Crete, was the scene of a momentous occasion: the start of the first ever Cretan Union Cup Regatta. Organized to celebrate the Centennial of the unification of Crete with mainland Greece, and running from 12 – 20 October, the race is also meant to honor the Cretan seafaring culture since ancient times. Between our colleagues on the ground in Crete, and many collaborators taking part, I was able to put together this encapsulation of the first ever Union Cup.
We believe in alternative ways of discovering the world.
In addition to taking guests around the well-known sights on Rhodes, a cosmopolitan island popular with tourists, we discover untouched land where the scenery alternates rapidly under the deep blue of the Greek sky, beside charming beaches and crystal clear waters.
When I entered in Athens on a sunset, after a long trip, I felt like I’m stuck between the chaos and the beauty. In the same time I felt the warmth of a southern metropolis. A big welcoming drink for that night: greek wine in the Acropolis museum bar with the most spectacular view on the Parthenon – I definitely got the connected with the ancient city.
I am no expert of Greece. I have been there only twice but luckily I was able to explore this beautiful country in depth thanks to the Greek boyfriend who was gracious enough and agreed to be my personal tour guide/driver. Having him with me during both travels made it really easy to fall in love with the country but I think even if I was to explore the country myself it would’ve still left me in awe.
