Megsy Food 1 Comment

We’ve been to Athens quite a few times now – and we just love love loooove the food. The Greeks make food that is fresh, tasty and steeped in tradition (many people joke that they don’t have chefs, they just have Granny chained up in the kitchen.) And if a quality meal that tastes exactly like a little old Greek lady would make at home is what you are after, …

Crete food - farm to table in Greece

Crete Food. Where Farm To Table Isn’t A Fad – It’s A Way Of Life

Megsy Food 3 Comments

Farm To Table – It seems to be the latest slogan being thrown around in the foodie world a lot lately. What a crazy concept! In this day and age is it really bizarre to think that things we consume actually come from farms not supermarkets? We are so used to pre-packaged supermarket foods it would be interesting to see how many people know how a pineapple, or even okra …

Our best and worst value travel from 2014

Tommo Fun Leave a Comment

What experiences were really worth the price tag in 2014? This is about value for money. Best quality for the lowest price. Value is that balance point in the middle. You can get a 4 hour train ride across India for $2… but you’ll be crushed in a sweaty box like cattle. That’s not value for money. That’s just cheap. Flying from London to Athens for $35 in a comfortable, …

Unexplored Greece: Discover life beyond the islands

Megsy Fun Leave a Comment

Crystal blue water, white homes with blue painted doors and shutters… Doing a quick google images search, it’s hard to believe there is more to Greece than picturesque Islands like Mykonos or Santorini.
