    Travel tip: pharmacies in Greece can offer valuable medical attention for minor issues!

    If you have some medical issues like bee stings, cuts, headaches etc. you will be able to consult with a pharmacist! This is not the case in Canada and I found it super helpful to go to pharmacists while traveling around Greece

    Rooftop bars at night provide the best view of the Acropolis!

    This might be my favorite thing to do in Athens! The best rooftop bars and restaurants are in Thissio, located right under the acropolis (that's where this picture was taken)

    Greeks sometimes speak loudly and use hand gestures- you should start loving it!

    One big part of Greek Culture is communication. My family is Italian, so I totally get it. Now that I'm in Greece, I'm reminded of how passionate and loud Greeks are. I love and appreciate this fact and I hope everyone else does to. Don't be alarmed or taken aback if someone communicates...

    Freshly picked veggies from my friends garden in Greece

    Fresh veggies only need a bit of salt, pepper and fresh oregano! That's all I marinated these bad boys in before tossing them in the oven

    What I order to stay healthy while on vacation!

    I've been eating a bit too many souvlakia while on vacation in Greece....so today I just ate salad, fava and melitzanosalata. Definitely a little bit too much cheese, but I would say overall healthy in comparison to what I usually eat LOL

    My new favorite food: boiled Greek octopus with herbs and vinegar

    I had this at a restaurant yesterday and I was floored with how tasty it was. I've never had such flavourful octopus. I asked the waiter and he said it had green onion, parsley, tomato, olive oil, red wine vinegar, a dash of balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. I will definitely try this recipe...

    Be careful, another heat wave is hitting Greece

    Greece is super hot these days. This means that there is a higher chance of wild fires in very dry areas (some parts of north Athens are on fire right now) and chance for you to have heat exhaustion and sun disease. Please everyone stay hydrated on your vacations and keep a close eye on elderly...
