    Where can I eat Cretan food outside of Crete?

    Cretan cuisine is some of the best that I’ve ever tried. I don’t visit the island too often, but I do visit mainland Greece. I have two young kids, and the trip to Athens is already enough for them. I am wondering if anyone has any recommendations on Cretan cuisine in Athens or Attiki...

    These are the best hookah lounges in Athens

    Hookah lounges are becoming more and more popular in Athens and Greece. Originally, this was an ottoman tradition that faded out. But now it’s coming back, as it is all over the world. Cigarettes and vaping are also pretty popular, so the tobacco culture is definitely there in Greece. The two...

    This is the best road trip itinerary for Crete!

    First, I recommend that you start off in Chania and take a day trip to Samaria Gorge if you like nature and Elafonisi Beach. Then, make your way to Rethymno and enjoy the beaches and the culture of the city. After that, I recommend you go to Heraklion and visit Knossos especially, the ancient...

    How to make olive bread

    Olive bread is absolutely fantastic, and it upgrades every bread recipe. If you already have a bread recipe that you like, all you need to do is add olives to the dough. Kalamata olives are the classic, but any olives will do. The olives don't change the consistency of the bread, or mess up any...

    Use Greek yogurt as a cream for when you are sunburnt!

    This is a great Greek travel hack! The next time you get sunburnt in Greece, lather on some full fat Greek yogurt to soothe your skin. The yogurt acts as a moisturizer and also soothes the skin from the burn. You can also buy special creams from natural ingredients at Greek pharmacies for burns...

    Tsambika beach is a beautiful sandy beach

Next, you need to either beat it with a large spoon or something heavy, or slap it against your countertop...

    How accurate is the Thanos movie in comparison to Greek mythology?

    Thanos is a popular Greek movie but also an important figure in Greek mythology. Im wondering if any Greek mythology geeks know anything about whether or not there is any historical accuracy in the movies. I'm not sure if these big blockbuster movie companies are actually doing their due...

    Take a boat instead of driving to Porto Cheli!

    I've seen so many people rent cars and drive all the way down to Porto Cheli from the Athens airport. While this is a great option if you prefer to drive, many people overlook taking a boat because it takes just a little bit longer. The reality is that taking a boat is much cheaper, and you also...

    Did you know that you can see baby turtles being born in Zakynthos?

    This is a super rare experience that only exists during a small period of the year in Zakynthos. I cannot seem to find the exact timing of the hatching season, so if anyone knows please let me know. One of the best places that you can find these young turtles is Kalamaki Beach, which also...

    Antigone is one of the most twisted Greek myths of all time

    There are so many twisted and strange Greek myths that exist, but Antigone is probably one of the most freakish in my opinion. Antigone is the child of Oedipus and Jocasta, who is his mother. That makes Antigone the product of incest, and both the daughter and grandchild of Jocasta, and the...
