About us

I am Anna, a yoga and nature-loving architect from the Netherlands. Until I fell in love with a Greek man. Ever since I started to know Greece, the country as well as the culture, I knew that life as I knew it was over. Currently, I’m working hard with my partner, friends, and family to find a way to move to a small town in the North of Greece to take care of my family-in-law.

The Greek culture explained

My story

Life in a small town in Northern Greece as a foreigner is not easy. How will I make money? Will I find friends and people to talk to? Will the family accept me?

This blog is here not only to provide you with the non-usual travel guide to Greece. It is also to share what happens behind the scenes. From my first love for this beautiful country, till the everyday life amongst the Greeks.
