Travel Director
  • "In Greece, we still break plates when we are excited, happy, dancing, celebrating our namedays or birthdays, get married or divorced!"
  • "The trick to really connecting with the Greeks is to say 'Kalimera!' (Good morning!) loud and proud to everyone you meet each morning, as we do, and to relax long enough to let your sense of humor come though. The Greeks appreciate people who lay the cards on the table, are authentic and show interest in the places they visit. "
