Finally, Odysseus’ adventures and their relevance today, is best described by Bob Dylan who won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2016. He said,
“In a lot of ways, some of these same things have happened to you. You too have had drugs dropped into your wine. You too have shared a bed with the wrong woman. You too have been spellbound by magical voices, sweet voices with strange melodies. You too have come so far and have been so far blown back. And you’ve had close calls as well. You have angered people you should not have. And you too have rambled this country all around. And you’ve also felt that ill wind, the one that blows you no good. And that’s still not all of it.” - Reference link
My passion for Greek mythology, storytelling and Greece’s breathtaking landscapes is absolute! Coupled with my fierce love to protect, please and care for people, means you will be nestled in warmth and excellent hospitality!
Your travels to Greece will be a total experience of postcard imagery, adoring sunsets and a full immersion of local culture as we walk alongside the ghosts of Odysseus and Homer himself.
No guidebook or an app can offer such experiences and findings.
Finally, what makes us unique is neither our 20 years plus of unearthing my beloved homeland, nor our personal connections that bring delight to the trip, nor our unshattering passion to feel Greece’s love and beauty.
Instead, it is our understanding of you and your travel needs, paired with our personal experiences from living abroad that truly makes us unique!
Yes, it’s all Greek to us too, but we have simplified the process to ensure your journey is effortless and nothing short of magical!
