From the Greek:
Literally: “observer of beautiful forms” – (David Brewster, 1817)
Figuratively: “constantly changing pattern” – (Lord Byron, 1819)
Feel the radiant light on your face, escape time, explore and “observe the beauty” of this country. You’ll discover ever-changing scenery: unique islands, magnificent mountains, picturesque villages, bustling cities, ancient sites, fascinating museums, and so much more!
I’m Sofia, I live in Athens and I love history and travelling!
For as long as I can remember, I have always been absolutely fascinated by ancient civilizations, museums, culture, history and art. Growing up I became an archaeologist and loved working in museums, but I had an ever-growing wanderlust that remained unsatisfied. So, I decided to become a tour guide and travel to different places in my beautiful country, sharing my passion with other people.
Currently, I work full-time on museum projects, I lead tours all over Greece, and I’m doing a PhD in Greek Culture, Tourism & Pilgrimage.
I’ve started this blog because I wanted to share my love for travelling in Greece with you. For many travellers, this country is a “summer-only” destination, where you can visit a couple of islands and maybe Athens for a day or two. However, Greece is so much more!
