Our love for Greece goes beyond the average travel fling since Robin’s parents live here, and we make it a point to visit every year. But each trip is more than just a family reunion; we seize the opportunity to add new destinations to our ever-growing Greek portfolio.
Robin has been visiting Greece since his childhood days, and he even speaks a little Greek, enough to haggle in the markets and order off-the-menu items at local tavernas!
But what keeps calling us back, aside from the family ties and idyllic landscapes, is the mouth-watering Greek cuisine. Whether we’re in Santorini or Bali, a craving for gyros and gemistas or fresh olives always brings us back to our Greek memories.
With Robin’s experience and our annual visits, we’ve gathered a carefully curated list of recommendations, from Athens’ bustling squares to the tranquil beaches of lesser-known islands. When we recommend a hidden gem or a must-try dish, you can rest assured it’s been personally vetted by us!
