“Travels with Epicurus”

By |September 24th, 2013|Categories: Europe, Greece|Tags: , |

 An extract I found in the back of the book by Daniel Klein, a satirical irony of the mentality of Americans Vs Europeans in Life & Work.

Epicureanism as a Living Philosophy Today

Aegean islanders like to tell a joke about a prosperous Greek American who visits one of the islands onvacation. Out on a walk, the affluent Greek […]

Mini me is off to Whimderlust!

By |September 10th, 2013|Categories: Europe, Israel, Mykonos|Tags: |

What is this term “Whimderlust” I refer to? Out of all the travel jargons, this is a first I’ve heard this too. My baby sister invented that word a few days ago for her blog, creating a fusion between traveling on a “Whim” & “Wanderlust”. Hey, who knows if it’ll end up on the Webster […]

Santorini – Most romantic Island?

By |June 4th, 2010|Categories: Santorini|

We slept in past noon today, the first day we’ve done that. The weather got slightly better and more warm. We walked 15 minutes into the main town area to schedule our transportation to Athens. A 1 way flight would be 107 euros, but the travel agency gave us the option for a overnight ferry […]

Oia, Santorini

By |June 4th, 2010|Categories: Santorini|

We arrived to the port around 7 pm, rented a small Hyundai for 25 euros a day from some major Greek hustlers. They also helped us arrange our accommodation stay at Fira Blue Horizon Guesthouse. We drove up the windy mountainous road to our hotel in Fira, the main city area, central location in Santorini. […]

Mykonos.. a Greek WeHo

By |June 4th, 2010|Categories: Mykonos|

Wednesday night, Thodoris (Sherry & Paris’ friend who works as a driver at the 5 star hotel Tharroe Hotel, in Mykonos) picked us up around 11pm with his friend for dinner in Old Venice. We went to Pasta Fresca, an authentic Italian restaurant, where the guy in the front is literally rolling the pasta right […]

Falling in Love with chaotic Mykonos.

By |June 2nd, 2010|Categories: Mykonos|Tags: |

We awoke at 9am this morning, and put on our ipod to hear the songs stuck in our head. Jason Derulo “In my head” and Ludcaris “Break your heart”. After the music woke us up, we got ready slowly and wandered down to Nicolas Restaurant again for brunch. I ordered the Octopus salad and Marissa […]

Greek food: Fulfilled 1 of the 7 sins: GLUTTONY.

By |June 2nd, 2010|Categories: Mykonos|Tags: |

Greece is known for it’s beautiful beaches. The big families. The history. The white Togas. The ‘Alpha’ sexy men, where the word among the rest of the alphabet roots from. The big weddings. The white adobe houses with blue painted windows. The donkeys perhaps. The hedonistic life.

The food here has stood out the most to […]

Mykonos: A Hedonistic Society.

By |June 1st, 2010|Categories: Mykonos|

After some heavy bumps in the road, we never let the spirit get us down. We arrived at the Hotel Association of Renters at Old Port, and entered the room to a sweeter lady who asked us what we needed. We told her we prefered a home stay for 50 euros or less. She had […]

My Perspective: Observing Greek Culture

By |May 31st, 2010|Categories: Mykonos|

What protest? What declining Economy?

We haven’t felt one inch of that here in Mykonos. Well it certainly is the most popular island to visit in Greece. We have seen more Americans traveling in Turkey and Greece than anywhere I’d been. I’d say 65% of the people we’ve come across, along with Canadians, and Australians (per […]

1st day: Paradise Beach, Mykonos.

By |May 30th, 2010|Categories: Greece, Mykonos|

From Samos, we took the Ferry at 1:30pm to Mykonos.. arrived at 7pm. We rode the Hellenic Seaways (50$) Yacht which was nicer than any Yacht I’ve ever been on. The first 2 floors being work area & 3rd/4th being savvy parking lots for cars and motorcycles. The 6th and 7th floor having sun decks […]
