My love for travelling

From a young age I grew up with stories about distant lands, the places of origin of my family. Although I was born and live in Athens, my family has multinational roots, from Istanbul and Russia to Paris, Romania and New Zealand. It probably won’t surprise you if I tell you that I speak six languages!

Perhaps the most defining travel experience was my first plane trip with my parents from Athens to Crete, just before I was five. I was so excited to see the world from above that I remember it to this day.

Growing up, I was lucky enough to do a lot of travelling with my parents, in Greece and abroad. Needless to say, I couldn’t wait to travel on my own, so I went on my first solo trip abroad as soon as I turned 18 (and became legally an adult).

Later, as a university student, I went on more solo trips, from Paris to Canada, and I chose to do postgraduate studies abroad to have the opportunity to live in a foreign country.

About the blog

I started blogging in 2012, first in food and later in lifestyle. Flying Fork Tales is my most recent creation, “born” in the lockdown of 2020 – ever the optimist!

I like to get to know new places and try local cuisines (sometimes I even cook), and I won’t say no to a spa with a view of the Alps or a luxury brunch in Athens.

I am particularly fond of the Christmas markets in Europe and my goal is to see as many as I can. My priority when travelling is to combine comfort with authentic experiences, sustainability and support to local communities.

Keep in touch!
