Amazing Greek sites

Below is a collection of amazing and inspirational sites about modern Greece…

____________________________________________________________

“Living Postcards” is a site about the things we like in Greece, the things that we want to share with you.

We love this country. A lot. And we don’t see it with the eyes of a typical old fashioned tourist, who bought postcards once from a trip to Greece. Ours are real. They are breathing, scents, pictures, words, feelings, people. They come alive every time we look around.

Boutique hotels that we want to spend time in there. Artists that make us think, smile, reconsider things, change. Painters, photographers, modern galleries, because “art is life” and life is art also..

New fashion and jewellery designers that makes us proud here and abroad. They give a new definition to “chic and Greek”. Local products, Mediterranean tastes, high class restaurants where you can have fun eating, and socializing. After all “food is pleasure”. Cosmetics from alternative brands with quality products, respecting mother nature. Because we all need “pure beauty”.

New musicians, that make the difference. More than the typical sound of Greece. “More than bouzouki”.

All these people are the proof that when you really love something, you fight for it. You cant hold back, you move on, no matter what you have been told, no matter all the negative scenarios and tough reality, you have to try and make your dreams come true.

The new Greeks are not afraid to be compared to  their ancestors. They respect their inheritance, but they live “here and now”, with a global open mindness.

Join us in this trip. Its full of joy and a strong belief for a better tomorrow. I hope you will enjoy it!

Most people highlight the day they married as one of the best moments of their life. For me, it was a night in 2003 when I raised my eyes above the cobble stone streets of Plaka and saw the Parthenon for the first time. At that moment I knew I was married to Greece.

Much has changed since 2003. I am often asked why I choose live in a country with so many problems. Why not return to America? Modern Greece is poor, hungry, and extremely scandalous. And while an alarming number of Greeks are moving abroad, many are returning to a life of simplicity while embracing the love of family, which the Mediterraneans are so famous for.

It should be noted that the complexity of mythology still echo throughout Greece. Locals whisper of fabulous legends that inspire and ignite the imagination. While working on various projects I’ve discovered an abundance of lesser known archeological sites that I fear are in risk of fading away.

One day I’ll have to pack my suitcase and leave this dream-like land behind but in the meantime I want to share my experiences with the world. From the troubled streets of Athens, to the tranquility of the islands, to the isolated yet blissfully naïve villages of the country side.

There is still so much to learn from the Greeks.

This website is a tribute to them.
