Katerina's Greece Travel Guide
As we officially kick off summer this weekend and begin to look ahead to a very different next few months, I'm excited to share my Greece travel guide with you. Growing up having spent all my summers in this beautiful country, there are so many places that hold a special place in my heart - and still so many more I'm excited to visit. If you're planning to travel overseas this summer (Greece is now open to vaccinated travelers!) - or even if you have your eyes set on a European summer sometime in the future - bookmark this note as a planning guide.
Greek Well Wishes, Minute by Minute
Happy New Year! Or "Kali Chronia" as we say in Greek, which literally translates to "good year". We all need some good wishes to enter 2021 on a new foot.
Mykonos, You Complete Me
The poet, W.H. Auden coined the term ‘Topophilia’ (which is Greek for “love of place”) to describe the way people experience a strong sense of place and how it drives their sense of identity and an underlying sense of belonging. It turns out we do form deep connections with places.
From Darkness To Light
This weekend, we are going to be celebrating Greek Easter, which is the most culturally significant holiday for our community. (And yes, it typically falls one week after Catholic Easter, super confusing, I know). As my family and I prepare for this holiday, I wanted to share some reflections about our traditions and how they relate to wellness.
