The Beauty That Was. Egremni Beach, Lefkada, Greece.

December 6, 2015
I can still remember that one hot summer day in September 2013. We were onboard Nidri Star Cruise which The Greek Mister and myself thought would be a good idea to explore Lefkada and beyond but then it turned out to be one of the tourist traps that you can get in this place.¬†Although we have just started the cruise and were on our way to our second stop, we couldn’t hide our disappointment that we only had

11-Day Itinerary to Greece

March 2, 2015
I have been receiving a lot of emails about itineraries from readers and I have helped some of them plan their own holiday itineraries as well (of course for a fee). Planning an itinerary for your holiday can be a headache but since I’ve done this for a living, it gives me an adrenaline rush specially if it’s for me and not for a client. Hah! I want my readers to feel the same when planning their holida

The (UN)official Travel Guide of Lefkada

October 10, 2013
I have been researching before I went for vacation about Lefkada but was really not able to see anything much apart from the official tourism websites and travel forums. So I relied most on the photos posted on Pinterest and Instagram and some documentaries about the place. It’s funny how these social media applications helped me a lot during this trip. I usually just browse through the photos and will tell t

Things (NOT) To Do in Lefkada: Take The Nidri Star Cruises

October 8, 2013
On our first day in Lefkada, we’ve seen a huge number of tourists get off the numerous boats used for cruising while we were having dinner at Greg’s Place. It should’ve served as a warning for us that it is a tourist trap but then it somehow got into me, the lure of being able to visit the nearby Ionian islands from Lefkada. We booked the cruise for EUR15 per person from a Nidri Star representati

Things To Do in Lefkada: Let The Paradise That Is Egremni Beach Take Your Breathe Away

October 6, 2013
Hands down, this is the most beautiful beach I’ve ever seen during this trip. The only thing that I regret was we took the cruise to get there which only gives us 50 lousy minutes to spend our time there. I wasn’t even getting comfortable yet as I lied down on the pebbled beach when the cruise ship that we’re taking blasted its horns already which means that it’s time to go back to the boat.

Things To Do In Lefkada: Enjoy The Cozyness of Agios Nikitas

October 4, 2013
We weren’t really planning to see Agios Nikitas, in fact we were headed elsewhere when we passed by it and the boyfriend saw a lot of cars parked in the area. He decided to check it out and luckily, we’re able to find a parking spot right in front of the square of Agios Nikitas which in fact is the entrance of the place. Agios Nikitas is a small fishing village with traditional houses and packed with Gr
