Agia Irini Square, the Hip Corner of the Athenians !

One of my favorite places to go out in Athens for a drink (but also dinner or brunch) is the Saint Irene Square (Plateia Agias Eirinis).

The beautiful, old buildings dating from the 1900s have recently been renovated and now house bars, cafés, restaurants and clubs popular with (young) Athenians.

Absolute Serenity on the Island of Gavnos !

A peaceful and relaxing stay on the Island of Gavdos

Today I invited another Catherine to my blog. She’s a travel specialist and works for the site named Prestige Voyages. She chooses to let us explore the island of Gavdos, which, as you will see, is a haven of peace in Greece.

It is, indeed, a wild island with very few tourists, which is full of sights and breathtaking scenery. The island of Gavdos is the perfect destination for those seeking a peaceful place !
