I took this photo back in the late 1980’s I believe (may also have been early 1990 or 91), with a Yashica SLR camera but I don’t recall any other details – lens, aperture, shutter speed, etc but I probably have it written down in a notebook somewhere. The photo was a bit of an […]
Meet Debbie and Stijn I came across this couple a few months ago, when I received an email from Stijn in regard to one of my posts on purchasing an olive grove in Greece. Stijn related how he might be interested in looking for something in Italy and had some questions about how things went
Last weekend, we decided to try a new beach not too far from Nea Ionia. Normally, we head to towards Loutza Beach at Artemida (Attica) for various reasons but the traffic there can be insane and finding a parking spot can take forever.

We had a marvelous view of Mount Ypsarion (Ipsario), the highest peak on Thassos Island at
Back in early July when we began planning a trip to one of the Greek islands, we did not really know where we wanted to go. We made a list of all the possible islands and then did some research in regard to accommodations, ferry costs, and what each island might offer that was unique.
As mentioned in a previous post about The Acrocorinth, I had wanted to return to Ancient Corinth after the first time I visited it, back in November of 2017. We had not planned to visit this site back in 2017, but when we realized how close we were after a day trip exploring north and
There are many photos and adventures I’d love to share, but have been so behind in keeping up with them all in writing. I have some photos that I think are pretty nice from a short weekend trip to Ancient Corinth (but then, the scenery of Greece and a camera can make anyone look like
The other day, I came across an article in The Globe & Mail about a Brazilian who had made an “epic ride” on horseback from Alaska to Calgary this year. It seems that it is not the first epic horseback ride that Filipe Masetti Leite has made, and according to the article, once traveled on
