If you find yourself in Greece during Easter expect something a little different. There’s very little chocolate in the shops and hardly any bunnies at all.
Easter here is a serious religious event with a week of events all centred around the church.
I’m an expat, I’ve got this, it’s what I do and what I enjoy. Being uncomfortable, not knowing where things are any how things work on a basic level is what makes me tick.
Everything has all gone a bit Durrell in recent months on the Facebook page, “Looking forward to a little bit of the ‘Durrell’ life” is what ‘S’ said when she volunteered to drop everything and come to the island. The first guest post from ‘S’ a wonderful friend who is house and pet sitting for us on the island of Rhodes.
More than just a flight from Rhodes to Istanbul this is an experience and a journey. I’m going for 4 months leaving behind family and friends, pets and a home. I’m going to work and explore, enjoy the next few months and share them with you.
Christmas comes with many different traditions around the world and many of those involve food. This year we were invited into the village bakery Γλυκές Αναμνήσεις (Sweet Memories) to find out all about the local Greek traditions of Christmas.
Christmas on Rhodes is very different to Christmas we’ve experienced anywhere else in the world. This year I’m going share daily images and a glimpse into what it’s like to be on a Greek island at Christmas.
Last year I decided to do an acts of kindness advent calendar. This year I’m doing it again and there’s a free copy for you to download. Don’t get me wrong I love the chocolate ones but having lived in parts of the world where you can’t get advent calendars it’s good to do something a little different.
Many expats you’ll come across don’t like to be called expats. With the world in chaos around us it seems like a good time to a light hearted look at who we are. Revealed here are my list of the 17 types of expats you’ll find in Greece.
4 years ago we checked in lots of suitcases and 3 cats at Doha airport and began our Greek adventure. We had no idea how long the adventure would last. We thought maybe a year and then we’d be moving on. But, 4 years later and one more house move, we’re still here.

Rhodes tourist season begins officially with the start of direct flights from around Europe on April 1st. The weather in spring is warm and sunny with great deals available on early flights come and see what the island has to offer.
After the storms of last week, this one has been wall to wall sunshine. A little chilly at times with a cold north wind but beautiful. It’s been a good week to get out and get things done, around the house in the garden and in general.
