Thinking of Eleni… The small island we live on was rocked recently by the violent death of a young woman. Her body was found on Fokia beach, the last small cove between Pefkos and Lindos.
Over the winter months, I’m going to be doing a series of posts about blogging itself, with advice on the different aspects of blogging.
This summer a few people I know have said they are ready to embark on their own blogs and I want to pass on as much as possible that I’ve learnt to help them and anyone else.
Meet some travel bloggers today and find out what they have to say about Generation X. A small but powerful generation that’s now at its peak, ranging in age from late 30’s to late 50’s. Some say we are the silent generation but we’ve very much come of age.
International Women’s Day is a time to celebrate the women in our world and also remember that for so many every day life is struggle just because they are women.

NEA – Dawn of an Era
Greece in the not-so-distant future is in crisis. After years of austerity, the people are mute with fatigue and the prime minster sits idly by. However, NEA, a highly sophisticated military faction of a million Russian-trained aggrieved and mentally disturbed Greek men is about to be unleashed. the Greeks are embarking on one final crusade that could end all wars – but who is God siding with?

10 years ago this week, I applied for teaching job overseas and handed in my notice at work in London as a secondary English teacher.
That first job in Kuwait opened my eyes to a very different world. It opened doors to a future I could never have imagined in my London classroom.
I’ve never regretted a moment of that decision. For my own sanity I could no longer work in the UK, in a system that was more concerned with test results than educating the next generation to think for themselves and be able to make the world a better place.
In those 10 years I’ve been saddened to see an education system that was once the best in the world brought to its knees.
It is with sadness and pride that we announce today the closing down of Helping Hands of Rhodes.
Since this all first started in August 2015 we have worked tirelessly to help the volunteers and refugees on this island and others close by. Things have now reached a stage where we are no longer able to continue as an organisation. Though as individuals we will always be helping others in some way.
Today started cloudy with lots of coughing and nose blowing! Thanks to D who went out to the chemist, a cold and flu remedy and a good strong cup of Yorkshire tea got me going today.
