10 must try Greek foods

Greece off the beaten path: Astypalea

Every time I thought of Greece, the Greek islands always came into my mind.

Astypalea in Photos

For the past days, I had the opportunity to visit a Greek hidden gem, a very special place where people invite you to try their food, make you feel at home and are proud of being who they are. An island peculiarly hard to be reached, but worth every nautical mile of the way once […]
