About Helen

My love affair with Greece began in the early 1970’s and during the intervening years, I have returned there whenever possible to experience, what is, the Greek lifestyle!  First, and foremost, the people – the food, the wine, the climate, the music – I love them all!

The magic that is the light, the vibrant blue of the sky and sea and the redness of the soil. In places, the landscape appearing unchanged since the beginning of time.

I dream a dream of retiring one day to a small holding, maybe on Crete? To that end, I find myself travelling back once again, this time for an extended budget stay of up to 6 months. Putting my real estate career on hold, I will commence my journey on 23 April 2010, departing from Wanganui, New Zealand. With a reasonable knowledge of the Greek language tucked away in the recesses of my brain and with backpack only, I will move around much of the mainland and visit many of the islands. Renting rooms along the way and catching local buses and ferries and, of course, making the most of the Greek hospitality.
