Greece – 2018

Greece has always been a place I have wanted to visit. My ancestory is Greek. My mother was born in Greece and my father’s father was born in Greece. His mum was born in Australia to Greek parents. I have family all over Australia. Some of whom I’ve never met. I definitely hadn’t met the majority still living in Greece. So it was always something I’d wanted to do but never really thought I’d get the chance to.

That all changed when my cousin announced he was going to get married over there. Hello destination wedding!! In June! Summer in Greece, yes please!! The stars aligned and off we all went. Me, my sister, my father (who’s never been there) and my mother (who hadn’t been back since she was in her late teens), my other cousins, aunties, uncle, phew off we went. A full 24 hours  and we were there.

First stop Athens!

As we have a lot of family in Greece we stayed with cousins. We had about 2 days to start off our trip and bright and early the next day we were off to the Parthenon. As it was the beginning of their summer in June it was busy without being too crazy. July and August tend to be Greece’s busiest times. So if you want to miss the really big crowds I suggest going in June. The Acropolis is a beautiful site to see. As our most of the ruins in Greece. It is something that if you go, you mustn’t miss. If you do it once you don’t need to go again. It’s lovely for the history and just the splendour of it, but it is hot exercise and be warned, wear good shoes as the marble is slippery. I did indeed see someone fall right on their butt. Ouch. To think of how they built this is incredible. They are restoring it and if you look closely on the ruins up there they are all numbered and itemized. You can see the amphitheatre from the top as well. We didnt head down there as we were a bit hot and bothered. We also didn’t check out the museum which I have heard from everybody is quite incredible. Next trip.

Driving in Athens is a crazy sight to see. Motorcycles and scooters zipping and weaving through traffic, taxi drivers stopping in the middle of the street to pick up a fare, cars double and triple parking, even on corners!! It is mental but I found the Taxi drivers to be extremely friendly.

We took a horse and carriage to the main shopping district and walked around all day. There are some pretty cool shops and of course some tourist shops. We did spot a shop for Priests which I found to be so adorable. I mean they need to buy their uniforms too.

After a quick drink out with the cousins we sailed out the next day on the ferry (which is huge by the way) on our journey to Santorini. Now some family members didn’t like taking the ferry but I think it’s a cool way to see some of the other islands that you pass along the way. It takes 5 hours from Athens to Santorini. If you want to get there quicker, the plane is 45 minutes. I myself wanted to see some islands along the way.

Arriving in Santorini you have big expectations. You see amazing pictures, celebrities holidaying and it looks phenomenenal. Now, to be real. PARTS of Santorini are absolutely magical. We saw: Fira, Oia, Imerovigli, Pyrgos. These places were stunning to see. However, us youngins did do stay in these parts. I highly recommend that you do. It is expensive yes, but totally worth it. If you stay further out you have massive Taxi fares. Seriously taxi drivers in Santorini will rip you off and they are not that easy to come by. They were not friendly. Not at all like the Athens drivers. But we did have a little church across the road so that must be a good sign right?

Myself, my sister and my cousin all arrived at our accommodation within a few hours of each other. Then we decided to walk from our Villa to the main town of Fira (Thira) where my parents were staying. Well that little walk took 1 hour. We kept stopping to read menus along the way but not everyone could agree. So we kept on walking. No taxi’s passed us. no busses in sight. Walking it is. We passed a winery, many churches and then we finally made it to Fira. We couldn’t find the parentals so we just decided to go to dinner along the cliff. Fira is quite beautiful. There is beautiful big church right up the top called The Orthodox Metropolitan Cathedral. It’s gorgeous. There happened to be a  wedding that night. What a spot! But I did see a better one haha. We saw a sunset, haggled with shop owners and flirted with a waiter and ate some awesome food. It made the very long worth it.

Best place to stay in Fira, right on the top across from the church and with the friendliest staff is Aressana Spa & Hotel Suites Absolutely AMAZING service. Mum & dad stayed here and the staff were so accommodating to us even though we weren’t. The best!

Our next day in Santorini was one I was wildly looking forward to. I kept seeing Instagram and Pinterest photos of this gorgeous pink house, I googled it one day and low and behold it is on Santorini. So if I’m going there I am definitely getting a pic outside. So off we went to Oia. This was another very rocky start to our day. Oh boy! Way too crazy to get into. Bad Air BnB, Windy maze streets with no signage, bad taxi drivers. I mean CRAZY! But off we went to Oia.

We arrive in Oia and start on our journey to find all the pretty instagram worthy spots. There are a tonne of them so fear not. We also luckily missed the rush of the big tour groups so that was a blessing. I’m not getting stuck behind all these people in the tiny alleys and all taking pics.There are lots of little shops along your walk selling tourist souvenirs and also actual l stores selling clothing and jewellery, shoes, art, you name it it’s there. Now I knew that I should wear more sensible shoes, however they did not go with  my outfit. Bad decision. My slides were very slippery on the cobblestone, but I looked good 😉 There are beautiful churches on the hills and stunning cave houses galore. These were what I was after, as was everyone else taking pics. I have to say people were fairly respectful about taking turns and not hogging the scenery. We are all there doing the same thing so be patient and be kind. I was desperate to find the pink cave house which I know now is called the Kastro Oia Houses and it is beautiful. I got my pic and I was happy. We had lunch at a lovely rooftop bar and had the best Grilled Octopus I had in all of Greece. After lunch we did try and find a beach bar. Well everyone was telling us that there are none. Yeah right! We finally got the name of one (the waiter wanted to take us but he was a little on the creepy side so no thanks) and off we went to get some sun, drinks and pool. The beaches in Santorini are not the best for swimming as the island is Volcanic so the beaches aren’t the greatest but on the opposite side of the island there is a swimming area. No time for that this trip so off to the beach bar we went.

Sea Paradise in Oia is a gorgeous bar sitting right on the beach. The staff are incredible and so friendly, and the atmosphere is lovely. It’s good for family’s too who want to chill out, there is a play area set aside for the kids. Like I said earlier, taxi’s are hard to come by so when we finished up here one of the owners mother’s very graciously drove us back into Oia main city so we could go see the sunset and have some dinner. I had some pretty amazing Lamb chops for your information. I recommend if you head to Oia definitely go to Sea Paradise

Donkey pics taken by my sister and my cousin.

Our next day on Santorini was what we were waiting for. The WEDDING! It was in Imerovigli and it was stunning! A wedding at sunset overlooking the ocean with nothing to block the view is pretty incredible. Always take flats with you when wearing hells as the streets are very uneven. I tripped haha. I was also too lazy to put on the flats I had in my bag. Mistake. Oh well.

Now I wont post too many pics from the wedding as that is not my place but I will give you a teaser. The reception was in a beautiful function location in Pyrgos. They had fireworks, pyrotechnics and Greek Dancers and plate smashing. It was pretty epic. I love a fun wedding, everyone was dancing away. In case you’re wondering, no I did not take my heels off. Dress is by La Maison Talulah.

Yassou Santorini off we go to Syros, or so we think. These Ferry’s don’t muck around. Ours was late coming into Mykonos so we missed the connecting boat. Impromptu stay in Mykonos it is. We were offered a nice cheap accommodation and re-booked for the next morning. Now to be completely honest Mykonos was not an island I wanted to check out. Well Santorini didn’t really meet my expectations so lets give Mykonos a try. To be honest, from hat I saw of it I actually liked. The water was so crystal clear and we had an amazing lunch at this restaurant called Thea along the waterfront. Friendly staff and delicious food. I will say that once you tell people in Greece you are of Greek decent they are overjoyed. Places like Santorini and Mykonos get so many tourists and not many fellow Greeks so they really appreciate having someone to talk to and have a laugh with. We went straight to bed after this. I absolutely crashed I was that exhausted from the wedding. I would definitely come back to Mykonos and really explore the island.

Next stop Syros. We were very excited to get to Syros as we were going to be meeting dad’s cousin and staying with them. They have created the most beautiful accommodation on Syros. It is Eco-friendly, there is a vineyard, olive groves, beautiful garden, fruit and vegetable patch for you to pick from. The buildings are over 300 years old and have been restored so beautifully.  I cannot say enough nice things about this place it is remarkable. Do yourself a favour just click the link and go to the website and have a look for yourself. My pictures will not do this place justice. They also do a weekly wine tasting night with some of the best Greek wines you can get your hands on. Check out The Good Life

The food on Syros is amazing. We had the best and biggest lunch of all things seafood and classic Greek meze (tapas) dishes. We went to a great beach bar with some beautiful shops (which I regret not getting a gorgeous woven cross body bag from) and so many beach chairs to sit and bake. I had the best Mojito of my life at this bar. YUM! The water was absolutely freezing so I only went in twice up to my knees (it’s so shallow so far out) but there were also a lot of rocks through the water and I will trip on a flat surface I’m not risking it in rocky water. Out I came. I’ll just bake thank-you very much haha.

Fun Fact: Syros actually used to have a lot of Italians on the island so there are a lot of really incredible and grande big Venetian houses. They are massive and stunning. Some are empty and need someone to buy them and give them a little love.

We headed into the main city area of Syros and it was so refreshing to have some space. Syros is a really good mix of traditional and touristy. It is on the rise but as of yet not overly busy with tourists. Which is both a shame and a blessing. The Island is stunning and so friendly and peaceful. Here I was on the hunt for some shoes. I found a great little boutique that stocked Ancient Greek Sandals and well I bought myself two pairs. Why not, holiday mode spending. I found some gorgeous jewellery to buy people presents and there are so many yummy bakeries with chocolate and lollies and pastries galore.

It was sad to leave Syros but we had more places to go to. If you go to Greece do not skip this island. Stay at The Good Life and eat and drink away.

Quick stopover in Athens overnight to meet some more relatives and eat some amazing home cooked food then off to our next island.

Mum’s home Island of Lesvos. Now as the ferry ride to Lesvos is 24hrs we decided not to waste time and hop on the plane. That takes you 30 minutes. They give you a lovely little fruit lollie on the plane before departure for your ears. So cute.

Now this was a jam packed trip in three days. We had a lot of places to see, a lot of family to meet and mum wanted to show us her old stomping grounds. Mum’s Uncle was our chauffeur for the trip and as he lived 2 minutes away from our accommodation it worked out beautifully.

We went and saw some of the oldest and biggest churches on the Island/Greece. These churches the community do pilgrimages to at certain times of the year. Mostly Easter. It is long drive and the walk I’ve been told from our cousin takes her 12 hours. They come from Athens to do it. There is accommodation at the monasteries for people to stay after the pilgrimage. It’s quite remarkable and the churches are magnificent and filled with so much history and tradition. They do bus tours to these churches so I would definitely put it on your bucket list.

There is the Monastery of Taxiarches in Mantamados which is for the Arch Angel Michael and there is the Church of The Panagia (Virgin Mary) in Agiassos which has the tallest mountain peak on the island. Click on the link for more information on both churches. Churches and Monasteries in Lesvos

Now you aren’t allowed to take photos inside the churches or the church grounds. I was a bit naughty and only took photos of the church grounds, not inside.

Monastery Of Taxiarches in Mantamados

Church of Panagia in Agiassos

The township up at Agiassos is very pretty. Lots of great shops with handmade prayer bracelets by the monks. There is a small museum, great little cafes. It is beautiful.

Lesvos is Greece’s biggest producer of Ouzo (which I am not a fan of sorry) and the island is covered in Olive Trees and lavender. My grandparents used to have a big Olive Farm when they lived there. Mum used to help pick the olives. The smell is kind of amazing due to all the Olive Trees. There is an olive press too that we drove through regularly called The Dip. However I think it now may be closed. Not only were our family in the Olive Business but they were also big fisherman, workers at the leather factory and much more. Now we have family that run and own restaurants, cafe’s bakeries and much more. Apparently we are related to most people on the island unbeknown to us haha.

A few pics from our drive around the island, the dip, the old leather factory and more. Side note – certain parts of the island you can see Turkey and it is close. There is a big Military presence in Lesvos  as unfortunately there is still quite a bit of tension between the two countries. The guards watch the borders.

The town of Perema and the main city of Mytilini were mum’s two main places. Perema is an older little town but very quaint and has some great eateries and The Dip and of course churches. Mytilini is the bustling city centre. I loved the city streets lined with shops and fish markets and the marina. It’s quite pretty and fairly hip.

2018 1831

Now there is still quite a heavy presence of refugees on the island. The main city centres do not stay open too late any more at night as it is just not safe to do so anymore. It’s a sad situation on both sides but I’m hopeful that things will get back to normal soon. It’s sad when the locals who have lived there for generations are considering leaving the island because it’s not safe anymore.

After a very busy few days in Lesvos we are back off to Athens to spend the next few days before my sister and I leave back home for Australia to get back to work. Our parents decided to take the opportunity to stay on for four more weeks to visit more family and more islands. I’m a bit jealous.

I decided on my last day that I would get my mum’s cousin who has an awesome Hair Salon to do my hair. FULL colour and cut. It is the nicest salon and the best colour and cut I have ever had. How on earth I am going to get someone here at home to replicate it is another story. That night with my new hair we went to a beautiful marina where there are incredible fancy expensive yachts (like you see on The Real Housewives), restaurants and bars all along the docks. Very cool and hip. A great place to go on a Friday night.

2018 1943

The next day we jetted off on our journey home. I enjoyed my time in Greece even if it was rushed and even if we did have a bit of a stinker of a time in Santorini, it was still all fun and I wouldn’t change any of it. It’s all experiences and that is what makes a holiday fun. I would like to add a few more islands to my next trip and take my time a bit in each place. Greece made a big impact on me and I feel as though my priorities have shifted a bit for the better. The lifestyle in Greece is so lovely and relaxed and yes they take their break during the day, but they re-open and work until late. I couldn’t see a lot of people in the Western world doing this. People make fun of the Greeks for being lazy and smoking everywhere and the traffic but that’s just how they have always been and you get used to it. I would not say they are lazy. It is people who would rather enjoy their time on this earth and have a break and have some fun, but at the same time they are friendly and from what I saw incredibly hard workers. Do not judge a place until you have been there and experienced it yourself. Take it all in. It’s some of these qualities that I think the western world could use to adopt and chill out a bit. As cheesy as it sounds, don’t live to work, work to live. You get one life so enjoy it.

Greece is beautiful and fun and historical. If you have the opportunity please go.

*you will find a lot of the cities in greece are spelt a bit differently to the spelling you are used to and some islands the don’t pronounce the ‘s’ on the end as the names have been westernised.

New Zealand – 2018 

At the end of March/early April I took a trip to New Zealand with my best friend and her parents. Now we were going just for Ed Sheehan – seeing as though we couldn’t get tickets in Australia – but then we thought ‘Lets make an actual trip out of it’. What a bloody fantastic idea!

We spent two weeks driving around New Zealand from town to town and booking accommodation as we went. Something that yes did freak me out, but it all worked out beautifully.

We first landed in Christchurch. A lovely city that has seen so much heartache. Seeing the destroyed buildings and old churches is terribly sad and the white chairs that are laid out to remember the victims of the earthquakes is a touching site.

But the city still has lots of potential. Our first day we went to lunch at Little High Eatery thanks to the our awesome concierge’s suggestion. It is enclosed with a number of tasty options, pizza, Asian, burgers! You name it it’s there.

If you are in Christchurch be sure to head the restaurant to Bloody Mary’s that sits outside the Rydges hotel. It was the best food and wine we had in the whole South Island. Definitely get the 100grams of Maple Glazed Bacon, you’re welcome!!! Also there is a lovely little French Town just about 1 hour out of Christchurch called Akaroa which is beautiful and the drive is lovely.

And if you’re staying in Christchurch definitely do stay at the Rydges. It’s lovely and so are the staff. Plus Bloody Mary’s is downstairs- BONUS!


We then drove to Franz Josef Township. On the passing Castle Hill and going through Arthur’s Pass. Scary yes, but such a pretty drive. Castle Hill was lovely and majestic and cold. We didn’t climb all the way up but even if you don’t the sight you see is still stunning. And we saw actual red mushrooms!!


Side note, Deer are weird…


Next stop Franz Josef Township. Up in the mountains with snow on the peaks, magical. We stopped here so we could go up to the glaciers. This place is small but it’s gorgeous. The highest peaks in Australasia. The glacier ride up in the helicopter (yikes!) but it’s 20mins and totally worth it! We flew over the Frans Josef glacier and landed on the Fox Glacier. This was for lack of a better word, Epic! I had never seen snow before and am scared of flying and after we left I wished we could’ve stayed up there longer. It was insanely cool, no pun intended.


After this off we head to Wanaka. Wanaka is so beautiful and chilled ou. Good for a slightly older crowd. It’s like Queenstowns older sister, cautious but pretty. I wish we had more time here to explore Lake Wanaka properly and the Wanaka Tree.  There is also a Blue Pools wall that we didn’t have enough time to do so next trip. I hear it’s gorgeous. There are some great little bars and eateries and pretty much everything has lake views. Our accommodation had views of The Remarkables which was outstanding.


What to do in Wanaka, well you can go shooting (I was not good), or there is a pretty cool old Toy and Car museum.

Next stop: QUEENSTOWN

driving to Queenstown you can go one of two ways, over the mountain or around it. Over is quicker. The sights are better too. Just do it. On one lookout you are up at the same height of planes. Woah.


I am slightly obsessed with how stunning Queenstown is. Now I’m from the tropics in Queensland, Australia. I’m used to warm conditions. This was cold but you climates every quickly. I think the splendour of the place takes over and you’re more focused on how beautiful and chilled out it is rather than how cold you are.

Yes we hit Ferg Burger. Amazing!!!! Sat in the main area near the lake and had gorgeous ducks around us whilst looking at the lake and all the gorgeous pine trees. There are a lot of tourists and a lot of European workers who come to work and ski. It’s quite awesome that this is what they’ve chosen to do. I’m a little jealous in all honesty.

We dined at a few amazing places my favourites being The Botswana Butcher – they do brilliant desserts – and Winnie’s for awesome pizza then if you wish hang around while it turns into a club.

We went up the sky rail and once you get to the top the view of Queenstown is remarkable. You can do all sorts of fun activities up there if you wish, next trip I’ll do the zip line I promise.

We also did a wine tour that wasn’t that great but hey it’s a wine tour. Drink wine and go it’s the flow. We know to do a different one next time.

The Shotover Jet. This is was terrified of but I did it and it was awesome. Not to mention our driver was pretty cute haha. It’s insanely cool and ours went a lot longer than it should have and I’m grateful. You come inside at reception and see all the famous people who have done it and it’s pretty cool. To get so close to the rocks you can almost touch them is adrenaline pumping.

I cannot say enough nice things about Queenstown. I absolutely adored it. I cannot wait to get back there.




Onto Dunedin! Here is where we are to see Ed Sheehan in concert. Get excited guys! We did not spend much time inFunwdin at all. I think just the one night if I remember correctly. Enough to see Ed so that’s what matters here.

We arrived, had some trouble with our rooms then pretty much got ready to go out.

The town centre was closed off into an outdoor mall area with games and stalls in celebration of Ed arriving. They even changed There town sign to commentate his visit. Most of the bars and retail outlets had Ed signs or vinyls in the window or an Ed inspired menu. It was so well done.

The concert was beautiful. Now that man is a true performer. So captivating and insanely funny. I don’t need to tell you how good his voice is live. It’s exactly like the records. There was also a full moon out the night of the concert so it was extra special. Then next day we decided to try and beat the crazy traffic by skipping Lake Tekapo and heading straight back to Christchurch so we didn’t miss any flights. More on that later.


Side note – the sheep are adorable.

So….boy oh boy. Best intentions and all to beat the traffic but what should have been a 4 hour drive to get from Dunedin to Christchurch took 8!!!!! That was a very long and slow day. You could have walked next to the car and you would’ve been quicker. It was cute trying to see people take shortcuts, just to meet up with them again later so really they accomplished nothing hahaha!

But off we went. We passed another pretty little French town Oamaru that we did consider staying at for a hot minute but just kept on going.


Then back to Christchurch, that night we dined at Bloody Mary’s again had some well deserved wine after that drive and it was phenomenal. We stayed for another day then we headed out the next day. Shootout to the best friend for doing an awesome job driving and keeping her cool the whole time haha.

I adored New Zealand’s South Island. There are soooo many lakes I can’t even tell you. Lake Hawea and Lake Wanaka when you drive past are STUNNING!!! Pictures below don’t do it justice. They are enormous.

I cannot wait for my next trip over there. Ai should experience a full on Winter, we went in Autum, but I truly think in Winter I I WILL freeze. I have quite a few New Xealand friends but they are all from the North which I’m told is vastly different to the South, so much so it looks like a different country.

I highly recommend if you you are thinking of going to New Zealand to just go for it. You will not regret it.



Until next time New Zealand.

Stay tuned for my next post about my trip to Greece in June.

Shameless (US Series) – My New Obsession

Starring: Emmy Rossum, William H. Macy, Justin Chatwin, Steve Howey, Shanola Hampton, Joan Cusack, Jeremy Allen White, Cameron Monaghan, Ethan Cutkosky, Emma Kenney, Laura Wiggins, Blake Alexander & Brennan Kane Johnson.

Created By: Paul Abbott.

Based on the 2004 English show Showtime has scored a hit on their hands with the US interpretation of this marvellous show.

The Gallaghers are a family of 6 kids an absentee mother and an alchoholic father Frank (Macy). They live in a very poor part of town and the kids are the ones to take care of the family (as dads to drunk to do anything besides drink), doing or stealing whatever they can to survive. Fiona (Rossum) the eldest works whatever job she can get to help support the kids, next in ine is Lip the eldest son who is the most academic of the bunch and to get cash does other kids SAT tests for them. Then we have Ian, the gay son who is having an affair with his married boss. The only in the family to know his is gay is his brother Lip. Then we have lovely little Debbie. All she wants is someone to take care of. Stealing a toddler is not a good idea Deb. Up next is Carl, a little pyshiopath in the making, cute kid but has got some issues. Lastly we have the gorgeous youngest sibling Liam. Liam is a mixed raced baby who somehow is biologically Frank’s child.

To help them out we have their neighbours from 2 doors down Kevin and Veronica. Kevin is a bartender and Veronica is a former nurse who makes sexy videos online for cash. They are a little dominatrix in the sack. But these two are the Gallaghers closet friends and they help out whenever they can. Side note: I absolutely LOVE Steve Howey.

Steve (Chatwin) is a rich kid that falls for Fiona. He is smart, sexy and a little dangerous. But as much trouble as the Gallaghers are in they don’t want handouts. This is a guy who Fiona doesn’t want to like but can’t seem to stop liking. Side Note: Chatwin & Rossum worked together on Drogonball: Evolution. He’s a new favourite of mine.

Sheila Jackson (Cusack) is the mother of Lip’s new girlfriend Karen (Wiggins). Sheila is agoraphobic and cannot leave her house. So when Frank needs a place to go he stays with Sheila and they start a very odd but sweet relationship.

I have only watched 7 episodes so far but I am totally hooked. It’s raw and real and it’s nice to see a family like this on television. It actually kind of reminds me of Party of Five. This could have totally been how they would have ended up if they lost it all. It’s also a little similar to Roseanne in the way that this is a real family struggling with real issues. It’s not always rosy and the will struggle.

Jane Levy from Suburgotory has a small role in Shameless as Ians’ beard/best friend.

Now I haven’t seen the British version of this show but I love the US version. Give this show a go. You will fall in love with this family.

Christmas Movies

Ever since I was a kid I have loved everything about Christmas and what it represents. From the traditional the birth of Christ to the more fantastical Saint Nick.
As I live in a very tropical and hot climate (our winter is a wet season), I have always been fascinated with a white Christmas. Therefore those types of Christmas movies interest me the most.
I absolutely LOVE Christmas movies. They’re joyous and sweet and fun.
Every Christmas my favourite Christmas movie would be on tv: Home Alone. So I made it into a tradition where I watch Home Alone 1 & 2 every Christmas. Without it I don’t feel like I’ve gotten into the Christmas spirit. I also must watch The Santa Clause every year also.
Here are just a few of my favourite Christmas movies of all time.

Home Alone

Honorable mentions: Rent, The Ice Harvest, Fred Clause, How The Grinch Stole Christmas, I’ll Be Home For Christmas, Jingle All The Way, Miracle On 34th Street, Look Who’s Talking Now.

I also love watching tv show Christmas episodes. I love every Christmas episode from That 70’s Show & Home Improvement and also ones from Friends. Plus many more.

You can probably tell I’m an unapologetic Macaulay Culkin & Tim Allen fan. I also absolutely love Rachel McAdams in The Family Stone.

Die Hard for those who don’t know is set at Christmas Time and has one of my favourite Christmas songs in the movie. Christmas in Hollis by Run DMC.

If you haven’t seen these movies, where the hell have you been living!!
Go rent or buy them now, go!!!

How could forget one of my favourites!

Enjoy! Merry Christmas. 😉
