What did you do with your quieter-than-usual summer?
This summer was of course very quite as none of my touring groups were able to travel. Whilst I spent most of my time at home in Athens I did manage to visit friends and the nearby beach of Shinias. I also went to my favourite place, old Panteliemon at the slopes of Mount Olympus not far from the beach of Panteleimonas where we have our summer house. My son Savvas lives on the island of Tinos, so I spent some time visiting him too.
What do you do when you’re not organising concerts for us?
I’m the manager of our family business, where I also work with incoming tourists.
What is one thing you never travel without?
I always take a good book with me, my phone and my iPad.
Where’s your favourite destination?
How can I choose just one?! In Montenegro, it’s Kotor, Bosnia – Trebinje, Croatia – Zadar and Dubrovnik, Slovenia -Ljubljana. I like them all equally!
What’s your favourite thing to eat on tour?
I always make sure I eat a good breakfast to set me up for the day ahead!
What’s your best travel advice?
Always smile and solve any problems that might occur with patience
What’s your favourite thing about working for Specialised Travel?
I love meeting so many fabulous and enthusiastic music lovers from different countries. As well as enjoying their singing and playing, I love getting to know them and to learn all about the culture of their country too.
