My name is Despina and I have two lovely little girls. The moment we arrive from hectic Athens, we put on our wellies and head straight for the orange grove to dig and explore.
This month we harvested our cauliflowers and picked our tangerines fresh off the tree. One afternoon, we took our bikes and visited the old byzantine church of St. John and ended at sthe small village of Mystras, under the castle and it's ruins. Obviously had a break for warm mountain tea and then hurried home to put potatoes in the fireplace for dinner and enjoy a warm hearth.
Evening book sessions start early and end usually asleep on the couch.
Fresh start in the morning to pack our pick-nicks and go mushroom hunting, for it is the season.
I love travel books, one of my favorite authors is Jan Morris and her books on Venice and Trieste.Travelling light is my motto since when you take less you bring back more in every sense of the word. I also love talking about places, people, cultures and of course food. Did I mention, I make the best ratatouille ever? :)
