Zakynthos or Zante is a Greek island in the Ionian Sea and a popular summer resort. In this beautiful island lives one of my favourite artists Natassa Klavdianou. Natassa is a local with a true head for art complete with pebbles, wood and other materials nature offers to her inspiration. All beauties she makes with her hands are presented in her gallery in Zakynthos named Sea and Fantasy. She is also a photographer of really aesthetic quality pictures. In this post I am delighted to present some of her astonishing photos.

In 2015 Jamie Oliver visited Ikaria, also spelled Icaria, a Greek island in the Aegean Sea. That visit was part of his research into the important role of the food people eat in longevity. The residents of the island are known for their longevity and their nutritional habits.
During his visit he tasted local cuisine and specialities such as fried mullet, herb pie, pumpkin pie and broad beans with fennel.
According to an Ancient Greek myth, the gods and goddesses had their sandals made on the beautiful island of Crete by a gifted sandal maker who enriched each pair with magical powers. Famous for having made the flying sandals for Hermes, the sandal maker also embellished them with his personal signature… a “golden wing” buckle.
