Thank you friends, followers and my big Greek family without you, the place in the finals of Apollos contest for travel bloggers, would not be possible. The final vote was really exiting until the last minutes! The winner of the contest is the blog New York – My Bite of the Big Apple congrats Anna!
So here I am in this photo captured by my daughter Kyriaki when we went to a photo trip to Meteora in the region of Thessaly. You will find my photos of this divine place here. I love to explore new places. My first trip abroad I already did as one year old, when I accompanied my father and aunt to Stockholm in the 60’s. Since my first trip by train to Stockholm, there were many trips and stays in Greece during my childhood. When I went to high school I dreamed of traveling to other countries. But in recent years, I dream of of places in Greece that I have not been to.
Living today in Stockholm with my hubby. My girls are the young ladies who encouraged me to develop the blog and I am now looking forward to write more stories as I want to inspire you to dream about places you have not been to in Greece. I hope to snap new photos real soon and publish them here together with my stories and traveltips.

I love to photograph when I travel and explore new places or destinations. And of course I want to take some great photos. I’ve had my current camera for more than a year and it’s not always easy to learn all the amazing features that are in it. I practice as often as I can and not only when I’m on holiday in Greece. Often my composition in the image is perfect, but the colors in the picture are not always as expected. A lot of hours of practice and many photos later provide experiences, so here are my tips for beginners.
My best non-technical tips for beginners:
The light is alfa and the omega as the greeks says, and makes the difference between a good photo and the best photo. The image tends to get sharp shadows and shapes when you take it in the middle of the day, specially during the summer. The best light is available in the morning or in the afternoon, the “golden hour” is often the hour before the sunset.
But often when we travel, we do not have the luxury to be in place early or late in the day. I usually look for a shadow to stand in and shoot from that spot, it gives my photos a softer impression and bring some more colours in my picture.
Another tip is to shoot the image from several directions. For example, on a street, I shoot the picture in two different directions. Sometimes the difference is seen immediately in the camera or mobile phone and sometimes you see it when you export the picture to your computer.
