I’m an expat and I love expat life. I’m a wife and a very happy one. Mainly focused on Greece and the islands we are discovering the real Greece in every season. Getting to know the locals and learn how to live life in a simpler healthier way with food in season produced locally. A combination of recipes and reviews, travel advice, personal blog and Greek island lifestyle.
One of the larger festivals on the island and happening outside the tourist season, the orange festival is a traditional local festival. Free to enter, go with a group of friends and enjoy the atmosphere. Always popular with locals and expats coming from all over the island to help celebrate the orange harvest.
