Athens: Meze and Mythology

Despite the economical problems Greece has encountered during last 6 years, right now this city appears to be the next big thing in European capitals. It is a fusion of old and new, ancient and contemporary; you have the Acropolis and you have grungy Monastiraki, Parthenon and a vast variety of urban-chick bars and cafes. You get to walk through Ancient Agora the very birthplace of democracy and later have a blast in one of Europe’s most happening nightlife scenes. There are museums, galleries, fancy restaurants, Mediterranean light and there is Piraeus, the port to the famous, dreamy, Greek islands. Despite of what was on the news a few years ago you will have no problem with safety whatsoever if you’d just be cautious when you enter a really crowded metro train.

Crazy Mykonos boat plane
Yes, there are some of the most astonishing beaches located on this island. Yes, one can have some privacy here, even during high season. And yes, services provided are top class. But let’s be honest. None of the above is the main reason for visiting this famous part of Greece. Number one reason to set foot in this Cycladic gem is that there is a heavy, wild, pounding, everlasting party going on here. In super clubs, beach bars, small cozy pubs, music and fun never stops. Locals say that it’s the wind; it drives people crazy. We say it’s just Mykonos.
Boat tickets start at 20 € Plane tickets start at 40 €. Accommodation at 20 €
Chef’s tip:
• Dear party animals, vitamins and minerals will be of use.

The Crete: A country within a country boatplane
Comparing to every other Greek island, Crete is vast, with its southern part being a long line of dreamy beaches of all kinds; pebbled, pink sanded, golden or rocky ones, unspoiled and isolated or crowded, your pick. But there is more to it. There are mountains with picturesque small villages and breathtaking views for hikers, a gorge and various rough routs for thrill seekers, romantic little restaurants facing iconic harbors for lovers, ancient palaces, Zeus cave and Venetian buildings for culture hunters and a famous cuisine to go with it all. And on top, there are the proud and tough yet gentle Cretans themselves, “who unfortunately [made] more history than they can consume locally” (Saki).
Boat tickets start at 20 € Plane tickets start at 40 €. Accommodation at 15 €
Chef’s tips
• You are going to need at least ten days to taste the true umami of this land. A car rental would really help.
• Never say no to a Cretan offering you raki (similar to schnapps) or meze. It’s impolite to the Cretan and such a pity for you not to taste the treat.
