Why Mom Was Right About Living by the Sea

Why Mom Was Right About Living by the Sea

My mom grew up in a Greek Island before she moved to the city. She, like everyone else who has lived near the water, claims that if you ever live by the sea, SHE (the sea) will become your greatest love. The one you can never overcome and the one you never want to overcome.

Only when I lived in Thassos island, I came to truly understand this. And I would now like to go deeper into the reasons why my mom’s theory is actually true.

Doing Bohemian interior design the Right Way

The term “Bohemians” came to describe the poor Parisian artists in the 19th Century, a group that shared common characteristics with the Gypsies (“bohemians” in French). These characteristics incorporated an independent and unconventional lifestyle, disregard of wealth, love for the arts and the pursuit of relationships. Living for today and not worrying about tomorrow was a core philosophy for bohemians.

The movement of the bohemians eventually influenced many aspects in society, predominantly fashion and design.

How Life in Thassos could Make Betty Draper a better mother

How Life in Thassos Could Make Betty Draper a Better Mother

Betty Draper has been depicted and analysed as being to mothering what cheez-whiz is to cooking. But we are not here to judge a mom. Besides, we actually really like Betty and we don’t think she is a bad mother or a bad person at all. She simply is very stressed and won’t take any crap by no one and no thing! And we believe that this can be fixed.

Where & what to eat in Thassos

Thassian cuisine is inspired from North Greece and is distinguished for the amazingly tasteful dishes. It includes plenty of fresh vegetables, local meat and of course fresh fish and seafood.

There are lots of famous traditional local delicacies, such as octopus balls, veggie-balls, stuffed vegetables, zucchini flowers, pepper-cavage, stuffed vine leafs and mackerel “fur”. Of course, there also plenty of delicious traditional jam sweets, such as the famous local walnut “saragli”.
