•••
  While I enjoy a sepia-toned beach or clinking cocktails gif as much as the next person, sometimes I can’t help but feel a little jaded by The Gram. It’s beautiful - really it is - a lot of it anyway. But, as I was supposed was unavoidable, Instagram has become somewhat of an enemy to itself. We see the sick pic, we want to go, we get there are [...]

Drink extra vitamin C tablets. Eats lots of fruit and vegetables. Exercise. Stay connected with people, even virtually.

The Best Wanderlust Inspiring Shows on Netflix right now

For me, the best way of getting inspired is by visuals, nothing captivates me more than a few cinematic scenes that are paired with equally emotional music, especially when it comes to travel.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with the technical term “poodle girl,” it was the 8-year-old saying for a wannabe ‘60s sock hop gal, complete with a baby pink, flouncy skirt adorned with… you gu[...]

You’re probably thinking ‘what is Eleni on about?’ So many guides tell us to find the local spots and offer insider knowledge as that’s where the real magic is.
