Articles about Greece
Just click on the links above or below to follow your interest
Some years ago when I started coming to Greece I found myself exploring parts of this wonderful country that are somewhat off the tourist map. Yes I enjoy the islands and mainland tourist 'honeypots', such as Halkidiki, but when the lure of summer beaches wanes then my interests lie in the history, the culture, and above all the people of this outgoing, friendly, and much-maligned land.
I have written Short Stories, a few Poems, and these Articles about Greece. The boundary between the Articles and the Short Stories is somewhat blurred and artificial, so do please look at the Short Stories as well!
