Have you thought of a vacation in Greece in 2015? How about a unique Greek holiday where you connect with local travel bloggers and expats who actually live there, and who promise an authentic and fresh experience. Wouldn’t it be fun to discover local restaurants, boutique hotels, and other gems known by those who live there?
If you’re like me, and want an authentic taste of Greece, let me introduce you to the founders of Travel Bloggers Greece and my travel blogger friend Rebecca Hall who is also a contributing member of Travel Bloggers Greece.
I met Rebecca Hall online, several years ago. At the time, I was curious about her life as a British expat living in Greece, so I asked her to contribute her own “Gutsy” story which you will find in our first “My Gutsy Story®” Anthology.
I’m visiting Greece for the first time in April, and Rebecca (or Beccy) as I like to call her, has been super helpful, with fabulous suggestions on discovering the hidden gems of Greece. She suggested an island close to Athens, where the locals go. (Please follow my blog in April, as I post photos and more about my 4-day trip to Greece.) You can follow her blog, and Facebook page, to learn more about Greece.
I’ve interviewed Beccy a couple of times on Google Hangouts. (see our recent interview below.)
Rebecca Hall is a travel blogger and writes Life Beyond Borders, a leading destination resource for alternative travel, author and film director interviews and expat stories as well as living abroad expert – especially in the country of Greece. Rebecca Hall has been featured in the Huffington Post Travel section, published in the Daily Telegraph Travel section, writing for airline magazines and a contributing author to the Rough Guide Travel Guidebook series (Greece & the Greek Islands) – you can also find Bex here:
While in Greece, I shall also meet Marissa Tejada and Elena Sergeeva, the founders of Travel Bloggers Greece, and hope to arrange an interview with them. (Please follow my travels in Greece, April 14-18)
- So what is “Travel Bloggers Greece,” (TBG) and what can they do for people who are interested in Greece?
“Travel Bloggers Greece is the first blogger networking group established in Greece. Their members are Greeks and expats who live in Greece and cover Greece as a travel destination in various languages. They are the only network that abides by ethical and professional standards. Encouraging positive cooperation, education and collaboration among their diverse membership, TBG works with Greece-based businesses to help promote authentic travel and increased awareness of Greek travel destinations.”
