Newcastle upon Tyne, Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear, UK
I am a multilingual travel, food, culture, tourism and lifestyle writer based in Newcastle, UK. My work has appeared in Oryx (Qatar Airways), Morning Calm (Korean Airlines), Baltic Outlook (Air Baltic), JetAway (Jet2), FHM Germany and other websites.
Originally from Athens, Greece, I specialise in Mediterranean destinations and esp. Greece. I love foreign cultures and faraway destinations, I have travelled to over 30 countries and speak French, Italian, Spanish and of course Greek. I am now learning German.
In the past, I worked as a TV researcher for Channel 4's A Place in the Sun (UK) but nowadays I write articles, feature stories, blog posts, people profiles and case studies about Greece (my home country) and the North East of England (where I live) for magazines, websites, businesses and brands. I generate content, as well as transcreate and localise copy for the Greek market.
With 2,000 islands scattered across the Greek archipelago, lovers of the sun and the deep blue sea will be spoilt for choice.
