Tom Hanks’ Family Offered Greek Citizenship for Athens Fire Donation

(ATHENS, Greece) — Greece’s government is extending its offer of citizenship to Tom Hanks to his wife and their two children, in recognition of the family’s help in assisting victims of a deadly wildfire near Athens in 2018.

Travel On A Budget Of Under $30/ Day

To travel the world is one of the most important decisions we make here on earth. Experiencing different parts of the planet is a chance to learn about cultures different than our own, gain a stronger grasp on our world history, share a meal and a conversation with a person who has a totally different world view than your own. It’s an opportunity to open you mind, open your heart, and open your eyes to gain a grander perspective. Anthony Bourdain said it best— “Travel changes you. As you move t...

These Instagrammers show the REAL Berlin

We all know the glossy Instagram accounts that almost make you think Berlin is a permanently sunny resort where all you see are fit yogis running around with their cute puppies and the occasional elderly couple sitting on a bench in Tiergarten. Well, one look out of the window will suffice to realize that the reality is not all that ideal. But we love that about Berlin – its unpredictable weather, extraordinary characters, and the fact that some corners can get a bit rough. We found three Instag...

The best things to do in Crete

Days enjoying cerulean blue waters and secluded beach coves, followed by meals made from gorgeous produce and fresh seafood, sound like the dream getaway — albeit a dream that most of the world shares when it comes to Greece. With a rise in popularity, the port areas of Greece’s most popular islands have become overrun with souvenir shops and lackluster restaurants. Thankfully, Crete remains one of the country’s lesser-known spots. From mom-and-pop food spots to a bustling capital city and re...

16 views to inspire travel

P aris, London, Barcelona, San Francisco — most of us are familiar with what these cities and their most famous monuments “look like.” In fact, with the internet nearly fused to our fingertips, it’s tempting to assume we know all the world’s places and panoramas. But what does Earth look like from the top of Table Mountain in Cape Town? From the bright-as-day nighttime streets of Tokyo? From a patch of grass near a herd of zebras outside of Nairobi? There’s always more of the world to explore,...

I've spent 6 months traveling the world on business, and I've found the perfect phone hack to save time, money, and aggravation

Business travel means traveling to foreign countries that work far different from the US. Having cheap internet access can make a lot of things, from navigating a new city to sending emails, a lot less stressful. Using foreign SIM cards is the cheapest and most hassle-free solution. In order to use a foreign SIM card in your phone, you'll need to get your phone "unlocked" by your mobile carrier. Make sure to call ahead as sometimes it can take a few weeks for the request to go through. I...

PHOTO: Volcano Caldera in Santorini, Greece, A Study in Blue and White

The volcano caldera in Santorini is a study in blue, and white, with the ominous black volcano cone squatting in the center of the lagoon. Since the beginning of the Christian Era, the volcano has had eight eruption episodes, in 46-47, 726, 1570-1573, 1707-1711, 1866-1870, 1925-1928, 1939-1941, and 1950. Though the average number of years between eruptions is 272, there is an alarming trend that points to an acceleration of eruptions. The interval between the first and second events was 679...

PHOTO: The Beautiful Cave Architecture of Oia, Santorini

This is the iconic photo that every visitor to Santorini wants to capture, the blue domes and whitewashed houses in the village of Oia, Santorini. While I found the scenery visually captivating, I was more curious about the history of the cave architecture of Santorini – how it came about and why it evolved in the way it did. Before the days when tourism became the economic mainstay on the island, Santorini residents predominantly earned a living through fishing, winemaking, and seafaring t...

PHOTO: Little Venice in Mykonos Town, on the Greek island of Mykonos

The cute neighborhood known as Little Venice in Mykonos Town is named for its unique houses, cafes, and shops, many of which jut out over the Aegean Sea. In centuries past, when seafaring was a major industry in the area, sea captains built grand mansions along this shoreline. Later, it was a favorite haunt of writers and artists, many of whom featured the colorful setting in their paintings and books. In recent times Little Venice has become mainly a shopping district, with dozens of desig...

PHOTO: The Windmills of Kato Mili on the Greek Island of Mykonos

I was more than a little puzzled when I first saw the Windmills of Kato Mili on the Greek island of Mykonos. This tiny speck of granite in the far eastern Mediterranean seemed an unlikely place to find windmills. Eager to know more, I climbed the low hill from the neighborhood of Little Venice to where five historic mills stood white against a robin’s egg blue sky. Although their heavy cotton sails have been removed, the structures are otherwise in excellent condition, right down to their c...

PHOTO: Ruins of the Temple of Zeus in Ancient Olympia, Greece

Today the Temple of Zeus stands in ruins, its 34 massive columns toppled and scattered in pieces around the Sanctuary of Ancient Olympia. But in 457 B.C., it was one the ancient world’s great structures. Built to honor the Greek god Zeus, the temple stood 68 feet high and was crowned with sculpted front and rear pediments. The eastern pediment depicted the chariot race between Pelops and Oenomaus while the Western pediment memorialized the battle of Centaurs and Lapiths, with the god Apollo...

The itinerary for my Greek tour with Collette included a day in Olympia Greece, site of the first Olympic Games in 776 B.C. I thoroughly enjoyed my tour of the original race track and the ruins of the magnificent temples and shrines that once surrounded the sports facilities (read more about the earliest Olympics and see more photos in this article). But it was the Archeological Museum in Olympia Greece that left me at a loss for words. In a dedicated room rear the rear of the museum,... Th...
