Kalimera or Kalispera!
My name is Alexandra. Alexandra Maria to be exact.
I love Greece and the Greek islands not only for their breathtaking natural beauty. I love also Greek culture, especially music - for example the songs from the islands called Nisiotika. I love Greek musicians and composers such as Konitopoulou, Parios, Eirini Chalkou, Theodorakis, Loizos, Vangelis... And last but not least I love the Greek dances such as Ikariotikos, Tsifteteli, Rebetiko...
I love the Greeks and their way of life, their proud and strong character, and their exceptional friendliness and hospitality.
A few yeras ago I started to learn the Greek language and I am still studying very hard. :) I adore the small villages, where the people do not speak foreign languages - that is why I want to speak Greek as well as I can.
This year I hope to explore again one of the stunning Greek islands and take some photographs there.
I love looking at the photographs on Greeka, they are simply beautiful. One can find plenty of excellent photographers here.
I love to read articles on the Greek islands on Greeka, too. It helps me to know Greece much better and to decide where to go.
I am really happy to be a member of this community created by wonderful people, foreigners and Greeks.
I love Greek cuisine, wine and sweets.
I cannot live without Greek feta and olive oil from Crete. :)
I am in love with Greek gardens full of flowers and fruits.
I love travelling, reading, walking, dancing Greek dances...I admire the Greek history, Alexander the Great, Perikles...and the Greek philosophy, of course. And architecture. And language. A Greek sentence sounds like a poem.
When I come back from Greece, I start missing the blue sea (THALASSA), the blue sky,...blue windows, doors, roofs...because there is a specific shade of blue that I love. A blue so bright that makes all your troubles go away: GREEK BLUE.
(Look at the Greek flag!)
