Hello! I was educated and brought up in Cape Town, South Africa. When I came to Greece for a visit we decided to stay with my family. The house in Ikaria in the earlier days was used as a customs house, it was then brought by my grandparents and in the later years was restored and renovated by us with love and care. The highlight of the house is that its built on a rock facing the sea and therefore has good energy and light and wake up hearing the sound of the sea. I enjoy swimming, sunbathe and love to buy fresh fish to cook. Its a get-away for me, since city life is hectic. I also love to travel abroad and experience the lifestyle of other countries. My aim is to build healthy relationships with my hosts since its important that they feel comfortable and happy during their stay. My moto in life is simple and always remind myself: Keep Walking & Keep Smiling!
