#GreekObsessionOfTheWeek Vol. 20⠀ ⠀ As #chocolatelovers , we couldn't keep it a secret from you: You have to try the #chocofreta waffer [in Greek: σοκοφρέτα #sokofreta ] by #ion , one of the most⠀ favourite and historic greek companies. Obviously, its name comes from ⠀ the word #chocolate , and it might be the most tasty choco-snack in the world (seriously!😋). Ιts first release in the Greek market was on March 10, 1976. Since then, a number of different tastes and additions have been released, including #darkchocolate , #whitechocolate , hazelnut, gluten-free and sugar-free versions!⠀ 📷: @iongiapanta ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #foodmakesmehappy #foodingreece #greekfoodculture #greekfood #foodpassion #foodies #culinarytravel #reasonstovisitgreece #amazinggreece#passionforgreece travelblogger #greektravelblogger #travelgreece #exploregreece #greektours #greektravelguide #localtours #localguides#travelwithfamily #besttravelagency #likealocal #experiencialtourism #greekdelicacies

#GreekObsessionOfTheWeek Vo. 19⠀ In #AncientGreece people used to wear leather striped shoes -the world famous #greeksandals ! Nowadays, we are still in love with them and we prefer to wear them instead of any other summer pair of shoes, enjoying the convenient, barefoot sense they offer, together with the stable contact with the ground. ⠀ ⠀ The last years, many #greekdesigners have created amazing Greek sandal collections, inspired by the ancient conventions and the #contemporaryfashion .⠀ An admirable example is the #kymasandals brand. What differentiates them is the blue sole, which symbolizes the #bluesea that connects all the Greek islands!⠀ ⠀ 👉We suggest you visiting their account @kymasandals ⠀ We are pretty sure you will find the sandal style that suits your needs!⠀ 📷: @kymasandals ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #greektours #greektravelguide #localtours #localguides #travelwithfamily #travelexperiences #besttravelagency #likealocal #experiencialtourism #greece_countryside #greekislands #greece_is_awesome #europetravel#passionforgreece #wanderlustbeautifulgreece #discovergreece #wheretonext #greekbrands #greekinnovation #greekentrepreneurs #handmadesandals

#GreekObsessionOfTheWeek Vol.17⠀ For the lovers of creative writing, this Monday's post is dedicated to #DionysiosSolomos , the national poet of Greece! He is the writer of the #GreekNationalAnthem , which consists of the two first verses of his poem titled 'Hymn to Liberty'. ⠀ ⠀ His life was connected to #Corfu , as he settled in some years before the end οf the Greek War of Independence, to find serenity and focus on his poetry. Today, the building where he spent the last years of his life is the 'Museum of Dionysios Solomos in Corfu'.⠀ ⠀ It would be a great chance to visit it, if you travel to Corfu. ⠀ >> Link in bio for all the Greeking.me tours in this amazing island!⠀ 📷: Museum of Dionysios Solomos in Corfu⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #traveldrops #greece_is_awesome #europetravel #reasonstovisitgreece #amazinggreece #passionforgreece #wanderlustbeautifulgreece #discovergreece #wheretonext #greektravelblogger #travelgreece #exploregreece #travelalot #greeceonlens #secretgreece #travelagency #travelwithfamily #traveladdiction#greekhistory #greek_islands #likealocal #likealocalexperience #greekmuseums #greekart #greekpoetry #greekingme
