What could be as rewarding as fulfilling your creative dream? For me, it has been helping others fulfill theirs!
Today is a very special day for published writer Paula Hagiefremidis, who has combined her love for words, food and travel to bring you the Mediterranean Wanderer.
This gorgeous Australian girl with passion bubbling in her veins has created Sensory Retreats on the islands of Lemnos and Ikaria for the traveler looking for a deeper, local experience. Paula dialed into her Greek DNA, the experiences she has lived visiting this part of the world since she was a child, her love for food and authenticity, to show you a corner of the Mediterranean through her eyes.
Yes, dear tired and stressed city folk she will walk you through the fields of Lemnos and Ikaria, take you to secluded beaches with only a feast Paula could prepare, have you cooking hand-made Flomaria (Greek pasta) in the homes of the locals, introduce you to local artisans still preparing food in the traditional way, hiking to a secluded church for a morning meditation, horse-riding in the hills and sleeping in beautiful accommodation that you never want to leave.
She will help you wash away the city, experience nourishment, creativity, immersion and the chance to explore like a local. Wandering off the beaten track, visiting places on the islands of her family and some of her most treasured places, known only to a fortunate few. She will send you back to the city inspired, refreshed and in love with her world.
And this girl knows her stuff, she has been leading Maeve O’Meara’s Food Safari tours in Melbourne for the past couple of years, treating Australians to her beautiful sense of humour, warmth, generosity and knowledge of food. Paula also puts her food knowledge and writing skills together for Broadsheet and Nourish magazine.
Hop on over to her the MEDITERRANEAN WANDERER and smell the sage!
