About me and my blog

I love travelling to Greece, and I also enjoy sharing stories and photos of my personal experiences visiting this beautiful and charming Mediterranean country. I have posted albums with more than 30,000 photographs of Greece in the mygreecetravelblog photostream on Flickr.com, and I am an active contributor to the Greece travel forum on TripAdvisor.com, where I’m a Destination Expert for Mykonos.

I created this blog as a hobby project to share my tremendous passion and enthusiasm for Greece. The blog content features trip reports and photos from my many holidays in Greece, as well as photos, videos and information about some of the myriad places I haven’t yet been to but would love to visit if I get the chance someday. I hope my blog can encourage and inspire others to discover this amazing and enchanting destination, which offers a wealth of attractions  and activities for people of all ages and backgrounds.

Besides regularly publishing pictures and articles on this blog, I post and share a wide variety of content on the My Greece Travel Blog Facebook page, which anyone can view even if they don’t have Facebook accounts. The news feed on my Facebook page includes photos of scenic places all over Greece, as well as links to  travel-related news and events and links to helpful trip planning sources. I share material on the Facebook page practically every day, so there’s always something new and interesting to see.

Please note that I am not a travel agent or travel consultant, and do not offer personal travel planning services either for free or for compensation. If you need assistance planning a trip to Greece, please contact a travel agent or consider posting questions in the travel forums on various online travel websites, including TripAdvisor.com.

As a personal policy, I do not publish advertiser-sponsored articles or advertising text links either for free or for payment, and I will reject any such requests to publish promotional material.

Writers and/or photographers interested in submitting a guest post, photos or videos about a particular destination in Greece, or general travel to the country, are invited to contact me with their article proposals.  

Please note that the majority of photos published on my blog were shot either by me or my partner. Any photos that I obtained from another source will be identified with credit information in the picture caption. If one of your images has been incorrectly credited, please notify me so I can correct the caption promptly.

  16. Hi Don,
    My friends and I recently got back from our trip to Greece. We loved it, we used your site to help plan our itinerary. Your site was a big help. I love to make travel videos of my trips so i wanted to share our Greece one with you 🙂 https://vimeo.com/167695160

  17. Hello, this blog looks great! My finance and I want to go to the Cyclades for our honeymoon in early June but have no idea which islands to choose. We would like to go to two and do some sailing in the middle. Do you have any posts that might help me decide? We obviously want something romantic but not too touristy. If you have done any sailing I’d love to read a post on that too!

  18. I just landed to your blog. I m Greek and I can almost say the same about you my friend! U are almost Greek in the heart and soul! I m new to blogging and I like your blog very much! For sure I will read it carefully! Have fun and maybe some day I will meet you in Mykonos!

  19. Great blog Don, congrats! I was looking for info about Greek Island Hopping and I stumbled upon your site. Lucky me! I’ll be following from now on 🙂

    The Greek islands are a bliss… I wish I’ll be able to see them all!!!
    Your tips gave me lots of ideas for this summer’s vacation, thank you!

    I love your pictures by the way. What a remarkable collection you got there on Flickr <3 Keep up the good work, safe travels!

  20. Fabulous photographs and very good writing!
