I’m always surprised by who manages to find this blog. Like Grazia magazine, for instance.
Back in June, when I was busy canceling my trip to Greece and trying to keep my condo from being sold right out from under me, I got a really nice e-mail from a journalist at Grazia (German version) saying she wanted to do a story on the blog, and asking if I wouldn’t mind answering some questions.
The questions were about Greece — Could I recommend five islands? What makes the Greek islands special? What constitutes the perfect island for me? What interesting experiences have I had in my island search? — and since talking about Greece is one of my favorite things to do, I said ναι, bien sûr, and plunged right in.
The story turned out to be 3 pages (see photo above) and they used my Symi boat tour photo for the intro page.
Is this the beginning of days spent waxing poetic on the motivations of Alexander and where to find the best souvlaki in the plaka?
Alas, probably not, but it was a lot of fun just the same, and it got my mind focused back to where it should be…
