Promoting Beautiful Greece: World Tourism Day 2013 Greek Photo Competition Now Ending 23rd November 2013

Stunning, superb, beautiful Greece...
Our collage of the wonderful photographs received this year

Over 200 absolutely stunning photos of Greece were entered and of course we put them to music, just as we did last year - the only difference is that this year we couldn't decide so we created two versions which are equally beautiful.

The first version is set to Con te Partiro/ Pote Xana by our Global Greek of the Year 2012 Mario Frangoulis singing with Yiorgos Dalaras

The second version is set to the set to the haunting and nostalgic melody of Tzivaeri by Eleftheria Arvanitaki - a beautiful traditional song which talks about nostos and those who left Greece for a better life in the 'ksenitia' - the foreign land ..

We've posted all the photos in the album World Tourism Day 2013 Greek Photo Competition, so please click here and vote with a 'like' for the one(s)you like.

The picture with the greatest number of likes wins a very 'Greek' prize and he/she is not the only one to win... so please get liking!

We think these stunning photos deserve your vote!

Although due to close on 17th November, we have extended the voting period so that more people can see these magnificent photos and vote! There are so many amazing photos that deserve more than the 1, 2, 3 or 4 votes that they have received so far!
Voting will now end on Saturday 23rd November, 2013.

Good luck to all ! 
Καλή Επιτυχία σε όλους!

Photo of the Day: Kalo Mina with Sunshine, Blue Skies and 27C in Greece, Beautiful Greece!

The weather forecast says...
 Sunshine, Blue skies and 27 C
It's the 1st of November today, and in Greece the sun is shining, the sky is blue and we're still wearing our summer clothes. 
While much of Europe has been plagued by bad weather and low temperatures, in Greece we are having record sunshine and good weather.
In Attica especially, we haven't had to worry about heating bills since April....
Sure is! 
Greece, beautiful Greece!

The sea is warm and people are still swimming, although many beach side shops have boarded up for the 'winter' so it is hard to get anything more than a frappe... 

  This was our last Frappe at the beach ...

but there are one or two tavernas open throughout the year so we had to have lunch by the sea after our last swim for 2013!
Kalo Mina... 
Xronia Polla 
to all those celebrating namedays today,  ton Aghion Anargyron.
Anargyros is the singular of anargyroi and in the Orthodox Church refers to one of thirteen saints who were mainly physicians and were said to have assisted the suffering and the needy without accepting payment...
(An = without, Argyros = silver
, Anargyros = without silver)
