Hello everyone and welcome to the largest oline community about Greece and the Greek Islands!
This topic is for new comers who want to introduce themselves to our forum and let us know what they want from their trip to Greece or what help they might need help with!
IF YOU WANT TO ASK SPECIFICALLY FOR YOUR TRIP GO TO THE HOMEPAGE AND CLICK ON THE TOP RIGHT “+New Topic” (don’t worry too much about Categorization…)
This is me in Pyrgos village (Santorini):
As you may have read from my “Welcome Message” I am Pavlos, the person behind this online forum.
I am greek and I grew up in Athens, Greece.
I have lived in Santorini for quite some time working mainly in the construction sector where I helped build/renovate some of these magnificent Santorini hotels you see all over instagram.
I have spent lots of my summers as a kid in Crete and I have then travelled pretty much everywhere in Greece and in almost all greek islands.
I love Greece, its culture and its food but I have also travelled across the world quite a lot. I wish I could travel more though!
I am now based somewhere between Athens and London,UK.
Back in 2013, I started my travel blog SantoriniSecrets.com which has then attracted millions of visitors from all over the world.
I wasn’t expecting that to be honest!
I thought I was alone in this but I was wrong!
I have also set up a beautiful instagram account @santorini.secrets to share the beauties of this island but I am also sharing pics from Mykonos and Crete on my 2 other instagram accounts.
Now, Santorinisecrets.com has tips for Crete and Mykonos as well! (Soon for Athens and Greece in general!)
Back in 2017, I decided it was about time to build a community of people who are looking to visit Santorini or Greece and at that time a Facebook Group seemed like the best option.
It quickly became one of the most go-to Facebook Groups for information regarding Santorini and Greece.
I have to say though, it never really really felt like a real community and after all… it’s Facebook!
So, I have decided to set this private online forum outside of Facebook in order to make things easier for people looking for information and for people who love Greece and any particular greek island.
At the moment we have dedicated categories about:
but we also have a generic “Greece-other destinations” category for any other destination you are looking to visit (I have lots of beautiful destinations in Greece to share in here that you may have never heard of!)
So… that’s me!
Feel free to share your stories, pictures or even videos from your trip to Greece or just ask anything you would like to (without worrying too much about categories and stuff…)
If you have difficulties on setting up your account on this forum ar how you can create a new topic, upload photos etc you can read the very helpful FAQ section but it should be very straight forward.
Or… just say hello!
