JULIES CRETE-THE ART OF LIVING ON AN ISLAND
Hello, I'm Julie! I was born and grew up in the Cotswolds, England. Most of my younger years I spent in the countryside on a pony. I competed in show jumping contests (breaking my nose a few times!) and later learned how to play badminton well enough to represent my county. I guess that if I had gone to university I would be a P.E teacher or a vet now, but that wasn't to happen... When I was 21, after completing a HND in Health and Nutrition I decided to turn my life around. I resigned from my clerical job at Cheltenham GCHQ, purchased a second-hand backpack for five pounds from the local newspaper, and a one-way bus ticket on the Magic Bus to Greece (traveling alone), and never looked back. Fast track to today, I'm married Manthos, (who I met two years later,I'm not a Shirley Valentine) and we're blessed with twin daughters, Stephanie and Marianna. If you enjoy classical music or science you may like to see more about them here. We live near to our rental properties, in a house that we built, on the mountainside overlooking the Aegean Sea, which we with our dog Stewart, and Harry our handsome tom! All these on the island I've gained a great deal of experience in tourism as an overseas manager, a tour organise, and a property rental owner. During our children's school years I was actively involved in event and artist management which lead to Manthos and I founding Aegean Arts Talent Charity international Festival which you may be interested to see more about here.
As well as a holiday consultant I'm a qualified Interior designer and I like to create stylish living spaces for our guests. I also love to exercise... I exercise a lot, especially during the summer months when I enjoy exploring local villages and bike riding along the coastline with my family and our guests. You're welcome to join us!
Julies Crete, Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Juliescrete), is the place where I share my thoughts, ideas about nature, lifestyle, and my love of Crete, touching upon everything from its people and traditions to island products and it's hidden treasures. I hope that my posts will inspire you to visit the island and will give you that incredible 'Cretan' feeling wherever you are right now.
