Hello, I'm Julie! I was born and grew up in the Cotswolds in England. Most of my younger years I spent in the countryside on the back of 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 if I had gone to university I would be a Sports teacher or a vet by now, but that wasn't to happen. When I was 20, after completing an HND in Health and Nutrition I decided to turn my life around, resigned from my clerical position at Cheltenham Government Communications Headquarters in Cheltenham England, bought a second-hand backpack from the local newspaper, and a one-way bus ticket on the Magic Bus to Greece. I never looked back! Fast track to today, I'm married to Manthos (whom I met two years after I arrived in Crete, No,I'm not a Shirley Valentine!), We are blessed with incredible twin daughters, Stephanie and Marianna. If you enjoy classical music and science you may like to learn about them here.  During my many years  living and working on Crete, I've enjoyed being an Overseas Travel Manager, a tour organiser, a property rental owner,an Event organiser and an Artistic Manager.  I love beautiful things and am a qualified Interior designer, creating stylish living spaces for our guests as well as other rental owners and hotels. In my spare time I exercise. I exercise a lot!, especially during the summer months when I can be found with doing yoga down at the beach, exploring local villages or bike riding along the coastline with guests.  You're welcome to join me! My Facebook page is the place where I share my thoughts and ideas about nature, lifestyle, and Crete, touching upon everything from its people and traditions to the island's products and hidden treasures.  I hope that my posts will inspire you and that they will give you that incredible 'Cretan' feeling wherever you are,  Julie x
