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 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've never looked back! Fast track to today, I'm married to Manthos, (whom I met two years after I arrived in Crete, I'm not a Shirley Valentine!), and we're blessed with twin daughters Stephanie and Marianna. If you enjoy classical piano and/ or science you may like to see more about them here.  During my many years on Crete, I've enjoyed being an Overseas travel manager, a tour organiser, property rental owner, event organiser and artistic manager, and more.  I'm a qualified Interior designer, and enjoy creating stylish living spaces for guests, and also advise other rental property owners and hoteliers. In my spare time I exercise... I exercise a lot, especially during the summer months when I can be found doing yoga on the beach, exploring local villages and bike riding along the coastline.  You're welcome to join me! Our 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 where you are. Take care,Julie. x
