Greece Travel Secrets

plan your Greek holiday here

Greece Travel Secrets is a website committed to ensuring you get the most out of your visit to Greece and the Greek islands

Yassas and hello!

I’m Sandy Papas, a Gen-X writer, blogger, designer, wife and mother of 3 based in Brisbane, Australia.

I spent over 30 years working in the corporate world in leadership and Project Management positions across Recruitment, HR, Banking and Construction. I’m a qualified Interior Designer, Lean Specialist and Agile coach which means I specialise in solving problems – creatively!

Most importantly I’m an avid traveller and Grecophile and in fact I’m married to a Greek. We visit Greece each year and explore as much of the country as we can, as well as returning to old favourites. I love to cook ( and eat) Greek food and am a huge advocate of the wine, the way of life and the ‘Filotimo’, which loosely translates to love of honour ( and other virtues).

Whilst Greece and Australia are my first loves I’ve travelled to over 50 countries. You can read more about them at my original travel site Tray Tables Away.
