Hello welcome to my Blog

Mezze is widely served in the Greek and Middle eastern world. An assortment of little dishes and tasters which accompany a nice ouzo or a glass of wine. So when you read mezze moments you will have tasty snippets of life as I live it, India for four years and now Brisbane Australia, all served up with some Greek fervour and passion.

Heading to Irakleia - accompanied by dolphins and a turtle

The sailing was great today but what was even more fabulous was finding a solitary dolphin along the way and then a pod of another four. They swam under the keel of the boat so close to the surface we could see every scratch mark on their backs, they responded to our enthusiastic calls, rolled over, looked up at us and you could swear they were smiling as much as we were grinning. They did rolls and flips, they jumped and splashed and when they had had enough they swam out and looked for new playmates. It was spectacular and fun and made doubly exciting when just a little way on we met a friendly turtle who was curious enough to stay afloat and swim with the boys. 


Irakleia is a small island which has a sign - "If you come to Irakeleia no one will find you." It is so quiet, so out of the way but picturesque. Plenty of prickly pears and bougenvilleas and a care and attention to detail which made a every turn in the village a snapshot of some note.

Our swim this pm a cove of tranquility and beauty. Our next stop is Ano Koufonissi.
