Welcome to sweet-streets blog and this is how it all began !!
Hi There! I am Sandra, a British expat Lady at heart with a passion to discover the Greek philosophy to life.
Welcome to my travel & lifestyle blog!I’m Sandra, a Athens based people, places, travel and lifestyle photographer.
No longer a “school run mum” and after 20 plus years living the expat life, I now find myself trying to navigate the Greek language and discovering the hidden gems of Greece .
Often accompanied by my husband Spy (Spyro) also great with my camera, I decided to write and photograph a blog about our new adventure to discover the lifestyle & traditions of the endless streets of Greece and her islands.
Our love for travel has developed over a lifetime in the aviation industry we were both crew with Saudia airline and for the last 20 years have been part of the thriving and expanding Emirates airline family.
For over 2 decades I worked with the schools of Dubai and also found myself in weddings and events that have changed Dubai over the past 20 years and although I am concentrating on Greece now you will find lots of interesting articles out and about in Dubai under my travel section.
1 - My Family - top of my list everytime.
2 - Coffee & Cake …. falling in love with Zacharoplastia (Greek cake shops) in Greece !
3 - Flowers anytime….and anywhere !!! I will do anything for a bouquet !
4 - Scarfs & Shoes – top to toe and gotta match!
5 - Colour and lots of it – Pink is my go to colour always lifts me up but at the moment Mustard is my colour.
6 - friends and people that smile – I wish the world was full of them.
My life Motto – Surround yourself with kind people and always enjoy every moment! Get out there and dare to be a little different !
Please note !
I do try everything out myself and
I often take Spy along and he gives a honest review and is a great help with my camera capturing photos of me !!!
Therefore you can happily trust our opinions. although I am honest I do not like to write about negative experiences therefore if I don't like it, it simply does not reach the blog.
All the images are captured by ourselves (unless clearly stated) with my Nikon D810 or my trusted Samsung 8 phone camera.
Most of our trips and experiences are funded by ourselves unless we state otherwise however I/we do accept requests for reviews from restaurants, cafes, bars, hotels, events and anything you would like to showcase about Greece so feel free to contact me for a collaboration and a meet up - please get in touch at email@example.com
