One morning on a bus journey from Kassiopi, travelling down to Corfu town along the beautiful & mesmerising coastline with its winding roads and stunning scenery, something inside me just changed, you see for two years prior to my stay in Kassiopi, I had fallen out of love with cooking, I felt bitter that I couldn’t do what I wanted to do to my full potential anymore but, I know this sounds all ‘mills & boon’ but my desire to live life again overwhelmed me….from that moment I knew that my life was going to take me in another direction.
It was on this trip in 2019 that I came up with the idea for my Facebook blog “Recipes from my travels” now I have multiple social media platforms promoting businesses in the hospitality & tourism industry, thousands of followers, I’m a writer, columnist and published author, with another book on the way, thanks to Greek News and Radio FL called “My Corfu Odyssey”
They have even offered me my own radio show.
I also campaign for awareness in mental health, addiction and other life threatening issues and stigmas.
And all of this from one visit to Kassiopi, Corfu with my Sister Lorraine.
Thank you to the people of Kassiopi and Corfu….I owe you so much.
It’s such a wonderful opportunity for me to be offered my own radio show on Greek News and Radio FL
and for them to have belief in me, especially Ioannis Mitsakos & Ioanna Lazarou
I’m not going to go into all of the shows details yet, but all I can say is that I will be joined by some truly amazing guests, from all walks of life, that involves Greek hospitality & tourism around the world.
Just two of those guests who won’t need any introduction will be
Irini Tzortzoglou who is a Greek Chef and winner of the 2019 UK Masterchef show competition.
She is most definitely an inspiration to me, not only as a fellow Chef but also as a person.
