Good morning and wishing you a happy weekend and a wonderful summer! The farmers’ market in Nafplion is twice a week, every Wednesday and Saturday.  Now that we are just the two of us living here in Assini, we don’t really need to visit the farmers’ market twice a week but I enjoy visiting Nafplion […]

It’s been really hot during the past weeks and as that was not enough, I have been suffering from back aches and pain in the neck so that has kept me away from blogging.   I have been going for physiotherapy and I am a bit better but still I must avoid staying too long […]

Cheesecake is one of our favourite desserts but being on the Mediterranean Diet, for a few months now, I didn’t want to make something loaded with calories and unfortunately […]
