Sophie, your Destination Expert

After visiting Athens with my family at a young age, all I had in mind was going back to Greece to find the sweet aroma of the orange blossoms that had captivated me. About 4 years ago, my dream came true! Not only did I make it back to Athens, but also met my very own Greek God… and have never been able to leave the city since then!

Athens is a city with a thousand facets where life is good, rocked by its ancient history and its mild Mediterranean sun throughout the year. Explore the historic center and get lost in the pretty alleys of Plaka, where you will find a myriad of taverns where you can enjoy a delicious moussaka accompanied by a refreshing ouzo. In the evening, grab a drink in one of the trendy rooftops of Monastiraki, and enjoy the beautiful view of the Acropolis…
Athens is also the starting point to reach many Greek islands, some of which can be reached in just an hour by boat. Did you say getaway? Yes!

Whether in Athens for a weekend or an extended vacation, I will be happy to share with you my good spots around the city and its surroundings. I can also help you organise your vacation in Greece and more particularly in Corfu, the largest of the Ionian islands with a rich multicultural background and breathtaking landscapes.

Sophie speaks French, English and a few words of greek !

Olivier, your Destination Expert

My story with Sri Lanka began more than 10 years ago with the meeting of my future wife, who was born and raised in her life. After several round trips, we take the plunge and decide to settle there.
I am passionate very quickly for Colombo, this capital which contains authentic and animated places. I will be happy to make you discover off the beaten track to meet the population and their traditions.
I discovered this magical island where welcome and kindness are not empty words and qualities anchored in all Sri Lankans.
Lovers of nature and hiking, I find in this island all that I need. A variety of landscapes: green mountains with beaches lined with coconut trees. The local cuisine, generous and spicy is also a valuable asset of this country with multiple flavors.
I want to share all these encounters, these new places and my passion for the country and I do not doubt that Sri Lanka will fill you and justify its reputation of “Pearl of the Indian Ocean”.

Olivier speaks french and english.

Lucie, your Destination Expert

Destination Expert Lucie grew up between Latin America and France, studied architecture in Paris and lived in Japan. But it’s San Francisco that she has been calling home for the past few years. Architectural gem, tech hub and sanctuary of the hippie movement, San Francisco is a very international city. Which is reflected on the wide variety and quality of its restaurants. Are any other reasons to visit San Francisco really needed?! The city is also a great starting point for a roadtrip in California. Lucie loves finding hidden gems around the city and sharing them, so don’t wait any longer, get in touch!
