2020 was the year in which we launched our #WednesdayWisdom campaign, eliciting the support of contacts from within Dreams Abroad and without. Our goal was to offer an opportunity for our associates and pals to dish out some wise words about life, work, et cetera. We shared the videos on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Twitter, and have since posted them on our YouTube channel.
The Greek Islands have long captured the imagination of travelers. Their wild beauty is often portrayed as an escape into a new life. Somebody who has relocated there is Crete-based Heidi Fuller-Love and she is a big champion of the real Greece.
An experienced travel writer, Heidi has plenty of tips for those looking to get more out of their trip than a stay in a resort. She urges you to ditch the allure of the beach and head for the hills. The mountains are where you will uncover the true essence of the Islands.
Heidi has a long track record in travel and tourism. As well as being Telegraph Travel’s Greece expert, Heidi has owned and run a B&B in France. She has got good service out of her motor caravan, having clocked up 300,000km.
Heidi has gone local on Crete and particularly enjoys moving her feet to the beat of Cretan music. This folk-flecked genre has many parallels with traditional Irish compositions, as Heidi points out.
In a way, Heidi’s story is all about love and commitment. Have you gone somewhere on holiday and thought about returning there for good to live? Haven’t we all? But how many of us have taken the plunge? Heidi followed through with her dreams of abroad and feels at home far, far away from her UK roots, in the real Greece.
