Well, it's about time I did one of these blogs that people have been raving about. Actually, (to tell you the truth) reading other people's blogs is one of my guilty pleasures, and I've been meaning to do one myself, but have always put it on my "to do" lists. Anyhow, let me go ahead and introduce myself! My name is Tina, and I was born in Seattle, WA. My mother is from the island of Samos Greece from a tiny village 300 meters above sea level called Ambelos. You can read about my village and my house for summer rent here. We vacationed here almost every summer until I graduated High School in '99 and started "visiting" more often. By that, I mean staying in Seattle 4 months out of the year and living and working in Samos for the rest, until I finally took the plunge in 2004 and moved indefinitely. I met my husband Vasili here in the village and we married in 2006. in 2008 we welcomed our little baby boo boy Makis. The rest is history! And I'll tell you all about it later!
This is a picture of our little village "Ambelos" Last time they checked, we had about 175 residents. On a good day, right across the sea we can see Izmir, Turkey. And to our right in the distance is the city of Kusadasi, Turkey. The views are A-MAZ-ING!
