Calling women ‘love’ can be less endearment than insult

Author: Administrator

25/06/2015

couples1Growing up in 1970s Manchester, it was entirely normal to be called “love” by a stranger – if the stranger in question was an ageing shopkeeper or bus driver. It was just like a little pat on the head, a quick “mind how you go” while they counted your change. But lately, I’ve begun to notice that I’m no longer called “love” by older people,

Greece invite you to experience an unforgettable summer

chinafood8Hotel waiter delivering room service, breakfast in foregroundEvery day of Greek summer feels like a celebration – and that’s because it is! Greece celebrates summer from May until October. Hospitable, bright and colourful, it offers incredible treasures to all. Welcome to summer in Greece! Historic treasures Summer in Greece: ancient temples gaze out at the Aegean Sea. Portara in Naxos, Delos, Skarkos in Ios, Faistos in Heraklion, Crete. Famous summer destinations where Greece’s past is illuminated by the Mediterranean sun. Ancient Olympia, Knossos and the Ancient Valley of Gortyna, the monasteries of Mt Athos, Akrotiri in Santorini: all are just a stone’s throw from the sea, and should be high priority on your summer holiday itinerary. As should the archaeological museums, Byzantine monasteries, castles, towers, and ancient trails. In Greece, even the smallest sight has a big history. Discover it. Authentic moments in the Greek islands Discover authentic Greece when you travel to the islands of the Aegean and the Ionian. Donoussa, Schinoussa, Anafi, Kimolos, Halki, Kastelorizo. From Symi to Ikaria and Amorgos, Tilos, Kalymnos, Alonissos, Samothraki, Ithaca, Paxi, exotic Antipaxi, and the lush, green island of Lefkada. You’ll share meze, ouzo and local wine with fishermen, village leaders, and housewives who bake bread in wood-burning ovens. Over treats and delicacies like amygdalota (crushed almond shortbread), soumada (almond syrup), mastiha, homemade lemonade, and aromatic Greek coffee, the locals will share the stories of their land. Myths, customs and traditions are still alive today, passed along from generation to generation through word of mouth. They’ll share improvised poems and songs, and you’ll want to hum along. Summer in Greece is generous and pure. Water sports and boundless energy For water sports enthusiasts, the Greek summer provided the perfect backdrop: Perivolos in Santorini. Psarou, Paradise and Paranga in Mykonos. Punda Beach in Paros. Mylopotas in Ios. You’ll knock back shots at the fun-filled beach bars all day long. Multicoloured kiteboards and windsurf sails play in the waves and in the wind. Vouliagmeni in the Athenian Riviera. Paros. Mili and Vassiliki Beaches in Lefkada. Prasonisi in Rhodes, Sigri in Lesvos, Sarti in Halkidiki. Everyone is one under the sun. Beach volleyball and paddle ball. Scrabble and backgammon under the shade of your umbrella. Diving from the dock, tubing and water skiing. Beautiful bathing suits, colourful sarongs, tanned bodies and smiling faces. Greece’s beaches always emit a positive and vibrant vibe, thanks to young people from all over the world. Panoramic view of Navagio beach Sailing experiences in Greece A woman with a bathingsuit and sun hat in the Greek islands The famous beach of Navagio in Zakynthos Navagio in Zakynthos from above Balos beach in Crete The beautiful Balos beach on Crete island A taste of Greece and the Mediterranean Day after day your palate will be pleased. The Greek summer is overflowing with flavours and aromas: wild greens, fragrant fruits, legumes, vegetables, cheese, warm bread, extra virgin olive oil, fresh fish and seafood, homemade wine. Every place in Greece has its own microclimate. Every village, island and city has its own recipes. Whether you are walking with a slice of juicy watermelon along the beach, or indulging in a gourmet meal made with local produce, whether you’re dipping a slice of bread into pure olive oil or eating an oyster straight from the sea, the delicious flavours will overwhelm you. Wind in your sails Sea routes in the Greek islands: Santorini. Mykonos. Milos. Crete. Lefkada. Corfu. Zakynthos. Paxi. Award-winning marinas, picturesque fishing ports, hidden beaches, and bays with emerald water. More than 6,000 islands and islets, on a coastline more than 14,500 kilometres long – what more could yachting and sailing enthusiasts ask for! The summer winds in the Aegean are perfect for competitive sailing, while the calmer waters of the Ionian are ideal for smooth sailing. Dive into the fun Bonfires on the beach. Conversations, music, night swimming in a peaceful sea, under the moon. The barman concocts a new cocktail recipe, and treats you to shots with exotic flavours. The music pulses and the dancing begins. The same happens in the bars of Hora, where the Djs let the beat lift the lively crowd. Greek summer is synonymous with nightlife, that lasts until the sunrise. You’ll go straight from the club to the beach, and with that first dip in the sea your mind and body will be revived. It’s romantic and emotional, without a schedule or obligation. Just live it! You are all invited... To the fairs and festivals of August 15th throughout Greece, with their rituals, lutes and treats. To the traditional weddings, and the bridal procession through the island’s cobblestone streets. At the Saints Day fairs, where the locals serve you homemade food, raki and wine. To the big parties. To the cultural events and concerts at the open-air theatres overlooking the sea, or in the mediaeval fortresses. To the gastronomy festivals and ouzo celebrations. Hospitable, open-hearted, always ready to treat you, Greeks will welcome you with open arms. Because they want you to get to know Greece as it is – pure and authentic. And you will invite them into your heart forever. The hinterland No matter what beach in Greece you may find yourself on, it’s worth taking a trip into the hinterland. Nearby you’ll find traditional villages with shady squares lined with coffee shops. An archaeological site. A significant museum. Trails and parks. Lakes and wetlands. Popular destinations that offer unforgettable summer experiences are: Pelion, Crete, Messinia, Mani, Nafplio, Katerini, Preveza and Parga, Ilia and of course the Athenian Riviera with Sounion are just some of the places that will impress you, without ever having to leave the sea breeze.
