Snowmageddon 2017

Greece is a country perceived by most foreigners as a summer destination. Fantastic beaches to swim at, tavernas to enjoy your ouzo and meze and little white washed cycladic houses.

Summer is over and all I am left with is my camera roll full of photos. Starting from Kefalonia, where I spent most of my vacation this summer, here’s a selection I made!
