I am not sure how I came across Colour Greece.
I was in London and not even yet decided to move to Greece.
Surfing on facebook or instagram, I discover Avrokomi and Vasiliki’s project about colouring books about Greece.
I am not a fan of colouring books at all but I found this venture very brilliant!
At that time there was a sort of kickstarter campaing to support these lovely girls and guess what, I gave mine!
Some time later on I got my Athens Colour Travel Guide , it arrived at my londoner address with some colour pencils, ready to be used.
I am well known as the greeks’ stalker 🙂 so I sent an email to Avrokomi and Vasiliki to express my happiness about the book and I decided to write it in my broken greek.
This way our on line friendship started.
We became friends on Facebook, Instagram, etc etc.
Till one day we met and guess where? We met in Santorini!
After the success of the colouring book about Athens, Avrokomi and Vasiliki decided to continue dedicating themselves to the greek islands (and not only, sorry Thessaloniki!) and of course, why not starting from Santorini!
As soon as I got the news I reserved some copies for some little friends and one for my self, of course.
And the delivery was free of charge as it was done by hand!
I met the gorgeous girls in Fira and we had a coffee and talked about our respective projects and lives.
We have lots in common I think, we are young, we are women, we are using our creativity to develop our lives.
I find very bright the idea of using colour to give back to Greece its deserved splendor and respect, after years of grayness and sorrow.
Colour Santorini, as Colour Athens, is a tiny handy sweet travel guide.
Its tips are actually very good and they let me discover few places that I didn’t know before.
And, last but not least, they are written both in english and in greek, so I can practise my language skills!
The project will keep growing and expanding and I wish you, Avrokomi and Vasiliki, the best!
