I am short on quick and easy blog material right now. ( I do have a long list of detailed, informative articles to write.) So I will mention a recent enquiry that we received.
Hi Michael and Karin
I have just been reading your newsletters on the Paros Paradise website about your life out there which sounds amazing. As you are obviously in touch with a lot of people on the island i was wondering if you would be able to help me. I am currently working on a programme for ITV about British Expats living in Greece. We are looking for expats that are perhaps feeling a little homesick and are now thinking about coming home to the UK. With your contacts we thought that perhaps you might know of how we could get the word out that we're looking or even that you might know people in this situation. Any help or suggestions you might have would be really appreciated. I look forwards to hearing from you. Best Wishes Ami
Actually, this programme came up at dinner the other night with some of our Brit friends. They mentioned it as a possible way for someone to get a free trip home for a visit. We lamented the negative slant of such shows that we had seen in the past. They tend to highlight all the problems and pass over the joys of living in a foreign culture. We had a good laugh that everyone we know on Paros is too happy to qualify for a TV feature.
