Interview with Rosemary Kneipp from “Aussie in France”
by Anda from Travel Notes & Beyond, the Opinionated Travelogue of a Photo Maniac, is a Romanian-born citizen of Southern California who has never missed the opportunity to travel
This week I am starting a new series of interviews with some of my favorite bloggers on the Internet. This is not a new concept, but I am following in the footsteps of other bloggers ahead of me who came up with this bright idea. I believe these interviews are a helpful tool in getting to know each other better and establishing new relationships with like-minded people.
I wanted to start this series with someone who served as my inspiration for my own travel blog, Rosemary Kneipp, the creator/writer/photographer of Aussie in France. Read more
ANAFIOTIKA: A GREEK ISLAND IN THE FOOTHILLS OF THE ACROPOLIS
by Jo Karnaghan from Frugal First Class Travel, an Australian who loves to travel – especially in Europe – and who has gradually learned how to have a First Class trip on an economy budget, without missing out on anything!
When I visited Athens recently I was disappointed that I didn’t have time to fit in a visit to the Greek Islands. I’d sailed in the Cycladic Islands many years ago and had fond memories of those glorious blue and white houses festooned with bright bougainvillea and geraniums. Then upon studying my guidebook (you can pick up a copy via the link) I discovered Anafiotika, a little slice of the Greek Islands right in the heart of Athens….
How to find Anafiotika
Anafiotika is on the north eastern slopes of the Acropolis, not far from Monastiraki and the Plaka. Having said that, it is much easier to find from the main thoroughfare of Dionysiou Areopagitou. Turn right at Thrasyllou (just past the Tourist Information centre) and just keep walking. Read more
Experiencing a White Christmas in Europe
by Carolyn from Holidays to Europe, an Australian based business passionate about sharing their European travel expertise and helping travellers to experience the holiday in Europe they have always dreamed of
Many Australians dream of one day experiencing a white Christmas and there’s no better place to do so than in Europe. As well as its famous Christmas markets, the snowy scenes and festive atmosphere make a European Christmas something really special. With long-practised traditions and traditional festive foods to enjoy, Christmas in Europe is very different to Christmas in Australia. Read more

Thanks for the links, particularly the Greek one…. I didn’t know about that area.
I had never heard of it either!
Thanks for including my post, Rosemary. I hope it inspires your readers to visit some of Europe’s fabulous Christmas markets.
Hi Carolyn, I hope so too. It is the dream of so many people and Germany is a better bet than France for snow!
imagine my surprise when…
on opening today’s Nouvelle Republique…
there were two very familiar faces looking at me…
under the headline, on page two….
“Les blogs de Rosemary séduisent la région”
you both look very well!
Thank you! We were delighted as you can imagine.
I enjoyed reading your interview on Travel Notes & Beyond! And I’m totally with you – I don’t have as much an interest in fancy hotels or over-the-top restaurants, so I would rather be more frugal and bank the money for another trip!
A girl after my own heart!
