This blog would not have happened without the support of so many others, because an idea can only be implemented well, when you are able to combine different aspects.
On that note, I am extremely happy and grateful that different people supported my „little project“ by giving me advice, helping with the translations and the technical aspects.
Here are my heroines and heros:
Cecile Scaros – Cecile is certainly a woman you will sooner or later read about on this blog. She has French origins, but you can easily call her a globetrotter. She lived and worked in France, the UK, the USA and in the Bahrain. She got married to an Ikarian, with whom she lived in the UK and in Bahrain before settling down in Faros on Ikaria. She works from home with international companies, which gives her a chance to balance her life between her remote home office and the Ikarian outdoors. You can‘t miss her in the early morning hours, when she takes her beloved dog „Milou“ out for a long walk at the seaside in Faros, and cleans the beach on a daily basis. As she dives deeper and deeper into the Ikarian lifestyle, they’re becoming more self-sufficient; her husband Stelios and her are cultivating a large garden, where they grow all sorts of fruit and vegetables, which also keeps Cecile busy with harvesting and cooking.
I owe Cecile a big „Thank you“ for her time and her passion in revising my English texts. Since I am not a native speaker, Cecile was able to give me some hints to make my texts easier to read.
Jane Hughes – Some years ago Jane became a very dear friend to me in the Brussels community. She is English, but she also worked in different European places, like Denmark and Italy, where she raised her family, before she settled down with her dog and her cat in Brussels to work as fulltime translator for an European instution. We share a common interest in politics in general and since the beginning of the financial and economic crisis in Greece in particular. Jane followed the very first beginnings of my writing with great attention and caring support, while revising my English drafts. She encouraged me to continue, and her caring and loving backing are indispensable for me.
