The Sun and the Moon

FLY ME TO THE MOON TRAVEL NEWSLETTER VOLUME 54

Dear Traveler,

Where there is light there is life … and as a new month draws closer and we transition into Fall, we are inspired to create new memories.

Greece is a country bathed in brilliant light and throughout the centuries it has enjoyed a special relationship with the god of sun, Helios. We explore this divine relationship further in our “The Sun and the Moon” issue.

One doesn’t exist without the other and as with all things in life, there is no light without the darkness, or happiness without sadness.

After summer comes fall and then winter slowly creeps in, life is happening all around us and the circle of life takes its toll.

Since antiquity, the ancient Greeks followed special rituals to celebrate the sun and the moon. Until this day we keep the tradition alive, through modern experiences. A well-lived Greek life, for locals and visitors – takes the sun and moon into account.

We invite you on this meaningful journey of connecting the dots, and share with you our favorite places to enjoy the beauty of the Greek sun.

Are you ready to experience the Greek sun, firsthand?

Sincerely yours,

Elena Papanicolaou
Founder

Eternal sunlight 
THE GREEK SUN

The brilliant light of Greece is famous the world over. Seeing the great ancient monuments bathed in sweet bright light, it seems almost as though the country has a special relationship with the sun. Some places in Greece – Rhodes for example – are basking in the sunlight 300 days per year. And Athens is one of Europe’s sunniest capitals.

 THE FULL MOON OF AUGUST – A NIGHT OF CELEBRATION AND CULTURE

The rising of a full moon over the Greek horizon is a sight to behold, whether you are at the sea or in the ancient urban metropolis. The ancient Greeks thought so too, associating the moon with a beloved Goddess – Selene. In fact, even today in Greece the moon is poetically sometimes called Selini, and the Panselinos is the full moon.
