Hello friends, I’m Maria Paravantes, a first-generation, Greek-American. I was born and raised in Chicago, and spent all my summers in Greece until I moved here in my late teens. For the past three decades, I have worked as a professional journalist writing out of Athens about Greece and all the things I love most: travel, food and culture.
I am also the proud founder of TheGreekVibe.com, which is the ultimate go-to source for all things Greek.
Picture the The Greek Vibe as a ‘virtual guesthouse’ where as a good Greek host I treat you to the best of Greece, its secrets, its beautiful beaches and picture-perfect destinations, its age-old traditions, its delectable foods and intoxicating spirits, and of course, initiate you into the “Greek way” of doing things like sipping your coffee slowly as you chat with friends or sampling delicious Greek ‘mezedes’ with some anise-flavored ouzo by the beach. In short: The Greek Vibe is the best of Greek hospitality in words. Join me a let's embark on #yournextGreeceadventure

Thank you, Ric. And there's so much people don't know about. That's what The Greek Vibe aims to do... show the world the 'other' side of Greece.
