SUMMER: Kalo Kalokairi

ANGELIKI Summer in Greece travel

This time of year in Greece you can hear people greet each other on the streets, at cafes and tavernas and in the markets with "Kalo Kalokairi!” This is the Greek way of wishing a pleasant summer for the months ahead. It is our way of reminding each other that it is a special time to savor with friends and family - hopefully near the thalassa (Greek for sea).

Our kalokairi will be spent in our new Greek sandals along with a cork bag that's water resistant, fits just what you need, and goes well with day and night. We highly recommend them for your own kalokairi - they are great travel staples.



I grew up in Austin, Texas where I was first introduced to the colors of Mexican interiors and spent my summers in Greece where my yiayia taught me the holy trinity of Greek cooking: lemons, olive oil, and salt. After studying photography and environmental policy at Sewanee: The University of the South I earned my B.A. in 2009 and moved to Washington, DC to work on political and public advocacy campaigns for The Nature Conservancy where I learned about message development, strategic planning, and feasibility research. In 2014, after the birth of my daughter and in an effort to strengthen my Greek ties and resurrect my photography I launched an e-shop called, ANGELIKI, where I share my hand-picked selection of my favorite Greek designs.

My love for fonts, film, and finesse has always remained true throughout this journey. Today, I live in Atlanta, Georgia and and work full-time as a mother, photographer, website publisher and shop curator
