Better Homes and Gardens podcast, Tastebud Traveller Guest speaker
Here is the information on our recent Better Homes and Gardens podcast.
We are so excited to be able to speak with on the Better Homes and Gardens newest podcast, the Tastebud Traveller.
Each week Julia Zaetta and Ben Alcock interview various guests who are considered experts in a particular travel destination. We feature in the episode, A Taste of Greece.
In this episode, we spoke about all things Greek food and travel but in particular, Cretan food and culture. We gave some options of hidden gems to visit. We spoke about the things that we are passionate about and we feel makes Crete an unique destination to visit. Not only is the largest of all the Greek islands but we also feel that it has something to offer for every type of traveller.
