About The Greekish Life

Hi, I'm Barbara. I'm a 2nd generation Greek-American traveler, olive oil hoarder and dusty-old-photos enthusiast. 

Growing up with two sets of Greek immigrant grandparents started my life off steeped in the music, history, food and stories of the homeland they loved so much. I grew to love Greece through them at first, and then through my own travels.


I wanted to create the kind of place that I wanted to see out there in the digital world, but couldn't quite find - a beautiful little spot to go for a bit of history and culture, a touch of genealogy, a few recipes, some music and photography, and and maybe a few laughs - all through a Greek lens.

And if I wanted a place like that, maybe other people would, too!

Consider us your digital taverna when you want a bit of mental stimulation, and your relaxing kafenio when you want to browse around at your leisure. You don't need to be Greek - just Greekish.

What's "Greekish"? Anyone who loves and appreciates Greece and any part of Greek culture, whether they have Greek ancestry or not! Are you interested in the history? The music? Do you like to travel to Greece (or maybe dream of going someday)? Maybe you love to cook Greek food? It all counts! You have Greek roots? Even better! But everyone's welcome. 

Πάμε? Shall we go? 

All current-day photography, unless otherwise credited, is by me or my husband, Barry Sweet.
