Hi, I’m Bex and welcome to my travel blog – Life Beyond Borders. I live in and write about Greece.

Bex at sea - Life Beyond Borders

After spending over a decade in this beautiful Mediterranean country, originally teaching English, I fell into Travel Writing for the likes of Rough Guides, Lonely Planet and my own award-winning novel / Travel Memoir “Girl Gone Greek“.

If you’re looking for the ultimate guide to what to do / eat and cultural nuances in Greece, you’ve come to the right place.

You’ll also find unique insights into a small selection of other European countries, plus adventure travels.
