Mareva - This is why our showroom is next to it ;)

Best travel tip to beat jet lag:

Dimitra - My best tip to beat jet lag is that once I board the plane I immediately turn my watch to the destination time. I read somewhere that Margaret Thatcher did that. I’ve done it for decades and it works. It’s all about programming our brain.

Mareva - I never seem to beat jet-lag. Maybe I’ll start using Mimikas tip!

Favorite café (anywhere in the world):

Both - Starbucks!

Favorite restaurant (anywhere in the world) and what do you order?

Dimitra - This is difficult because there are so many we're such foodies!

Mareva: Thalasaki in Pylos. I'll order the Tiniako cheese (cheese from the Greek island of Tinos) with poppy seeds on it.

Mimika: Papadakis in Pireus is one of my favorite places. I usually order the Kritharaki with caravida (orzo-like pasta with giant shrimp) or the Caparofilo with tomato (stuffed caper leaves with tomato). Both are delicious!
