- The BlogThe insane but true stories of our family's move to Athens and life in Greece.August 20, 2019An adventure in which three Americans who don't really sail, skipper a 34 foot sailboat around the Ionian Islands, make life long friends with Brits, and crash the lunch of a Scottish Laird.

The Tate Family
We're three screaming Type A personalities/entrepreneurs (yes the 10 year old too) from Washington, D.C.

Great people, great weather, great food, highly economical, and a central jumping off point for travel throughout Europe.
