Olive, Feta & Ouzo is an expat lifestyle blog with an emphasis on travel and food within Greece. Amanda has spent most of her life travelling. She served in the UK armed forces before going to teach in London. After two years of city life Amanda left the UK in 2006 to travel and work as an English teacher. She has lived and worked in Kuwait, Dubai, Qatar and now Greece.

Based on the island of Rhodes since 2013, she started the blog as a way to share the move from Qatar to Greece a country that has captured her heart. She now shares her love of slow travel, getting to know the culture, language, cuisine and people. She is slowly exploring Greece with her husband and finding the quiet out of the way places alongside popular destinations.
