My name is Patricia and I am from Scotland. I grew up in a little seaside village just north of Edinburgh. I studied French and Italian Literature at the University of Edinburgh, then did a Post Graduate Diploma in European Marketing, which then gave me the opportunity to work in business in Brussels, Belgium and Hamburg, Germany. My love of the sun, the island and the people led me to come to Crete over 10 years ago where I have lived and worked as a teacher and tour guide ever since. I have 4 beautiful children, 2 large, lively dogs and one large fluffy cat!
