Dee Nicolou Serkin
Hi All! My name is Dee Serkin.
My writing includes my personal travel experiences, destination, history, and cultural information. Included in my writings are regional recipes and cocktails. I write depicting myself as the protagonist and the destination as the main character in my story. But most importantly, as a reader you will find, that my heart and soul are woven into my stories; how travel has touched my life leading to self-discovery and my sense of adventure.
My travel adventures started when I was six years old when my parents took me to Greece, my family’s native land. When I was 12, I began spending my summers in Greece at summer camp. At that age, summer camp abroad seemed like a punishment….. away from my friends, missing out on all the summer fun at home. But, by the time I was 16, I knew the Mediterranean would someday be my home. It was a dream worth pursuing! I was able to live in the Mediterranean region for 2 years. I have now returned to the United States. I will continue to travel using the States as my home base.
Over the last 20 years, I have had the privilege to travel to 53 countries on six continents with many more on the ole bucket list.
Travel exposes us to different cultures, and gives us the freedom to explore and learn. I have seen some amazing things, met amazing people, and made memories to last a lifetime.
I believe the idea that sticks out most in my mind as a result of my travels is that no matter where you are, what you are doing, no matter your economic status, your nationality, or religion, as people, when it comes right down to it, we all just really want the same thing……. we want happiness, a roof over our heads, food in our bellies, we want safety. I have been to some very impoverished countries and some very affluent destinations and it’s the same desire expressed to me by many. The scenery, the food, and the colors might be different, but the same desire resonates.
I kindly ask that you visit my site often. I encourage you to leave feedback. But, the kindest thing you can do for me, but more importantly, for yourself, is to travel your dreams. Make those memories, eat that food, drink that wine, and truly experience this glorious world we live in!
Remember, friends, "To Travel is to Live!"
