ABOUT ME

ildiko mikos 

Traveler, Foodie,

Wine Drinker, Art Lover

I'm a working mom and an empty nester who lives to eat, loves the arts, and works to travel! Born in Buffalo, New York, I'm a first generation immigrant of 100% Hungarian descent, married to a first generation Greek. As such, our travels very frequently take us throughout Europe, but also to Turkey, Israel, Palestine and Jordan, with active plans to begin exploring Africa in the very near future. I most often stay at charming boutique hotels, Bed&Breakfasts, or Airbnbs and seek out quality at an affordable price. I would love to share tips with you on how to plan a trip, find unique lodgings and travel safely.

I enjoy cooking and re-creating the delicious ethnic flavors which I encounter on my travels, once I return home. I especially love to cook Hungarian and Greek foods to continue the culinary traditions handed down by our families. I'll share many recipes with you from simple and rustic to urban and sophisticated.

Both during travel and at home I seek out and engage in ALL cultural offerings. I especially love watching operas at the many beautiful European opera houses, listening to concerts in original Roman theaters, viewing exhibits in the countless museums and exploring the multitude of archaeological sites. From Egypt to Greece to Roman to Renaissance to the European Enlightenment ... I'M INSATIABLE!  I will share tips with you on how to enjoy the arts and engage in history on a budget.

Come indulge in my passions with me and let's savor the niceties of life together!!
