My Greek Odyssey (Series 3)
8 x 60'
My Greek Odyssey takes viewers to some of the most spectacular and unique islands in Greece. But don’t go thinking it’s just another travel show – This is far from the ordinary!
Centred around the charismatic and larger-than-life character of Peter Maneas. His story is a rags to riches tale, having been born to Greek migrants that settled in Australia over 50 years ago with nothing but their suitcases. From these humble beginnings, Peter has built himself a highly successful business and is now the proud owner of a superyacht called “Mia Zoi” (One Life). Peter’s philosophy is ‘We only live once, so get the most out of your life, no matter what!’ His passion for adventure and excitement is matched by the desire he has to share his experiences with others, from family and friends, to the viewing audience.
This series 3 of My Greek Odyssey sees host Peter Maneas steering his beautiful boat, Mia Zoi, further to the east and into the Dodecanese. The name might have you thinking there’s only twelve islands here, but in actual fact there’s over 160 of them, with 26 being inhabited. The geographical location not only means that the Ottoman influence is strong, but the landscapes are much more arid, hot and dryer than other parts of Greece. It gives it a character of its own, and through our travels we’ will be showing you what makes it such a special part of the Mediterranean. The journey will see us stepping on as many of the Dodecanese as we can, from Agathonisi in the north, to Kasos in the south, which means it’s going to be a busy few months at sea. But hey, where else would you rather be!
