John Stamos reflects on his love for Greece in new memoir


In his new memoir ‘If You Would Have Told Me’, Hollywood star John Stamos reflects on his love for Greece and his family roots in the Peloponnese.

Speaking to Travel and Leisure Magazine, Stamos frequently talks about his travels to the homeland, with part of his memoir focusing on how travelling to his family’s home country has made a profound impact on his life.

His love for Greece grew when he began filming an episode for the TV series Who Do You Think You Are, where he found out that his grandfather came to the US from the Arcadian village of Kakouri and changed his surname from Stamatopoulos to Stamos when he arrived.

In the memoir, he consistently reflects on the feeling he gets when he is in Greece and how amazing it is to share this feeling with his wife and son.

Stamos quotes that sharing his culture with his family has brought them all to have a stronger connection to relatives oversees and to the homeland.
