  • Ex-Creteing and De-Greeceing!It's my last day in Crete (and Greece), hence the headline (borrowed from Allied evacuations in WW2).

  • Mykonos to CreteAfter packing and checking out of the Villa Konstantin (a fantastic place to stay), I loitered by the pool with Daniel and then headed off to the port at around 1.00pm. The ferry was late (only one of the four I Posted by Adamtrumble in Northern hemisphere 2014 | Aug 25, 2014
  • Sail of the centuryGreece lightning, nah, jokes, not a spot of rain.... just plenty of sunshine, feta, octopus and Souvlaki.

  • MykonosOut for dinner on Friday with a doctor from the Dominican Republic who works in Spain. Saturday was something of a do-nothing day, other than a visit to the gym and lie by the pool. This is not a good place to Posted by Adamtrumble in Northern hemisphere 2014 | Aug 25, 2014
  • DelosYesterday, at the last minute, I decided to go on a day cruise to the islands of Delos and Rhenia. The decision was taken at 9.45 and the boat left at 11.00. The boat was a two-master, and the passengers were all Posted by Adamtrumble in Northern hemisphere 2014 | Aug 23, 2014
  • Greece days 5-8We arrived in the port of Athens early on a very hot, sunny day. When we got off the subway in the city, it felt quiet and peaceful. That impression is probably partly owing to the fact that Athens is Posted by Bredwardz in Bredwardz on the Road | Aug 22, 2014
  • Mytiln (Lesbos)We arrived at the Mytiln Port via the SS Mariner's tender boat. Jim and Shirley saved our seats as we almost missed the launch, fortunately they made new friends and we made it just in time. We then Posted by AZClyde in Turkey & Greece | Aug 21, 2014
  • I'm still here!My readers must be waiting with baited breath to hear from me...it's been three days! [img=http://photos.travellerspoint.com/670049/180_BEC923B2CD71570F533D3BF8BA8DD9D5. Posted by Adamtrumble in Northern hemisphere 2014 | Aug 21, 2014
  • SantoriniI am into my second week on Santorini, also known as Thira, the southern most island of the Greek Cyclades, just northeast of Crete. The island is shedding its summer tourist cocoon. The black lava sand beach of Posted by Carol Van Sant in Around the World | Oct 12, 2012
  • Beach & burnAn early night last night and a particularly lazy day today. I actually got too much sun yesterday, although I won't peel. I am quite brown. Suncream is very expensive here. I'm not sure why. It's pretty windy - too windy for Posted by Adamtrumble in Northern hemisphere 2014 | Aug 18, 2014
  • I'm too old for this!After my post last night, I met James (a guy from Melbourne I met in Santorini) at 11.00pm. That, of course, is past bed time, but here things are just getting started. We went to a very nice restaurant for dinner Posted by Adamtrumble in Northern hemisphere 2014 | Aug 17, 2014
  • Santorini to MykonosNo update yesterday as didn't do much other than go to the beach. Returned my quad bike this morning and then caught the ferry to Mykonos. It was late, but the seas were calm. Arrived this afternoon and was met (late) and Posted by Adamtrumble in Northern hemisphere 2014 | Aug 16, 2014
  • Greece days 3-4Rhodes is the largest of the Dodecanese islands and a major transport hub (our decision to go there was mostly dictated by ferry schedules...) After peaceful Kastellorizo, the harbor in Rhodes was a shock of people, cars, and tchotchke hawkers. Posted by Bredwardz in Bredwardz on the Road | Aug 15, 2014
  • Greece days 1-2On Tuesday morning we took a ferry to Kastellorizo, Greece. We chose Kastellorizo primarily because it is close to Turkey (only 2 km/30 min by boat). As a delightful bonus, it was described as “insanely pretty,” and did not disappoint. Given Posted by Bredwardz in Bredwardz on the Road | Aug 15, 2014
  • Santorini scubaToday I did two scuba dives from a boat. The first was not far from Santorini, diving to 22 metres. The second dive was on the 1926 wreck of a ship sunk just off the volcanic island adjacent to Santorini. Both were nice. Then Posted by Adamtrumble in Northern hemisphere 2014 | Aug 14, 2014
  • Santorini - OiaA visit to the beach which was pretty hot (no wind), then a ride to Oia (pronounced ear), the northern town that is very spectatular - many houses built into the cliffs. The photo of the door in the cliff was Posted by Adamtrumble in Northern hemisphere 2014 | Aug 13, 2014
  • SantoriniA trip to the main winery late morning...not for wine, but for coffee and the view! Then to the Red beach, the white beach (accessable only by boat (and where Posted by Adamtrumble in Northern hemisphere 2014 | Aug 12, 2014
  • SantoriniI picked up another quad-bike (sportier and cheaper than the Naxos one) and then Billy, a Brisbane boy staying with his aunt and cousin here, so he was a great guide. We went up to a high saddle called Ancient Thera Posted by Adamtrumble in Northern hemisphere 2014 | Aug 11, 2014
  • Naxos to SantoriniThe wind kicked in yesterday, so I got a kite on the congested Mikri Vigla beach where there are two kite schools. I managed to kite of five of the seven days on Naxos, so I can't complain. I went back to Posted by Adamtrumble in Northern hemisphere 2014 | Aug 10, 2014
  • NaxosAfter some work and the usual 2.5 hour coffee, I returned to find a gift from my hostess. Beware of Grreks bearing gifts! I headed off on the quad-bike for a l Posted by Adamtrumble in Northern hemisphere 2014 | Aug 8, 2014
  • Lazy day in NaxosI went for a walk to Aliko, a couple of kilometres south of where I am staying. It's a pretty area, with a number of derelict buildings, a beach, and a chapel. Some people lived there as well. The chapels are all Posted by Adamtrumble in Northern hemisphere 2014 | Aug 8, 2014
  • NaxosThe wind has dropped, so no kiteboarding, but still beautiful weather. Walking back from coffee, I passed this family slaving away clearing bracken and weeds. I r Posted by Adamtrumble in Northern hemisphere 2014 | Aug 7, 2014

  • Santorini is Θήρα, Θήρα is SantoriniSantorini is best seen on a boat. From far away the impressive cliff sides topped off with a “whipped cream” spread of houses promise perfection. But as you get closer it is difficult to see past the hoards of tourists. Posted by shaunadenada in Shauna De Nada | Aug 5, 2014
