Another late night arrival in Andros. Michaelis and his taxi was waiting at Gavrio port having been sent by the delightful Maria from Villa Nefeli in Batsi. 10 minutes later Batsi fell into view. A noisy first night followed due to traffic noise (the apartment was right on a main highway) and an eerie green… Continue reading Back in Batsi
At home in the home of Hermes
Grown up Greece without the price tag. The departure from Paros was fraught. I woke up to a text informing me the afternoon ferry was cancelled due to technical issues. The only other ferry that day was at 9pm that evening. In the end it departed Paros at 00.50 at night. I expected Syros to… Continue reading At home in the home of Hermes
Paros is maybe one of my very favourite places. I found it many years ago. I can’t for the life of me remember how or why I first decided to come here – but I am so glad I did. That first journey on a package holiday over 20 years ago started an enduring affair… Continue reading Paradise found

40Euros for a 2km taxi ride from Mykonos airport to the Chora? You must be joking. I opted for a 2euro single public bus fare instead. It was dark, hot and busy in Mykonos town.

An early start by holiday standards. A frappe on the harbour, some shenanigans with cash and a ticket purchase and we were loaded onto a boat bound for the historic island of Delos. Delos is an ancient archaeological island 30 minutes by boat from Mykonos Town. It is uninhabited apart from around 30 archaeologists who… Continue reading Delightful Delos
Andros slipped away from view courtesy of a Golden Star ferry. I was sad to leave. I wasn’t ready to go…I felt very much at home. Mykonos port came back into view 2 hours later. Chaos all around us, we opted to hop on a municipal bus waiting on the port. It took us into… Continue reading Cycladic Chaos
