About

A Greek Oddity

I am passionate about Greece and the Greek Islands.  No matter how many plans I make to travel elsewhere, I am always drawn back.

I believe there is nothing more thrilling or romantic than arriving at a new island by sea. The feeling as the ferry approaches the port is indescribable.  Everyone excitedly makes their way to the car deck and lean in towards the barrier – chomping at the bit. As the door to the ferry slowly lowers, it begins to reveal a brand new island – the anticipation  of the adventures ahead is palpable.

As of 2018 I have visited 60 Greek Islands over the course of nearly 30 years (I was a late beginner!).  It becomes addictive.  I don’t collect islands like people collect stamps.  I think I’m addicted to the experience of island hopping and of course –  totally infatuated with the sheer beauty of Greece and the wonderful hospitality of the Greeks.

I’m a budget traveller and wherever possible I use public transport to get around so if anything – I know how to visit the most beautiful and interesting parts of Greece without it costing an arm and a leg!

Come with me on my travels!
