And because Greece consists not only of the mainland, but approximately 1 million islands (you will discover that when you try planning a trip there), we decided the best way to see as much as possible is Island Hopping! The best idea, ever! Having only time to visit 3 islands, we picked Crete, Santorini and Naxos. What amazing islands, cultures and landscapes. I can only recommend a trip to any of those, and bring time, a lot of time, as there is so much to discover.
And I have to say, the Greek really have nice and fast ferries, carrying you from one island to the other in no time (well, we still talk about 4 hrs with a speed boat, but consider the distance!), in an actual quite comfortable way.
If there are no high waves that is!!!! And if there are not a felt one thousand other passengers around you making sure you know, that they are not feeling well!!! So, the one time we used one of those speed ferries, I can only assume it would have been a pleasant and quick journey. You don't want any more details... Anyway, the trusty old car ferries will bring you there too, in double the time, but alive ;-).
I want to start with photos from the Island of the Myths, the birthplace of the God Zeus, the Goddess Artemis and the God Apollo: CRETE. Enjoy the photos...
