Island hopping in Greece

Last month we had our big trip away and spent it visiting the many islands of Greece. We stopped off on Naxos, Paros, Antiparos, Santorini Ios and Mykonos. So we were not too busy on Twitter or Facebook.

Yes it was a tough time, with the oppressive heat, cheap wine and delicious Greek cuisine!

We got to do a good bit of snorkelling in the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean. The marine life was colourful but not exactly teeming, unlike our seashores. The octopus as usual got the most excited shout of the day!


I would highly recommend the trip to everyone, especially in the quieter end of the tourist season as it can get really crowded and the prices go through the roof.

Everywhere we went the water had infinite visibility and it took quite a while to get used to it and actually look for fish instead of commenting how clear the water was!
