Summer in Greece

Yes I am back from Greece, at least in physical form. What can I say, the Greek archipelago is amazing. I can totally see now what the fuzz is about. Every village street is postcard picturesque, the landscape is breathtaking, the food delicious and the water is warm and clear.

We didn't book anything in advance, the only plan we had was a rough sketch on which islands we wanted to visit, the rest we made up as we went. Luckily we had no problems finding rooms and boat tickets so the trip was pretty hassle free, despite the minimal planning. We visited four islands, Naxos, Amorgos, Antiparos and Paros and they all had their own brand of charm, some were more touristy and some more rustic.

(a bit hungover from celebrating my 38th birthday the day before!)
