Behind Naxos is a series of small islands known as The Little Cyclades or “Back Islands”.   They number about 12 in all but only 4 are inhabited; Donoússa, Páno Koufoníssi, Skhinoússa, and Irakliá. I’ll admit Dear Reader, that I am not sure if the name “Back Islands” comes from “being behind” or” at the back of” Naxos or if it is because they are the last of the islands in […]

Poor Ios. No really. I have never felt an island was more misrepresented than Ios. It’s “the Crazy Party Island” right?  But there is so much more than that to Ios.  Even if the reputation is actually well deserved… and trust me we saw some crazy stuff… but it’s not all there is.

We arrived on Santorini island (also known as Thira) from Athens after a long ferry ride at the principal port of Athinias.  After pushing our way through the crowds, and after some negotiation with different bus drivers, we finally made our way to Oia (The “o” is silent thus pronounced Ia). We drove through the capital of Fira – a much busier place than where we were headed.  You see […]

It has been a long time since we have truly fallen in love with a hotel. That’s why I am jumping the gun a little here and going straight to this hotel review. There are other airlines, airports and hotels to review not to mention sooooo many stories to share, but Dear Reader, I can’t honestly wait to tell you about this hotel. We stayed at Oia’s Sunset […]
