In my lifetime (and I am not that young anymore), I have travelled quite a bit and visited my fair share of places. I can say, in all honesty, that Greece is my favourite place. To be more precise, one cannot classify Greece as just one place. That would be unfair. In such a small area, this amazing country has such a wide collection of holiday resorts that entire continents would envy. And they are all so different from each other.

Most Cycladic islands’ capitals are small and populated during summer mostly. But this is not the case for Naxos Town, the capital of Naxos island. There are crowds and fun all year round. There are nearly 2000 permanent inhabitants in the town’s centre and the nearest suburbs. Not to mention that most of them are young. This is what keeps the island’s capital always so vibrant, even when the tourists have gone home.
Why do we blog? Why bother to write down our thoughts and experiences, to spend money on a good camera, to learn photo and video editing and share our work? There is more to blogging than most people realize. Continue reading Travel blogs, does anybody read this stuff?
Sailing is undoubtedly the ultimate holiday experience, as those who have tried it will confirm. It is something out of the ordinary. You get to see shores that you normally wouldn’t, dive into the deep blue sea from the deck and if the captain is nice enough, he will let you navigate the boat (hopefully after some basic instructions). Keep in mind that all captains around the planet are very sensitive with their vessels, as they should be, so show the proper respect. Continue reading Sailing the Aegean Sea
I’ll tell you right now, it hadn’t been easy. It takes a great deal of talent to be able to choose a place to stay wisely. Most people fail and they end up spoiling their holiday for no apparent reason. Why? Because most of us don’t know what we really want in life.

The Greek islands are known for their moderate climate but during the last 3 years they have been experiencing some really cold winters. Snow has been falling on Naxos like never before, reaching its shores and taking the locals completely by surprise.
Luckily, it doesn’t last for too long. In only a few days, the sun is up, shinning in all it glory, restoring the climate to its usual state. Still, the northern winds are blowing, smashing the waves onto the sharp rocks of Grotta of Naxos Town, a sight much appreciated by all nature lovers.
This photo was taken yesterday (January 20th) and our photographer enjoyed not just the view but also the thunderous sound of the crashing waves.
Most of us have done this several times, but each time it is equally difficult. All our clothes, accessories, cosmetics … lay on our bed for days, next to our luggage but not even our wildest imagination can’t fit them in there!
So, each time, our summer holidays start in stress and confusion. This is not how it is supposed to be at all. Continue reading Packing for Greece summer holidays
