Karagiozis and the musical island

Corfu is a strangely musical island. Throughout Greece, music always seems to be there, in the background. From the singing cicadas in their heat cocooned trees; to the dark Greek blues, full of pain and intoxication, of rebetiko music in the winter months coming from the streets of steamy ouzeri; to the tragoudia tis douleias […]

Elafonisi

Turquoise water. White-pink-black sand, as a result of the presence of millions of crushed shells. Dunes. Indigenous white summer sand lillies. Lagoons with thigh-deep water. Αnd a pirate hide-out in old times. Sounds like a dream? Yes. But is actually very real. Located in the remote southwest corner of Crete, this penninsula-islet is definitely worth […]

Kalarrytes

“Syrrako and Kalarrytes” is like the “Beatles and the Stones”. People spend hours arguing about which-one they prefer but- truth is- they are both genius- and fans know it. So if you have climbed all your way to Syrrako then stay long enough to visit its little sister- village Kalarrytes. Both stone-built jewels-same stone built […]
