Someone recently asked me what does happiness mean to me? I thought for a while and came up with many potential answers, but in the final analysis I responded, “taking a Greek Island Trip”. The Greek Islands are magical and most dream about getting there when it is time to retire. But why wait until then? What if retirement never comes? The Greek Islands are waiting for you today and what makes it even more tempting is that the prices are right, the weather is getting better by the day and before you know it it will be April and time to swim!
The Greek Islands are diverse, from the dry and baron like Folegandros to the green and lush like Skiathos. Or if you prefer a different pace try the Ionian Sea which lies in between Greece and Italy, and explore the magical island of Zakinthos, pictured here. Another favorite island of mine is Corfu with its deep and rich history featuring a tremendous Venetian influence offering a culinary delight at every turn. In addition Corfu offers spectacular beaches, a vibrant town and a vibe to rival any of the other Greek Islands.
What ever your Island of choice you will not be disappointed with the infamous Greek Filoxenia which will greet you in all corners of Greece. Life is short and the time is now to live. A good resource to begin planning your Greek Island Trip can be found here.
