Greece is the Word!
If you are looking for a summer destination look no further than Greece! With it’s many islands, each with it’s own unique beauty from hidden coves and turquoise seas to cliff top villages and crumbling church ruins it has everything you need for a perfect trip. One of my favourite islands is Symi – a jewel hidden away off the coast of Rhodes (about an hour’s ferry ride) which is eclipsed by it’s colourful and pretty houses perched high up into the cliffs that surround the bay. Don’t be a day-tripper, stay for a night or three to experience the magic of Symi and stay at the charming Aliki or the superb Old Markets (or both!) and enjoy the steep but dreamy walk to the top of the town passing by the old ladies selling herbs, and wander around the island to some of the old tavernas where it’s just you, the locals and the best hummus you will ever taste! Stop for a refreshing dip in the crystal clear waters and borrow a boat from Georgio at the Aliki and visit some of the secluded coves on nearby islands. It is an idyllic escape and one that you will dream about forever, it is the land of the Gods and it’s not hard to see why!
