Greece

Greece is my favourite place in all of Europe!

Henry Miller wrote in The Colossus of Maroussi:

“I would stroll about in the dazzling starlight, repeating to myself as if it were an incantation: “You are in another part of the world, in another latitude, you are in Greece, in Greece, do you understand?”… I had the strange feeling of being at home, of being in a spot so familiar…. Greece is of the utmost importance to every man who is seeking to find himself”     

For me the very best way to see the country and the islands is to hop on a ferry and drift between them setting down now and then to enjoy the history, the people, the food, the ouzo and the Mythos!

  10. Hi Andrew! Expect you noticed that I’d nominated you for greece in the Picture the World Project? http://restlessjo.wordpress.com/2012/06/10/picture-the-world/
    Not sure when you’re back from Russia, or if you’ll have the time, but it’s a brand new project and they’re just getting it up and running. I thought it was a great idea, but no worries if not.

  11. I’ve only been to Santorini (your cover photo I think) & I completely love it! If i could pick only one country to go to for the rest of my life it would be Greece 🙂 Can’t wait to win the lottery & start island hopping there!

  13. Just curious — You don’t like Crete? I lived there just outside New Gouvas for approximately 2 years.

    • Yes, I like Crete, I hope I didn’t give the impression that I don’t. I have only been there once, in 2001 when I stayed at Agios Nikolaos. It was only for a few days and my favourite place was Knossos.
