Ios

Greek Islands continued… Ios, Continuing our travel North from Santorini with Kelly aboard, we first stopped in Ios. We enjoyed Kelly for 8 days and in that time, we visited Santorini, Ios (all over the island), Schoinoussa – primarily the water and anchorage, and finally Paros. Likely the question we are most frequently asked is:Continue reading “Ios”

Santorini- Thira, Oia, Pyrgos Kallistis

While at a cocktail party in Montenegro- before we left on our 3-month tour of Greece, we met someone who had cruised the Cyclades the year before. One of the highlights of enjoying time with other cruisers is the wealth of information we can share with each other from one year to the next. RarelyContinue reading “Santorini- Thira, Oia, Pyrgos Kallistis”

The Cyclades Islands (Milos, Folegandros, Thira)

Rounding the peninsula of the Peloponnese, we had opted to head due East, rather than make the turn North heading to Athens. Our primary considerations for the next 6 weeks are the 7 guests arriving in 4 different increments. Since all our family and friends arriving should see, at a minimum, Athens- and most wantContinue reading “The Cyclades Islands (Milos, Folegandros, Thira)”

Lefkas, Nydri, Ithaca, Cephalonia, Zakynthos, Katakolo (Olympia), Kalamata, BWA Yacht Service, Olive Route Tours, and so long Kim, Steve and Missy….

The best way to do that isContinue reading “Montenegro – Wrap up”

Montenegro – Winter projects, The War in Ukraine and … life

OMGosh Laurie, are you following what is happening in Ukraine? Montenegro This was the comment I received on a social media post I recently made. One which, by the way, had nothing at all to do with Ukraine. It made me remember the early days of the Covid pandemic when concerned friends and family, certainContinue reading “Montenegro – Winter projects, The War in Ukraine and … life”

Montenegro (for winter)

We arrived for the first time back in May and we loved it so much, we stayed for a month (when only planning a week). For those of you who know us, you are thinking “nothing new there”. And you would be right – we often change our plans when we arrive somewhere new, andContinue reading “Montenegro (for winter)”
