Welcome to islandwalking.com! This site contains travelling and trekking tips for the Greek islands as well as many other islands in or not too far from the Mediterranean. It is not intended to replace any tourist or walking guides that you might have, it is only a small supplement. And indeed, it is even a prerequisite for most of the descriptions of walks on these pages that you own the guide book(s) referred to in the text.
In this blog you can also expect rants about just about anything else possibly related to walking as well as music or computers or beer or other “interesting” topics.
