Welcome to Walking the Greek Islands

 Islandwalking Banner

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.

This site is dedicated to my mother Elsa (1934-2013)

EXPRESS SKOPELITIS

And speaking of ferries, I think it is time to re-post (and re-watch) this:

New ferry added to the ferry collection!?

Yes, I admit it, I do “collect” Greek ferries. Latest entry was the Flying Cat 6. My old outdated ferry page is NOT MAINTAINED and still exists only for my own amusement, but I am going to add new ferries when I have used them. Probably. You cannot expect any updates to these pages, except for the addition of new boats, with a minimum of information. The URL of the page is http://ferries.islandwalking.com.

Great Greek White Wine

Assyrtiko by Gaia Wild Ferment 2014

Assyrtiko by Gaia Wild Ferment 2014

This great Assyrtiko from Santorini is readily available even in Norway for the very reasonable price of NOK 175,00. Would probably get even better with at least some further maturation. Wonderful fruit and acidity that behaves like fireworks on your palate.
