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)

Very Nice Moschofilero

mantinia-nassiakos

This weekend I have been sampling this very nice Moshofilero. Fairly inexpensive too. Warmly recommended! I cannot remember I have ever had a Moshofilero more than once before, and that was the Skouras version (unforgettable dinner at Petrinos, Kos Town). As far as I can remember (it has been a few years…) this one is equally good.

Flying Cat 5

Yes, I am threading water here… I was anticipating another trip to Greece this year, but while Zzzzzzzzzzyriza and Tzzzzzzzzipras hold the Greek population as hostage there will of course be no such thing. Greek people: I can only hope you can get rid of them real soon so that I and other tourists can safely travel to your beautiful country again. You know it is needed (both things). In the meantime there is another ferry in the collection, the Flying Cat 5.

EXPRESS SKOPELITIS

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

(This documentary about the famous little ship “EXPRESS SCOPELITIS” was filmed between 2004 and 2008.)

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 My old outdated ferry page is NOT MAINTAINED and still exists only for my own amusement, but I am going to add new ferries when I have used them.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.
