This trip to Greece was especially memorable because we traveled from island to island on the Greek Ferry System. There were few tourists, lots of Greeks , and we were able to visit many lesser touristed islands. Our kids remember this as one of their favorite trips. It was a relaxing, wonderful time. We stayed in small, privately-owned, beach hotels, all of which had covered restaurants on the sand of the beautiful Mediterranean beaches.
Note: it is easy to book passage on the ferries before you leave. Ferries are inexpensive, full of helpful locals, and the scenery viewed from the ships, traveling from island to island cannot be beat!
Here are some highlights:
Greece & her lovely islands are definitely worthy of everyone’s bucket list. Like most of our list, we would like to return to visit more islands!
This does however, create the delightful dilemma of an ever expanding bucket list!
Not such a bad thing though, is it?

Officially, Happy New Year, Cindy! 😀 )))
Yes, yes and yes! These photos are fantastic! We traveled to Greece/Greek Islands in 2007 for 2 weeks (my first time), and just love it! Food was fantastic too (I bought 3 super cookbooks)! Have you been to Meteora? Fae.
No I haven’t even heard of Meteora! Is it an island? I so agree about the food. I still dream about the baked goat cheese……incredible!
Happy New Year to you my friend!
Oh… now I am tickled to do a post on Metéora, complexes of Eastern Orthodox monasteries on rock towers (magical), a two-day bus trip from Athens, toward inner Greece.
Sounds magnificent! I am looking forward to the post! Thank you.
Great shots of a place I’ve always wanted to visit. I’ve heard the dry, clear air gives a special quality to the light there, and I can see it in your photos.
Yes, I hadn’t heard this, but it is quite true! Thank you!!
Great photos, and as usual, makes me want to travel more! The picture with the moon in the sky also is really neat!
Thank you my dear The Greek islands are so special because you get the ancient ruins and the warm, lazy beaches! Go for it!
Was in Greece twice in the early 60’s while in the navy, did set in a few restaurants overlooking some beautiful water and had fabulous food, yes that was my first time eating Feta or Chevre (french) or Goat Cheese. been hooked ever since. Not sure just where because everyplace in Greece is beautiful and they were quick trips.
You are so right! Chevre is wonderful too!
I have an acquaintance who grew up in Florida and now lives and works in Greece. He still hasn’t regretted his decision to move. Happy New Year, Cindy!
I don’t blame him one bit! Thanks for visiting & Happy New Year to you!
I so love Greece. I would live there if I could. Beautiful!
Never say never right? You never know what’s around the corner!!! Thank you.
I love the colours and light in the photos. I haven’t got a bucket list because it would be so full it would end up too heavy to carry! Or too big to put anywhere 🙂
Mine was like that and then it got really short which sorta scared me until we added more & go backs! So a long list is a good list. It means you still have a lot you plan to do!
That’s a good way to look at it.
I love the blue of the sky and the blue of the water. Absolutely gorgeous on so many levels 🙂
Thank you for sharing these beautiful pictures!!
Thank you for appreciating them Judy!
Cindy STUNNING IMAGES!!!! What a beautiful place!
The Greek islands in particular are stunning and uncrowded if you head off the beaten track! Thank you!
I told my husband a week or so ago WHEN we go to Greece it should be by the ocean… YOU proved me right!!!
You will always be glad to went to the islands!
Gorgeous! Gorgeous! Gorgeous! 🙂
Thank you. They deserve the credit!
It looks so pretty, love to go there one day!
Hope you do! Thank you.
I felt the sunshine!
Yes! I could some of that warmth now too!
