Greek Islands

One of my favorite places to holiday are the Greek Islands, they hold some fantastic childhood memories for me and unfortunately tourism has turned some of the most beautiful places into party islands, which is such a shame as they have lost the culture and diversity that makes Greece so special. Luckily there are untouched places which are still so amazing.
The thing I love most about the Greek Islands (apart from the stunning beaches) are the Greeks themselves, they are some of the friendliest and welcoming people I have ever met! My sister lived on the island of Corfu for a few years, and the friends she introduced us to were so nice and welcomed us into their community.
The Greek culture is amazing too, if you stay away from the over toured places you can experience this yourselves. Whether it be joining in with the waiters dancing Zorba the Greek, plate smashing at weddings or just sampling the amazing smorgasbord of food on offer. The food and service you experience here is second to none, I remember my last family holiday to Skiathos, we had a beautiful dinner in the taverna near our hotel, and every time we asked for the bill we were given a round of ouzo shots! Needless to say we were rather worse for wear when we eventually left 😉
Given the choice for a short hall relaxing holiday I will always look into islands I haven’t been to yet as they all have their special qualities.  Always first to explore our surroundings I am on the look out for the nearest private beach or cove, and its hard to describe the feeling I get when looking out onto the sparkling turquoise water, with my feet just in the water among the hundreds of beautiful ( but not at all shy) fish, but the word serene comes to mind.
The Greek islands will always hold a place close to my heart, and I cant wait to visit again – Daisy x
