The last leg

I returned on Sunday, and contrary to my twitter broadcast, Preveza airport was very efficient and friendly.

Sailing in the Ionian Sea

This holiday had been a long time ambition of mine in order to see Ithaca, the legendry home of Oddessyus from the sea. Actually I wanted to land there and explore, but for various reasons, this didn't happen, and at least I have an excuse to return.

On the Beat

I chartered the boat from Sunsail, as part of their Kalamos flotilla and flew from Gatwick to Preveza in North West of Greece. We arrived in the evening and had a meal in one of the local taverna's in Paleros, a nearby village which also has an ATM. Our route involved sailing from Vounaki to Port Atheni in Meganissi, then onto Kalmos via the north channel, out into the inland sea and back to Port Leone. We then sailed to one house bay and east of Ithaca north to return to Port Atheni. We then sailed around Meganissi to Spartkhori and then back to Vounaki. I prepared a google map...

I had one of my best beers ever at Port Atheni,

Port Atheni

not because it was a better beer, but because Port Atheni is such a pretty place, the sun was shining and we'd had such a great day. The rest of the pictures are in my Ionian Sea set on http://www.flickr.com/, my planning page is on my snipsnap bliki's Greece page.

Safely Home

Home safely, one of the best, i.e. on schedule journies home from Greece ever after a relaxing, do not very much holiday.

 

The Point at Kalogria

 

The point at Kalogria Bay, and a sunset from last year; the family wouldn't let me use the camera this year and my phone shots aren't so good.

 

Sunset over Stoupa Bay

 

More pictures on flickr from this year & last (2005). As ever, I'm grateful to our Holiday company, "Greek Options".

Another article backdated to a time nearer its occurrence.

Write to you soon

I'm off to Greece for my Holidays. We're going back to Stoupa, where we were last year.

Hopefully, I'll come back refreshed. If I take any pictures, I'll post some here and the rest at my flickr.

Anyway, no internet - so my last article for a while.
