Greek Island Hopping 2015

December 31, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

I managed to sneak a wee summer holiday between weddings back in September and it was amazing! Three islands over 12 days with great weather, good food and brilliant company along with the chance to photograph purely for fun. The islands visited were Astypalea, Kalymnos and Patmos. There is something magical about the Greek islands, with each one having it's own unique charm, though all have a shared and rich history with great people, good food and amazing scenes to capture.
 

Going slightly off the beaten track also really adds to the experience. I loved the windmills on Astypalea as they were so photogenic and the second moonlight shot in this post (which is my favourite) was taken from the hotel balcony!
 

Being on the wrong side of Astypalea for sunsets I decided it would be a nice change to see a sunrise, so I got up at stupid o'clock for the shot of the sun and the two smaller islands, a bit like the 40% proof ouzo in a later shot - both seemed like a good idea at the time!
 

I have been to Kalymnos before and returning felt a bit like arriving home, it was great catching up with old friends who instantly made me feel right at home and part of the family oh and the food is just to die for! Mythos beer almost seems magically medicinal. I will also never forget or tire of seeing the sun setting over Tolendos.
 

Patmos was a relaxing end to the break though I do clearly need to brush up on my backgammon skills as I was well and truly beaten!
 

Hope you enjoy a few holiday snaps of my travels!
