#Crete one of the 6 best European Islands

#Crete one of the 6 best European Islands | travelling 2 Greece | Scoop.it
Of all the Greek Islands, Crete is both the largest and most varied. Historical sights are topped by the ruins of the Knossos Palace, the pinnacle of the Minoan civilisation. It's just to the south of Crete's capital, Iraklio (also called Heraklion). There are also some tremendous beaches – particularly Elafonisi in the south-western corner – while Samaria Gorge offers one of the continent's great canyon hikes. The island's also large enough to have substantial mountains, dotted with picturesque monasteries such as the culturally symbolic Moni Arkadiou.

What Riding A Donkey in Santorini Can Teach You About Life | travelling 2 Greece | Scoop.it
I recently rode a donkey in Santorini. Judge away. This may seem silly and touristy, but I LOVE donkeys. Maybe it is because I laugh like one.

Will Mykonos Save Greece?

Will Mykonos Save Greece? | travelling 2 Greece | Scoop.it
The Hellenic American Leadership Council is hereby established to chart a new course for the Greek-American community: to ensure the continuity of a distinct and distinguished Greek- American community; to promote a renewed commitment to civic...
Demetrios Georgalas's insight:

The reason for this is that “Mykonos et al” are a set of brands, both collectively and individually, that are globally recognized, promising and delivering the three S’s that French chanson Serge Gainsbourg crooned about in the 1960s and 1970s—sea, sex, and sun. That is the basest part; in fact it goes well beyond the pleasures of the flesh, to local culture both traditional and surprisingly timeless and modern, to cuisine both high and low, the volcanic majesty of Santorini, or the cubist perfection of the white Aegan village, with the peasant cuisine of places like Ikaria promising Methusela-like longevity.  To a culture and history spanning 4000 years, from Minoan Thera to Classical Delos to Byzantine Patmos to Crusader Rhodes, Venetian Syros, you get the point.  Certainly exotic, but still Western, and though plagued with strikes, Greece is free of real civil strife, unlike other Mediterranean locations.
