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.

Which Greek island should you go to?

Which Greek island should you go to? | travelling 2 Greece | Scoop.it
With 1,400 beautiful islands, Greece offers travelers a tough decision way beyond raki vs wine. Allow us to help out.
Demetrios Georgalas's insight:

Greece's 1,400 islands -- 230 of them inhabited -- are one of the Mediterranean's most beautiful assets.

From the Ionian, up by Albania in the northwest, to the Dodecanese, near Turkey in the southeast, they offer vacations you can't get many other places.

Each of the island groups has its unique allure, plus some of the most picturesque seascapes on Earth.

But for sheer variety in a small radius, proximity to Athens' ferry port at Piraeus and the best inter-island boat connections, none compete with the Cyclades.

Decorating with a Mediterranean Influence | Decoist

Decorating with a Mediterranean Influence | Decoist | travelling 2 Greece | Scoop.it
If you’re like most people, when you hear the word “Mediterranean” you instantly begin salivating for deliciously flavorful cuisine and full-bodied red wines. You may think of white washed buildings atop steep cliffs and the blue lapping waves of Santorini. Maybe you think of the patchwork fields full of Tuscan wineries, the space age architecture of Valencia or the twinkling city lights of Monaco. You may even conjure up the images of the picturesque white sandy beaches and teal waters of the Turkish coast or the bold tapestries hung in a Moroccan marketplace. Whatever it is, the Mediterranean culture has had a profound impact on the world in the form of food, music and, of course, home décor.

Greek islands, safari dreams

Greek islands, safari dreams | travelling 2 Greece | Scoop.it
Santorini is in a group of islands called the Cyclades which also include Paros, Antiparos, Naxos, Ios, Delos, Tinos, Anafi, and Folegandros. It is a very beautiful island and you will probably find the days will fly by. While all the islands look close together on a map, getting between them is not so easy. There are plenty of ferries, but few trips that would allow for a day on another island with enough time to explore. The nearest island with day return ferries is Ios.
