Greece 2011

Postby BenL » Thu Sep 01, 2011 11:33 pm

Well, we actually went on holiday for the first time in two years ;) so thought I'd add a thread here :) End of June / beginning of July, went to Greece for the first time. Started off in Athens. Obligatory Parthenon photo:

And a few more interesting ones:

Then a short flight to Mykonos for a few days. Beautiful place, the car-free narrow twisting streets reminded me a lot of Venice.

Then a ferry to Santorini, where the spa hotel was so nice, we didn't leave :)

Superb food and drink everywhere:

Same here Benny, we had a great time :) I'd definitely go back, the difficulty is working out where to go - definitely like to go back to all these places, but there's 2500 islands in total (!) and that's before you even start on the mainland :shock: :)

Thanks Craig :D Good conditions for photos with the sea and the light (although the overall standard is a little disappointing as I had a slower film than I like). The 3rd Mykonos one is from a windmill looking out over the town, and looks even better not cropped, when fully framed by that window :)
