Well, I've taken a total of 3 (yes THREE!) weeks of vacation in the last two and a half years, one of those courtesy of Wilma. So, I am planning a 10 day trip to the Greek Islands this summer. My initial thoughts are spending days 1 and 10 travelling and spending the middle eight, half in Mykonos and half in Santorini. Anyone have any input as to other islands that are "must-see". It is much appreciated.

Santorini Island was breathtaking. Stayed at the Princess Hotel. Modern everything, very well kept and accomodating.

I've never been, but from what I understand the winds around Santorini are incredibly strong during July and August, making it inacessible by boat...at least smaller boats, not sure if cruiseships port there during those months.

~Barbara~ Italy was much cleaner than the part of Greece I visited, so you can only imagine. I wouldn't want to live anywhere but North America. Maybe Western Europe, but I like where I live. So I know what you mean. ~Tina~

A friend of mine said that his friend had beachfront property for sale...It was beautiful..but the men were eying me like a piece of meat. The road signs were all turned around.Hard to navigate through. It was beautiful to look "out" from...but I found it to be frightening and don't even let me get started on the coffee. Here is a pic from one of the better parts......just to the right of this pic there is a trash dump.It looks like the hotel threw out all of their old furniture. It was one of the more expensive places too.

lol Tina- avoid Corfu! I've been there. I was 13 at the time so ages and ages ago. Its funny people keep telling me how rough it is with the clubbing scene. I was like are we talking about the same island? She was like yeah- I've been its dead rough not a nice place to go. Where we were it was quite pretty- very hilly. I think the resort was called agious gordious- sounded like that. It must of been like the west end in town terms. Beautiful villas and nice gardens. I have to say though I was there 7 days- it was like the town, the beach and the hotel- zzzz. I can't stand those type of holidays. However, I didn't see any rough people or anything so maybe we were in a better part of the island. I wouldn't recommend the beach- looks all very nice. I went in the water for a swim. Then shouted to my dad- whats this black stuff sticking to my skin. Would you believe it- oil. :-o Some moron had cleaned out his tanker at sea. Problem with oil is it does not wash off with water it sticks like tar- so I spent an hour scraping off oil from my skin with a rock. So maybe you're right Tina- avoid Corfu. haha sarah :-p
