Full On Corinth Tourist

There are a couple of things worth putting in your eyeholes if you're in Corinth, one of which is Ancient Corinth, an excavation a few kilometres from the new city of Corinth. Y'know, assuming you're not complete over really, really old broken shit by now. A bit more broken shit for your viewing pleasure. The [...]

Back To The Mainland

I feel like ferry schedules in Greece are more of a, I don't know, a serving suggestion perhaps? Sure, we can do this journey in 2 hours and 25 minutes. In fact that's what we'll advertise it as. But fucked if that's actually what we're going to do it in despite the handbrake turns into [...]

Island Hopping – Santorini Part 2

The done thing on Santorini is to put the caldera in your eyeholes from every available angle. It's a volcanic island, there's volcanic craters on an island in the middle of the vast bay, and the shape of the bay itself was caused by a whopping great eruption, and that's the flooded caldera you've come [...]

Island Hopping – Santorini Part 1

It's like you can't have a really good experience on an island without it then being counteracted by the next. Santor-fucking-rini, honestly, what the actual fuck? We'd intended to stay at the campsite in Fira but the reviews were crap and we still had that shithole on Paros on our minds. So we went wayyyyy [...]

Island Hopping – Naxos Part 2

We woke up on the Sunday and decided to nope out of any manner of immediate movement. Fuck it, it's the Lord's day and she'd want us to be happy and anyway, we're on holiday. The campsite is slap bang opposite the beach so we lounged in bed (or on the inflatable mattresses that pass [...]

Island Hopping – Delos & Mykonos

We really, really wanted to visit Delos, a super important archealogical island close to Mykonos. What we really, really didn't want to do was stay on Mykonos for two nights on account of it being obnoxiously expensive. The kind of expensive whereby you can only sob as you hand over anything north of €120 for [...]

Island Hopping – Naxos Part 1

Oh Naxos, you absolute dream! It's bigger than the other islands we've visited, more mountainous and dramatic with the kind of narrow, winding roads that trigger all manner of fear of heights as you climb higher and higher on your little scooter. Every curve, every hairpin turn is an act of faith. And steering, obviously. [...]
